Cancer's Worst Enemy
Written By: Attorney Jonathan Emord | Posted: Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010
The worst enemy cancer has is not some chemotherapy admixture, it is not surgery, and it is not radiation treatment. The worst enemy cancer has comes in the form of a brilliant, soft spoken internist, oncologist and immunologist in Lawrenceville, New Jersey. He is Dr. Charles B. Simone of the Simone Protective Cancer Center, author of Cancer and Nutrition: A Ten Point Plan to Reduce Your Chances of Getting Cancer (1982) and many other remarkable books on preventing and treating cancer.
This gentle, unassuming man, approachable by everyone and possessed of an affable and compassionate manner, has prolonged the life of many cancer patients-long past the time their attending physicians thought possible. As he told me many years ago, when there is no known cure, you do not do everything imaginable to kill the cancer and thereby kill the patient, you do everything imaginable to manage the cancer and extend the life of the patient. In short, while many oncologists view incurable cancers as diseases to be conquered in which either the patient or the cancer will win (with the cancer almost always winning), Dr. Simone views incurable cancers as diseases to be managed for a lifetime (with the patient living to the maximum extent possible). Dr. Simone wants his patients to live with cancer, not die from it or from cancer treatment. He aims to give his patients longevity and quality of life.
