And I am going to keep writing him until I get an answer.
Dear Mr. Biden,
I am writing to you about your cancer project. In early 2005, some alarming scientific findings linking the consumption of animal protein with cancer were published in a best-selling book called The China Study. Bill Clinton credits that book as a major reason for his switch to a plant-based diet in 2010.
Dr. T. Colin Campbell (author) reported in that book that he was able to turn cancer “on” and “off” in laboratory animals at Cornell simply by adjusting the amount of casein (milk protein) in their diet. Knowing that his work would create big problems with the meat and dairy industries (who heavily fund Cornell research), the administration there has done their best to marginalize Campbell’s work ever since.
Nine years later, a general practitioner in Ireland (John Kelly, MD) published human results (that strongly reinforced the validity of Dr. Campbell’s findings) in his 2014 book entitled, Stop Feeding Your Cancer. As he said in that book, “The failure of The China Study to translate research momentum into efficient, globally coordinated empirical testing was to my mind a tragedy.”
Mr. Biden, your question to people like Dr. Francis Collins, who heads up the National Institutes of Health, should be something like this.
“In the eleven years since “The China Study” was published in 2005, why hasn’t the NIH (or any other cancer research organization) conducted a single human study aimed at determining if Dr. Campbell’s lab findings were transferable to human cancer patients?”
We now know from Dr. Kelly’s informal findings that they most probably are transferable. How many lives could have been saved if our “cancer industry” had urgently begun those formal studies eleven years ago?
Now that I think about it, you should ask that same question to the CEO of the American Cancer Society and other cancer research organizations around the world about why they haven’t insisted that Campbell’s alarming scientific findings be tested in humans.
A few facts about ACS. According to Charity Navigator, three executives at the EVP level in the American Cancer Society each earned well over one million dollars in 2013. Revenue that year was $933 million; you’d think they could devote $50 million or so to either confirm or disprove Campbell’s findings.
Now what? Dr. T. Colin Campbell, Dr. John Kelly and I request a meeting with you in Washington at your earliest convenience to discuss this crucial topic. I wrote a more-lengthy letter to you on January 17. It can be found at the top of my personal website at hpjmh.com. There has been no response to that letter so far.
Sincerely, J. Morris (Jim) Hicks (917-399-9700)
