    I was reading about that yesterday. It is quite something. Finally maybe some outright noninvasive cures for some cancers are in the offing.

    The study also highlights the importance of taking creative approaches to problems instead of trying to incrementally tweak traditional "tried-and-true" treatment regimens.

    The amazing thing is the cancer cells pretty much all died at once! That by itself was a burden to the body but he survived, having to scavenge all those dead cells.

    Very interesting indeed. I've heard about the idea before, but I had never heard of anyone who had come close to making it work. And if there's one type of cancer where this is good news, it's leukemia.

    Either the writer or a close family member has (or had) cancer, so the writer keeps up on news regarding cancer. There have been several strips on the topic.

    Waste of time.

    Waste of resources.

    Waste of money.

    Because we all know cancer is self created by ignorant persons who do no live well.

    That is one of the most heartless statements I have heard in a long time. You are downright rude and I for one don't like to see that kind of statement in the science forum.

    If you want to make statements like that, then come up with some backing research results.

    Environment issues certainly causes cancer but not all cancers. I can assure you cancer has been a part of humanity since the first humans and before that with primates and most other life forms.

    It was thought the only life form to not get cancer was some species of shark. But it has been shown they get cancer too, not to the extent as humans but it happens so lets see some justification for your cruel statement.

    I am beginning to think your religion has clouded your judgement on everyday life to a point where IMHO you need psychological counseling.

    Take a read on this site, maybe you will get a different view, but I doubt it.

    http://www.cancer.org/Cancer/CancerBasics/TheHistoryofCancer/the-history-of-cancer-cancer-causes-theories-throughout-history

    And this about vegans and cancer:

    http://www.peta.org/issues/animals-used-for-food/cancer.aspx

    it shows cancer rates half of that of meat eaters. Please note, that is not zero.

    You can be the best vegan in the world who lives the life of vedic knowledge and still get cancer. Less than meat eaters but still get cancer.

    Wake up.

    Cancer is not the problem.

    You have been told.

    Cancer is the symptom.

    True religion cure the cause.

    Cancer research is a band-aid solution.

    So cure cancer then. make people feel better. Oh I forgot, they will feel SO much better in their next life when they die an agonizing death in this one. Sure, that's the ticket, poor sod gets cancer, is in extreme pain for 4 years, chemo only partly helps, he has to start smoking marijuana to be able to eat. And then he hears your words, gets convinced and BOING, no more cancer.

    What a load of horse pucky.

    Listen to my words.

    Digest them.

    Contemplate them with honesty.

    And wake up.

    Cancer is the symptom of something much larger.

    The larger thing is a life lived in ignorance.

    Ignorance will have the person live without spirituality.

    Living without spirituality will have the person live badly by abusing his mind and body and will have him believe in falsity.

    All this this will cause cancer, but even if someone lives a healthy life they may still get cancer because of past karma.

    Karma may be instant or often it comes along much later.

    Karma is the results of all the deeds done, words spoken and thoughts thought.

    To have good karma one must live the spiritual life which is the only life to live for human beings.

    Life without spirituality is animal living.

    Animals are only concerned in eating something, having sex with something, defending their territory, and sleeping.

    Living without spirituality is living like the animals and this will cause cancer.

    So stop trying to invent a pill to stop cancer and educate the people to live properly and to think properly.

    Inventing a pill to stop cancer is trying to avoid the real medicine of changing the ways of the people to live spiritually instead of living like the animals.
