What You Need to Know about Cancer’s History, Treatment, and Prevention
According to the World Health Organization (WHO) “Cancer is a leading cause of death and disability globally, impacting more than 14 million people each year.” Consequently, prevention is the best option available for this noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) era.
The Truth about Cancer is the attempt of Ty Bollinger to cope with losing several relatives, including his parents to cancer; he realized “the idea that our modern medical system is actually trying to cure disease and keep people healthy is nothing but smoke and mirrors.”
Part I of The Truth about Cancer explains the history of medicine and the politics of cancer. Ty Bollinger presents “the true and lost history of medicine, and the ways in which this former art form was hijacked by special interests and turned into a profit-generating machine.”
Part II of The Truth about Cancer deals with cancer diagnosis, detection, causes, and prevention.
What’s cancer? “Cancer, in essence, can be summed up as a failure of the immune system to eradicate abnormal cells before they take root and become full-blown cancer.” Moreover, Dr. Leonard Coldwell explains “Cancer is the cure. People don’t understand that. Cancer is there to save your life. When your body is so toxic that you are going to die of the poison, the body builds a bag and stuff all the poison in there and locks it up-the tumor.”
The approach to prevent and/or reverse disease deals with different aspects as: “minimizing exposure to toxins; eating a clean diet*; exercising (and sweating!) regularly; minimizing stress; and maintaining healthy relationships.”
Bollinger gathered treatments that differ from the standard procedure of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery so anyone can make a choice after knowing all the different protocols available, and create a personalized treatment with their physicians according to their needs. For example:
Thermograms are “a safe, side effect-free alternative to mammograms” using infrared heat to “detect physiological abnormalities indicative of a possible breast cancer diagnosis.”
Human Chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) urine immunoassay, “Thousands of cancer survivors have used this test over the years to keep track of their treatments(s) success and check the status of their remission.”
ONCOblog test, “is capable of revealing a cancer’s organ(s) of origin with about 96 percent of accuracy.”
Part III of The Truth about Cancer covers treatment protocols, such as:
- Herbal remedies, Detoxification, and Diet.
- Sound, light, electricity, Frequency and Heat.
- Bio-oxidative therapies.
- Treating Cancer with Viruses and Essential Oils.
- Enzyme and metabolic/mitochondrial therapy.
Ty Bollinger message is to “adopt a holistic, anticancer lifestyle that supports the health of the three primary components that make up a human being: mind, body, and spirit.” However, the book focuses mainly on body treatments.
The documentary The Truth about Cancer: A Global Quest covers more information, and the visuals make it more powerful than the book, but still the book is useful as a quick reference guide.

The Truth about Cancer: What You Need to Know about Cancer’s History, Treatment, and Prevention
Published by Hay House, Inc. (October 25, 2016)
Cancer touches more lives than you may think. According to the World Health Organization, one out of three women alive today, and one out of two men, will face a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime.
To Ty Bollinger, this isn’t just a statistic. It’s personal. After losing seven members of his family to cancer over the course of a decade, Ty set out on a global quest to learn as much as he possibly could about cancer treatments and the medical industry that surrounds the disease. He has written this book to share what he’s uncovered—some of which may shock you—and to give you new resources for coping with cancer in your life or the life of someone you love.
As Ty explains, there are many methods we can access to treat and prevent cancer that go well beyond chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery; we just don’t know about them. The Truth about Cancer delves into the history of medicine—all the way back to Hippocrates’s credo of “do no harm”—as well as cutting-edge research showing the efficacy of dozens of unconventional cancer treatments that are helping patients around the globe. You’ll read about the politics of cancer; facts and myths about its causes (a family history is only part of the picture); and the range of tools available to diagnose and treat it.
If you’re facing a cancer diagnosis right now, this book may help you and your health-care provider make choices about your next steps. If you’re already undergoing conventional treatment, it may help you support your health during the course of chemo or radiation. If you’re a health-care provider and want to learn all you can to help your patients, it will expand your horizons and inspire you with true stories of successful healing. And if you just want to see cancer in a new light, it will open your eyes.
