Was really hoping that most of these comments were an April Fools joke in poor taste!

As said in the article cancer is not one condition or one disease. There is no “one drug cures all’ option for the simple reason that cancers are so different from each other and they don’t behave the same in every person. And yes there are some great success stories, Tamoxifen in ER +ve breast cancer and ATRA in APL (leukaemia) are two that come to mind. But these have come from years of research into how these cancers work and grow.

As for the evidence of THC inhibiting cancer cells. That was a study carried out in a lab on the cells directly. It has not been shown in animal or human models as of yet. So maybe down the line it could be considered but as of now it is far from being a validated treatment for cancer. (Here’s the link to the research http://mct.aacrjournals.org/content/6/11/2921.short)

We pour millions into cancer research. So where is it actually getting us?

    Bryan, there might be no “one drug cures all cancers”, but there is one Mighty Personal Cancer Killer that cures and prevents any cancers, regardless of how different they are from each other – cancers are doomed worldwide, if everybody starts doing the Cancer Killer – just an exercise for a minute a day for prevention and for 2 – 3 minutes a day for the cure. Otherwise people are doomed to continue dying, instead of staying heavenly healthy all the time, all their lives, for the Cancer Killer cures and prevents also any infections, diabetes and strokes, because it enriches our blood with oxygen, that kills any infectious bugs the moment they touch us and prevents every cell of our bodies from becoming a cancer cell.
