Kehr’s curiosity launched the natural medicine benchmark

Finding your passion is a seminal moment in life. Webster Kehr found his passion in the early 2000s — and parlayed it into the Internet’s leading website for natural cancer treatments and prevention.

“More than a decade ago I was working for the U.S. Army, in Fort Leavenworth. I was assigned to go to Germany and before I could go to Germany I had to have a physical exam.”

Kehr was diagnosed with hypertension, he was prescribed drugs, and he did not like the side effects. This led Kehr to research for natural treatments for hypertension.

“I would also see websites about natural treatments for cancer. Some of the websites said natural treatments for cancer were very effective and other websites said it was all quackery, you need to avoid it.”

Spurred by a desire to learn as much as possible about the ongoing cancer treatment debate, Kehr launched in 2003. He also founded the Independent Cancer Research Foundation.

“If a person knew the real cause of cancer — that microbes inside the cell cause low adenosine triphosphate [ATP] — they could say, ‘OK, how do I kill those microbes inside the cancer cells?’ ” Kehr surmised. “The average person on the street thinks that cancer is incurable because it’s caused by DNA damage.

“They have no clue what the truth is. They have been fed lies all their lives. They believe it, of course. Anybody would believe something they are told 100 times a month.

“Except for really advanced cases where they were diagnosed very late,” Kehr added, “cancer is fairly easy to control and take care of.”

Kehr, who retired in December 2015, remains passionate that research has proven what causes cancer — and remains committed to pushing forward with fact-based science.

Otto Warburg was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1931. His research at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute led to the discovery that the flavins and the nicotinamide were the active groups of the hydrogen transferring enzymes. This, together with the iron-oxygenase discovered earlier, gave a complete account of the oxidations and reductions in the living world.

The discovery opened up new ways in the fields of cellular metabolism and cellular respiration. He showed, among other things, that cancerous cells can live and develop, even in the absence of oxygen.

“[Warburg] determined the definition of a cancer cell is one with low adenosine triphosphate,” Kehr said. “Every cell in your body creates an enormous amount of ATP every second; the ATP is the energy of the cell.

“The definition of a cancer cell is that something is blocking the creation of ATP energy in the cell.”

There are those in orthodox medicine who contend DNA damage is the cause of cancer. “They have no interest in curing cancer,” Kehr noted. “Any cell biologist who thinks DNA damage can block the production of adenosine triphosphate should change careers.”

After more than a decade researching natural cancer treatments, Kehr said that if he were diagnosed with cancer, “Literally, I would laugh.”

“The Independent Cancer Research Foundation Reference Manual has hundreds of things that kill cancer cells, kill the microbes inside the cancer cells, a list of things to build the immune system.

“The reason I don’t fear cancer is that natural medicine can be unlimited in power.”
