Australian scientists believe a seed from a rainforest plant could hold the key to curing cancer.
Researchers say initial tests of the Blushwood tree has found is was effective 70 per cent of the time.
An experimental drug based on the seed was even found to be effective in treating pets with cancer.

'In most cases the single injection treatment caused the loss of viability of cancer cells within four hours, and ultimately destroyed the tumours.'

EBC-46 may be a novel drug, but its target is nothing new. EBC-46 targets a protein called Protein Kinase C (PKC) that, when inhibited, prevents tumor cells from making proteins that help them live. PKC has been targeted by several compounds, with one, PMA getting a phase I clinical trial (safety and efficacy in a limited group of people with cancer).

OP, do yourself a favor and delete the daily mail link and replace it with a more reputable source. You could even just post the white paper and people would be happier.

There's already a cure for cancer but its suppressed so medical industry can score money.... reason why health insurance is being forced on us. No different then the petroleum companies buying out inventions to replace fuel.

We live in a evil world... sorry.

Will this stop?

There would be absolutely no way in hell that a cancer cure could get held under wraps. Those evil pharmecutical corporations are run by REAL people, and lots of them. It would be a certainly large gathering of people without a conscience. As absurd as that is to think about, if there was a massive industry of people without ethics or a conscience, there would be a catastrophic list of horrors being committed by them on a regular basis, but there is not. We hear about the bad things they do, and really any corporation because of whistleblowers. Corporations are much too large not to have them.

Also, it is a massive slap to the face to scientists who have dedicated their lives to finding a cure.

These are all real people just like yourself, not some faceless demon spawn that lurk in the shadows.

There are lots of cures for cancer that are being suppressed. In the US and EU a lot of clinics offering alternative treatment that were treating patients, that that poison called chemo therapy (some of which is proven to encourage cancer to become malignant or far more so) couldn't cure, have been shut down. Some were curing 70% of their patients but were shut down by governments because they were 'unapproved'. I've said it many times already and will say it again, Mussolini would be proud.

Not to mention that 90% of these so called "cancer cures" only work on certain types of cancer (here's a long list of identifiable types http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/types/alphalist ). Now keep in mind for every cancer type every case of cancer will be specific to that patient's body.

So not only do you have hurtles in the effectiveness of treatment, but you must also look at costs, infrastructure, deployment, and overall how much it will actually help patients (which usually is nowhere near as good as current cancer medication or treatment methods).

I wish people would stop acting like one of the world's most complex diseases is easy to treat. Even diseases that have been treated for far longer and are far less complex don't have universal treatment options.

lots of things are under wraps, 911, JFK assassination etc etc. Cures hurt the pharmaceutical industry just like electric cars hurt big oil, wake up man the world isn't a holy honest place

Many things on the internet scare me, but nothing quite as succinctly as those moments when the direct link between ignorance and fear of the unknown is highlighted in red....

Conspiracy.... Why not make me the next conspiracy? I could be Hitler's genetic clone born from an artificial womb created by Leonardo DaVinci and raised by Elvis. Trained by the NSA to uncover the secret that the Russians have had a trade agreement with extraterrestrials for decades now before moving on to become a leader of the democratic party where I'll shut down the government by provoking in-fighting before declaring martial law and finally selling America's children into slavery to pay off our debt to China.

What do you know about cures for cancer beyond random crap you read on the internet?

What do you know about me beyond random crap you read on the internet?

Both conspiracies are equally valid.

Less than 10% of things shown to be effective in the lab are actually effective in humans. Because the human body is far more complex than anything we can make in the lab.
