    Scientists find cure for cancer, but no one takes notice.....

    Canadian researchers have found a simple cure for cancer, but major pharmaceutical companies are not interested. Researchers at the University of Alberta, in Edmonton, Canada have cured cancer, yet there is little ripple in the news or on TV.

    It is a simple technique using a very basic drug. The method employs dichloroacetate, which is currently used to treat metabolic disorders. So, there is no concern of side effects or any other major unwanted long term effects. This drug doesn't require a patent, so anyone can employ it widely and cheaply compared to the costly cancer drugs produced by major pharmaceutical companies.

    Canadian scientists tested this dichloroacetate (DCA) on human's cells; it killed lung, breast and brain cancer cells and left the healthy cells alone. It was tested on Rats inflicted with severe tumors; the cancerous cells shrank when they were fed with water supplemented with DCA. The drug is widely available and the technique is easy to use. Why are the major drug companies not involved? Or the Media interested in this find?

    In human bodies there is a natural cancer fighting organelle, the mitochondria, but they need to be triggered to be effective. Scientists used to think that these mitochondria were damaged and thus ineffective against cancer. So they used to focus on glycolysis, which is less effective in curing cancer and more wasteful. Drug manufacturers focused on this glycolysis method to fight cancer. The DCA method on the other hand doesn't rely on glycolysis but instead on mitochondria; it triggers the mitochondria which in turn fight the cancer cells.

    It activates a process called apoptosis. You see, mitochondria contain an all-too-important self-destruct button that can't be pressed in cancer cells. Without it, tumors grow larger as cells refuse to be extinguished. Fully functioning mitochondria, thanks to DCA, can once again die. With glycolysis turned off, the body produces less lactic acid, so the bad tissue around cancer cells doesn't break down and seed new tumors.

    Pharmaceutical companies are not investing in this research because the DCA method cannot be patented, without a patent they can't make money, like they are doing now. Since the pharmaceutical companies won't develop this, the best hope for this treatment being further pursued is via independent laboratories in collaboration with universities. However, this is only likely to be possible if the issue receives greater public attention.

    In a recent paper from the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), it has been reported that cases of people with cancer will surge and increase by more than 75 percent by the year 2030.

    Well, this is familiar.

    Iirc, it wasn't all that effective when further trials were done and had significant side effects.

    Probably relevant here too: http://worldwide.espacenet.com/publi...E&locale=en_EP

    Of course, the big corps dont wanna lose profit from the cancer "treatments" they put people through, there are many examples of ignored/suppressed technology/medicine etc.

    This same exact conspiracy thread has popped up on MMO-C just about every 2-3 months.

    It's a bunch of BS. Ya know, scientifically speaking.

    Rather impressive. Not surprised that no one notices.

    But really, I'm surprised a cure was released. There's so much money being donated for this research. /tinfoil hat

    Is this not the third MMO-C thread about this that has popped up over the last two years?

    It seem to come back periodically.

    Same tin-foil hat hypothesis every time.

    Here's one: http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...e-Takes-Notice
    And this might be another (can't be bothered to read): http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...ry-needs-heard

    Old news. Like 1 year ago there was thread about medicine which cures some kind of cancer of the blood

    The DCA zombie arises again

    This crap is five years old, folks. Please don't fall for the conspiratorial nonsense.

    As mentioned, this is old news that has been linked here many times. Since it's borderline conspiracy, there's no point in discussing here.
