Scientists cure cancer, but no one takes notice

I know this is really off topic but I want to let more people know about this.

Canadian scientists tested this dichloroacetate (DCA) on human's cells; it killed lung, breast and brain cancer cells and left the healthy cells alone. It was tested on Rats inflicted with severe tumors; their cells shrank when they were fed with water supplemented with DCA. The drug is widely available and the technique is easy to use, why the major drug companies are not involved? Or the Media interested in this find?

In human bodies there is a natural cancer fighting human cell, the mitochondria, but they need to be triggered to be effective. Scientists used to think that these mitochondria cells were damaged and thus ineffective against cancer. So they used to focus on glycolysis, which is less effective in curing cancer and more wasteful. The drug manufacturers focused on this glycolysis method to fight cancer. This DCA on the other hand doesn't rely on glycolysis instead on mitochondria; it triggers the mitochondria which in turn fights the cancer cells.

The side effect of this is it also reactivates a process called apoptosis. You see, mitochondria contain an all-too-important self-destruct button that can't be pressed in cancer cells. Without it, tumors grow larger as cells refuse to be extinguished. Fully functioning mitochondria, thanks to DCA, can once again die.

With glycolysis turned off, the body produces less lactic acid, so the bad tissue around cancer cells doesn't break down and seed new tumors.

Pharmaceutical companies are not investing in this research because DCA method cannot be patented, without a patent they can't make money, like they are doing now with their AIDS Patent. Since the pharmaceutical companies won't develop this, the article says other independent laboratories should start producing this drug and do more research to confirm all the above findings and produce drugs. All the groundwork can be done in collaboration with the Universities, who will be glad to assist in such research and can develop an effective drug for curing cancer.


So thats pretty much it, people will die because the pharmacist won't be making moneyz...

A fresh start

First and foremost, I want to thank all my 250 followers for still following this blog after my long period of inactivity of almost 4 months I  really appreciate your support and your comments.
If you were wondering what I was doing all this time the answer is gaming. I played quite a lot of League of Legends and Starcraft 2 since last spring.
Since then I became introduced to the wonderful phenomenon known as the eSports. I've frankly became so addicted to watching live events and player streams that it was consuming almost all of my free time. Thus, I decided to pursue my passion and contribute to the competitive gaming scene by blogging about it. Here you will find almost daily coverage of esporting events and competitions and my toughts on them as both a gamer and an avid fan. There is nothing more to say about it I guess, enjoy your stay!
