Turn The Radio Up

“I don’t want to give people false hope,” said Dr. Steve Curley, the professor leading the tests, “but this has the potential to treat a wide variety of cancers.”

Modern cancer treatments like radiation and chemotherapy have proven remarkably effective at treating many cancers, especially in combination, but are plagued with toxic side effects. These treatments kill healthy cells as well as cancerous ones.

Kanzius RF therapy is noninvasive, and uses nontoxic radio waves combined with gold or carbon nanoparticles, which have a long history of medical use.

Since the mid-1980s, scientists have been trying to create new medical therapies to take advantage of their tiny size. Nanoparticles made of gold, carbon and other materials can move through the bloodstream and through cell walls, allowing for efficient drug delivery, or to act like a homing devices for research purposes. . .

Curley, who described himself as the "ultimate skeptic," thinks the treatment is only a few years away.

"The best-case scenario is that we would be able to [start] clinical trials within three years,” he said. (Full Story)

I think I would be much more comfortable with this cancer treatment than the current alternatives. Considering how many people develop cancer in their life time, I'm always glad to hear about treatment breakthroughs. For what its worth, I have spoken to a researcher about cancer treatment before. His opinion was that we would eventually have many methods of treatment and depending on your situation you would receive a select combination of them. Sounds plausible to me.
