Frederic Mohs, in 1957 produced his results of a 12,000 person study using the herb bloodroot and zinc chloride to destroy cancer cells. To day the American medical industry does not recognize the use of bloodroot to destroy cancer cells. Today Mohs' work has been almost destroyed by doctors not actually following the Mohs Chemosurgery Gangrene and Infections, but use a surgical technique instead. Learn about the books that have been suppressed.
Chemosurgery is the removal of tissue, such as
malignant, gangrenous or infected tissue, after it
has been fixed by chemical means. In the treatment
of external cancer, the purpose of chemical fixation
in situ is to facilitate the systematic microscopical
control of excision through the use of frozen
'The fixative chemical used is zinc chloride in a
'permeant ' base of stibnite and an ' agglutinant '
obtained from plant extracts. This is called Z-Io8a
by the author, who is Professor of Chemosurgery
in Wisconsin, U.S.A.
The technique consists in excising the carcinoma
surgically in a very limited way, and then applying
the fixative paste for a length of time dependent
upon the depth of penetration required; this fixed
tissue is then excised and frozen sections of the
under surface of this area are then examined; further
applications of the paste followed by further excision
are continued until the excision is microscopically
clear of growth. By limiting the application of the
fixative to the cancerous areas, selective destruction
of the neoplasm is possible, thus allowing greater
conservatism than in more orthodox methods of
treatment. The local lymph nodes are removed
surgically, if they are thought to contain growth.
The treatment may take eight hours and is performed
under local anesthesia.
The indication is mostly for skin carcinoma,
squamous-cell or basal-cell, and five-year cure rates
of over 84 percent and 98 percent respectively are
claimed, but the calculation of these figures is not
altogether clear. The main advantage of the method
lies in its conservatism, but the results are probably
no better than those from the more normal methods,
which are less time-consuming.
The author also advocates chemosurgery in the
treatment of benign and pre-cancerous lesions, for
certain inflammatory processes and for gangrene.
Those engaged in the treatment of cancer will be
interested to read this very well-presented book.
