To considering ALL potential cures for cancer
Not just the proposed cures that come out of the cancer industry
I saw in the news today (ABC and Baltimore Sun) that your “moonshot cancer” project has already received $125 million from a handful of donors, including Michael Bloomberg, and that you’re confident that:
Congress will approve the $1 billion the president requested for cancer research and help pave the way toward cures for all types of cancer — a goal scientists say could be reached by using patients’ immune systems to destroy cancer cells.
Sir, I can tell from your tone in this video that you are sincere in your effort to find the cure for cancer but, so far, I have seen nothing in the news that suggests that you have explored ANY possible cure that has not originated from inside the “cancer industry” — an industry that has zero financial incentive whatsoever to pursue any possible cure that doesn’t involve extensive use of enormously expensive drugs and/or procedures.
After all, without those enormously expensive drugs and procedures, there would be no cancer industry.
You mentioned scientists in the news articles but there is one scientist who you did not mention. That courageous scientist is T. Colin Campbell, PhD, of Cornell University. Surely you have heard of him, as I am confident many others have written to you about him and his “game changing” cancer research. All of those people deserve to be heard, just as…
The world deserves to learn the truth about cancer.
Mr. Biden, the taxpayers of the USA, indeed all citizens of the planet, deserve to hear what Dr. Campbell discovered about cancer in the laboratory at Cornell as early as 1982. I have written about that discovery in my previous four letters to you since early January.
Dr. Campbell’s game-changing discovery. He discovered that cancer can be consistently turned “on” and “off” in laboratory subjects simply by adjusting the level of animal protein in their diets. It turned out that animal protein is the favorite food of cancer cells.
Sadly, the “cancer industry” has never seen fit to formally test those findings in humans. But there have been thousands of anecdotal cases in the past thirty years that suggest that Dr. Campbell’s findings are almost certainly applicable to humans.
And Dr. Campbell told the world about those findings in his 2005 best-seller, The China Study–a book that was praised by President Clinton in 2010 for helping him learn all about the plant-based solution to curing his heart disease. Conveniently, the same diet that could likely be the cure for cancer–has also been proven to reverse heart disease, type 2 diabetes and a host of other chronic diseases.
My letters to your office. I sent my first formal letter to your office on January 17 and have followed up with three additional letters, the last one was mounted on an 18 by 24 inch foam poster board shown here.
Response from your office. After four letters over a period of two months, I received one response from your office. Since it didn’t mention anything that I had said in any of my letters to you, it was obviously a form letter that was probably sent to the thousands of people who have reached out to you about this extremely important project.
Sir, form letters are not going to get the job done. All I am asking is that you begin “asking the right question” as your team goes about its investigation. Here is that question:
“In the eleven years since The China Study was published in 2005, why hasn’t the NIH (or any other cancer research organization in the world) conducted a single formal human study aimed at determining if Dr. Campbell’s lab findings were transferable to human cancer patients?”
Conclusion. As I have mentioned in all of my letters to you, we are pretty darn sure that the simple technique used to arrest cancer growth in the lab animals–can also be used with great success in humans. So why not spend a tiny fraction of the billion dollars from us taxpayers to find out for certain?
If not now, when?
If not you and President Obama, then who?
Just think of the millions of lives, the billions of years of suffering and the trillions of dollars spent on chronic disease–also consider the host of environmental improvements that would be the natural result of billions of humans moving away from eating so many animals. We’re truly talking about a win-win for all concerned–except for the “cancer industry” itself.

PS: It is my sincere hope and expectation that Dr. T. Colin Campbell will someday be awarded the Nobel Prize for his breakthrough scientific work leading to the end of cancer.
Here is a list of the earlier letters I have sent to your office so far this year. Notice that the last one on this list was addressed to Mr. Bob Woodward of The Washington Post. I thought that maybe he would be able to get your attention regarding this most crucial topic.
- Letter to VP Joe Biden. Your war on cancer can be won…(1-17-16)
- My second letter to VP Joe Biden in seven days…(1-23-16)
- My 3rd (and best) letter to VP Joe Biden in ten days (1-26-16)
- Jumbo “poster-size” Cancer Letter to VP Joe Biden (2-1-16) Please note that the “form letter” response from your office is included herein.
- Cancer Letter to Bob Woodward of The Washington Post (2-3-16)
