Popular Cancer Drug SPREADING Cancer?!
Imagine going through the hell of chemotherapy…
You deal with the constant fatigue… nausea… vomiting… and diarrhea. Maybe your hair even falls out.
But then you learn it was all for nothing.
Because your chemo didn’t cure your cancer – in fact, it may have made it worse.
Believe it or not, that may be what’s going on with a popular cancer RIGHT NOW.
And the FDA has just approved it for additional uses.
That means you and the people you love are at more risk than ever before. Here’s what you need to do to stay safe.
Pfizer’s Sutent hit the market in 2006 as a so-called “breakthrough” for stomach, bowel, esophageal, and pancreatic cancers.
And now, even though top medical experts advised against it, the FDA has approved the drug as a treatment for kidney cancer, as well.
It’s truly shocking the lengths the FDA will go to keep their buddies in Big Pharma happy.
Even if it means putting the lives of untold cancer patients on the line.
Of course, Pfizer would have us believe that Sutent is the stuff of miracles.
Yeah, not exactly.
As it turns out: Sutent has been shown to triple the chances of cancerous tumors metastasizing throughout your body.
Back in 2012, professor Raghu Kalluri from Harvard Medical School conducted a study on mice that had been genetically engineered to have breast cancer.
The mice were treated with Sutent – and in about a month, the original tumors had shrunk by 30 percent.
That’s the good news. Here’s the bad news.
More tumors had begun to grow – at three times the rate of the control group.
Sutent may have killed off the existing cancer, but it apparently superpowered other cancer cells.
Sutent “works” by damaging a type of cell called pericytes – and that helps cut off blood supply to tumors.
Sounds great… in theory.
But pericytes also help keep cancer cells from spreading. So when they are damaged, they release the cancer cells within the body, and they find somewhere else to metastasize.
But that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
As it turns out, Sutent has also been linked to heart damage, hemorrhaging, kidney failure, thyroid issues, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and it even carries a black-box warning for potentially fatal liver damage!
And that’s not all – there’s also a risk of a disturbing condition called “osteonecrosis of the jaw,” where the jawbone “dies” due to lack of blood.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with any kind of cancer, stay far away from Sutent and ask your doctor about other options.
Going another route could end up saving your life.
