Two Cancer Cures Announced the Same Week – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on September 5, 2017

Shunned for decades, immunotherapy has become applied science. Modern medicine is finally delivering real cures, but only on its own terms.

In striking contrasts, a university-based team just announced it has developed a five-dollar treatment that completely abolishes cancer in the same week news headlines hailed the Food & Drug Administration’s approval of a $475,000 immunotherapy treatment for blood cancer (leukemia).

It is called tumor ablation — the injection of ethanol (alcohol) directly into a solid tumor that causes tumor cells to dehydrate and die. It has been successfully demonstrated in pancreatic, parathyroid, liver, adrenal and other tumors. It requires no special equipment and was 100% effective at curing cancers in hamsters in the animal lab. Its only drawback, escape of ethanol into surrounding healthy tissues, has been overcome by making an ethyl cellulose substance that is highly viscous and remains in place rather than spreading to healthy tissues.

Meanwhile, the FDA has approved the first immunotherapy drug for childhood leukemia.  The treatment involves the drug Kymriah and will be confined to cases of unremitting acute lymphoblastic leukemia.  Kymriah, called the first “living drug,” genetically alters immune cells (T-cells) to fight the disease. About 600 patients develop this form of leukemia annually.  It can also be used for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and multiple myeloma.  It mobilizes the body’s own immune system.

I’ve already explained how to mimic this T-cell therapy at a pittance of the cost of Kymriah.  The use of supplemental zinc to restore volume and function to the thymus gland that shrinks with advancing age is an overlooked form of immunotherapy.  Thymus gland extract, available in health shops, is also available.  It would cost less than $100 to purchase zinc and other vitamins to rejuvenate the immune system.

Shunned for decades, immunotherapy has become applied science. Modern medicine is finally delivering real cures, but only on its own terms.
