Death is inevitable from a biological viewpoint. Biographer Walter Isaacson tells how Steve Jobs did not know his own biological father until later in life. The other issue was Steve Jobs’ eternal Father. Evidently, Jobs’ cancer made him reevaluate his reason for existence.
Isaacson reveals several of the best stories from the biography, including the fact that Jobs had actually met the man who turned out to be his biological father before he knew who he was. He also talks about the discussion he had with Jobs about death and the afterlife, explaining that for Steve, the odds of there being a God were 50-50, but that he thought about the existence of God much more once he was diagnosed with cancer. Another aspect of Jobs' character revealed was his disdain for conspicuous consumption. He tells Isaacson in a taped conversation how he saw Apple staffers turn into "bizarro people" by the riches the Apple stock offering created. Isaacson says Jobs vowed never to let his wealth change him.— Biographer: Jobs refused early and potentially life-saving surgeryHowever, since the actual alternative means used to treat Jobs cancer is not documented, many people say that there is no other cure except excision of cancers to prevent death. Yet nobody that I have heard of having had a cancer cut out has lived passed 120 years. Most die within a few years, depending upon their age and health.
Iatrogenics is alive and well. It is understandable that people look for alternatives to medicine when people read headlines stating “doctors kill 2,450% more Americans than all gun-related deaths combined”
Numerous testimonies exist of people who have had cancer,who have been cured by alternative means, and who have died from other means. Yet these methods of cancer cure are prohibited in the USA and many parts of the world where people have money, to pay for costly cancer treatments that might, or might not be totally effective—the side effects in many instances are excruciating.
There are about a dozen effective natural remedies, ranging from herbs, such as mistletoe, to dieting and to extracts from apricot seeds that have been demonstrated to cure cancers, not to mention the cures obtained from meditation and prayers of forgiveness. However, the herbal, dieting and other medicinal extracts have been banned from Canada and the USA, even Europe.These are known of as the forbidden cures.
In fact, I know of one woman who died from pancreatic cancer after she had suffered from bowel cancer and had two previous operations where the affected part of her bowel was removed. Then this woman took a couple of natural products that not only gave her good health but also caused the cartilage in her joints to grow. Unfortunately, five years later, after a family dispute, she decided to take the advice of an ignorant family member and a year later she was found to have cancer in the bowel again. She died from pancreatic cancer some six months after the bowel cancer became aggressive.
The oncologist attending her pancreatic cancer was surprised that it took six years for her to be diagnosed once more with cancer after having two operations for removal of bowel cancer. From his experience, a third operation for removal of bowel cancer followed the second more quickly than the second operation followed the first operation.
This woman lived some six years longer than she would have done had she not used products that actually prevent the body from developing cancer—although this is not their main purpose. Unfortunately, the woman discarded what was providing her good health, because she felt she was so healthy that she had no need of it—or so she claimed, even if she was being influenced by bad advice as a result of sibling rivalry.
While Steve Jobs may have been pointed to the inability of physicians and surgeons to provide eternal life, even to prolong life beyond 122 years 164 days. Not so sure that it is true that Jeanne Calment had only one wrinkle as she is reported to have delightfully claimed: ''I've never had but one wrinkle, and I'm sitting on it.''
This woman smoked all her life. At the age of 117, she was told to give up smoking by a doctor because it would kill her. From one source:
Mme Jeanne Calment, who was listed as the world's oldest human whose birth date could be certified, died at 122. She had begun smoking as a young woman. At 117 she quit smoking (by that age she was just smoking two or three cigarettes per day because she was blind and was too proud to ask often for someone to light her cigarettes for her). But she resumed smoking when she was 118 because, as she said, not smoking made her miserable and she was too old to be made miserable. She also said to her doctor: "Once you've lived as long as me, only then can you tell me not to smoke." Good point! [USA Today, "Way to go, champ," 10/18/95]Author Dr. Bruce King writing about the reasons for Jeanine Calment’s longevity:
She credited her longevity to laughing a lot and not getting stressed out. She is quoted as saying “If you can’t do anything about it, don’t worry about it.” It probably didn’t hurt that her life circumstances — born into wealth and married wealth — enabled a life of ease and comfort; in other words, no mental stress.Effective removal of cancer should mean that there is no relapse. This is not guaranteed by any method. Cancers can go into remission for years before they are able to return and metastasize with vengeance.
The amount of time I have spent in the sun I should have had numerous cancers by now, as I had been sunburnt many times when a child. For a fair-skinned person who loves the sun and does not use sun lotion, either I am unique or particular people with a strong self-interest are filling the pockets of propagandists.
