Cancer

Cancer is a group of diseases involving abnormal cell growth with the potential to invade or spread to other parts of the body. Not all tumors are cancerous; benign tumors do not spread to other parts of the body. While these symptoms may indicate cancer, they may have other causes. Over 100 types of cancers affect humans.

This video is amazing!! It reveals the truth behind the Cancer industry and how there ARE alternative treatments to actually CURING cancer, as well as exposing how the pharmaceutical company is holding natural cures and remedies to various types and stages of cancer at bay because there is no money to be had with alternative treatment. Knowledge is power. The more you research, the more you know.

This is incredible. This macrobiotic diet is most likely better for cancer patients than the chemotherapy was from the very start--chemotherapy actually injects cancerous cells into them to fight off the "bad" ones, but there is no guarantee that the injected ones will do what they're supposed to. Cancer cells are wild and uncontrollable, which is what makes the disease so powerful. However, with discoveries such as these, I know we're on our way to finding the cure.

This is a video representation on how nanoparticles can be used to advance cancer therapy. The medicine inside the nanoparticles are released directly to the tumor, which highly contrasts the commonly used chemotherapy where it is distributed throughout the whole body. This means less medication will be needed which leads to less side effects.

One of the research projects conducted by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) is cancer. Physicists, biologists, and engineers are using what they learned from particle accelerators to come up with a more effective cancer treatment.
