Hello, everybody. Welcome to the Global Cancer Symposium 2.0. My name is Nathan Crane. I’m the award-winning director of “Cancer; The Integrative Perspective,” as well as the director of the Health and Healing Club, and you can learn more about that at healthandhealingclub.com. But today, I am really honored and excited to be talking with Dr. Rashid Buttar. What we’re gonna be talking about, what he’s gonna be sharing with us, is really a deeper understanding about why we get cancer and the vital role of the immune system to fight damaged cells. I’m gonna read you Dr. Buttar’s bio. We’re gonna bring him in, and we’re gonna start diving in. I mean, when I found out about the work that he’s doing and has been doing and pioneering, for many years, I knew I had to get them here on the symposium. 

I’m so grateful that he said yes to be here with all of us, because he has so much wisdom, clinical experience. They do a ton of research. They work with thousands of patients, so he really knows what he’s talking about, and you’re gonna learn a lot today. So let me read his bio, and we’ll bring him in.

He trained in general surgery and emergency medicine and served as brigade surgeon and director of emergency medicine, while serving in the US Army. Dr. Buttar is board certified in clinical medical toxicology, preventive medicine, is board eligible in emergency medicine, and has achieved fellowship status in three separate medical societies. He serves as the medical director for the Centers for Advanced Medicine with clinics in California and North Carolina, with planned expansion into more states. And Dr. Buttar has patients from 93 countries, is an international best-selling author and a world-acclaimed speaker with an international reputation in effectively treating cancer and autism.
