Cancer cells programmed back to normal by US scientists
Scientists have turned cancerous cells back to normal by switching back on the process which stops normal cells from replicating too quickly

Cancer cells have been programmed back to normal by scientists in a breakthrough which could lead to new treatments and even reverse tumour growth.

For the first time aggressive breast, lung and bladder cancer cells have been turned back into harmless benign cells by restoring the function which prevents them from multiplying excessively and forming dangerous growths.

Scientists at the Mayo Clinic in Florida, US, said it was like applying the brakes to a speeding car.

So far it has only been tested on human cells in the lab, but the researchers are hopeful that the technique could one day be used to target tumours so that cancer could be ‘switched off’ without the need for harsh chemotherapy or surgery.

That's good news if the people making billions off this disease would actually use the knowledge, but my hopes are low. Have you noticed how they chemo people half to death and cure the cancer only to have another type occur within a couple of years? Happened to my neighbor. I've read that the chemo itself causes cancer.

OK, Mom...another paragraph!

I have more fear of the cancer treatments than cancer itself and I certainly would not choose the traditional treatment were I to discover that cancer had invaded my system,

Not only that, but there was just research that recently came out that the actual DIAGNOSIS can kill you faster than the cancer or the treatments. This was being talked about elsewhere but I can't find it now.

Ah. Here it is, check it out:

A cancer diagnosis may be the most traumatic thing that can befall a patient within the contemporary medical system; that is, beyond the conventional cancer treatments themselves, many of which have life-threatening and even lethal side effects.

New research now indicates that a cancer diagnosis may be as fatal as the cancer itself, dramatically increasing the risk of suicide and heart-related death in the week following diagnosis.
