Initial Follow-up to “Survey: Cancer With MS”

When I read the following quote that was posted as a response to the MS/CANCER survey, I felt the same way (when I posted the question).

“Cancer links [to MS]….seem like clutching at straws.”

But, I had read many published research articles that hinted at the possibility of MS and cancer being associated.  So, I decided to keep clutching at straws in hopes of catching one.

There were a total of 183 respondents.  Of these, the results are as follows:

A. 40 respondents had MS only; and there were no cancers in any family member.

B. 116 had MS only; but, there were cancers in family members.

C. 19 had MS and cancer along with their MS without cancer being in any cancer member.

D. 8 had MS and cancer along with their Ms as well as cancer in family members.

Further analysis is being carried out.  When completed, we’ll do a webinar to share the findings and let you know what you can do about it.

  1. Very interesting data. With the correlation of MS with cancer there is in my opinion more reason to use Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) to treat MS as HBOT has anti cancer activity and is a useful adjunct in treating cancer. Let me know if you would like more data on HBOT in cancer. wsm md

  2. My sister died of cancer, which began in her breast. My aunt and first cousin have breast cancer. An uncle has colon cancer. Another first cousin has had an eye replaced due to cancer of the eye. Thank you for all the interesting research. (Meanwhile my mother and neice have SLE and my brother has Ankylosing Spondylitis.)

  3. The medication angle is a most pertinent one as the betaferons etc the immune response. I have often thought that what is given with one hand can be taken with the other although I am ever thankful for the knowledge of the present.

  4. The lab found blood in my stool so now I have to go and have the scope Job ( sorry I don’t know what you call it) Any way I’m praying it is not cancer. I have not received my appointment yet. So there is a chance that I have cancer. No one on my mother’s side has cancer. Can’t tell you about my father.
    Many thanks for all your work.

  5. i have been blessed not to have cancer and MS together just good old MS cancer does concern me I ave been told if u have one auto immune disease then chances are you have more auto immune diseases I have some arthritis Ms is enough for me . Just take it one day at a time.

  6. Hmm. I missed the survey but have contact with research firm that work in naturall food stuffs and follow JAMA closely. JAMA has published info to the effect that an alkaline ph (not extreme) uis a preventive for cancer. Cancer cells cannot live in an alkaline body. I watch my ph carefully and my MS symptoms are slowly subsiding. No cancer either.

  7. I had breast cancer when I was 32, just after the birth of our daughter. No-one in my family has had cancer. Then I was diagnosed with MS when I was 45, but they think I must have had it for at least another 10 years earlier in a milder form. When I started Beta Interferon I never realised it could cause problems. Then after nearly 3 years of beta interferon the breast cancer came back with a vengeance on the mastectomy scar. They don’t know whether the beta interferon caused my immune system to be lowered to such an extent that the cancer came back. I stopped the beta interferon and the company I ordered it from told me to not go back on it until I was free from cancer for at least 5 years. They can’t definitively say it was the beta interferon was the cause of the cancer coming back. Hope this helps people.

  17. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything. But just imagine if you added some great graphics or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this site could undeniably be one of the most beneficial in its niche. Wonderful blog!
