Cancer-busting chemotherapy can cause damage to healthy cells which triggers them to secrete a protein that sustains tumour growth and resistance to further treatment, a study said Sunday.
Researchers in the United States made the "completely unexpected" finding while seeking to explain why cancer cells are so resilient inside the human body when they are easy to kill in the lab
Completely unexpected? So let's see if I get this -- chemotherapy, which is basically a poison and works by killing (you hope) the cancer before it kills you, was never thought to have mutagenic effects?
On what planet are these so-called "medical scientists" living?
So now we have a drug that is allegedly supposed to "treat" the cancer but in fact both promotes cancer growth and appears to confer resistance to further treatment! Isn't that special?
Oh, and if you thought that was bad, it's worse -- HR.5652, passed in the House a few months ago, contains a provision that prohibits punitive damage awards against pharmaceutical companies for FDA-approved treatments. It also caps non-economic damages.
The medical industry is just as incestuous with Washington DC as are the banks, and none of the political candidates, including unfortunately Gary Johnson as Libertarian nominee for President, has come forward to address any of it.
Even when it can -- and in fact might -- kill you.
