To those of you who are plagued with serious questions and demand answers, you will be eternally indebted to Bonnie OSullivan. She is the editor of this 1999 edition of One Answer To Cancer.
Bonnie has addressed the editing of this book with a desire to get truthful, correct, intelligent and honest answers to the multitude of questions that have gone unanswered during her 37 years of diligent study and work within the health seeking community.
She has searched through all the collections of documents about the Kelley Metabolic Medicines Paradigm that she could find from Kansas, Texas, Washington, Pennsylvania, California, and Georgia and everywhere in-between to give you the answers you need and desire.
Bonnie attacked this task with her whole being and, like the proverbial pit bull with lockjaw, would not let go until all your questions were adequately answered.
That which you are about to read may change your life forever.
When I was 11 years old, my brother Scott was diagnosed with terminal cancer; he was 20 at the time. His story is unique because he was one of the 150,000 individuals lucky enough to find Dr. Kelleys book, One Answer To Cancer, and one of the only 33,000 to actually go on the program. Today, in 1997, he is healthy, cancer-free and living in California with his wife and three children. Scotts experience changed the lives of each member of our family.
For me, the effect appeared when I was older. Around the age of 19, I began to experiment with various diets. I would cross-reference my overall sense of energy and my performances in running 10 kilometers to the diets I used, always allowing at least 90 days between any changes. What I found should come as no surprise to anyone: When I consumed a largely uncooked vegetarian diet, eliminated alcohol consumption and drank plenty of fresh squeezed juices, my 10K running times and subsequent recovery periods were shorter than when I used a diet of more meat and cooked foods. In other words, my body worked better on simple fuels from nature.
For the greatest majority of us, we are born in perfect health. Our health and aging process after birth is largely influenced by genetics, culture, geography and, of course, the foods and liquids we consume. These things are all that distinguish who will grow to be strong and who will grow weak. Why is it some people can live lives of smoking and poor diet and live to be 90 and others are susceptible to ill health and disease while living a relatively healthy lifestyle? The fact is, regardless of outward physical appearance some people will become cancer victims and some apparently likely candidates wont. It is simply human nature that some bodies are innately stronger and more resistant than others are. As adult individuals we have only one variable which is in our total control: Our diets.
The difference in lifestyle that you have led and your ancestry three generations removed is remarkable. We live in a world where air pollution is a daily occurrence; we work in jobs that are demanding in time, tolerance and ability to change and adapt. We struggle to balance our career, family, spiritual, emotional and social lives, and, yet as a society we have largely failed to intelligently consider the fuel which runs this remarkable human body. Fuels that provide peak performance and keep our internal operating systems running properly.
When we are young, we feel invincible, immortal. Some of us develop habits and patterns in early adult life that prove detrimental later on. We eat too much dead food, drink too much alcohol, smoke cigarettes and take prescription drugs for any little perceived ill all the while wrongly trusting that the regulatory bodies of society will look out for our health.
Well, let me tell you, in the words of a great songwriter: "I read the news today oh boy."
Against the advice of leading doctors and scientists across the country, FDA commissioner Dr. Kessler approved the fat substitute Olestra for public consumption. Doctors across the country from John Hopkins to Harvard Medical warned against the possible fall-out from introducing this synthetic fat into the American diet for reasons which have been well published in the media, (see Appendix II). Interestingly most of the warning comes from the academic side of the medical science community. Why do you suppose that is? Ill tell you . . .
I have believed for a long time that the American Medical Complex and the Consumer Food and Beverage Industrial Complex have little interest in the prevention of disease. It makes far better business sense to let the population eat, drink and smoke to their hearts content and then offer seemingly high tech and expensive methods for cleaning up the aftermath. In the United States, the food industry alone generates 500 billion dollars in sales: Bacon, eggs, milk, fast food franchises, soft drinks, fried food, dead food, overcooked food, sweets, treats and canned goods. We have gotten away from simple diets and become human garbage disposals. Sixty percent of the American public is overweight. Clearly the large food conglomerates are successfully marketing to an oblivious public. After feeding your body with dead and processed foods for 20, 30, 40 or more years, things begin to run less perfectly. We have overlooked the processing energy required to digest bacon and eggs each morning, that steak in the evening and the cocktails in between. The result is the current health crisis where one in three will have cancer in their lifetimes not to mention heart disease.
But instead of educating the public on how our bodies function best, the medical establishment chooses instead to clean out those arteries with drugs and catheters, perform by-pass surgery or cut the problem out (or off) altogether. To be fair, the American medical community has done some wonderful things and made outstanding progress in the last 45 years. But it is simply not in their best interest to prevent disease. They are in the business of treating disease. This is where the money is: Surgery, MRI, radiation, chemotherapy, research and examinations. The doctors dont want a disease-fee society any more than lawyers want a perfectly honest one.
This booklet is intended to provide an alternative view to conventional medicine in regard to 20th Century disease to profess prevention in healthy people and educate those who are ill. The human body is the most incredible of discoveries. Perhaps it receives so little consideration because we all get one upon entering into this life. We take it for granted until it cries out to us. Read this book and incorporate everything in it you can into your lifestyle. Listen to your heart and the voice within you and seek the advice of a trusted physician. On that note, a word of caution: There are doctors who hold Dr. Kelley in high esteem and those who see him as a threat. Be prepared to encounter one or the other. The open-minded ones tend to be the former.
Finally Dr. Kelley was aggressively persecuted and oppressed during his years of treating cancer patients. His success was unparalleled in conventional medicine. Personally, both my brother and my chiropractor went to him; both were resolved of their disease. Dr. Kelley has been forbidden to advise cancer victims and this book must carry with it a warning to all, that it is not intended to be a cure, but rather a program to be used in conjunction with the guidance of your own physician for the resolution of degenerative disease. As the writer of this preface, I can say that the truth of Dr. Kelleys paradigm is both preventive and healing. I wish you Gods speed and hope that the truth will set you free.

Health is a wonderful possession. It does not last forever although most of us assume it will. It is not until we lose our health that we seek diligently to regain it. Often it is too late, and always too expensive.
It is the purpose of the Cancer Coalition to help those who desire better health and who are willing to work for their better health. It is ever the objective of The Cancer Coalition to point out the metabolic deficiencies in the metabolism of each person who has the malfunction, not to treat the disease who has the person.
It is our desire to advise, teach, and counsel a person in such a way that he and he alone is responsible for his or her health. A doctor cannot "cure" you of anything. If you have a broken arm, the physician may set it but only you your own body may "cure" or heal the break. Of course, during your lifetime you will need the help of many in the healing professions: The dentist, the osteopath, the chiropractor, the naturopath, the biochemist, the nutritionist, the therapist, and last, but not least, the spiritual counselor.
Although these may give you aid, you must assume the responsibility of accepting and following their advice.
In researching some of the more complex disease processes, it became more and more evident to us that cancer is a simple deficiency condition. We have proven this to our own satisfaction, and to the satisfaction of many counselees.
This publication is a simplified, condensed, practical application of our investigations and findings. We present these findings because there have been so many prayers unto God for a solution to this simple problem.
To successfully resolve cancer, however simple, is a tedious and lengthy metabolic process. It is not expensive as compared to the "accepted" surgical, radiological, or chemotherapy methods, and has proven very effective.
It is our desire that this booklet be a helpful aid to many who are themselves or have lost loved ones afflicted with malignancy.
A comprehensive defense program must recognize the existence of more than one potential enemy. Metabolic Medicine can handle other enemies besides cancer. It is, in fact, a lifestyle for peace or war one that can keep you in an ideal state of readiness.
Over the last 30 years or so, the medical profession and the medical community have progressed to unprecedented heights and achievements in areas of reconstruction and surgical procedure. They have worked hard and deserve every bit of the respect and honor they receive. They have done remarkably well in applying technological advances to their profession.
The medical community has centered its energies and advancement around the infectious and traumatic cases. It has all but conquered infections of all types. Surgical procedures and treatment of traumatic ills have advanced equally with control of the infectious diseases. In short, what the medical community does, it does well, unsurpassed in the history of mankind.
But the problems for which the medical community is so well trained and equipped to handle account for only a percentage of the illnesses in our society. In the balance of the cases involving degeneration or metabolic conditions, little hope is received.
Down through the years, cancer patients have had such excellent results with Metabolic Medicine that they have brought other family members and friends for nutritional counseling. The range of diseases for which Dr. Kelley has planned nutritional programs covers the complete gamut of degenerative and metabolic ills, even some infectious diseases and structural conditions.
Dr. Kelley distinguishes between degenerative disease and metabolic disease in this example: Adult-onset diabetes is degenerative; childhood-onset diabetes is metabolic. Metabolic diseases can result from improper nutrition to the fetus due to the faulty diet of the mother during pregnancy. (It is widely recognized among medical authorities that birth defects have risen dramatically in recent years.) Metabolic disease can result from injury or other trauma. Metabolic diseases are those which do not result from long-term physical degeneration.
Dr. Kelleys experience with over 33,000 benefactors led or leads him to believe that balancing body chemistry through nutrition is a fruitful approach which should be investigated on a larger scale. How long this will take, or whether it will be done at all, is a matter of speculation. Many readers, or their friends, are desperately seeking help for conditions that could be alleviated through nutritional balancing of body chemistry. Cancer is just one of these conditions. A large part of Dr. Kelleys Nutritional Counseling is devoted to planning nutritional programs for people who do not have cancer. Whatever the specific metabolic-degenerative condition may be, hope and encouragement is justified by the many favorable reports from those who have already benefited from Metabolic Medicine.
