Immunity and Its Role in Conventional Cancer Therapy

Part of the Advances in Immunity and Cancer Therapy book series (IMMUNITY, volume 1)


Drugs can only repress symptoms. They cannot erradicate the disease. The true remedy for all diseases is nature’s remedy…. Nature has provided, in the white corpuscles as you call them—in the phagocytes as we call them—a natural means of devouring and destroying all disease germs. There is at bottom only one genuinely scientific treatment for all diseases, and that is to stimulate the phagocytes. Stimulate the phagocytes… they devour the disease, and the patient recovers. Unless, of course, he’s too far gone.
