Poison Your Prostate? Are They Crazy?!?

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

If you’ve been diagnosed with prostate cancer, you know how scary it can be.

And you’ll do anything to get it out of your body.

Unfortunately, mainstream medicine is just waiting with sickening treatments like chemo and radiation, surgery that can leave you incontinent or ruin your sex life, or dreadful hormone therapies.

Now they’ve upped the crazy…

They want to inject you with deadly bacteria that puts over 19,000 people in the hospital every year with uncontrollable fevers and diarrhea so dangerous it could even kill you.

This deadly bacterium is called salmonella, and it’s the leading cause of foodborne illness.

For this study, a selected strain was injected into mice. To prevent the mice from falling ill, scientists altered the strain to be harmless.

Except it’s not… unless you consider genetically modified organisms to be harmless.

And if the thought of being injected with genetically modified bacteria isn’t terrifying enough… it turns out it doesn’t even cure prostate cancer.

You see, the researchers chose salmonella because it’s sneaky. Strains of these stealthy bacteria are able to penetrate through cell walls and then replicate inside of them. This means salmonella can infiltrate cells and then take them over.

This is great news if the bacteria can specifically target cancer cells.

And it seems in this study, the GMO bacteria were partially successful in doing that — the mice that were injected with the altered strain showed a 20 percent decrease in prostate tumor size.

However, the dangerous bacteria didn’t eliminate the tumor or stop the growth of cancer cells.

This means you’re taking a big risk for a small payoff.

Even though these bacteria are classified as “harmless,” that doesn’t mean there couldn’t be complications. Bacteria often mutate. If this happens, they can be hard to kill and could even take over your healthy cells.

Plus, humans aren’t mice.

In some cases, results from mouse studies can often translate to humans. But there’s a big problem with this one…

The mice used for the experiment were also genetically modified.

So there’s chance that much of this experiment’s success hinged on finely tuned genetic factors. Genes this specific could make it difficult to replicate these results.

Lots of times, the best solution is to not rush into a treatment at all.

Studies have shown prostate cancer is often slow-growing and overtreated. That’s why even some mainstream docs are starting to recommend “watchful waiting,” which sounds like a more logical suggestion than injecting yourself with deadly bacteria.

Live well,
