Sunlight and cancer incidence - can sunlight prevent cancer?
excerpted from BBC News
A small amount of sunshine can help reduce the risk of breast, colon and prostate cancers, according to US scientists.
Sunlight is a key source of vitamin D, and scientists told the American Association for the Advancement of Science annual meeting in Boston the vitamin plays a crucial role in regulating the production of cells, a mechanism which is absent in cancer...
Dr William Grant, an independent researcher from Virginia, has examined the difference in cancer rates dependent on where people live.
Dr Grant's US work, using data from the Atlas of Cancer Mortality, found death rates for breast, colon and ovarian cancers in Boston and New England were almost twice as high as they were in the southwest from 1950 to 1994.
He found the same link, with varying increased risk, for 13 cancers including bladder, kidney, stomach and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
He estimates there have been 23,000 deaths from cancer per year - taking the difference in UV radiation between northern and southern states - which could have been prevented if people had had enough vitamin D [created by exposure of skin to sunlight’s UV-B fraction]. He suggests this year, the figure could be 30,000.
Based on his US findings, he estimates a quarter of breast cancer deaths in the UK are a result of vitamin D deficiency.
He told BBC News Online: "I believe my research should be considered a clarion call for more investigation by the health establishment on the benefits of solar radiation and UV B."
A prominent cancer journal directly contradicts official advice about sunlight. According to a study published in Cancer (March, 2002; 94:1867-75) conducted by Dr Wiiliam Grant, insufficient exposure to ultraviolet radiation may be an important risk factor for cancer in Western Europe and North America.
The research examined cancer mortality in the United States. Deaths from a range of cancers of the reproductive and digestive systems were approximately twice as high in New England as in the southwest, despite a diet that varies little between regions. An examination of 506 regions found a close inverse correlation between cancer mortality and levels of ultraviolet B light. The likeliest mechanism for a protective effect of sunlight is vitamin D, which is synthesized by the body in the presence of ultraviolet B. According to Dr. Grant's study, northern parts of the United States may be dark enough in winter that vitamin D synthesis actually shuts down completely.
There are 13 malignancies that show this inverse correlation, mostly reproductive and digestive cancers. The strongest inverse correlation is with breast, colon, and ovarian cancer. Other cancers apparently affected by sunlight include tumors of the bladder, uterus, esophagus, rectum, and stomach.
Although the study focused on white Americans, the same geographical trend affects black Americans, whose overall cancer rates are significantly higher. Darker skinned people require more sunlight to synthesize vitamin D.
"Most people believe that sun exposure causes cancer," says Dr. Joseph Mercola (www.mercola.com, one of the most visited health websites in the world), “but nothing could be further from the truth. Exposure to sun actually decreases cancer rates". Dr. Mercola believes that sun exposure does contribute to skin cancer, but skin cancers are more likely related to the large distortion most people have in their omega-6 to omega-3 fat ratio. It is the high excess of omega-6 fats in most people's diet that puts them at a much higher risk of developing skin cancer when exposed to excess sun. The “solution is not to slather sun block on, since sun block can be quite toxic and should be avoided by most people. The sensible approach would be to limit sun exposure so you never get sunburned. Sunburn in conjunction with excess omega-6 fats increase your risk for skin cancer.”
“But, even with the potential increase in skin cancer, most skin cancers are relatively benign when compared with breast, colon, and prostate cancers that lack of sun exposure is associated with. So you can't have it both ways. Avoid the sun and don't change your diet and you may lower your risk of skin cancer, but increase your risk of far more common and deadlier cancers. So why not change the fat content of your diet and use sensible sun exposure guidelines and reap the benefits of sunlight?”
From reading various literature on the subject, it appears that Vitamin D is one of the essential nutrients most lacking in the average Westerner’s body due to a combination of latitude, a predominantly indoor-based lifestyle, and societal clothing obligations. More from Dr. Mercola’s article Sunlight Actually Prevents Cancer at www.mercola.com/2002/apr/3/sun_prevents_cancer.htm:
“The vitamin D in milk, and that put in most vitamins is vitamin D2 and is synthetic. Vitamin D2 is also called ergocalciferol. It is not the vitamin D that you want to supplement with. It is not nearly as good as the vitamin D obtained from sunlight or natural food sources like cod liver oil which is called vitamin D3 or calciferol.
The best place to get vitamin D is from UV-B from sunlight. However, darker skinned people require 10 to 20 times the sun exposure length than lighter skinned people do to build up the same amount of vitamin D.
That is one of the major reasons why African Americans have a much higher rate of cancer in North America than other ethnic groups.
Most people, who have skin that is deeply pigmented, should take extra precautions when living in North America for health reasons. The only work around for them to maintain their health would be to optimize their vitamin D levels.
It is also very important to realize that the RDA of vitamin D of 400 units is absolutely inadequate for most people who do not have exposure to regular sunshine. Most people may need up to 10,000 units per day for a short time to build their vitamin D levels up to healthy ranges.
One must be very clear however that this should only be done under supervision with a health care professional who can monitor vitamin D levels. Vitamin D in excessive doses can be quite dangerous as it can cause calcium to deposit in your soft tissues and kidney and this is not easy to turn around.”
Cancer Prevention & Sunlight
Excerpted from the book "The Healing Sun", 1999, by Richard Hobday, MSc, PhD. Dr. Hobday is a member of the British Register of Complementary Practitioners and has studied traditional Chinese Medicine and Chinese exercise systems in China. He has many years experience of solar design in buildings and is a leading authority on the history of sunlight therapy.
In some respects cancer is to industrialized countries today what tuberculosis was to the 18th and 19th century: a major cause of death and misery which defeats the best efforts of conventional medicine. Rather ironically the way cancer has been, and continues to be, managed is very similar to the way 'surgical tuberculosis' was dealt with a century ago -- before heliotherapy was rediscovered. [Heliotherapy is the treatment of disease by exposing the body to sunlight.] Then, as now, all of the emphasis was on removing the manifestation of the disease and not on enhancing the patient's ability to overcome it. ...
As far as conventional medicine is concerned, the preferred methods treating cancer are surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy. Cancer cells are removed or destroyed and no attempt is made to eliminate the disease by strengthening the body's natural defense systems. Indeed, chemotherapy and radiation do exactly the opposite. Against this background it is understandable that people are turning to non-interventionist 'conservative' techniques as an alternative, or supplement, to surgical and chemical remedies.
A number of alternative therapies have been developed for cancer which claim to use the body's own healing powers rather than drugs or machine-medicine, with varying degrees of success. Sunlight has been used to treat cancer and there is evidence that goes back over half a century which suggests that sunlight exposure prevents deep-seated cancers from developing.
Now, although sunlight can cause basal cell and squamous cell skin cancers in susceptible people, there is a very good correlation between sunlight exposure and low incidence of internal cancers. Death rates from cancer increase with distance from the equator. Or, to put it another way, the nearer you live to the equator the less chance you have of developing an internal cancer. This association has been clearly demonstrated in a number of studies such as the one carried out in 1941 in the United States by Dr Frank Apperly. He examined the statistics on cancer deaths across North America and Canada and found that compared with cities between 10 and 30 degrees latitude, cities between 30 and 40 degrees latitude averaged 85 per cent higher overall cancer death rates; cities between 40 and 50 degrees latitude averaged 118 per cent higher cancer death rates, and cities between 50 and 60 degrees latitude averaged 150 per cent higher cancer death rates.
Dr Apperly also looked at the relationship between sunlight, ambient temperature and skin cancer. He concluded that sunlight produces an immunity to cancer in general and, in places where the mean temperature is less than about 5.5° C, or 42° F, even to skin cancer. However, at mean temperatures higher than this, solar radiation causes more skin cancer despite the increased general immunity to the disease.
So, the nearer one is to the equator, the less chance there is of developing cancer of the breast, colon, lung, etc. There is an increased risk of developing skin cancer but this decreases in cooler climates with mean temperatures below 5.5° C, or 42° F. Dr Apperly appears to have been the first scientist to investigate the relationship between ambient temperature and skin cancer. He also suggested, as others have done before and since, that exposure to sunlight might be an effective way to reduce the number of deaths from internal cancers. He concluded his review of the statistics as follows:
A closer study of the action of solar radiation on the body might well reveal the nature of cancer immunity.
There have been a number of scientific studies in the last 20 years which support the view that sunlight can inhibit cancer, and it is clear that the mortality and incidence of breast cancer and colon cancer in North America and other areas of the world increases with increasing latitude. In 1992, Dr Gordon Ainsleigh published a paper in the journal Preventive Medicine in which he reviewed 50 years worth of medical literature on cancer and the sun. He concluded that the benefits of regular sun exposure appear to outweigh by a considerable degree the risks of squamous-basal skin cancer ... and melanoma. He found trends in epidemiological studies suggesting that widespread adoption of regular moderate sunbathing would result in approximately a one-third lowering of breast and colon cancer death rates in the United States. Colon cancer and breast cancer are the second and third leading causes of cancer deaths in North America and Dr Ainsleigh estimated that about 30,000 cancer deaths would be prevented each year if moderate sunbathing on a regular basis became the norm.
The subject was reviewed again in another American paper published in 1995, entitled Sunlight - Can It Prevent as well as Cause Cancer? The authors were concerned that medical research was largely directed towards investigating the harmful effects of sunlight on fair-skinned individuals, and not on people with dark skin who lived in, or had emigrated to, parts of the United States where the incidence of sunlight was low. They concluded from their review that although there was no definitive proof that sunlight and vitamin D protect humans from the development and progression of carcinomas of the breast, colon or prostate, there were good grounds for questioning any broad condemnation of moderate sun light exposure. They felt that for some Americans -- those with heavily pigmented skin -- lack of solar radiation could be rather more of a problem than too much: that it may well contribute to the high incidence of prostate cancer in black American men and the particularly aggressive progress of cancer of the breast in black women. The final sentence of this paper is as telling, in its own way, as the one at the conclusion of Dr Apperly's paper of 1940 quoted above. The authors suggested that the:
... study of the beneficial effects of sunlight on cancer progression should be removed from the realm of mysticism and thrust in to the scientific arena of experimental studies.
Vitamin D performs a number of important functions besides its role in mineral absorption. By regulating the level of calcium in the blood Vitamin D influences the nervous system, as calcium aids nerve impulse transmission and muscle contraction. It influences the secretion of insulin by the pancreas and plays an important part in regulating the body's immune system. Vitamin D is also involved in the growth and maturation of cells: in laboratory experiments the biologically active form of vitamin D has been shown to inhibit the growth of cancer cells.
Significantly, recent laboratory research confirms that vitamin D deficiency may be an important factor in the emergence of cancer of the breast as well as cancer of the colon, prostate and, to a lesser extent, leukemia, lymphoma and melanoma. Scientists are getting to grips with the mechanisms which account for vitamin D's capacity to retard the progress of cancer. So, the findings of epidemiological studies of sunlight and cancer are supported by work in the laboratory. There are trials under way to see if the vitamin D can be used to treat prostate cancer and other malignancies. There do not, however, appear to have been any major clinical trials to establish whether sunlight can be used in cancer therapy, although there have been reports of its use.
The Fat's Syndrome & Photons As Solar Energy
A lecture held on 6 April 1972 at the 8th "Vie et Action" (Life and Action) Congress in Tours, 5-9 April 1972.
excerpted from Flax Oil as a True Aid against Arthritis, Heart Infarction, Cancer & Other Diseases by Dr. Johanna Budwig
Sunbeams, photons, electrons. . .What are they?
Sun rays reach the earth as an inexhaustible source of energy. The sources of power in mineral oil, coal, green plant-foods and fruits are based on the energy supplied by the sun's radiation. In 1960, a Japanese physicist published the following: "God was indeed the Creator when he said: Let there be light!" Your fellow countryman, the holder of the Nobel Prize and a highly deserving physicist, Louis de Broglie, writes: "If we let our imagination run free, we can easily picture that at the beginning of time, the morning after the divine ‘Fiat Lux’, light, unique in the world, with gradual but continual concentration, created the material universe we today acknowledge around us. And perhaps one day, when the time has come to pass, the universe will regain its original purity and once more dissolve back into light."
Light is the fastest emissary from star to star. There is nothing faster than light. Light rushes along with time. It lives eternally. Physicists emphasize too, that the photon, the quantum, the tiniest part of a sunbeam, is eternal. Life is unimaginable without the photon. It is in continual movement. Stopping this is not possible. The photon is filled with colour. It can, when present in large numbers, change colour and frequency. The photon is recognized as the purest form of energy; the purest wave and, in continual movement, it can combine in resonance with a second photon to form a ‘short-life' particle. This particle-known as an "O" particle--can once more break itself down into two photons, without mass, as pure wave in movement. This forms the basis for the wonderful interplay between light and matter. It is not possible to pinpoint the location of a photon. The theory of relativity rests on this foundation.
The photon, the smallest quantum of sunlight, gave rise to Max Planck's and Einstein's formation of the quantum theory which is of such significance today. This photon, so active, so dynamic, so powerful, can be captured by suitable electrons. What does this mean?
Electrons are already a constituent of matter, even though they are also in continual movements. They vibrate continually on their own wavelength. They have their own frequency, like radio receivers which are set at a certain wavelength. The electron orbits in matter around a nucleus. The heavy matter in the nucleus is charged with positive electricity. In contrast to this, the electron carries a negative charge. The two; the positively charged nucleus and the negatively charged electron attract each other by means of their electrical opposition. But the electron, always in motion, never approaches the nucleus close enough to be drawn out of its own orbit. It maintains a certain freedom of movement within its prescribed orbit. Electrons love photons. They attract the photons by means of their magnetic fields. When an electrical charge moves, this always produces a magnetic field. The moving photons also possess magnetic fields. Both fields; the magnetic field of the electron and that of the photon, attract each other, when the wavelengths are in tune. The wavelength of the photon-which it can change-must so fit into the circular wave of the electron that the orbit is always completely filled by the wave. This feature is, when we consider its physical expression, its biological and even its philosophical consequences, extremely interesting. This basic physical law, according to Niels Bohr, means that no matter can change its condition without absorption or radiation of electro-magnetic waves-and the photon is an electro-magnetic wave-without the wavelength corresponding to that of absorption or radiation frequency-to its own radiation frequency.
Matter always has its own vibration, and so, of course, does the living body. The absorption of energy must correspond to one's own wavelength.
Sunbeams are very much in accord with humans. It is no coincidence that we love the sun. The resonance in our biological substance is so strongly set to absorb the sun's energy that those physicists, the quantum biologists, who concern themselves with this scientifically complex field, say that: There is nothing else on earth with a higher concentration of photons of the sun's energy than man. This concentration of the sun's energy-very much an iso-energetic point for humans, with their eminently suitable wavelengths-is improved when we eat food which has electrons which in turn attract the electromagnetic waves of sunbeams, of photons. A high amount of these electrons which are on the wavelength of the sun's energy, are to be found, for example, in seed oils. Scientifically, these oils are even known as electron-rich essential highly unsaturated fats. But, when people began to treat fats to make them keep longer; no-one stopped to consider the consequences of this for the existence and higher development of the human race. These vitally important amounts of electrons, with their continual movement and wonderful reaction to light were destroyed.
It is interesting that the science of physics has been marred by the term: "Anti-Mensch" (anti-human). We will return to that later. It is the human being, with his gradual concentration of electrons, ever striving towards the future, who conceals within himself the greatest potential for the sun's energy on earth. The mirror image of this, a human lacking electrons, lacking photons, indicative of the past, perfectly illustrates, physically, the Anti-Mensch. There will be more details of that too. At the moment we are considering the wonderful relationship between man and the sun's energy.
The sun's energy and man as an antenna: almost everyone knows what an antenna is. The marvelous findings of Maxwell the physicist, concerning electro-magnetic waves in technology today are well-researched and of practical use. Famous examples are telegraphy, radio, television and various other applications of high-frequency technology in the manufacturing of electromagnets, the atom bomb and research into nuclear power as a source of energy,
These technical developments and their relation sciences are based on scientific findings which go back to the nineteenth century. An important milestone came in 1888 when Hertz published his: Über Strahlen elektrischer Kraft (Concerning Rays and Electrical Power). Using mathematical equations, Maxwell was able to prove that connected electrical and magnetic fields, when in movement, radiate electro-magnetic rays. These elementary laws also govern processes in nature.
An electrical charge in movement produces a magnetic field. Electrically conductive matter which is moved within a magnet's field will produce current. When connected electrical and magnetic fields are separated, the ensuing phenomenon gives rise to radiation of electro-magnetic waves. These fundamental, elementary laws can also be applied to biological processes.
When the sun shines on the leafy canopy of a tree and is absorbed through photosynthesis, this causes movement in the electrical charge of the electrons. A magnetic field is also brought about when the water in trees rises. When we, with our wealth of electrons and conductive living substance, move through the electro-magnetic field of a forest, then a charging with solar electrons takes place in us. When our blood circulates, there is a movement of the electrical charge in the magnetic fields (for example, on the surface lipids of red blood corpuscles), which then causes much induction and re-induction of energy.
With each heartbeat, a dose of the body's own electron-rich, highly unsaturated fats from the lymph system, together with lymph fluid, goes into the blood vessels and thereby into the heart. This constantly stimulates and strengthens anew the electro-motoric functioning of the heart, Even the movement of the bloodstream is connected with radiation of electromagnetic waves-in accordance with the fundamental law of nature which governs electro-magnetic waves. This transmitter within humans is always in action.
The tubular arrangement of our nerves with their various layers and nodes, their different potential, neurons and dendrites, all immediately convey a picture of how strong an electric current in a magnetic field has to be to lead to the radiation of electromagnetic waves here, too. When I begin thinking something positive about a person, this is also related to a radiation of electro-magnetic waves. Reception of this is also dependent upon the wavelength the receiver is on-and there are also amplifiers as well as transmitters of interference. All this brings in a large amount of data, which is commonly known under different names, such as telepathy, hypnosis, thought transference and many others.
Among the northern races, it is recognized that isolated native inhabitants use trees to help them to send their thoughts over distances, to inform a husband for example, who has gone to town, that he has to bring some salt. Bismarck wrote about how, during times of affliction, he would wrap his arms around a tree, lean his forehead on it and find relief and relaxation. In both cases, it is a matter of electro-magnetic waves in accordance with the mathematical equation of Maxwell.
But our theme is not really in this mental sphere, but has to do with measurable waves. Let us concentrate on the actual fats syndrome in its effects on the brain and nerve functions, the organs of the senses, the secretion of mucous, the functioning of the stomach and intestinal tract, liver, gall bladder and kidneys, the lymph and blood vessels, the skin, respiration, the immunity system, the fertilization processes and sexuality, semi-narcosis or vital power and also in connection with growth processes experiments have proved conclusively that all of these systems and processes of the human being are very much connected with electron-rich highly unsaturated fats as receivers, amplifiers and transmitters of electro-magnetic waves, and as overseer of the vital functions. It is here that the sun's energy is an active influence, radiated by the powerful photons as purest movement or controlling the electron structure of the living body, either bound to matter, or as power and energy from electro-magnetic fields and waves.
The dynamics of the vital functions and their basis in energy from the sun is, today, a fact which has to be reckoned with. The dynamic effect of sunlight on the body's vital functions has already been observed by an alert professor of optical medicine, Prof. Holwich. Blindness is often followed by a deterioration in many functions of the internal organs and in the secretions of the liver, gall bladder and pancreas. The heart's action is also affected, as is the peristaltic motion of the intestines. When sight is regained, an unmistakable activation of these organic functions is observable. You could say that this was due to physiological factors, for instance, to better and more movement out of doors, or to psychological motives. But it is worth mentioning, in connection with this, admittedly secondary observation, the following fact: A young doctor, a hunter, observed that in some years, prize-winning deer antlers were much larger than usual, but in others, even the very best of the prize-winning antlers were far below average in size. The physical development of young animals and clucks in the wild matched in degrees the size of the deer antlers, or lack of it. Investigation showed that the years in which the deer grew large antlers and in which there was good physical development of young animals in the wild, were clearly years with high rates of sunshine hours.
That the sun, as the element of life, also affects the dynamics of the vital functions is apparently self-evident. Everyone seems to agree. But then why are there so many people who say: I can`t tolerate the sun? The answer is on its way. Firstly, a few words on the topic of: The dynamics of the vital functions and their base in the sun's energy: When I have treated patients and they then lie in the sun, these sick people notice that they begin to feel very much better; rejuvenated. In contrast to this you often hear about people on sunny beaches having heart failure. It is not unusual for heart infarction to occur. Both conditions are observable. For some people nowadays, the sun's energy is an overly strenuous matter, while for others the dynamics of the sun's energy have an invigorating effect on all the vital functions. The stimulating effect of the sun on the secretions of the liver, gall bladder, pancreas, bladder and salivary glands is easily felt. These organs only dry out under the sun's rays when the substances which stimulate secretion in the body are lacking. With all these observations it is of decided importance, whether the surface-active electron-rich highly unsaturated fats are present as a resonance system for the sun's energy, or whether they are not. Doctors tell cancer patients that they should avoid the sun; that they can't tolerate it. That is correct. The moment, however, that these patients-cancer patients as well-have been following my oil-protein nutritional advice for two or three days, which means that they have been getting sufficient amounts of the essential fats, they can then tolerate the sun very well. Indeed they emphasize how fine they suddenly feel in the sun-how much their vitality and vigour is stirred and stimulated. And that brings us to the decisive point of this lecture.
The electrons in our food serve as the resonance system for the sun's energy. The electrons in our food are truly the element of life. Their electro-magnetic field attracts the photons in sunlight. These photons with their own vitality and continual movement, without which the physicist cannot imagine life existing, these photons, which are in resonance with the electrons in seed oils, are focused on the same wavelength as the sun's energy, serve the life element. This interplay of solar energy photons and the electrons in seed oils, which are focused to the very last quantum on solar energy photons, governs all the vital functions. Fats are the dominant factor for all the vital functions, according to Ivar Bang, a venerable physiologist from the year 1911.
Today we can add to that: Yes, fats which are in accord with solar energy photons, electron-rich fats in resonance with the solar energy wavelength, do indeed govern the entire vital function systems. In my work it is fascinating to see that my utilization of the relativity theory's related quantum physics illustrates how each and every individual vital function's dynamics are dominated by this exchange of electrons.
The electrons of highly unsaturated fats from seed oils, which lie on the same wavelength as sunlight, are capable of drawing solar energy and storing it, then, upon demand, of activating it as the purest energy of the dematerialized clouds of electrons, and making it available for the vital functions. All the vital functions are closely connected with membrane functions. The exchange of electrons, the distribution of energy in the whole organism is dependent on these membrane functions-in the nerve pathways, the brain, in every organ, the liver, gall bladder and pancreas in the stomach's mucous membrane and in the kidneys and intestinal tract: The controlling functions of these membranes with their electro-motoric power, is felt everywhere. This is also true for the respiratory functions, and in oxygen absorption and utilization. It also applies to cell division-to all normal growth processes. It is true for the catabolism of substance in the elimination processes taking place by way of the kidneys, intestinal tract and also for the growth of hair and nails, as well as for the development of young life in the womb. This brings us to a rather beautiful, and extremely important aspect of development.
According to the computable findings of those modern physicists, the quantum biologists, there is no entity in nature, in life, which has a higher concentration of solar electrons than man. It then follows that man has a true rapport with sunlight.
Physicists today are recognizing more and more that: "Let there be light" at the outset of Creation is becoming, physically, ever clearer to our minds, as the truth.
According to Einstein, the earth's gravity can be partially neutralized by means of electrons which conform to the sun's energy. The sun, and the sun-attuned electrons in the food we eat, bring us to a higher level of energy, and to a higher level of development as a human being.
"Anti-Mensch" and radiation damage are aspects which, through my research's utilization of modern quantum physics, have been shown to be actively promoted by means of radiation treatment for cancer patients. Physicists interpret from mathematical formulae that man, with his wealth of electrons, is directed forward in time. As we have heard, the photon speeds along in time; it has, so to speak, eternal life. Correctly considered in the abstract, proper mathematical formulae for important physical correlations can be so altered-still maintaining their mathematical correctness--that time is seen not to be directed forwards at all, but backwards. All one has to do is to give a negative sign to the time quotient in this mathematical formula and that is, of course, possible with standard mathematical rules. There is then for many physical ‘particles' a corresponding ‘anti-particle'. This was sought and found in the world of elementary particles, in the elementary particle's 'zoo'. as it is known to physicists. By means of these mathematical formulae, applied to Physics, and by reversing time, the mirror image of human beings is delineated-the "Anti-Mensch", while physically speaking, man represents the highest level of order, that is directed against entropy, the Anti-Mensch, according to physical formulae, lacks electrons. As I see it, the "Anti-Mensch" is, physically and mathematically directed into the past. The "Anti-Mensch" possesses few solar energy photons-the lowest level of order, physically speaking.
The process by which x-rays, gamma rays, atom bombs or cobalt rays are set in motion is also equally directed toward the development of the "Anti-Mensch".The electronic structure of the vital functions is destroyed by such rays. According to Feynman's "World Line Diagram" and modern physics' theory of relativity, time and space have been given a relationship in a formula. The "Anti-Mensch" is directed into the past. Mankind's internal structure with its interplay between solar energy photons and large number of electrons, with its concentration of photons in life's activities and in the dynamics of the vital functions, is directed into the future. This future-directed striving can develop powerful vigour. The "Anti-Mensch", lacking electrons and directed into the past---his thought processes, too--is paralysed in his vital functions, lacks power and strength because the element of life, the sun-attuned electrons, are missing.
It is then fascinating to investigate our food, with regard to this feature. Fats and oils treated to make them keep longer have had their electronic structure destroyed--otherwise oxygen would be absorbed-and this has a very detrimental effect on human beings who with their wealth of electrons, live towards the future. This negative aspect concerning the development of the "Anti-Mensch" is in accordance with Feynman's "World Line Diagram". I emphasize that it means the fats and oils which have had their electron structure destroyed serve, within time and space, to promote the development of the "Anti-Mensch".
Such fats, which interfere with the electron-exchange taking place in the living body because they act like insulating tar on the conductivity of electrons, also deaden the vital functions at the very commencement of their effectiveness-for example, in the organs and active growth centres as well as for the body in general. Tars were among the first substances to be recognized as carcinogens. What is cancer? Every single event in the "world of those elementary particles", which promotes the development of the "Anti-Mensch" also promotes cancer. A high amount of heavy particles from the world of elementary particles in our food, the food we eat which is lacking a wealth of electrons, promotes development of the "Anti-Mensch". It increases the occurrence of cancer. Solidified fats and oils for example, belong to this group. They lack electrons, acting as insulating tar regarding the transport and concentration of electrons in the living body.
Electron-rich food, electron-rich highly unsaturated oils, natural flavourings from herbs and spices, from fruits which are rich in aroma and natural dyes from the colour of the sunlight's photons-these all help the absorption, storage and utilization of the sun's energy.
How can you once more reach the peak of your development?
Freeing yourself from the influences and effects of radiation and from environmental factors which promote development into the "Anti-Mensch", seem important. These goals, set by the individual who chooses, or by the state and food industries with their organisation and planning, should be to see that the food we eat consists of electron-rich nutrition. An electron-rich food intake which supplies us with the resonance system for the sun's energy, must once more achieve priority. Such food, as the life element, promotes our sun-attuned energy. This in turn promotes our development, in space and time, into the future. The entire self can then grow and continue to develop further until, in accordance with the laws of nature which govern light and life, the highest level of our being is achieved.
Your fellow countryman, Prince Louis de Broglie, published Die Wellennatur der Materie (The Undulatory Nature of Matter). His work brought him the Nobel Prize. The wave aspect of living matter is all the clearer, the more one considers the nature of solar energy photons. Sunbeams, in accordance with the natural laws of light and life, affect and govern the wave and radiant energy capabilities of our living human selves, today, into the future and forever.
Light: Medicine of The Future
by Jacob Liberman, reviewed by Healing Cancer Naturally © 2004 Copyright Notice
An eye-opener as to the importance and curative/health-maintaining value of natural full-spectrum light. Skin and other cancers may be due to other factors than those strongly promoted by the mainstream (or to a combination of factors) such as long-term exposure to neon and other artificial lighting, the use of chemical-laden sun lotions, various deficiencies incl. long-term underhydration, Omega3 fatty acids etc. This and much more (including the early detection and healing of cancer) is discussed in this truly ground-breaking work on light and health.
Covering a wealth of topics, the author, an ophthalmologist, makes it abundantly clear that UV sunlight is a great healing and preventative factor, while artificial light is a major disease-inducing influence. Liberman calls light an essential nutrient and quotes many examples and studies to explain why this is so. He introduces the term malillumination to describe the state that most people in the Western world have been living in since the predominantly rural way of life was abandoned in favour of a life in the cities.
He discusses a wide range of therapeutic uses of light and color including emotional healing and catharsis triggered by colour and light (for instance, if you dislike a certain colour, this colour is quite likely the very colour that will (when therapeutically "applied") trigger and help you heal buried trauma). He talks about treating cancer, AIDS and other illnesses using light and color and a light therapy called Syntonics that was developed by one Dr. Harry Riley Spitler who himself built on the light/color frequency research of another researcher, Dinsha, which he further developed.
Other topics include: the true statistics of skin melanomas and the sun versus working inside all day; vast improvement of the eyesight of individuals using nothing but coloured filtered glasses and a light source; depression and light therapy; dyslexia and poor quality fluorescent light sources; dramatic improvement in behaviour and learning potential in children with learning disabilities after changing their environment to quality full spectrum lighting sources; the development of tumors in cancer-prone mice (exposed to pink fluorescent lighting in 42 weeks, under cool white light in 47 weeks and under full spectrum light in 51 weeks).
On Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)
In Light: Medicine of The Future, the most impressive part re cancer (in a nutshell) is the following:
There are light-activated chemicals called porphyrins ("a ubiquitous class of naturally occurring compounds with many important biological representatives") which accumulate in cancer cells. Porphyrins injected into the body make (under certain conditions) tumors fluoresce. T. J. Dougherty developed what he calls Photodynamic Therapy (PDT). PTD allows to both detect (highlight) cancerous cells as well as “explode" them subsequently by subjecting the injected photosensitive chemicals to irradiation with red laser light (640 nanometers), transported to the tumor locus via fibre-optic cables. The UV light activates these chemicals, which then proceed to selectively destroy the cancerous cells! PDT is painless and more successful than any conventional method in the treatment of localized tumors. As long as the light is able to penetrate to the tumor site, the therapy nearly never fails. Many cancer patients have been treated very successfully using this method. In 70 to 80 percent of the cases, one treatment suffices for positive results to be noted. See T. J. Dougherty: "Photosensitization of Malignant Tumors" in St. Economou: Adjuncts to Cancer Therapy, Philadelphia 1990. Someone developed PDT further into what he called Cytoluminescent Therapy (CLT).

Cells and UV:
“Heliotherapy" was very popular in Europe from 1900 to c. 1940. One Dr. Rollier, head of a sun therapy clinic, wrote a volume titled La Cure de Soleil [The Sun Cure]. He knew that the higher the UV dosis, the greater the success of the treatment. Many patients were healed from tuberculosis (and it was noticed that the sun did not effect a cure if the patients wore glasses impenetrable to the healing UV rays). Other successful treatments concerned colitis, anemia, eczema, acne, lupus erythematodes, sciatica, asthma, and other ailments. Sun bathing and UV therapy were known as the most effective treatment modality for many infectious diseases. When penicillin was discovered in 1938, big business and science rushed into the new area of antibiotics. Sun therapy fell into disrepute.
Why we need UV light:
UV light activates vitamin D synthesis.
UV light lowers blood pressure.
UV light increases heart "performance".
UV light improves ECG and blood parameters in persons suffering from arteriosclerosis.
UV light lowers cholesterol counts.
UV light helps in weight loss.
UV light is effective against psoriasis.
UV light is effective with numerous other ailments (Krudsen in his book Light Therapy lists 165 diseases).
UV light promotes the production of sex hormones.
UV light activates an important skin hormone (Solitrole).
UV light is a nutrient just as vitamins and minerals.
The media rehashes pseudo-scientific facts linking UV light to skin cancer. Scientists at the University of Sydney and The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine concurrently ascertained that malignant melanoma (skin cancer) is much more widespread among indoor workers and office employees than among persons with predominantly outdoor (sun-exposed) job or leisure activity.
Sensational tests on one-celled organisms:
Prof. Smith-Sonneborn irradiated one-celled organisms with bactericidal UV-C rays which damaged their DNA and shortened their life span (accelerated their aging process). She then proceeded to re-irradiate the cells, this time using UV-A. The cells repaired themselves and the aging process was halted. This alone was sensational news. Prof. Smith-Sonneborn wanted to know next what would happen if she resubjected the cells to UV-A. This second radiation treatment extended the cells’ lifespan by up to 50 % compared to the control group! These results showed without a doubt the ability of certain types of light to not only support cells in repairing their DNA, but also to support life-extending factors present within the DNA.
Liberman advises among other things: spend at least one hour per day outside, no matter what the weather. Don't wear sunglasses or tinted contact lenses and generally don't use sun lotion (Dr. Zane Kime is convinced that most sun lotions further the formation of cancerous cells under the impact of sunlight). Don't go into the sun between 10 am and 2 pm and never look directly at the sun.
What impressed me particularly is the author’s observation that natural sunlight is required as a catalyst to ensure complete digestion (my own experience seems to confirm this).
To round this review off, I am quoting from another pertinent website/other researchers:
“Research on various organisms and cell types consistently demonstrated that light alters cell metabolism, causing synthetic cell processes to dominate catabolic ones. In a recent paper, Karu described it this way: 'The primary changes induced by light are followed by a cascade of biochemical reactions in the cell that do not need further light activation.' (Here they are referring to laser light, “...lasers are used only because they are easier to control").
...light finds just the right places in the body to heal... starving or oxygen deprived tissue responds to the irradiation but not healthy tissue. Wounded, chronically inflamed, and ischaemic cells are characterized by their acidic, hypoxic and inhibited state. Light drives them toward oxidation, balanced pH, and vitality."
