 Natural Life Extension: Fasting, Mono-diets and Raw Food Days (and Chelation Therapy) 

He goes on to describe an important finding in Switzerland:

Free radical inhibition by EDTA may explain the recently published observation of Blumer in Switzerland, who reported a 90 per cent reduction in deaths from cancer in a large group of chelated patients (they had all been chelated following a lead toxicity scare in their area) who had been carefully followed over an 18 year period. When compared with a statistically matched control group (who had received no chelation therapy) Blumer reported a ten times greater death rate from cancer in the untreated group, compared to the death rate of the patients who had been treated with EDTA. A greatly reduced incidence of cardiovascular disease was also observed.

Here then were people, all living in similar city environments, of the same age and sex, and eating roughly the same diets, who had a 10-fold difference in incidence of cancer, with the only difference between them being that some had received chelation therapy some 20 years earlier, and others had not.

As described earlier, it is now largely a matter of accepted medical fact that free radical damage plays a major part in the onset of cancer and in developing the scene for cardiovascular disease, and EDIA removes this risk dramatically by chelating surplus ionic metals from the system. Elmer Cranton has documented the benefits of EDIA therapy to people suffering cardiovascular and other diseases in his book Bypassing Bypass, and I have given my explanation of its value in my 1991 book Chelation Therapy. Chelation therapy's only drawback is its cost, since it is generally only available privately unless you are suffering from obvious heavy metal toxicity.

Chelation therapy involves a series of infusions of EDIA in a solution into a vein, a process which takes up to 90 minutes, and which needs to be repeated as much as 20 times over a three month period in order to get maximum benefits. If you wish to learn more about this remarkable and useful approach to switching off free radical pathology you are referred to one of the books just mentioned.

In the next chapter I deal with the usefulness of additional supplementation to augment and support the calorie restriction programme.
