Cancer, Fungus and Sodium Bicarbonate: Tullio Simoncini and The Research that Wasn’t…

    Cancer ResearchOn his website, Tullio Simoncini tells us about his groundbreaking “discovery” that cancer is a fungus – candida albicans to be precise – which can be cured with baking soda (or sodium bicarbonate). To explain the fungus, Simoncini argues this is due to “excess acidity” of the body, which allows the fungus free rein. 

    According to Simoncini, lowering the body’s acidity by administering baking soda cures the fungus = the cancer.

Is there hope after all?

ScienceYesterday I received some e-mails.

The first was from a lady whose mother is suffering from cancer. During her mother’s illness, this lady searched the internet for information on cancer and decided it would be a good idea to collect everything she found in one place. So she started a blog.

She says on her blog: “I wanted to have a place where all the information I was researching on the internet could be stored in one convenient location (…). In addition, I wanted to make sure that all the information was positive, so having our own blog made that easy.”  Read more of this post

From our Italian Friends

horizontalrosesTransl. Beatis

Many times, we have spoken on this blog about the dangers of falling for the massive amounts of misinformation on how to cure cancer that is foisted on desperate people by alternative “healers.”

Here is another dramatic example: the heartbreaking story of a young Italian woman with breast cancer, who turned to Tullio Simoncini for help and was cruelly let down. The story created much echo and indignation on the Italian internet. Everyone diagnosed with cancer, who believes in the natural goodness and altruism of alternative “healers” and is considering treatment by Tullio Simoncini or any other alternative miracle healer, should read this.

Tullio Simoncini Cures Woman of Bladder Cancer by e-mail


Tullio Simoncini is an ex-medical doctor who was convicted for fraud and involuntary manslaughter. Simoncini claims that cancer is no more than an infection of the fungus candida albicans and that it can easily be cured with sodium bicarbonate (baking soda).

Lorna, a young woman who was diagnosed with bladder cancer, claims to have been cured of this disease by Tullio Simoncini. She never met Simoncini – he just sent her instructions through e-mail, after which she was able to administer the treatments herself. And Simoncini did not even charge her one penny for this life saving treatment! Now, how wonderful is that?  Read more of this post

Alternative Cancer Treatments: The Deadly Dangers of Magical Thinking

the_lorelei6Magical thinking is the assumption that if I do this, then that will happen. It is an illogical thought pattern that involves linking unrelated actions or events.

Things like emotional stress and events of great personal significance can push us toward magical meaning-making.

Magical thinking is widespread and most of the time it’s harmless, such as the use of mascots in sports. But there is a tipping point, beyond which it can become quite sinister and even deadly.

Tullio Simoncini’s Miracle Cure of Cancer in CAT Scans…

Here are 4 CAT scans, 2 of hepatic carcinoma, 2 of pulmonary metastasis. According to Italian ex-doctor Tullio Simoncini, the liver cancer has substantially regressed and the lung metastases have disappeared after he treated this patient with sodium bicarbonate. The problem is however, that there are are several things wrong with these scans. Please study them carefully – be sure to click on the images to enlarge them – and tell us what you see…

Eternal fame as well as a special prize will be awarded to the first person on this blog who comes up with all the right answers. 🙂

(Edit) Here are the correct answers, given by Jli and Alvin

  1. The Pulmonary CAT-scans are taken at different levels.
  2. The patient identity of the CAT-scan supposedly showing regression of the pulmonary metastasis is hidden (in contrast to the other scans).
  3. There is not a substantial regression of the liver tumor. Maybe this “misunderstanding” comes from the misconception of his that cancers are black on CAT-scans. The darkest area in the centre of the liver tumor is actually necrosis. On the first scan the actual cancer is slightly darker than the normal liver. Again the scans are not taken at the exact same level.
  4. The dates on the scans have been hidden.

By the way – there might be a relationship between fungus and cancer, but not quite in the way Tullio Simoncini is trying to make us believe. Click here for more information.

Marjolein Dies of Ovarian Cancer After Being Treated with Sodium Bicarbonate by Tullio Simoncini

With great sadness we learned that Marjolein Bouwman, a young Dutch woman and once-advocate of Tullio Simoncini’s cancer therapy, died of metastasized ovarian cancer on November 2, 2008.

When Marjolein Bouwman was first diagnosed with ovarian cancer, she was advised to take conventional therapy. Instead, she decided to contact Tullio Simoncini in Rome, where she was given a number of injections with sodium bicarbonate by him. The other part of the treatment consisted of infusions of sodium bicarbonate, which Marjolein adminstered herself in her own home in the Netherlands. Soon after, Simoncini declared that Marjolein was completely cured. Ecstatically happy, Marjolein became a staunch advocate of Simoncini’s sodium bicarbonate therapy. However, undeniable proof of her miracle cure was never delivered, in spite of repeated promises.

A few months ago, Marjolein stated that Simoncini had deceived her and that she had not been cured at all. At that time, her cancer had already metastasized so extensively that she had a less than 40% chance of recovery. She also said that Simoncini’s useless therapy had caused her to lose valuable time, which might well have been fatal. 

Marjolein was only 25 years old and the mother of a little boy.

Is cancer a fungus?

Tullio Simoncini claims that all cancers are fungi. Can this really be true?

Cancer is no more than a fungus – candida albicans to be precise – says Tullio Simoncini, and it can be cured with baking soda (sodium bicarbonate)Read more of this post

Breast Cancer Patient Sylvia Dies After Being Treated by Tullio Simoncini with Sodium Bicarbonate

On October 8, 2007 a Dutch breast cancer patient died in the Netherlands after she was treated with sodium bicarbonate injections by Tullio Simoncini. The cascade of events is subject to investigation by the department of public prosecution/the police and the Netherlands Health Care Inspectorate.
In his home country, Tullio Simoncini was banned from his medical profession for life. Also, he was convicted for fraud and wrongful death in 2003. For several years he has been practising alternative medicine in Italy and the Netherlands. Sometimes he rents room in ‘the Clinic for Preventive Medicine Berg en Bosch in Bilthoven’, Utrecht region, Netherlands. In this clinic, several alternative healers provide scientifically unproven therapies for cancer.
