Is Cancer Really a Fungus: The Candida and Cancer Conspiracy

For years, the term cancer has been one that causes immense struggle and fear within the minds of people. Seen by many as the “plague of our era” the problem with cancer is that most of the forms of it we know of are incurable at present. At best, we can fight against it using the old fighting fire with fire adage (otherwise known as radiotherapy) but a lot of forms of cancer are, at present, unbeatable.

This has led to many people to wonder how, with billions of investment into cancer research, a solution cannot be found. We’re told that the cancer itself is just so complex and so unique that it simply cannot be fought back against properly. However, now links exist to show that cancer might not be quite so terrifying after all!

From the links to cancer feeding on sugar to it being curable by using bicarbonate soda or even marijuana oil extract, the alternative solutions to cancer are now being spotted and lauded by people all across the world.

The idea that it’s no longer the super-illness we thought it was – instead caused by a massive upturn in the way we all live, eat and drink for example – is something that can be dealt with in an easier fashion than seeing cancer as the signal that your life is coming to a premature end. However, other studies now suggest that there is more than a link between what cancer is, and what a certain fungal infection known as candida is. Sound crazy to you? Then let’s take a further look at the links between candida and cancer.

What is Candida?

The term candida is used to describe a style of yeast, found in common fungal infections all across the world. Most people can disregard that idea that cancer and candida are linked by simply looking at the fact that most forms of candida are completely harmless. However, the main word here is most – many forms of candida can spread to cause infection and illness in someone. Indeed, it’s even shown to have caused the spoiling of wine in the past – in short, we know that candida in the wrong hands can be quite dangerous.

Infections of the body allegedly occur in 90,000 people per year in the United States alone, so why are more people not looking at candida more seriously? The answer is most likely because we think we already know huge amounts of information about the condition. Whilst we believe that an overreliance on antibiotics can bring this problem on, candida is something that is now getting more information released about it as the links between cancer and candida become a little clearer.

Appearing as a large white/cream colony with a yeast-like smell to it, candida tends to be quite hard to work out because it comes in so many different ways. Candida has a non-standard genetic code and thus understanding it can be a bit of a challenge for those who need to do so. The main difference in the genetic code between candida species is the main challenge that we now have to work on – which candida species are harmful?

Since it’s allegedly universal – albeit in very low numbers – on our actual skin, most people look to candida as something not to worry about. However, the growing links that represent candida and cancer as one of the same means that more people are viewing it with skepticism.

Links to Cancer

Cancer is one of the most debilitating illnesses on the planet, and the reason that it’s such a huge challenge for us to deal with is because the cause of cancer is still so unknown. Basically, it’s now whittled down to the fact that medical professionals now look to anything we do that could be bad for us as the cause. From inhaling toxins to eating processed food, just about everything about there today can have some kind of tenuous link to cancer. For this reason, many people remain unconvinced as to the impact it can have with relation to candida – is it just yet another umbrella term thrown in with the cancer debate?

Given that most of our diets are now low in fiber and high in carbs, many of our bodies are producing an excess in yeast. If you look at cancer growth rates, they tend to come from the first world where we eat these unhealthy diets and lead such poor lifestyles. If you want to try and get your head around this aspect of the process, you need to head back to the early 1900s.

A famous Danish Nobelaurate, Dr. Johannes Fibiger, found a significant link between cancer and fungal growth. He done this by feeding cockroaches who carries a parasitic larvae inside them to rats. The rats then proceeded to showcase the symptoms related to creating cancer swellings.

This showcases that for more than a century we’ve known about the potential links in yeast overgrowth and cancer, so why has nothing ever been done to investigate this further?

With our modern diets – where the body has plenty of white sugar in there and lots of refined wheat and high-glycemic foods in general – it’s no surprise that the link exists. Cancer soars through the roof whilst the very things that give yeast energy and life are being consumed on a regular basis. From this perspective, it soon becomes quite easy to understand where the links may have come from.

The balance in our bodies between good and bad bacteria is rocked by the use of this kind of dietary lifestyle, and thus our body has much less chance of fighting off illness as it is seeing the healthy remaining cells infected by a parasitic yeast infection. Indeed, as far back as 2001 we discovered that Helicobacter Pylori – a kind of bacteria – was seriously linked to stomach cancer.

Add in the fact that many of us are now taking antibiotics on a regular basis and it’s no surprise that this genetic mutation occurs so regularly. We kill off all bacteria – including the bacteria we need to fight off serious illness – when we take antibiotics. Added in to a poor diet that feeds the parasitic yeast infections, and it’s easy to see why the link between these conditions can be so easily looked at.

Cancer cells can now grow at a far more accelerated rate in the body than they would have if you ate a realistic and healthy diet free of these problems.

Yeast and Cancer

The most important aspect to look at next, then, is whether the links between yeast and cancer have any kind of definition together. When injury and/or infection occurs, the rate of multiplication is known as the growth factor. Well, yeast and cancer seem to share an oddly similar growth pattern and thus it becomes very hard to work out what the next stage might be for research – they do seem incredibly similar.

As parasitic yeast invades the body, much like cancer it adapts to the host cells and converts them slowly, multiplying the growth factor quite significantly. This creates mutates cells that eventually causes the body to struggle to stop the wound at the source. Before long, it more or less over-runs your body and makes it nearly impossible to come back from. The frightening aspect about this, then, is that doctors and professionals seem to know.

“Friendly Bacteria”

In recent, a well-known Italian doctor, Dr. Tulio Simoncini, knotted that at their most basic levels cancer and yeast have exceptionally similar characteristics. They both do the following;

  • Cancer and candida both feed on sugar like parasites, using it to grow stronger and to retain their power over other cells.
  • They both grow and re-produce only when they are place in what is known as an anaerobic environment. This means an environment without air – i.e. your stomach!
  • Both also need to be in an acidic environment to survive; without this they would die out. Where is very acidic? The human body.
  • Cancer cells have the same white and uneven texture that you see when you look at yeast.

Indeed, the bacteria that we seem to find all the time in cancer? According to the Lankenau Hospital Research Institute, this is found in more or less every cancerous tumor they looked at! The similarities among both are quite uncanny, aren’t they?

So, what’s the big conspiracy here? Is there really something in this, or is it just two illnesses that seem to be the same?

It’s time to look at the term friendly bacteria in a little closer detail. As we said above, when you take antibiotics they kill off everything – good and bad – that counts as bacteria in the body. With 800 strains of bacteria in the gut alone, and antibiotics do their best to wipe these out. Aer antibiotics really a cancer-accelerating assassin?

Given that our bodies produce so many strains of bacteria, the fact that 12 are specifically removed by using antibiotics is something that should make eyebrows twitch, at the very least. They drive around 85% of our immune system and they do this by creating an antibody within yourself that help to fight back against illness naturally.

They also help to make sure that folic acids, vitamins like B-12 and vitamin K can get through as well as anti-cancer vitamins like biotin can be released into the system. The problem we have with this is the fact that many antibiotics remove these!

Selection of prescription strength probiotics

They’ll also help you kill of carcinogenic problems like oestrogen, nitrosamines and mercury in the system. They even produce anti-cancer chemicals from your food!

Given that antibiotics are known to go on a killing spree inside the body, wiping out that friendly bacteria, why should we trust these antibiotics? According to experts, our poor dietary choices are running amok in our systems and causing untold problems.

They reduce the action of these solutions, and we acidize our bodies by eating the way that we do. Instead, these nutrients and these bacteria – which we have had since, well, ever! – do their best work in alkaline bodies.

Instead, we feed our bodies sugar and dairy which are two of the main causes of yeast growth in the body. The enemy of cancer is the very thing that we destroy by having poor dietary choices. Instead of helping our bodies, we are forcing them to fight a losing battle.

Introducing Milton White

It pays off to listen to the medical opinions of experts, even though we are actually doubting the very same authorities at this moment in time! Let’s take Milton White, for example. White believes that cancer is nothing more than a chronic, infectious and deadly fungal disease. By finding fungal spores in every cancer tissue he has ever looked at, he believes that the link has moved quite extensively away from being a tenuous one towards being far more effective as a long-term aim to discover.

Indeed, many other medical professionals agree with white. Take our Italian friend we spoke about earlier – he has his patients take a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda – baking soda – in a glass of water half an hour before their breakfast. Why? Because this alkalizes the body. As we suggested above, alkalizing the body gives the digestive tract the help it needs in getting a fight back going against the cancer cells in the first place – it also helps to fight back against candida.

Another expert who backs up the assertions of White, and people like him, is popular author Doug Kaufmann. Kaufmann believes that the fungi in our foods have a major part to play in getting cancer, with foods like barley, wheat, corn and peanuts regularly contaminated with fungal poisons otherwise known as mycotoxins. Aflatoxin, a mycotoxin, is the most carcinogenic substance on this planet – and it finds a way into some of the most commonly eaten food on the planet.

Are you seeing a rather terrifying pattern here? We are.

Whilst our natural immune systems can fight back against this rather impressively, when we start to use antibiotics we burn away our main form of resistance to this major problem. Just about every illness out there these days can find some kind of suggestive link to the problem of candida overgrowth. Whilst there is no 100% certified proof at this moment that they are one and the same, there is more than enough information out there now to show there is a solid connection amongst cancer and candida overgrowth scenarios.

Key Factors to Consider

Let’s look at some of the most common scenarios that arise that give us a reason to believe that there may be more to this than meets the eye;

At this moment in time, there is a massive overlap in the symptoms of Candida overgrowth, irritable bowel syndrome, Celiac disease and various other conditions which all have one issue at the root of them – chronic fatigue. If you are showing any kind of chronic fatigue or conditioning along the lines of IBS or Celiac disease then you might just be one of the people who has a candida overgrowth occurring.

Many of the best natural alternatives and remedies to Candida are a piece of cake to get a hold of. Cider vinegar which has been unpasteurized, garlic, whole clove teas, wild oregano oil and most importantly of all baking soda can give your body a chance to fight back against the overgrowth. Now, let’s look at the treatment options for cancer (which are 100% medically backed i.e. a doctor won’t laugh at you for suggesting it) – chemotherapy, surgery, radiotherapy.

Baking soda on spoon with box

What’s more expensive? A tub of baking soda? Or a six month bout of chemo that might not even work? Leaving our tin hats at the bedside for a moment, we know what sounds more convincing. A simple yeast infection which has overgrown and created a monster and can be dealt with using the sources, or a major and terrifying health condition that has only a very limited number of potential cures. What can be sold more effectively?

By wiping out live yeast colonies in the body, you might think you have done enough. However, so long as your probiotic levels are low the yeast will return – you need to look for strong probiotics to deal with it once and for all.

This is why baking soda is so popular – it’s a cheap as chips solution to giving your body the tools it need to fight back properly. Again, though, a hospital can’t charge you daft amounts of money for a tub of baking soda. Whilst the likes of Dr. Simoncini and also Dr. Mark Sircus can see the growing links between the conditions, many others are more than happy to ignore these issues at present.

With the medical professionals worldwide handing out antibiotics and telling you this is what you need despite its well-known destructive tendencies, does this not set alarm bells ringing in your mind?

We don’t have all the answers yet ourselves but one thing is for sure – we are beginning to find out far more about the links between cancers and candida. Sadly, medical professionals are no clearer to us about the onset of these conditions at all.

However, don’t think that is just some big conspiracy about cancer and candida alone. Candida can be found in anything from diabetes and dementia to allergies and asthma; it’s becoming a common find in just about anything that can go wrong with the body – there is never this much smoke without fire.

Interview with Dr. Simoncini


Basically, take a further look for yourself and see what you think. At the time of writing, though, we are more convinced than ever that something is amiss here. Candida overgrowth should be a primary concern moving forward for any kind of illness that you have, so start looking into the major symptoms associated with candida overgrowth.

Think you suffer from these? Then look into the treatment options such as baking soda. They are far more likely to give you help – just look into the great work carried out by Dr. Simoncini – then traditional antibiotic solution.

These are now being shown to be far less effective than previously considered, and it might just be about time that we started looking into this on a closer perspective. The idea of leaving antibiotic management of our bodies alone and just continuing on, though, seems a little tough after seeing the massive links between candida overgrowth and so many negative illnesses.

Sadly, cancer appears to be one of them.

    We need more people to acknowledge this issue. I am a candida sufferer and I know some cures out there work. One in particular that even brought back my sense of smell. Problem is, the candida get immune to it after a couple of 15 day cleanses. I felt so much better though during that time. I suffer from nasal/sinus polyps that I’ve had surgically removed twice and both times the E.N.T. put me on prednezone to shrink the polyps and an antibiotic (of course) before the operation. The prednezone definitely worked because I could smell within a few days of taking it. If I knew then what I know now about candida, I would’ve told that doctor where to go. I am certain those drugs made the candida overgrowth worse or possibly initiated it in the first place. Yes I could smell after the first operation for about a year. After the second one, I still didn’t get my sense of smell back but I didn’t know how eating certain foods could affect growths in the body at that time.

    I did a ton of research after I noticed a white film on my tongue one day at work and learned it was possibly oral thrush. In turn I was led to something called candida. I read all about symptoms and I probably had about 40 of the 50 or so that were mentioned. I knew many symptoms could be caused by many things but I figured I would humor myself and try some recommendations. I changed my diet to cut out sugar, grains and refined carbs and purchased a $35 15 day candida cleanse. I was positive that that’s what was wrong with me. So, after about a week I felt so awful and had to go home from work. It was worse than the flu. I called the health store and they said to stay on it as I was having die-off symptoms. Within a few days, I was feeling better. I figured that was it, but every day after that, I kept feeling better than the previous day. It’s hard to explain but I didn’t think feeling that good was possible. I saw the white on my tongue shrink to nothing. I even got my sense of smell back which was my biggest piss-off about the whole thing. You lose your smell… pretty much lose your taste as well which depresses me every time it happens and I go into a downward spiral again. Once I get sick of not being able to smell or taste, I try to change my diet again and find another cleanse but nothing worked as well as the original one. The second time I did it, I didn’t really even change my diet and it still took away my symptoms and brought back my smell so I knew it was the product and not the diet alone. It worked a couple more times after that but then not so much as I knew the candida become immune. And every time the cycle starts, they come back worst than before. It’s a vicious cycle.

    So for my rant, anyone who thinks that candida is a money making conspiracy and that it’s not linked to pretty much every health problem out there is probably not a candida sufferer and well………..can kiss my ass! How about studying the effects of these cleansing programs to show they actually work? I’d be a volunteer! The conspiracy is not that companies are trying to sell something that claims to heal all your health problems (most of them are trying to help you because they went through it themselves), it’s that the government probably knows they will lose a lot of money if everyone believes all this candida stuff. I swear that’s probably why doctors say “they don’t know anything about candida.” Of course they do but the government doesn’t make money on healthy people! Yes there are people who try to take your money for things that don’t work or overcharge for products but every cleanse I’ve tried has helped at least a little. Some are better than others but maybe it depends on the person and how severe the infection. The government should jump on the band wagon and start making supplements for candida, then they would make money and maybe it could be included in drug plans so more people could reap the benefits.

    Anyway, I researched and started to put things together without the help of a doctor (who gets paid to give out drugs) that the polyps are fungus, which in turn I thought derived from the candida. Candida thrives on sugar. Sugar is a leading cause of health problems. God, why can’t everyone see this by now?

    I do really agree that cancer is a fungal disease especially caused by overgrowth of Candida albicans that I wittnessed with examples in my wife’s case of breast cancer.But oncologist unnecessarily giving chemotheraphy that aggravates the situation more worsen.
