Cheap, Safe Drug Kills Most Cancers


It sounds almost too good to be true: a cheap and simple drug that kills almost all cancers by switching off their “immortality”. The drug, dichloroacetate (DCA), has already been used for years to treat rare metabolic disorders and so is known to be relatively safe.

If this works then it could change the future of mankind. Now, if the university can only find funding to continue their research. Turns out the drug, dichloroacetate can’t be pantented. Umm, will someone out there stop thinking with their wallets and think about their fellow humans? If you want to make a donation follow this link. You can also keep up with the latest research efforts there.
