The anti-cancer drug 714X has been around for some time, largely unheralded and quietly used by a small group of open minded and courageous physicians. Along with other alternative cancer treatments, it has a rocky and colorful history. Developed by Gaston Naessens, a Quebec biologist, 714X is merely a bi-product of some fundamental discoveries made by Naessens that relate not only to cancer and AIDS, but to the very nature of life itself. And that is precisely where Gaston Naessens overstepped his bounds. He proposed such a potential leap in medicine, such a paradigm busting science, that if he is ever acknowledged to be correct, biologists, as well as many medical practitioners, can throw away their textbooks
Whenever a departure from the generally accepted norm is proposed, those who are comfortably established within their discipline have a tendency to react with ferocious fervor in opposition to any threats to their authority. It’s a matter of ego, of position, and often, of insecurity. So they’ll go to great lengths to discredit any new ideas that oppose their own, well aired views. They lost little time in implementing the destruction of the upstart, Gaston Naessens.
Naessens ideas were so far reaching that vigorous skepticism was to be expected. That in itself was healthy. It is as it should be. But the fury of the attacks on him was mind boggling. In 1964 he was literally driven out of France, his homeland, all because another of his drugs, G.N.24 had helped thousands whom conventional medicine had failed
Naessens emigrated to Montreal, Canada where he was able to continue his work, with the help of the McDonald Stewart Foundation. Inevitably of course, scientific revolutionary that he was, he came to the attention of the Medical Corporation of Quebec. Feeling threatened, and determined to maintain the status quo, its director, Dr Augustin Roy, brought all his guns to bear in an intensive campaign to discredit him.
In May of 1989, Naessens was arrested without preliminaries, thrown into a filthy jail cell and charged with negligent homicide and practicing medicine without a license. Gaston Naessens was looking at a life sentence and Dr Roy was delighted by his success in removing a threat to his position. But he wasn’t counting on public opinion.
Dr Roy, in his own egocentric vacuum, had failed to recognize the public support that Naessens had steadily acquired. Massive demonstrations took place and international and celebrity support were unprecedented. Ultimately, Gaston Naessens was found innocent of all charges.
After the trial, patients benefiting covertly from 714X successfully pressured Health and Welfare Canada to allow open distribution of the drug under the Emergency Drug Relief Program. Since then thousands of prescriptions have been written by open minded Canadian doctors.
Here in the U.S., the opposition to 714X continues unabated. In 1992 the USFDA banned the importation of 714X for any use whatever, raided the offices of a Rochester New York company that was attempting to educate the public about it, and ultimately engineered the imprisonment of its principal officer, Charles Pixley.
Open minded and courageous alternative practitioners have used their collective ingenuity to find sources for 714X. So the drug is yet another weapon in the growing arsenal against cancer that has nothing in common with the chemo abomination; that is, it cures without killing the patient. Gaston Naessens has succeeded in disrupting the comfortable conventions of the past and caused the established authorities a supreme headache by compelling them to rethink their entire approaches to the treatment of, not only cancer, but nearly all other diseases as well.
This will never do. Change this radical is always resisted with all the ordinance the opposition can muster and the battle lines are drawn. Gaston Naessens is destined to remain hidden in obscurity or reviled as a quack for the foreseeable future, until one day, the dawn, which can never be held back, will break on a new day.
Today there are about 400 cancer treatments in general use by alternative practitioners. Which one is right for any individual can be a matter of serious conjecture. If you have cancer, it would be unwise to select any alternative treatment on the strength of the enthusiastic claims of anyone, regardless of how well meaning. An experienced alternative provider, or at least a very knowledgeable “cancer coach” is an essential player in the contest between cancer and wellness. Anyone with cancer is in no position to go it alone.
