Hveragerthi, I totally agree, moderators as I understand it were supposed to be neutral.
I too have noticed bias creeping in, so under the circumstances I think we are in need for a change of moderators once more.
Yes, I see Mr. Power Trip hid my message because it showed that oleander would not work according to his own belief system that cancers are not caused by pathogens but rather inflammation. Problem is that there is not evidence that inflammation is an actual cause of cancer and inflammatory markers are not always increased with cancer. Yet it has been shown that some cancer cells contain extra genetic material in them, which also contributes to chemo and radiation resistant tumors. This extra genetic material is from the viruses that insert themselves in to the cell leading to the cancer formation. So I pointed out that since oleander works due to polysaccharides, which activate white blood cells AGAINST PATHOGENS, that if there is no pathogen induced cancers then the oleander has no basis to work. But the moderator is a oleander supporter so my right to free speech was suppressed to protect only HIS point of view.
And instead of providing evidence that there are other factors involved in oleander therapy he instead responds with personal insults in violation of TOS, but threatens me with baning for doing back what he was doing to me.
He was also upset with me because he stated in previous posts that he is against soy in part because it is heavily processed. So I pointed out that the oleander has to heavily processed to render it safe since it is full of very poisonous cardiac glycosides. Apparently I committed the ultimate sin by showing a contradiction in his reasoning. Well, it was not the first time. He has contradicted his own reasoning numerous times. But I also pointed out that there are all sorts of non-toxic immune stimulating polysaccharide sources that do not need to be processed at all to render them safe. Seaweeds, medicinal mushrooms, myrrh, echinacea, birch, schisandra, marshmallow root, lycii berries, nutritional yeast, astragalus, etc. Apparently presenting non-toxic alternatives to oleander is another cardinal sin.
