  • One size does NOT fit all where cancer is concerend.  So I think that is no different than anything else that someone has come up with

  • Not surprising ... I've heard for years that there's a cure for diabetes as well but it's not made to be common knowledge because there's money in sickness, not in health.

  • Zakysmommy...

    As a science major in college, this isn't like other "treatments". Mitochondria exists in everyones cells... apoptosis is a natural part of cell functioning as well (apoptosis: programmed cell death). These are natural, where as cures currently being used are highly unnatural and poisonous. My husband is a cancer survivor so this hits home and is part of why I am attending college to be a professional in this area. This is WAY different than "anything else someone has come up with"

  • This sounds like quackery. As in "Quack Doctors". Sorry ,but there is so much junk on the Internet now that I am finding most of it hard to believe.

  • Sounds like something that should be investigated further but isn't really a cure they can be using right now. They would need more testing that is in either article. There are actually lots of things being tested that seem to be working on different cancers that we don't even know about. You only find out when you get cancer and are put into the program.

  • That's what happens when we consider health a commodity instead of a human right.
