Paul Kraus: The Oldest Mesothelioma Survivor in the World

Paul Kraus was diagnosed with mesothelioma in 1997 and the cancer had spread so much that doctors told him to go home and get his affairs in order as he wouldn’t have long to live. In this video from Surviving Mesothelioma in 2013, he explains how he reacted to his initial mesothelioma diagnosis and how he coped with it.

Almost two decades later Kraus is still very much alive and has beaten cancer twice more–prostate cancer and brain cancer. He has written many books about his survival story and has had a quite remarkable life, from a very troubled beginning fleeing Auschwitz with his mother and younger brother to emigrating to Australia in 1948.

Seventy-two-year-old Kraus is now an advocate for cancer survivorship and attributes his health to diet and complementary therapies alongside conventional cancer treatments.

    This article uses the story of Paul to promote “alongside conventional treatments”. However, Paul explains in his book that he did not use any conventional treatments, he did not have radiation, chemotherapy or surgery for his mesothelioma cancer. His survival is due to a complete lifestyle dietary change, positive affirmations, visualization techniques and other techniques, none of which are considered conventional medical treatments today. Credit is not given where and when it it due and therefore it is misleading. Credit is due to our body’s miraculous ability to heal under the correct conditions and body terrain, over which people do have have control. Knowledge is power. If you have meso, learn quick BEFORE you take your decisions! Look into Hippocrates diet, as well as a book called Rainbow Green Life Food Cuisine, Gerson Therapy, and google The Sacred Plant docuseries (first one is free and I think more than enough info to start). P.S. My mom has meso, she fell for chemo, chemo didn’t work, made it way worse.
