No sarcasm / cruelty intended to the forum question, but asking if cancer has been cured is a very, very, VERY generalized, blanket question.

Unfortunately, the question has some semantic arguments imbued within...what do you mean by cured? what type of cancer? what population of people?


Umm click the link provides and you shall had your answer.

Yes, because this thread has cured my cancer.

In all honesty, I'm pretty sure I've heard of people curing their cancer.


If you don't believe me you can Google or is to much for you to do ? Is it difficult to click the links or do a Google search ?

yes... they're called surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy...

it's harder to treat end stage cancers because the tumour has developed its own arteries and vessels and stuffs...
at the end of the day, cancer cells are basically the same as your other normal cells... they just don't have a growth regulation factor that allows them to commit suicide... or the scientific term is known as apoptosis. Normal cells undergo apoptosis to allow for new cells to replace them...

it's hard to find a drug that specifically targets the cancer cells without damaging normal cells... since they are your own... with the same DNA and structures...

You did't watch the video ? Because the way they cure the person cancer did't use any of that you mention.



'Vice Special Report: Killing Cancer' to Debut on HBO


It will look at a revolutionary medical breakthrough in cancer treatment.

Vice is exploring how HIV, measles and viruses can be used against one of the world's deadliest diseases to save lives.

In Vice Special Report: Killing Cancer, airing exclusively on HBO, Vice goes inside the world's most cutting-edge cancer research labs to follow the pioneering doctors and researchers who are changing the face of modern-day medicine. The exclusive in-depth special also features some of the cancer survivors who have already been saved by this revolutionary medical breakthrough, It debuts Friday, Feb. 27, one week before the series kicks off its third season March 6.
The special specifically explores groundbreaking new treatments to fight leukemia, glioblastoma and multiple myeloma. These therapies include the use of HIV to transform a patient's immune system into a cancer-killing machine, a genetically engineered cold virus injected into a living patient's brain tumor, and millions of doses of measles infused into patients' bloodstreams. Unlike modern treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation, which leave a poisonous trail of collateral damage in their wake, these viruses infect and kill cancer cells without harming healthy tissue.
"So many of us have been devastated by cancer in our families. All of us have been affected by it in some way," notes president of HBO programming Michael Lombardo. "We are proud and excited to have Vice deliver such important news about this major breakthrough in the fight against cancer."
"When I first heard Emily Whitehead's story, I broke down and cried like a baby," says Vice Media founder Shane Smith. "At death's door with aggressive leukemia until undergoing radical 'immunotherapy' that actually used re-engineered HIV cells to attack her cancer [which seemingly cured her] was a story that struck a father of two young girls to his core. My life, like most people's, has been negatively affected by cancer, and the thought of my young children living in an age where this is no longer humanity's No. 1 health fear was simply overpowering. My first thought was 'How soon? How soon can we get these types of therapies to market and helping people?' I couldn't be prouder in bringing this story to the fore and hope that with growing awareness about these types of new and radical therapies that the process is sped up, and we soon see them available to those suffering from this dreaded disease."
A promo for the special and a trailer for season three of the Emmy-winning series Vice will debut before the next edition of Real Time With Bill Maher. It's executive produced by Bill Maher, Shane Smith, Eddy Moretti and BJ Levin, and co-executive produced by Jonah Kaplan.

There has been some encouraging advancements lately so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. There is a huge industry formed around curing cancer but an even bigger one that would like to see it eradicated.

Now this is realism and not "hocus pocus", thank you.


Of course. Unfortunately a lot of people here are still thinking it can be cured. Sadly it cannot, as of yet.

You haven't read the book so why getting all narrow minded about it? the books says exactly what you said (bold statement) and has many recipes with the appropriate balance of nuts, legumes, whole grains and fruits. However, the 3 month green juice is for those who are extremely sick (well, you can do it even if you're not sick but requires a strong will power) and it tells you the recipes, it is not only kale or kale everyday. Protein is in everything! green veggies are the most protein rich (spinach, broccoli, peas) I mentioned kale because it has done wonders in my life so I love it but it is not the only green plant out there for green juices.

Everything has to be done in moderation, you're an idiot if you only drink the same thing everyday without taking vitamins or mixing other veggies for the required energy that we need, so no wonder if that person who drank ONLY carrot juice or kale juice died or had consequences. I never said that you had to drink ONLY kale juice. I linked the book so those interested could read it and find out more about it.

As for that link about the vegan mother who killed her baby, we would have to see what she ate that caused the deficiency in her milk. A baby should start eating other baby foods at 6 months, if you only feed the baby the breastmilk for almost a year of course it's going to cause damages on the baby. So we can't blame all vegans if we don't know her diet and if she was feeding the baby only milk. I have a friend who is vegan and she had the healthiest baby and the baby is vegan too.

Those who want to be vegan should research a lot about the best way to combine foods in order to get all the vitamins. I'm not going to say one day "I want to vegan" and eat only lettuce all day...or kale, in this case. You need to make sure you're eating enough veggies/beans etc if you're eating well throughout the day you're likely to reach the guided daily amount. So, do some research and if you think that what the book says is stupid (about the green juice detox) then don't do it. No one has died because of what that book says.



But claiming that starving yourself of vital nutrients by going on a months-long kale binge will cure cancer is just as stupid and pseudo-scientific as claiming that mercury will cure syphilis and grant immortality.


How funny that you only mention Kale when I also mention other green veggies, although I hardly explained how it works. I have seen personally the difference it makes on people who has done that detox, actually, a friend of mine is doing it and he says that he hasn't felt better in his life until now. He is obese and has lost 15 pounds in a week. He is doing it for health benefits and no, he is not drinking only kale, his book tells him what he has to drink everyday which is a combination of all green veggies/legumes (not at the same time of course).

Hope this clears everything up. You are right in your comments but you misunderstood my comments since I never said that being vegan you only have to drink green juice or that the detox is only kale.

Yes it is a joke, but it's very difficult to stop the spread of information on the internet, so even if the mass media doesn't cover it, the internet would.

Last I read on this was a month ago, think they're working on genetic mutation, part of cell cycle sometimes goes bliming wrong and can't be corrected which then leaves us with rapid mutation of the cells and that's the part they were going to fight. Task being trying to stop that before it becomes cancerous. I'm guessing they're currently looking into random mutation.

I'm not a science person but it might take time before stopping it altogether or predicting when its gonna strike, that make up (imo) a larger part of the cure.

There was already Rick Simpson oil which was known to reduce the growth rate of cancer cells,, I guess this is a non-marijuana related cure

Wrong it actually cost more money to the government to actually not cure cancer. This is because many people end up unable to work because of the cancer so they end up on Medicaid so they government ends up paying. So now if there is a cure it means they can treat you sure it cost money but you don't have all the other problems like end of life care or recovery care and that is only if you live.

Also if the government wanted to make money all they need to do is print it. They don't need to hold cures back to make money that isn't their job their job is to protect society and provide for the common good. You are describing how big business actually behaves example airbag save lives but automakers didn't want to add them because they cost money they were trying to make money.
