Hydrazine sulphate (or sulfate, in US spelling) is a commonly used,
inexpensive industrial compound. Biologically, it inhibits a particular
liver and kidney enzyme (a monoamine
oxidase or MAO), thereby preventing cancer cells from obtaining
glucose. This has been shown to inhibit the cachexia (wasting),
which is the immediate cause of death in over 70% of cancer cases.
In a smaller number of cases, there is also some tumour regression.
This enables some patients to overcome their cancer or to live with
it. This has been demonstrated in several clinical trials.
Research began in 1968 with an article suggesting that cachexia
could be reduced by targeting a particular liver and kidney enzyme.
Dr Joseph Gold of the Syracuse Cancer Research Institute of New
York, who has pioneered the use of hydrazine sulphate as a cancer
treatment, began testing rodents with hydrazine sulphate, getting
rapid and positive results. The compound was then tested on human
beings, with mixed results.
Like most cancer treatments, mainstream or complementary, hydrazine
sulphate does not always work. There is also a long list of foods
with which it interacts badly, and it should only be taken under
medical supervision. Like other MAO inhibitors, it is incompatible
with barbiturates, tranquilizers, alcohol and other depressants
of the central nervous system. Foods high in the amino acid, tyramine,
such as mature cheeses and fermented foods should also be avoided.
Hydrazine sulphate has been the focus of considerable controversy
in the cancer industry. Mainstream organizations refer to trials
sponsored by the National Cancer Institute in the mid-1990s, which
showed no benefit from its use. Critics have observed that these
trials did not follow the correct procedures, since 94% of the patients
were given tranquilizers, and were permitted the use of alcohol

Chloride High pH Therapy
Caesium or cesium (US spelling) chloride is associated with the
high pH (alkalinizing) therapeutic approach to cancer treatment.
The theory that cancer cells are more susceptible than normal cells
to high pH originated with the observation that certain areas of
the world with a lower risk of cancer also had a higher soil concentration
of alkali metals (especially potassium, caesium, and rubidium).
Researchers back in the 1920s first suggested caesium might be a
useful anti-tumour agent. However, further studies in the 1930s
showed no evidence for this. The high pH therapy for cancer was
first advanced during the 1980s by Keith Brewer PhD, who published
numerous papers and articles concerning the treatment, together
with suggestions for further research. Dr Brewer was a physicist
who felt that many of the findings of physics were relevant to biology,
especially the physics of the cell membrane. He arrived at his therapeutic
approach after considerable experimentation on cell membranes. Animal
research studies confirming his theory, funded by Dr Brewer, were
undertaken by Dr Marilyn Tufte of the Department of Biology at the
University of Wisconsin at Platteville. A small number of uncontrolled
human trials conducted by various physicians, especially Dr H.A.
Nieper in Hannover, Germany and Dr H.E. Sartori in Washington, DC,
also showed significant positive results. As well as loss of pain
within 12 to 24 hours, the treatment also resulted in rapid shrinkage
of the tumour mass. However, Nieper and Sartori were also using
vitamin B17, which in itself is regarded as a significant cancer
treatment, so their results are not conclusive.
High pH therapy using caesium chloride therapy is usually given
to patients with advanced metastatic cancer, for whom standard medicine
can do no more. However, due to lack of sufficient research, there
is no agreed dosage or treatment protocol. Generally, up to 6 to
9 gms per day (or sometimes more) of caesium chloride is administered
in liquid form along with vitamins A and C, together with zinc and
selenium supplements, which enhance the cellular uptake of caesium.
Keith Brewer observes that there is some evidence that vitamin B17
is a more effective enhancer than vitamins A and C, but the net
effect on tumours may be due to the direct effect of the B17 itself.
Since caesium chloride pills or capsules can cause perforation of
the stomach wall, it is safer to take it in liquid form immediately
after a meal.
Mainstream critics of the therapy claim that scientific studies
provide little evidence that cancer cells are any more sensitive
than normal cells to an elevated pH. Whether or not this is true
requires further research. Nevertheless, this does not invalidate
the positive empirical results, however limited they may be.
In the doses mentioned, the most common side effects of caesium
chloride therapy are nausea and diarrhoea. Nieper claims that in
his experience nausea is reduced by taking caesium chloride in a
solution of sorbitol. Neurological symptoms such as numbness in
the extremities (probably due to potassium depletion) and irregular
heart beat have also been reported. Since caesium competes with
potassium, which is essential for normal cell function, it is essential
for patients to follow caesium chloride treatment under the care
of a qualified doctor, who can monitor potassium levels and other
key markers, such as calcium and uric acid.
Caesium chloride should be distinguished from the radioactive isotope,
caesium 137, which is used in some forms of radiation therapy.

Clinoptilolite Natural Cellular Defense
Zeolites are minerals, comprising a group of around 30 crystalline
aluminosilicates, found worldwide as major constituents of volcanic
sediments, formed as a result of the chemical interaction of volcanic
ash and sea water.
One of the four known fibrous forms of zeolite, clinoptilolite,
is currently the subject of an high-pressure multi-level marketing
program under the name of Natural Cellular Defense (NCD), also called
Liquid Zeolite. In fact, when searching the internet for information
on NCD, the majority of sites focus more on the money you can make
from selling NCD than on its supposed health benefits. On the basis
of a very small number of cell culture and animal studies, together
with largely unverifiable anecdotal evidence, the US manufacturer
(Waiora) claims that NCD supports a healthy immune system; helps
remove heavy metals, toxins and other substances from the body;
helps balance bodily pH levels; is 100% percent natural and non-toxic;
and is safe for long-term use. It should be noted that although
the original product patent was for a cancer drug, the company ultimately
decided to market it as a dietary supplement, no doubt because of
the more stringent legislation governing claims that can be made
for drugs as opposed to dietary supplements.
Clinoptilolite has been the subject of a large number of studies,
most of which relate to its use in industrial processes, especially
as regards its established ability to bind to toxic metals. In a
few laboratory studies on various cancer cell cultures and tumour-bearing
animals, zeolite clinoptilolite prolonged life and in some cases
reduced tumour size. In one study, the mechanism was thought to
be through lipid peroxidation'. Scientific studies of mice
and dogs showed improvement in their overall health, life extension,
and reduction in tumour sizes. Local application to dogs' skin cancers
also exhibited a reduction in both tumour formation and growth.
Other animal studies have revealed no short term toxic effects from
Some of the websites mention a small clinical trial by LifeLink
Pharmaceuticals, in which a significant percentage of terminal cancer
patients went into remission after taking NCD. The report of this
trial is as yet unpublished, and may remain so. Apparently, although
patients who had started taking NCD were stage 3 and 4 cancer patients
for whom standard medicine could do little more, there was no control
regarding other therapeutic techniques or substances that the patients
were using. Positive results could not therefore be attributed to
NCD alone or, indeed, at all.
Clinoptilolite by itself is an insoluble rock crystal. The manufacturer
therefore uses a micronizing process by which the particles are
made so small (a few micrometres) that they can be absorbed into
the body by the intestines.
It is important to check the source and contents of any zeolite
sold as a dietary supplement. One such product, Vulkansandkuren
(now unavailable, at least on the internet), promoted for body detoxification,
actually contained arsenic, lead, aluminium and dioxins, all of
which are themselves toxic. Wiaora claim that all traces of heavy
metals are removed during their patented micronizing process.
Some zeolites, such as asbestos, are well known for their carcinogenicity
when inhaled. In a few parts of the world, the fibrous zeolite,
erionite, is present in the environment. In remote Anatolian villages
(in Turkey), a high incidence of lung cancer and mesothelioma (cancer
of the lining of the lung, abdominal cavity and heart, more commonly
associated with asbestos exposure) has been attributed to the presence
of erionite in the soil, road dust, and local building materials.
These places also have a higher
than average incidence of other cancers. Critics have pointed
to this potential long-term problem with the use of NCD. The manufacturer
counters this by pointing to a 1993 study on rats which concluded
that zeolite clinoptilolite has no carcinogenic activity. Moreover,
zeolite clinoptilolite has been given GRAS (generally regarded as
safe) status by the US Federal Drug Administration (FDA).
As is common with products where the data is both limited, preliminary,
and open to interpretation, Natural Cellular Defense is the subject
of considerable often emotive internet discussion.
Selling NCD through multi-level marketing also creates an army of
highly motivated sales people, many of whom may have little real
understanding of the product, and whose enthusiasm and financial
motivation can rapidly distort the available data.
