IS NON-TOXIC CANCER TREATMENT BEING SUPPRESSED?
Hundreds of people who wrote to the court in Jimmy Keller's defense in 1991 thought so. Many wrote that he had kept their cancers in remission when nothing else would. This is the true story of a man who cured himself of a near-fatal cancer after conventional medicine had mutilated and then abandoned him. He spent the next thirty years helping others with the disease. In the struggle to keep his clinic open, he faced raids and robberies, a near-fatal beating, a kidnapping, and a prison sentence many called justice gone wrong. The details of his therapies, and the history and vicissitudes of the non-traditional health care movement that his life personifies, are woven throughout his story. While politicians debate how to impose Modern Medicine on us all, this story needs to be retold.
The need for alternative viewpoints and a broader spectrum of

At a stage in the evolution of mankind in which we need to pool all
efforts towards a better understanding of the healing process, Ellen

know, and every cancer patient should take to heart. The cancer
statistics speak for themselves -- "the war on cancer" is a
What an incredible irony. Millions of Americans have died from
cancer in the last 20 years, yet here we have a man who can put
about 90% of people (who have not been treated with
chemotherapy/radiation) into lengthy remission using natural
non-toxic therapies, but he is attacked and imprisoned for saving
Keller's story highlights the sharp divide between orthodox
and alternative/holistic approaches. Five stars.
