Ontario researchers have found a simple cure for cancer, yet major pharmaceutical companies are not interested because they cannot patent and make profit from it.

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 is currently used to treat metabolic disorders, so, there is no concern of side effects or about their long term effects.

So why is it we are allowing people to die from cancer when we could be saving them? Today is my Mother’s birthday, she died of breast cancer  June 2nd, 2004. She was only 67 years young! What a waste of talent and to think, it is because a pharmaceutical company couldn’t make profit from all that chemo drugs, pain killers, morphine, pills, pills, and more pills she was on. She was drugged up beyond reality, she lost her hair, she lost her well being, her lust for life, she lost all functioning, ability to walk and at the end even to eat or talk, then she lost her life. Tell me, all that so someone can drive a Mercedes or two? If we could only value human life the way we did money, possessions and power!

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex… It takes a touch of genius – and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.

The University of Alberta Discovery
March 15, 2007

Dr. Evangelos Michelakis, a professor at the U of A Department of Medicine, has shown that dichloroacetate (DCA) causes regression in several cancers, including lung, breast, and brain tumors.

Until recently, researchers believed that cancer-affected mitochondria are permanently damaged and that this damage is the result, not the cause, of the cancer. But Michelakis, a cardiologist, questioned this belief and began testing DCA, which activates a critical mitochondrial enzyme, as a way to “revive” cancer-affected mitochondria.

The results astounded him.

Michelakis and his colleagues found that:

DCA normalized the mitochondrial function in many cancers, showing that their function was actively suppressed by the cancer but was not permanently damaged by it.

the normalization of mitochondrial function resulted in a significant decrease in tumor growth both in test tubes and in animal models.

DCA, unlike most currently used chemo therapies, did not have any effects on normal, non-cancerous tissues.

“I think DCA can be selective for cancer because it attacks a fundamental process in cancer development that is unique to cancer cells,” Michelakis said. “One of the really exciting things about this compound is that it might be able to treat many different forms of cancer”.

Another encouraging thing about DCA is that, being so small, it is easily absorbed in the body, and, after oral intake, it can reach areas in the body that other drugs cannot, making it possible to treat brain cancers, for example.

Scientists cure cancer, but no one takes notice

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.
