Scientists Cure Cancer But No One Takes Notice...

Canadian researchers find a simple cure for cancer, but major pharmaceutical companies are not interested. 

Researchers at the University of Alberta, in Edmonton, Canada have cured cancer last week, yet there is a little ripple in the news or in TV. It is a simple technique using very basic drug. The method employs dichloroacetate, which is currently used to treat metabolic disorders. So, there is no concern of side effects or about their long term effects. 

This drug doesn't require a patent, so anyone can employ it widely and cheaply compared to the costly cancer drugs produced by major pharmaceutical companies. 

Canadian scientists tested this dichloroacetate (DCA) on human's cells; it killed lung, breast and brain cancer cells and left the healthy cells alone. It was tested on Rats inflicted with severe tumors; their cells shrank when they were fed with water supplemented with DCA. The drug is widely available and the technique is easy to use, why the major drug companies are not involved? Or the Media interested in this find?

In human bodies there is a natural cancer fighting human cell, the mitochondria, but they need to be triggered to be effective. Scientists used to think that these mitochondria cells were damaged and thus ineffective against cancer. So they used to focus on glycolysis, which is less effective in curing cancer and more wasteful. The drug manufacturers focused on this glycolysis method to fight cancer. This DCA on the other hand doesn't rely on glycolysis instead on mitochondria; it triggers the mitochondria which in turn fights the cancer cells.

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.

Pharmaceutical companies are not investing in this research because DCA method cannot be patented, without a patent they can't make money, like they are doing now with their AIDS Patent. Since the pharmaceutical companies won't develop this, the article says other independent laboratories should start producing this drug and do more research to confirm all the above findings and produce drugs. All the groundwork can be done in collaboration with the Universities, who will be glad to assist in such research and can develop an effective drug for curing cancer.

You can access the original research for this cancer here.

This article wants to raise awareness for this study, hope some independent companies and small startup will pick up this idea and produce these drugs, because the big companies won't touch it for a long time.
Now I hate to be the one to call conspiracy theory, and throw all these things out there but... It really does make sense that the big pharmaceutical companies won't pick up a cheap cure, when their making big money off of costly treatments. Not that I'm saying its good or smart, but I can see the correlation and reason for being corrupt. But I have a hard time believing the world really really works like this. I still do, and kind of always will. I refuse to believe their is really that much greed and evil in this world for people to really not jump on such a cure if it really exists... maybe I'm naive but, I have faith in humanity I guess.

first off lemme just say that this is THE only post you've put on your blog worth reading in a long time....

Second, you really believe in humanity? that greed doesnt exist? you really do read to deeply into those cartoons you watch/read about huh? In this world, man's main objective is to look out for themselves.....even if they can, that is to say they are able to afford their means of survival, greed will creep into one's mind which will make someone want to accumulate more.........

look at you and your company for instance.....say you really do become majorly successful and make A LOT more $$$ then you are now......would you one day stop and say "i've acquired enough" ? my point being that even if you made enough $$$ to comfortably live out the rest of your life, you'd still want to acquire more......I mean after all, why stop something thats successful right?

I won't even address your first comment because it was simply mean spirited and pointless except to insult but that's whatever...

Some people build to create not necessarily only for profit. If your creation is successful beyond your expectations, well that is a bonus. Stop being so cynical. You CAN simultaneously believe in humanity and also acknowledge that greed exists. Some people donate huge portions of their (hefty)incomes to good causes. http://abcnews.go.com/WN/bill-gates-warren-buffett-organize-billionaire-giving-pledge/story?id=11325984#.Tv4ioDUS29U

Greed exists. So do altruistic people who live only for the benefit of others and then there are the ones in between. The rest of humanity. Life is a balancing act. Some people handle it well, others not so much. But I still believe.
