Introducing Charles B. Simone, M.MS., M.D.
During your life, there are people you would like to meet,
and there are people you should meet. Meet now Charles B. Simone,
Masters of Medical Science, Medical Doctor, Medical Oncologist,
Immunologist, and Radiation Oncologist. He is the Founder of Simone
Protective Cancer Center, and author of
Cancer and Nutrition, A Ten Point Plan for Prevention and Cancer Life Extension;
The Truth About Breast Health and Breast Cancer, Prescription for Healing; The Truth
About Prostate Health and Prostate Cancer, Prevention and Cancer Life Extension;
and HOW TO SAVE YOURSELF FROM A TERRORIST ATTACK.
He has worked in cancer research and treatment since 1976.
Education and Positions
He graduated from Rutgers College of Medicine and also earned the
rare Masters of Medical Science while investigating the cancer killing
properties of plant herbals. After training in Internal Medicine at the
Cleveland Clinic (1975-77), Dr. Simone was offered a position in the
Immunology Branch and Medicine Branch and later in the Pharmacology Branch
and Medicine Branch at the National Cancer Institute, National Institutes
of Health, Bethesda, Maryland (1977-82). At the National Cancer Institute,
he trained in medical oncology and immunology.
In 1982 he accepted a position in the Department of Radiation Oncology
at University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA; and in 1985 began as
Associate Professor, Department of Radiation Oncology and Nuclear
Medicine at Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia. Since 1988,
he has been the Founder and Director of the Simone Protective Cancer Center.
While at the NCI, he commenced a series of outstanding scientific investigations that:
- uncovered the fundamental mechanism of how human white cells kill foreign cells.
- helped demonstrate how "complement proteins" aid in killing.
- demonstrated how adriamycin, an anti-cancer drug, operates at the cellular level.
- conceived and developed the idea of splicing monoclonal antibodies to killing cells that seek out
cancer cells, called directed effector cell killing.
Interest in Nutrition and Prevention
While thoroughly engrossed in basic science, Dr. Simone again
found new direction as a result of direct contacts with cancer
patients. One of his first patients was Vice President Hubert
Humphrey who was dying of malnutrition secondary to his cancer.
Later, a man his own age came to Simone at NCI and asked to be
kept alive for the birth of his child. Intensive chemotherapy
cleaned out the cancer, but he did not improve. "At last resort,
I gave him high doses of vitamins and minerals that quickly produced
a seemingly miraculous, but only temporary recovery." The man saw
the birth of his son.
Newly interested in nutrition, Dr. Simone realized that existing
cancer treatments produced limited results. Although billions
are spent on research, the number of new cancer cases rise year
after year. He decided to devote part of his time investigating
the effects of nutrition on cancer and the possibilities of cancer
The result was a landmark book, Cancer and Nutrition, A Ten Point
Plan to Reduce Your Chances of Getting Cancer (1982). This is
the only book endorsed by George Stringfellow, a founder of the
American Cancer Society. Dr. Simone now serves as a consultant
to major corporations, foreign countries, and has been asked to
advise prominent figures, including President Reagan, on the
principles of cancer prevention.
Cancer and Heart Disease Prevention
"Most cancers and heart disease can be prevented since the majority
are related to preventable factors: nutrition, tobacco, alcohol, etc.
The first step is to change one's diet," Dr. Simone says, "to a low-fat,
high-fiber diet, supplemented with certain vitamins and minerals.
The incidence of cancer will decrease if people modify their risk factors."
KidStart Program for Children
Dr. Simone put his research to work in a program he calls "KidStart"
based on their book, KidStart. "When children adopt a healthy lifestyle
early in life, the incidence of cancer and cardiovascular disease will
Since 1981 Dr. Simone asserted that proper nutrition, supplements
containing the proper doses, chemical form, and correct ratio of one
nutrient to the other, and other lifestyle factors should be integrated
with effective conventional therapies for patients, especially those
undergoing radiation, chemotherapy, cardiac and other treatments.
Dr. Simone was compelled to develop and manufacture these special nutritional
formulae. Lifestyle modification improves health and outcome.
Breast and Prostate Health
The majority of his clinical practice since 1980 consists of patients
with breast cancer, benign breast disease, and those who want to prevent
both. Dr. Simone's comprehensive approach to obtain optimum breast
health is shared in his book, The Truth About Breast Health and Breast Cancer, Prescription for Healing.
And Dr. Simone explores his Plan for prostate health in his book,
The Truth About Prostate Health and Prostate Cancer, Prevention and Cancer Life Extension.
After he wrote Cancer and Nutrition in 1981, Dr. Simone was thrust into
the alternative medicine arena. He searched the major rain forests for
cancer treatments. He helped to shape the early days of the Office of
Alternative Medicine (OAM), National Institutes of Health. At the request
of the OAM, he pursued and received FDA approval to investigate the use of
shark cartilage in advanced cancer patients. He also helped to organize
Departments of Alternative Medicine for other Medical Colleges.
Because of his expertise in treating malnourished dehydrated patients
who experience muscle wasting, he was asked to formulate a nutritional
drink that can prevent dehydration and cramping. In 1990, the formula
was tested and proven successful in the harsh conditions of the North
African desert in Cairo, Egypt. Today, it is successfully used by
World Class, Professional, and amateur athletes, as well as people
in everyday activities.
Access to Supplements Ensured Health Care Fairness
Dr. Simone wrote the language that led to the compromise in the
US Senate and finally the House ensuring that all Americans have
free access to food supplements. He also conceived a health care
reform plan that encourages fairness for all, recipients and employers.
Dr. Simone has appeared on hundreds of television shows
including 60 Minutes, Prime Time Live, etc; thousands of
radio shows, and been written about in thousands of national
and international print media. He is sought for medical and politically related issues.
Charles B. Simone, M.MS, M.D. is one of the few individuals in the
world with formal training in medical oncology, radiation oncology and
immunology, with expertise in nutrition, cancer prevention, and cancer
detection. As one of the first physicians to champion integrative
medicine, Dr Simone combines effective conventional and alternative modalities.
SIMONE PROTECTIVE CANCER INSTITUTE
The Simone Protective Cancer Institute [501 (C) 3 non-profit] was
founded by Charles B. Simone, M.D. in 1980 for the purpose of carrying
on scientific research, conducting public lectures, and educating people,
especially children, concerning prevention, early detection, and treatment
of diseases. Through research and education we expect to profoundly
influence the way diseases are handled in America. Director Ida Billy Spritzer is helping to raise awareness and funds for our Children's Helping Hands for Hope.
