Why Havent We Found The Cure To Cancer? Is It Being Hidden?

Postby Yanisin » Fri Oct 06, 2017 1:31 pm

i always see these sparks of hope where a rare protien or a rare tree has been found in nature that can kill all cancer cells.
but none of these are ever put into efffect and are put away on the shelf.. i gotta ask, is it just the drug companies hiding it because they get so much money fro cancer research donations? http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queen... http://www.physorg.com/news170661506.htm...

Why Havent We Found The Cure To Cancer? Is It Being Hidden?

The main problem with carcinogenic tumors is the form alters, and although universities are investigating with the use of different antigens (using the lock &key hypothesize), these can be difficult to identify. Alot of money goes into manipulating substances, find out which one is which and identifying the 'key to go into the lock'. As u already no Chemotherapy kills hyperactive mitosis within the body but there are lots of locations, therefore, alot of damage can come from this. So lots of money, time and research has to be done otherwise this endeavor would be useless.

(btw i am not within a university so i only have limited knowledge, i have only Just finished my GCSEs - thou i hope this helps )

First, note the date on the two reports you link to - 2010. Then note, way down each of these reports, comments from the scientists involved:

''To discover this is one thing. To turn it into a medicine is a whole other thing entirely,''

'"immoral, illegal, and unscientific" to seek to be administered the drug before approval, likely to take up to seven years'

They are possible cancer treatments, it is only being suggested that they MAY be effective against a very few types of cancer, and if they show promise it will be years before they are marketed - you wouldn't want to be administered a medicine that a) hadn't been proven to work and b) hadn't been proven to be safe, would you?

The problem with finding a 'cure for cancer' is that cancer is hundreds of diseases, not just one. The difficulty is that different cancers are caused by different things, so no one strategy can prevent them all, and different cancers respond to different treatments so no one treatment can cure them all.


There will never be a Eureka! moment when a single substance or procedure is found that will cure all cancers.

There's no guaranteed cure for any type of cancer, but cancer is cured all the time on an individual basis. 70% of children with cancer are cured. Testicular cancer, Hodgkin's disease, and many cases of leukaemia can all be cured in adults with chemotherapy, most skin cancers are cured with surgery, and many cases of thyroid cancer and cancer of the larynx are cured with radiotherapy.

Many other types of cancer are also cured if they are found early enough. Nobody would pretend there isn't a long, long way to go, but the idea that a secret cure is being hidden for reasons of profit doesn't hold water. Think about it... who's hiding it?

Drug companies? I don't think it would be bursting anyone's bubble to hear that drug companies are in it for the money - so why would they be keeping quiet about this cure even though it would bring them fame and fortune? Any drug company discovering a cure would make far more money than they can have dreamed of making up till now.

Doctors, scientists, researchers etc? They'd be watching their relatives die and dying themselves (they and their families develop cancer at the same rate as the rest of the population) rather than revealing the secret cure. And every medical professional in the whole world would have agreed to keep existence of a cure secret. Every single one. One blabbermouth, one disgruntled researcher or sacked nurse and the whole conspiracy?s blown.


Governments? It would have to be a world wide conspiracy, involving every government in the world. I live in the UK; we don't pay for our medical treatment, including cancer treatment. Cancer treatment costs our government untold billions - no fortunes being made there. Yet we have the same treatments as the rest of the world - no miracle cure has been revealed in order to save money.

But the clearest argument against a hidden cure is this:

If there were a hidden cure, thousands of people would have to have been cured by it (otherwise how would they know it worked?). All those people would be keeping quiet about it. Why? They can't ALL be so unprincipled that they'd be bought off and watch others die from an illness they knew could be cured. And they can't have been killed off - to prove the cure worked, they'd have to live out their lives till old age without recurrence...

The secret cancer cure conspiracy theory gets sillier and sillier the more you think about it, doesn't it?

Poor nutrition is probably the origin of many thyroid problems (including low thyroid), and rich nutrition is vital to reversing them, or at least to prevent further decline. Learn here https://tr.im/2rUcg

Healthy thyroid function depends on a range of nutrients, especially selenium, folic acid, and iodine. Since most people cannot optimize levels of these nutrients through diet alone, a medical?grade supplement is vital. Of course, supplements should be used to complement, not substitute, for a balanced diet.

Stress in all it?s forms is another key culprit of thyroid dysfunction. Most of us experience a high degree of the most damaging kind ? unremitting stress. It is important for hypothyroid treatment to identify the stressors you face and learn techniques and activities that can help you reduce your stress.

The cure of cancer exists since a long time. The little pharma gnomes from Zurich have hidden it in a buddhist monastery deep in the Himalayas. But a daring monk escaped and brought with him: antibiotics, insulin, vaccines against polio and a bunch of child diseases. However the cancer formula was stolen from him in Tibet. So....

But seriously now : there is no such thing as cancer. There are tens of different neoplastic diseases all affecting cell mitosis.

So we have to find a cure for each of them . An believe me : progress is being made. Look up stats for for ex. Hodgkin's disease: Compare the prognosis now and 50 years ago.

I beleive there is a cure for most types of cancer out there but the agencies that enable these drugs tobe used (FDA) will charge astronomical prices to allow trials to occur and thus the cure for cancer may never be in use because of big pharm companies refusal to fund the drug.
An example is dichloroacetic acid, or DCA.
The FDA wants a billion dollars to allow this drug to be patented but pharm companies will not pay that because it is a common chemical available through any chemical compound manufacturer cheaply and because of this the patent wont last for too long and it would not be profitable but it has shown that it works for several types of cancers (all that it has been used on),,,, but it looks like greed and business always outweigh altruism and truth in this country the US.
Thank god for canada though, its in clinical trials up there.

Now you're entering into conspiracy theory territory.
Firstly cancer and treatment is way more complicated than you make out, there are many different types of cancers, and I can assure you drug companies would make much more money on cures then they would from research donations.

A surprisingly balanced report from the Courier Fail though.

Drug company bosses die of cancer and so do their families.

It'd be one heck of a secret if you'd willingly let family members die and let yourself die just to keep it 'hush hush'.

Completely unbelievable to any rational person.

The cure for cancer is in the 62 yr cancer study in the J Nat med *** , 2001 by the genius scientist Kenneth Seaton "Albumin Concentration Controls cancer" thaat proves serum albumin over 4.7% prevents the DNA from continuous mutation, especially at P53 anti cancer gene network. Albumin concentration is a measure of inflammation and stress not the amount of protein in the diet. Full study with proof available by email and questions welcome.
