Thank you for writing about cancer. I have an appointment with my oncologist next week and I’m giving him my Dear John letter. I am unwilling to live with the horrible side effects of endocrine therapy for the next 10 years and simply live my life. Especially when my pharmacist friend told me the number needed to treat was in the upper 160s. I surrendered my breasts and ovaries to cancer, and that’s enough. The low carb lifestyle has been a challenge, but with what I assume you’re going to continue to write about, I will give it another whirl. Look forward to your newsletter every week.

I watched a documentary on Amazon a few years ago called “Cancer Can Be Killed” a Jeff Witzeman Film. (Just checked and it is listed now as “currently unavailable.” Anyhow he goes on to say that his wife has bladder cancer and the Doctor wants to remove her bladder. They do some research and her sister had been “cured” in Europe at an alternative health clinic. She ends up opting to do the same. The flight, hotel, treatment I think were about $28k and they cured her cancer with infrared heat and vitamin infusions. She comes back to the states and her Doctor is quite surprised when she is cancer free...

They end up saying that in America the infrared treatment is available but only with chemo, as they don’t want any success with any voodoo treatments that big pharma can’t profit off of. Further, the alternative treatment plans in America that do have some success usually get discredited as not a large enough profile or a fluke. Larger institutions are even not doing their clients justice in doing things like having a dish of candy in the lobby (as you mentioned sugar feeds the cancers).

I’m sure that there are plenty of honest folks out to do a good job and cure the diseases that plague all the people that are suffering but as long as the cure isn’t profitable for some it doesn’t stand a chance and doesn’t get any good publicity.

I lost both parents to cancer in 1969. Since they were separated, I only got to watch my Mother's experience, but that was more than enough for this 13 year-old. It's depressing to think of how many resources, time (our most precious resource) and lives have been spent chasing one model of cancer when there was another one that could/should have been investigated.

In terms of the standard cancer treatments, I'm of same or similar mind. If there are standard treatments for "easy to cure" cancers with great long-term track records, I'd considered those. Otherwise, no, and carry on.

Interesting anecdotes amongst older expats here in Thailand. Even though treatment is world-class here as much as anywhere 1st world, and a fraction of the cost, many forego them anyway even if they have international health insurance. (International health insurance is really cost-effective, covers cancer, and ALL policies I've ever looked at cover you worldwide with a single excluded country: USA. That gives you a clue as to how effed...)

So, again, anecdotes...so there are those who eventually die, but had decent quality of life here until that point, and those who basically just upped their walking the beach, swimming in the ocean, sun exposure on bare skin...and for many of the older dudes...indulging in the 20-sumthin' set if you know what I mean...kicking quality of life up a notch or three...hey, give a dyin' man a break!


And as you would expect, there are stories about how cancers that got ignored, just went away.

I've been trying to make sense of the COVID-19 pandemic by considering it as a large complex system. As more evidence emerges, it seems increasingly plausible that this is a military operation. Here are some possible reasons why:

• The military has been studying biological attacks for decades and has funded research labs both at home and abroad.

• Preventing a biological attack is near impossible, there are only defensive options available such as vaccines, decontamination, filtration and prophylactics.

• Developing targeted vaccines quickly is critical for biowarfare.

• Military research into rapid vaccine development (i.e., mRNA) has been underway for many years and receives significant funding.

• To field test the effectiveness of an mRNA vaccine, a pathogen with recognizable symptoms but low lethality could be released on an enemy's territory, especially near one of their biolabs.

• Before releasing the pathogen, the vaccine must be ready for rapid deployment.

• Once released, the vaccine can be tested on an enormous cohort of people; hence the need for mandates, coercion, funding, propaganda, prevention of treatments (to ensure the infection spreads and vaccine effectiveness is not impacted)*, etc.

If this scenario were true, it would explain the responses of governments and organizations. There are likely many culpable people involved, and far more useful idiots, but I doubt that those that were the instigators of these horrors will ever be brought to justice.

You mentioned re: Fauci "So why did he say hydroxychloroquine doesn’t work for SARS-CoV-2 when he knew it did or at least very likely might? In the end, it turned out to be an effective frontline treatment." Is it true that introducing a 'vaccine' is illegal if there is an existing, superior treatment?

Could that also be the case for how assiduously vitamin D itself was buried - a patent, willful ignorance of grade 8 science and our hard-won lessons via TB sanatoriums?

Is this why they insisted on legal immunity? Should an action be brought against them, for simple criminal acts? Why sue them when they should be indicted, tried and sentenced - by their colleges on up to San Quentin.

Millions died from a proscribed Big Pharma experiment - that's pure crime.

My late father was a doctor. He never wanted all the advanced treatments etc for anything and he said it amazed him that patients wanted these therapies because all it did was bankrupt you and guarantee your last days were miserable. He only pushed for the aggressive stuff in young patients. Many of his doctor friends were of the same opinion-they refused chemo etc. Non doctors have way too much faith in medical treatments.

At the same time, most people discount the importance of diet. And yet...take your dog or cat to the vet and the first question is what are you feeding your pet? It is astounding that doctors rarely ask you and when they do give advice, it's all this SAD diet or low fat nonsense.

Here’s an interview with the incredible doctor, who cured me and thousands of others of metastatic cancer. He was not a big fan of a ketogenic diet for cancer. https://youtu.be/t0i-AdCm-Mg?list=UUwbrSKPyqtgolrRKcrfjRFQ

Hey Mike,

Regarding the poll, my first though yesterday was I can't participate because as you know, I dumped booze entirely coming up on 7 months now, after 2 decades of "too much too often."

And it excludes nicotine...

But then I rethought. As a stand-in for the booze, I guess, I became a really serious coffee drinker, like all the damn time. Liters per day.

I cut way, way down on that because of your mention some issues back at how coffee was disturbing your sleep. Sleep improved.

But then I realized there was a confounding variable. It was about the time I emailed you about Yacon, and I was eating the tubers, and I did so because appetite had gone way down, looked into it, and turned out the experimental results were similar [and profound] to Wegovy.

So there's a possibility that the Yacon was helpful in that cutting down, and I have another data point and that's since I moved from Phuket and hit the road, and it was a 2-week ordeal before settling in a new place, I had neither the tubers nor the syrup (which I don't like taking anyway...I much prefer the cool, crisp, curious flavor, and mild sweetness of the tubers) and my coffee consumption has shot way up again, and I'm on about the 3rd day in a row of getting up at 03.30 and just staying up and getting to the desk/laptop. (That marathon run-on sentence there is coffee fueled, now 4 hours and many cups in this morning.)

So, I gave the poll a "somewhat" and it's time to source those tubers here in Pattaya.

Incidentally, Yacon is a thing here in Thailand. Imported from Peru, they grow it. In fact, I was back in the village in Sisaket province where I built a house and discovered that one of the villagers grows them, enormous ones (but they don't have the quality of flavor the medium-size do).

Here's a cool video about bạw h̄ima (บัวหิมะ translates to “snow lotus.”) here in Thailand. You'll understand it, even if you don't understand a word of Thai.

Dr. Eades, regarding Keto diet and cancer, I'll be curious about your thoughts. In my opinion, I think following the Keto diet is difficult. Keeping carbs to 20g or less per day is extremely restrictive. Also, does the body get all of the nutrients it needs to heal itself from food or does a person have to supplement on the Keto diet? Then, how absorbable are supplements? I thought whole foods were a better source for nutrition than supplements even with the additional few carbs. Dr. Terry Wahls, you likely have heard of her - I believe she's in the "low carb space", recommends 9 cups of vegetables (3 c cruciferous, 3 c colorful, and 3 c leafy greens per day) for the body's self-healing. I've been following this part of her protocol and carbs are around 70-100g per day which is still relatively low compared to the standard American diet, but would not be "Keto", so I assume glucose is still the main source for fuel even with that amount of carbs. For what it's worth, I have been eating a "loose" low carb diet for more than 10 years. I felt very healthy, maintained a healthy weight, was an active tennis player. I'm 57. I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer Sept 2022, completed the chemo treatment and I'm still pursuing alternative treatments because of the high rate of recurrence likely with this cancer. I was sorry to read about MD's sister...we all know people in that boat and it's paradoxical, treatment has improved in some ways, and yet, it hasn't improved in other ways. For the amount of money thrown at this disease, I would think we'd have better statistics. I enjoy your newsletter. Thanks for writing and sharing your perspective. All the best to you and MD!

Hi Mike,

Really enjoyed reading The Arrow this week, especially about Covid-19 as here in the UK a lot is being published in the Telegraph with the WhatsApp messages from Matt Hancock, the health minister during the ‘pandemic’ - very shocking. It should be in the World’s press.

So interesting about cancer. I found only one typo re Peter Gøtzsche: "He just published a piece on it for the Institute for Scientific Freedom. Her’s how it starts:”

Do you still have time with all the Arrows and writing the new book to look at your proteinpower.com emails ? I sent you one a week ago about a little problem I had with Substack, and also my success making L.reuteri yoghurt.

all the best,

Best one yet, Mike - love the covid stuff, the cancer stuff, I subscribe to Zoe who's such a great researcher (and all-round nice person) and then there's Doc Watson - great all round. All that and only one typo - or maybe I raced through too fast and missed something.

Thanks, as always, for your work,


" . . . so it they stopped her chemo . . ."
