Is Cancer A Fungal Infection?

I just recently read this article from I have long been a fan of his podcasts. If you haven’t heard of Doug Kaufman, check out his information. It definitely makes you think about cancer in a whole different way. Tomorrow I will share my protocol for avoiding cancer and fungi in general. It’s ALOT easier than you think!

A Testimonial By Penny Mullens

Written by Know The Cause

I was diagnosed with aggressive, infiltrating stage III breast cancer in 2002 when I was just 47 years old, with six of my eight children still at home. The youngest ones were 5, 8, and 10. I was 10 years younger than my maternal aunt was when she was diagnosed.   p-mullens
The traditional route of treatment was offered to me. When breast cancer is diagnosed, you’re made to feel like you have to make a decision yesterday, and before you can blink, you’re scheduled for a double mastectomy (with reconstruction) and shuttled back and forth between oncologists, tests, and scans. Your world has been turned upside down, and while spinning out of control, you’re supposed to make informed, well-researched decisions. You do what you’re told. You follow the pack. You choose the known, I’m ashamed to say.

Hundreds of thousands of dollars, 77 linear inches of incisions, AND seven drain tubes later, I was sporting reconstructed breasts. I lived in a motorized recliner for six weeks, and I couldn’t lift anything heavier than 1/2 gallon of milk. I couldn’t walk upright for 13 weeks. Huge doses of antibiotics were administered routinely. Powerful narcotics kept pain managed and allowed me asleep. It took a terrible toll on my immune system.

I had another surgery to install the port: more anesthesia, more drugs for pain. At this point, I was gearing up for the first round of Adriamycin and Cytoxin – every 21 days for almost six months, to be followed by Taxotere and possibly radiation. Gearing up means filling all the drugs to manage the side effects, signing all the paperwork acknowledging that you’ll not hold anyone liable for anything and agreeing that you understand that the result of treatment for your cancer may mean permanent heart, liver, lung, eye, and kidney damage. Hair can (and does) fall out, nails may be permanently misshapen, discolored, or never grow back… and on and on. This paperwork that signs away your life takes hours and is terrifying if you really listen and read. (Who really does under these circumstances? If one really did, one would bolt out of there!)

Chemotherapy ranks up there with the worst experiences of my life. Everything that could go wrong did, so through the continuing haze of nausea, constipation, injections for low white blood cell counts, I decided that I would choose a shorter life expectancy than to continue with this protocol. When begging my oncologist (and family doctor) for ideas on a lower dosage or alternative treatment, I was told that this was the “gold standard” of breast cancer treatment. I was told that if I didn’t take it, I’d have two years to live. But I wanted to try something different, and I asked if the oncologist would at least follow my progress and perform routine tumor markers. He dismissed me.

Enter the “anti-fungal” approach! Through a series of people, I was introduced to the work of Doug Kaufmann. I devoured The Germ that Causes Cancer, read with my finger in the glossary. But, I saw myself in the pages of the anti-fungal questionnaire (constant sinus infections, excessive antibiotic use, high carb consumption, exposure to environmental mold, weight issues, major stress, fatigue), and I embraced the whole theory as making complete sense. I saw the duplicity in the medical/pharmaceutical industry. I saw the money trail. I saw the science behind mycology. I saw the chain of sickness caused by fungus, treat the fungus with antibiotics, another illness, treat with antibiotics… I GOT IT ALL!

I actually found the program to be really do-able and completely affordable (most OTC anti-fungals are less than $12 monthly). The food was plentiful and tasty. There was a learning curve for the first weeks, but really, it was super easy. I never felt better! Though in my late forties, I felt like I was in my twenties; my skin and hair were healthy, and I went my merry way optimistically. My tumor markers remained low and all x-rays clear.

Over the long haul though, as one gets further removed from the “scare”, old habits creep back in and improper responses to stress return. And in my case, another mold exposure problem ensued; in November 2013, ten years later, I was diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer metastasis to my bones. I was told there was no cure and that prayer was my best hope.

I immediately returned to what I knew to do – the anti-fungal diet, OTC anti-fungals, and several rounds of prescription anti-fungals. All were inexpensive and easy. Three and a half months later, I was pronounced “in complete remission” with “no evidence of avid malignancy”.

I keep asking, “Really? Really! Can it be this quick, this cheap, this easy?” Folks, it is! The cancer industry has us snookered! I’m walking proof!

      Kim, Don’t worry I didn’t die or anything. I started a new job and have been working insane hours. I also barely made it through another Michigan winter. Yuk. I’m back! What would you and your patients like me to write about?

    I am so glad you are back. I took a long break too! We moved and life got really crazy with the boys. I think months went by and I didn’t write anything. I seriously thought something happened to you too!! I am just starting to blog again, but I don’t know if I am going to keep it up. I should just read yours and call it a day. I hope you join fb eventually.. let us all know. Now that I have learned that people actually make $$ (not me of course :)) on blogging I have gotten much better at all the politics. If you ever want me to take down the post about ur anti-wrinkle eye cream that I used for my whole face… just let me know! It is so not worth weird vibes 🙂 You are such a great resource. I think you were one of the first people I ever met on wordpress…. i was such a baby then.

    I’m really pissed about people generalizing the science of cancer into very simplified ideas or answers. If you want to understand cancer you have to spend hundreds of hours reading about it, and not just quack garbage from advertisements. You need to read scholarly journal articles, and you may require help from someone who has a university education, or else it will take a very long time to read them. Articles from journals like “Blood” or “The Oncologist” or “Pathology – Research and Practice” to name a few random ones. From my knowledge, viruses can cause cancer, this is because they attempt to invade your cells and insert their DNA into the DNA of your cells, doing so ruins the sequence of your DNA and can break genes which are crucial for preventing your cells from growing out of control, these are called “tumour suppressor” genes. I also understand that when your body is under constant irritation, from an infection, fungal, bacterial, viral, or whatever, it may start to disrupt your body’s ability to fight cancers and allow them to grow. I am not saying that fungus may cause cancer or promote cancer growth, but I am saying that I am certain that cancer is caused by a wide variety of pressures on our bodies. The sun, man made chemicals, viral and bacerial infections, and perhaps fungus. All I wish is that if you or someone you know has some type of cancer that you fully research the issue, for many many days and hours, from legitimate sources, not random “” sites or sites that try to sell you crap. Like, just look at this site, they’re talking about, they just want to sell you junk, He’s sitting there with a buncha junk that he wants to sell you. Yes, being healthy is important, don’t eat processed foods and make sure you go out and exercise. Processed foods meaning anything a caveman wouldn’t eat, like sugar that isn’t part of a fruit, or bread, bread is processed too. But really, you don’t need this antifungal crap, because maybe you have a virus, or maybe you have H. Pylori, a baceria that can cause stomach ulcers and cancer.

    I am currently working in a cancer research laboratory. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at I’d be happy to help you do some research and ask your doctors the right questions. I am not opposed to “alternative” medicine, but I do believe that modern medicine is sometimes the answer, and that perhaps using them in conjuction is the best method.
