If it killed cancer it wouldn't just prolong their lives.

Good marketing angle, though. I'm sure people dying of cancer will be rushing to mortgage their houses. Think of the profits!

As long as you use a lot of ice and a serum from an immune host you should be good.

Actually, reading it again, it seems they might have just given one dose to the subjects, saw that it was very effective, then never gave them any more, and watched them die.

If continued usage of it is required, it's still just a treatment they'll milk people for, instead of a one time deal.

Well, since thousands of your cells turn rogue every day, I see this as a fair continued usage. I mean, why do those assholes make people take heart medications every day when it's clear you can just take one pill and be cured of hypertension? Clearly a scheme by Big Pharma.

In short, shut up.

I was puzzled by the reference to it as a vaccine.  It's clearly not a preventative shot, more like a treatment for an existing cancer.

Fano: Well, since thousands of your cells turn rogue every day


Yeah, i was preaching that years ago here. There's cancer cells in all our bodies right now, and all that. Probably where you got it.

The other half of that knowledge, which you seem to have forgotten, is if your immune system is working fine, it can handle irregular cells with ease, and does so frequently. No need for medicine at all. It only becomes a problem when your immune system is suppressed or weakened significantly so it can't defend against them, and the cells begin to build up into tumors.

Some people would say the immune system is still capable of killing tumors on its own with proper lifestyle changes, but you, you should definitely get radiation and chemo. I insist on it.

Wow, you just doubled down on retard. Why have oncologists when you can just eat right and get exercise. Why, what else do you need? Are you selling some nutritional supplements? Because I would buy them from you if you had access to some good ones.

Rise up this mornin',
Smiled with the risin' sun,
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin' sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true,
Sayin', "This is my message to you-ou-ou:"

Singin': "Don't worry about a thing, worry about a thing, oh!
Every little thing gonna be all right. Don't worry!"
Singin': "Don't worry about a thing" - I won't worry!
"'Cause every little thing gonna be all right."

Singin': "Don't worry about a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right" - I won't worry!

Didn't mention anything about exercise or supplements. I hear inhaling dioxins bolsters the immune system. You should try it.

And i have to say i'm flattered at your obsession with me, and the arbitrary abuse you've sent my way over such a long time period. I wouldn't be surprised if you called me retarded when i first told you what you just repeated part of. Mental case.

I will post the caveat, "someday". Of course eating well and exercising are good for you, and rewarding as well. But saying that you don't need anything else in the fight against cancer is folly. I just mean they aren't enough, and I couldn't tell a cancer victim it's because they didn't eat perfectly and have just the right workout program. And also fark medicine for having a treatment that isn't one pill that protects you forever against abnormal cell division.

What you definitely don't need is radiation and chemo, that much is certain. Radiation causes cancer, and studies are now showing chemo makes many cancers stronger. Even if those 'cures' manage to destroy the tumors they also damage everything else, like your immune system, and leave you with an extremely high chance to get cancer again because they are themselves highly carcinogenic.

What i was trying to get at earlier is mainly just that drug companies have no interest in cures because they don't make as much money as treatments, and that's what this sounds a bit like. Any potential cures they find are buried under years of tests while other dubious drugs are rushed to market and later found to be very dangerous.

Yeah, screw the win against polio, everyone was against that.

Keep in mind researchers and even the business guys suffer from cancer. Their loved ones do too. Are you saying that all of them are in on this conspiracy? Cancer is a difficult problem caused by normal biological processes. The idea we COULD cure cancer but don't is retard talk. What was Steve Jobs paid to keep up the act?

For all I know it could be. I've never seen the whole movie. The only reason I think it's from the original is that I pulled it from a site reviewing it.
