One of the leading authorities of self-help education for cancer patients and considered by many authorities to be the world's leading expert on cancer, Dr. Leonard Coldwell, discussed the nature of the disease and why he believes chemotherapy, radiation, and mammograms cause cancer. In looking at the primary driver behind the illness, Coldwell contended that 90% of all cancers, as well as other sicknesses, are caused by stress. He pointed to "constant worries, doubts, and fears" as well as lack of self love and hope for the future as key factors in reducing energy levels, weakening the immune system, and leading to diseases like cancer.
He warned that patients who undergo traditional cancer treatments, like chemotherapy, are "as good as dead." As such, Coldwell shared some natural methods for fighting the disease. One tactic, he said, involves ingesting the combination of a spoonful of pharmaceutical baking soda and five spoonfuls of organic maple syrup, heated up to form a solid mass. This concoction, he said, acts as a "Trojan horse," since cancer cells will flock to the syrup's high sugar content and then be killed by the baking soda. Coldwell also advised drinking a gallon of water which contains a teaspoon of sea salt every day and avoiding the use of plastic containers for food and water. "You can always do the medical treatment," he said to those who may be skeptics, asking rhetorically "so why don't you try the natural first?"
Coldwell was highly critical of the mainstream medical industry which, he noted, nets billions of dollars from cancer detection and treatment. He asserted that the pharmaceutical industry has no interest in curing cancer and ultimately wants to turn it into a "manageable disease like diabetes." He claimed that his work towards eradicating cancer is so dangerous to the pharmaceutical industry that, when his first book was about to be published, he was offered a quarter of a million dollars to suppress it. After rebuffing the offer, Coldwell said, he was shot at two days later and had his car bombed two weeks after that. Citing similar treatment for other alternative treatment advocates, he lamented that "we live with daily death threats."
In the first hour, author Reza Kalili recounted his story of being a CIA operative while working in the Iranian Revolutionary Guard and talked about the current state of Iran. He explained that, after going to college in America, he returned to Iran right after the revolution and joined the Revolutionary Guard at the behest of a childhood friend's request for help. However, Kalili grew disheartened by the horrific acts of the new regime and decided to work with the CIA as their "eyes and ears" on the ground. Regarding the current state of Iran, Kalili alleged that the majority of citizens want a regime change but are "suffocated" by the "tyrannical rule of the clerics." He warned that the radical leaders of Iran believe that the present unrest in the Middle East is merely a "prelude to a new world order where the US and Israel don't exist."
