This looks like it might be a big deal soon, keep an eye on it![/quote]
Evangelos Michelakis of the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, and his colleagues tested DCA on human cells cultured outside the body and found that it killed lung, breast and brain cancer cells, but not healthy cells. Tumours in rats deliberately infected with human cancer also shrank drastically when they were fed DCA-laced water for several weeks.
Lung cancer is by-and-large preventable (don’t smoke) and brain cancer is rare. There are still many other cancers that this doesn’t address (Prostate anyone?). Let alone the fact that it didn’t obliterate the tumors in mice. Not to shoot down their work, but if you ‘kept your eye’ on every drug that had promise, you’d go blind (or broke if you were putting money on it).
IMO, the “silver bullet” for cancer would be like penis enlargement drugs or “the pill”. If a cheap, freely available, grossly effective drug comes along, you won’t need a lab jockey who used it on mice to prove it works. Every man and woman in the free world would know about it.
