Is Cancer a Fungus?

To Find a Cure for Cancer We Must Discover the True Nature of the Disease
To find the cure for cancer, we really need to know what we are dealing with. Why do cells suddenly start replicating out of control? Why are cancers often different colors, not normally found in the human body? Why do cancers spread through the body?
More than a million species of fungi exist on earth, which can be classified into two broad groups: yeasts and moulds. Fungi have various shapes, colors and textures,can live on land in the open air or in the aqueous conditions of rivers, ponds seas and inside living creatures. Fungi, have the capacity to produce a fruiting body, reproductive spores, a covering like skin, arteries, and internal fluid much like blood.
While plants, animals and humans are alive and well, the fungi around us are unable to overcome the natural defense mechanisms of higher life forms. But once death occurs, the fungi are the primary tool nature uses to reduce all that once lived into the basic elements from which they were made. This is what biologists call the carbon cycle.
However, the exception to this simple equation of life and death is that the fungi can attack plants and animals, while they are alive. Fungal spores are everywhere, millions of tiny particles are in the air, and the food we eat. They can enter the body in many ways, through the intestinal tract, the nose and lungs, and organs exposed to the world at large. We generally do not develop an infection from these intruders. However, when the immune system is compromised, the tissues are poorly oxygenated, the body is malnourished, these spores become the dominant life form and begin to grow.
Dr. Otto Warburg (Nobel Prize Winner) found that simply reducing the oxygen supply to normal healthy tissue, it became cancerous. What he was really experiencing was that fungal spores, hidden in most living tissue, were able to grow aneorobically, becoming the dominant life form. Normal healthy tissue needs oxygen to live and grow, cancer and fungus cells can use sugar as their primary source of energy for growth, this is called anaerobic respiration or fermentation.
Skin damaged by the sun becomes more vulnerable to melanomas and other types of skin cancers. Healthy skin can protect itself and the body from these fungal spores in the air and environment around us. Damaged skin becomes vulnerable to fungal spores which can grow on the skin, enter into the body and spread the infection.
Tobacco is processed by fermentation with yeasts. Smokers are inhaling fungal spores, mycotoxins which enter the lungs but at first are unable to grow in this highly oxygenated area. However, after many years of smoking, the lungs are covered in tar and little oxygen can get to the surface. This is when the spores become the more dominant life form in the lungs, they start to grow and when the reach their maturity, spread spores into the bloodstream and cancer throughout the body.
Colon cancer may be caused by a diet, rich in yeasted foods (breads etc.), high in sugar and refined carbohydrates, (which feed and accelerate cancer growth) but lacking in the fiber necessary to keep the food moving through the body. Any slight damage to the delicate lining of the colon could allow the spores to enter the tissue. At first the immature cancers are polyps, tiny mushroom shaped growths. However, when they mature, they need more food to nourish themselves and stimulate the body to produce a blood supply, to feed the cancer.
Cyclosporine is a drug made from fungi found in soil. Researchers have discovered that this drug causes cancer. Not only does it suppress the immune system, but it is actually infecting the body with fungal spores.
Substances found effective in treating fungal infections have also proved to be active against cancer. The following are examples of natural and chemical substances, active against both fungus and cancer: Griseofulvin, Berberine, Artemisia, Lapachol, Aloe Vera, Bee Propolis, Sesame Oil.
I believe that through studying the similarities between fungus and cancer, we can find substances, natural or chemical, that will differentiate between normal cells and cancer cells and kill only cancer cells.
We already have these substances, some of which are mentioned above, but do we have the will to put our love for mankind ahead of our love for money? While current cancer treatments make so much money for oncologists and pharmaceutical companies, will any other treatment or understanding of the disease really catch anyone's attention?
To find the cure for cancer, first of all we must decide if we really want to help save lives, or make ourselves very rich
Many doctors, biochemists and scientists have been making discoveries about cancer and curing patients, only to be punished, struck off, and sometimes imprisoned for curing patients by unconventional methods as opposed to chemotherapy and radiation. In this article, I refer to some of those who support the theory that cancer is a fungus.
Dr. T. Simoncini's Sodium Bicarbonate Treatment
Dr. T. Simoncini, an Italian oncologist, has been treating cancer patients for many years with a simple solution of Sodium Bicarbonate. After years of cancer research he came to the conclusion that cancer is caused by fungus of the Candida species. Dr. Simoncini was eventually struck off for using his unconventional treatment methods and has since written a compelling book on his theories - 'Cancer is a Fungus'. Please visit
