Yes 2013 will be the beginning of the good things to come. Strong and worrisome reports have surfaced that Chemo treatments actually does not cure cancer. It will activate our good cells to excrete a protein called WNT16B to feed the cancerous cells. Chemo kills both normal cells and cancerous cells indiscriminately, but after a time chemo is no longer effective. Protein WNT16B sustains tumur growth and resistance to further treatment. This finding and report is by the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and published in Nature Medicine.
Chemo which is the standard mother killer of cancerous cells is no more. This finding was completely unexpected, BUT it is the most important finding in the century. For now we know why Chemo is only effective for short periods, some as short as 4 months extended lifespan.
Now we know and now we can fix the problem. Medical science is very advance , particularly in genetic and epigenetic research. There is hope that Chemo will actually work in the near future. Scientist are franticly finding effective antibodies to make chemo effective again.
But for now Chemo is the only preferred medical treatment for Stage 4 cancer patients. It may be a temporary solution that Chemo Dosage needs to to be lowered and administered within a shorter break for recovery period.
The best complementary treatment is to improve our own body immune system with good diet, nutrition, supplements and plenty of exercises.
Google WNT16B for full reports on this findings. For all of us, this is a blessing in disguise.
Happy New Year 2013
