  1. An interesting read from NEWSCIENTIST.COM.

    A cheap and simple drug that kills almost all cancers by switching off their “immortality”. The drug, dichloroacetate (DCA), has already been used for years to treat rare metabolic disorders but not tested in humans for treating cancer.

    It also has no patent, meaning it could be manufactured for a fraction of the cost of newly developed drugs.

    Can't get our hopes up, but hopefully this is a step in the right direction.
  2. Yeah, but peroxide kills cancers too, and its cheap as chips.

    Not to mention the other topical or intravenous applications, but does it occur to anyone the worthless fools in charge of various research endeavours, might, just maybe, have a vested interest ??
  3. Wow. I hope it works.

    I vaguely recall reading that diet has some relationship to cancer growth. If cancer cells are powered by glycolosis it could explain part of the dietary link.
  4. Cheap, simple, effective.

    The health care industry will not like that.

    Something like promising clinical trials would suddenly be stopped for safety reasons by the drug companies via the FDA.
