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?

ladodger34: theorellior: lewismarktwo: Sounds like someone has some copper free plumbing to sell.

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

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.
/but wait there's more!

GRCooper: I got shot by a copper plated bb 30 years ago. The bb is still inside of me. I'm doomed!

Plenty of women have had BB inside them and turned out ok.
