Copper doesn't cause cancer, but if you control it for cancer patients it might help starve the tumors.

This could be like saying "If you starve yourself, the cancer will die first!"

We can do better than that.

How did Vulcan society live long enough to discover warp drive? Or, did the warp core actually cure his cancer, although in a round-about way?

Seems like an interesting study. It essentially says that monitoring (and limiting) copper intake along with drugs that limit glycosis might kill off cancer cells. If true, it's another tool to fight cancer.

Of course, the homeopathic types are going to latch onto this study and say "copper bad!" and sell you a copper limiting head band or something like that.


Only $19.99 while supplies last.

Well they say it doesn't prevent cancer. If you really wanted to profit off it you could sell those reverse-osmosis systems or an ion exchange setup.
