    EDITORS NOTE:

    Since the original publication of this article we have been inundated with responses from the public at all walks of life. It is important to note that research is ongoing with DCA, and not everyone is convinced it will turn out to be a miracle drug. There have been many therapies that were promising in vitro and in animal models that did not work for one reason or another in humans. To provide false hope is not our intention. There is a lot of information on DCA available on the web, and this column is but one opinion on the topic. We hope you will do your own research into the situation. So, we have added links to resources at the end of this column. If you are arriving here form a linking website like Fark, then those links will not appear because they tend to grab only the text.

    END NOTE

    Scientists may have cured cancer last week.

    Yep.

    So, why haven't the media picked up on it?

    Here's the deal. Researchers at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada found a cheap and easy to produce drug that kills almost all cancers. The drug is dichloroacetate, and since it is already used to treat metabolic disorders, we know it should be no problem to use it for other purposes.

    Doesn't this sound like the kind of news you see on the front page of every paper?

    The drug also has no patent, which means it could be produced for bargain basement prices in comparison to what drug companies research and develop.

    Scientists tested DCA on human cells cultured outside the body where it killed lung, breast and brain cancer cells, but left healthy cells alone. Rats plump with tumors shrank when they were fed water supplemented with DCA.

    Again, this seems like it should be at the top of the nightly news, right?

    Cancer cells don't use the little power stations found in most human cells - the mitochondria. Instead, they use glycolysis, which is less effective and more wasteful.

    Doctors have long believed the reason for this is because the mitochondria were damaged somehow. But, it turns out the mitochondria were just dormant, and DCA starts them back up again.

    The side effect of this is it also reactivates 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.

    Here's the big catch. Pharmaceutical companies probably won't invest in research into DCA because they won't profit from it. It's easy to make, unpatented and could be added to drinking water. Imagine, Gatorade with cancer control.

    So, the groundwork will have to be done at universities and independently funded laboratories. But, how are they supposed to drum up support if the media aren't even talking about it?

    All I can do is write this and hope Google News picks it up. In the meantime, tell everyone you know and do your own research.

    Well try a google search of Larry Pease. He's my wifes uncle. He is the head of genetics at the Mayo Clinic in MN. He has a cure for cancer that he has been testing for over 4 years. Still a few years from market, but trust me, it will be incredible. Works for darn near everything not central nervous system related. Just wait. HIV, cancer all sorts of diseases.

    I heard about this. Not surprising...they can't get rich with it so they don't want it. Nobody cares about humanity..only their wallet.

    Well its more than just a wallet, although that does play a role. Its the employment of 10's of thousands of people. Its about credit for it. And its about long term potential side effects that nobody knows about. I know dying from cancer seems like a terrible thing, but what if we're opening a pandora's box, where chromosomes are affected and reproduction changes the species?
    Just a note that its NOT all about money.

    Re: Cure for Cancer

    Here's an interesting idea......

    We should ALL take this material and send/fax it to every channel of news they have in their city..... Then see what happens..... Sometimes things like this just need a little helping hand...

    Re: Cure for Cancer

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I think I'll just grab some and give it to my granny who needs it. The problem with research is that it is paid simply based on activity, not results. That is why diseases aren't cured, because the money stops.

    As for wondering about long term effects of cancer treatments, if you die from the cancer then what long term effects can there be?

    Re: Cure for Cancer

    I haven't had the time to look that much into this really.....

    I would be curious to see the actual paperwork on this "drug". The actual case studies and such.
