This page attempts
to reconcile two opposite views of sunlight - sunlight causes cancer
vs. sunlight prevents cancer. Exposure of the skin to sunlight is
necessary for good health and for thousands of years "solariums"
have been an integral part of health spas. However, too much of a
good thing can become a bad thing. Ionizing radiation creates free
radicals that damage cells and are associated with cancer. Diet
(antioxidants) and lifestyle factors can remove free radicals
and accelerate the repair of any damage they have caused. The
ultraviolet rays that cause sunburn also produce vitamin D that is
necessary for calcium absorption and cancer prevention. Dr. Johanna
Budwig suggests that through dietary changes everyone, including
cancer patients, can increase their tolerance for sunlight thereby
becoming able to enjoy more of the health benefits that sunlight can

The impact of
sunlight on the skin will become more controversial as the years go
by. This is partly due to continued pollution-caused destruction of
the earth's ozone layer that blocks UV radiation. However, there is
another phenomenon you will be interested to learn about. The
earth's magnetic field has been weakening for the past 300+ years.
Some scientists believe this may be the prelude to a flipping of the
earth's magnetic poles. This phenomenon happens on average about
every 250,000 years. The earth's magnetic field protects all life on
earth from solar and cosmic radiation. It has been estimated that
the increased radiation reaching the earth's surface during the
centuries required to complete the pole flip will cause an
additional 100,000 cases of cancer annually (assuming that people

"That the sun, as the
element of life, also affects the dynamics of the vital functions is
apparently self-evident. Everyone seems to agree. But then why are
there so many people who say: I can't tolerate the sun? The answer
is on its way. Firstly, a few words on the topic of: The dynamics of
the vital functions and their base in the sun's energy: When I have
treated patients and they then lie in the sun, these sick people
notice that they begin to feel very much better; rejuvenated. In
contrast to this you often hear about people on sunny beaches having
heart failure. It is not unusual for heart infarction to occur. Both
conditions are observable. For some people nowadays, the sun's
energy is an overly strenuous matter, while for others the dynamics
of the sun's energy have an invigorating effect on all the vital
functions. The stimulating effect of the sun on the secretions of
the liver, gall bladder, pancreas, bladder and salivary glands is
easily felt. These organs only dry out under the sun's rays when the
substances which stimulate secretion in the body are lacking. With
all these observations it is of decided importance, whether the
surface-active electron-rich highly unsaturated fats are present as
a resonance system for the sun's energy, or whether they are not.
Doctors tell cancer patients that they should avoid the sun; that
they can't tolerate it. That is correct. The moment, however,
that these patients cancer patients as well have been following
my oil-protein nutritional advice for two or three days, which means
that they have been getting sufficient amounts of the essential
fats, they can then tolerate the sun very well. Indeed they
emphasize how fine they suddenly feel in the sun how much their
vitality and vigor is stirred and stimulated." - Budwig, Dr.

David Williams Alternatives newsletter, March 2002:
from Monash University, in Victoria, Australia, has shown
that what you eat can directly influence the health of your
skin. Skin damage in individuals living in Melbourne,
Australia was compared to that of individuals living in
rural Greece and in Sweden. It was discovered that the type
of foods they consumed influenced the amount of wrinkling
and damage to sun-exposed skin in older individuals from
different ethnic backgrounds.
Far less skin
damage and wrinkling was found in those individuals who had
a higher intake of the following foods: vegetables, olive
oil, fish, legumes, eggs, yoghurt, nuts, olives, cherries,
melons, dried fruits/prunes, apples/pears, multigrain bread,
jam, tea, and water.

From Dr. David
Williams Alternatives newsletter, April 2002:
exposure is a necessary requirement for vitamin D production
in the body, and is also necessary for proper mood health.
However, with the fear of skin cancer and wrinkling, tanning
or even getting sun exposure has become taboo. The result is
that depression is becoming more and more commonplace.
is that, even under normal circumstances, it would be
difficult for many people to get enough sun exposure to
avoid depression in most of the Northern and Northeastern
U.S. cities. Only during a few summer months are there
enough UV-B rays reaching those areas to allow for proper
vitamin D production. (The three main forms of UV, or
ultraviolet, radiation from the sun are UV-A, UV-B, and
UV-C. UV-B rays are the ones we need to produce vitamin D
naturally, but they are also the ones that can produce
sunburn and tanning.)
UV-B rays are adequate, most people now either slather on
the sunscreen or avoid the sun altogether. Any sunscreen
with a protective factor of 8 or more will block almost all
of the UV-B rays from reaching the skin.
thing about all of this is that the incidence of skin cancer
has more to do with consuming wrong fats (too many omega-6
fatty acids and not enough omega-3s - see Vol.8, No. 8) than
it does with exposure to the sun. Until the general public
understands this fact, skin cancer problems will continue to
increase - which will in turn cause even more fear of
sunlight exposure and more depression. This whole situation
has gotten way out of control. Because of the fats we're now
eating and our fear of sunlight, it's becoming necessary to
supplement our diets with vitamin D. But in the natural
scheme of things, our bodies can manufacture enough vitamin
D when given regular exposure to sunlight.

A uniform tan is
achieved by exposing the body uniformly to the sun.
Too much exposure to
the sun occasions an excessive thickening of the corneum and, at
the same time, makes the skin dry and causes it to scale. A
harsh, dry, coarse skin is the result. Certainly this is not

long enough that this takes place. The intelligent person will

Many nutrients are needed
for the healing of tissues. Vitamin F promotes increased
oxygen to all parts of the body, and according to Dr.
Johanna Budwig, is essential for the body to tolerate
sunlight, saying it provides "a resonance system for the
sun's energy". Vitamin C significantly reduces radiation
damage to skin. Glyconutrients are the active
ingredients in aloe vera, which has been found to be
very helpful to repair sun damaged skin.
Release of stress resulting
in calmness of mind, body and emotions. Having a
technique to calm the mind and emotions is very useful
in stressful medical situations. Many problems are very
easy to prevent compared to fix, and the increased
clarity of mind that comes with regular meditation can
help prevent the "danger that has not yet come".
Our conclusion is
that people following the 8 step program to prevent cancer as part
of their healthy lifestyle should have significantly greater
tolerance for sunlight, and may heal from sunburn more quickly.
Moderate exposure to the sun will help increase the alkalinity of
the body and improve one's resistance to cancer.

possible that a man with metastatic melanoma, one of
the worst cancers you can develop, can be brought virtually
to remission without any apparent toxicity? Believe it or
not, this is just one of several cases of "terminal" cancer
that was dramatically reversed and presented at the Insulin
Potentiation Therapy (IPT) training workshop sponsored by
the International Oxidative Medicine Association in April.
Ross Hauser presented other equally dramatic cases of
several other cancers. IPT is a treatment utilizing
exceptionally small amounts of chemotherapy for cancer. The
toxic effects of the drugs are magnified many fold on the
cancer cells by the hormone insulin, while the low dosage
spares normal cells, The horrific side effects simply do not
occur. Most IPT physicians are experiencing satisfying
results. Simply extending life comfortably and with little,
if any, toxicity beats the best of what conventional
treatment has to offer.

need glucose to burn for energy. They are almost totally
dependent upon glucose as their energy source, while other
cells can also burn fats. With few exceptions, all cells
require insulin to allow glucose to enter. Since cancer
cells are totally dependent on glucose as their only energy
source, they have many more insulin receptors on their
membranes (this is how the cancer cell consumes the
glucose). In fact, they may have anywhere from six to 15
times the number of insulin receptors as normal cells,
giving them a real competitive advantage in swallowing up

the path for glucose to enter, it also makes the cell
membrane more permeable to other substances, including
chemotherapy drugs. Thus, because insulin receptors are
so concentrated on cancer cells, increasing the insulin in
the cancer patient's body opens the cancer up. When this
happens, the cancer can be selectively targeted by the
cancer drugs without affecting the normal cells. More drugs
will enter the cancer cells in the presence of insulin. In
fact, a study in the early 1980's showed that the
chemotherapy drug methotrexate had its ability to kill
breast cancer cells magnified 10,000 times when the
cells were prepared with insulin!

demonstrated the deleterious effects of various colors of
light on health. His work with microscopic time-lapse
photography revealed that heart cells of chicks, when
subjected to red light, weakened and ultimately ruptured.
"This again raises the question," he said, "of whether there
may be any connection between coronary disorders and the
high red content within the spectrum of ordinary
incandescent light bulbs." The implications here of the
possible effect of ordinary incandescent light on the
cardiovascular system are enormous, but no one, as far as we
know, has followed up Ott's work in this field...Skin cancer

leukemia...Dr. Ott relates his experience with six women who
were able to conceive after he advised them to throw away
their tinted glasses. Estrogen, one of the female hormones
essential for conception, has a sharp peak in absorption of
ultraviolet light at 290 nanometers, This frequency of light
is usually filtered out by sunglasses...The same principle
may well hold true for the male hormone..." - quoted from

Part of the answer is avoidance of estrogen and more sun

The ultraviolet B
light frequency both burns skin and creates vitamin D. Therefore, we
all need ultraviolet light for good health and we all need to be
careful not to damage our skin through overexposure. Healthy
exposure is at least 30 minutes daily.
Damage to the earth's
ozone layer is allowing more ultraviolet light to reach the earth's
surface. This has given rise to recommendations to use sunblock on
the skin. However, sunblocks may contain toxic chemicals. To the
extent sunblocks are effective, they prevent the skin from being
exposed to ultraviolet light and forming vitamin D. Therefore,
Alkalize For Health does not recommend using sunblock. Rather, we
suggest staying out of the sun during the hottest hours of the day,
and covering up with a hat, umbrella, etc. if you must be in the hot
sun. Tan is a natural sunblock, and the darker your skin color the
more sun you need on your skin each day in order for the body to
produce sufficient vitamin D.
You can increase your
body's tolerance to sunlight by eating certain foods. Foods that
help will contain the omega 3 and 6 essential oils, antioxidants,
selenium, alkaline minerals, and many of the vitamins.
People who spend most
of their time indoors would benefit from the use of full spectrum
lighting so that the skin produces more vitamin D.
The skin can produce
up to 10,000 - 20,000 units of vitamin D daily and produces only
what the body requires. There is no possibility of an overdose. If
you are not getting enough sunlight, particularly in winter, then it
is good to expose the skin to UVB light from a
Vitamin D lamp for a few minutes daily and supplement your diet
with fish oils containing vitamin D. A safe
and useful dose for adults recommend by the Vitamin D Council ranges from
5,000 to 10,000
International Units of vitamin D per day. The 5,000 IU per day
recommendation is for a healthy adult, and 10,000 IU per day is for
adults with health problems.

Cancer pain is
generally controlled with morphine. However, morphine can be
addictive, so it is nice to have some options. The twelve ways we
discuss to deal with cancer pain include MSM/DMSO, vitamin C, vitamin B17,
alkaline minerals (salts of cesium, rubidium, and potassium),
hyperthermia, enzymes, and more. The discussion of
pain will do much to enrich your understanding of cancer and
highlight the value of our 8 step program.
