    How utterly exciting. If it pans out, they have found a cure that cures all ( or most ) cancers.

    That's so cool! And, this looks like it's a medical procedure that can be used to make money. If it doesn't make money the pharmaceutical industry will kill it. And you'll never hear about this again.

    We all need to eat better, nourish our bodies and build our immune systems. That is the building block of being healthy and cutting health care costs in this country, The "we" i refer to is VERY self inclusive.

    That looks really promising. Imagine, a cure for cancer in our own time...

    Cancer is responsible for nearly all the deaths in my family. Never in a million years did I think there could be one cure for so many different types of cancer.

    Exciting times.

    Every man in my family tree over the age of 60 has or has had prostate cancer. I'm 53, so this is good news if true.

    I'm saying if people ate a nourishing diet. They'd get less cancer. Even cancer has to get past your immune system.. Americans eat very unhealthy diets. We rely on anti bacterial hand soap and bottled water. Instead of a healthy immune system.

    I can relate - cancer took my dad.

    I'm middle aged and I never thought I'd see a cure during my life time. Then again, I though the same thing about the Cubs winning the World Series. :lol:

    Miracles can happen...

    involves a laborious procedure, withdrawing up to a quart of blood, then sending it off to a laboratory, genetically modifying cells, then re-introducing that blood back into the patient...

    requires weeks/months for the process per individual, then many more months/years before it takes effect on that individual...

    it is NOT a vaccine nor a pill...

    imagine the waiting list for treatment...

    who goes first?

    it would take a century or more to treat all cancer patients (provided they live long enough for treatment)...

    cost? more than anyone not in the top .1% could afford...

    Like anything, costs will come down over time.

    No doubt, it'll be slow and expensive up-front but this could be the breakthrough we've all been hoping for - a treatment that will cross specific cancers and patients. If that's the case perhaps one day it could become a vaccine or pill.

    You'll make a great guinea pig and hopefully save many lives in the process.

    I'm cool with that, too. ;-)

    I have a feeling this is what Rush is doing. He says it's cutting edge but won't go into detail due to possible media blowback.

    The way I understood it one batch of blood could be used on multiple people.

    If we ever discover a 1 billion dollar per use foolproof cure for all cancers the world will be in serious trouble.

    We should incorporate this into our universal health care programs, if we do have of course.

    I think I'd rather inject myself with cancer, unless I knew the programmer of said bots really well.

    For sure, but it's got its limits. Many cancers are from radiation, poisons, genetics etc.
    and no end of drinking carrot juice is gonna save you.
    Eat well, drink well, exercise, be happy, get plenty of sleep - AND TAKE YOUR
    VACCINES, GET YOUR HEALTH CHECKS AND SEE A DOCTOR IS SOMETHING
    IS WRONG.

    No THis is the only solution .
    The bots don’t attack healthy cells
    They can zap only cancer cells dead
    Cancer is very rapid and mutates
    This is hope
