Holy Florking Schnit! Cure For Cancer.... and some other stuff too.

FTA: LA JOLLA, Calif., March 4 (UPI) -- A new type of vaccination could be used to provide instantaneous protection against viruses, bacteria, cancers and virulent toxins, U.S. researchers say.

You want the nutshell version? Chemicals injected into the blood trigger an immune reaction that can be programed. Other chemicals injected into the blood can recognize cancer (or presumably other targets). These other chemicals hook up with antibodies. They then circulate until they get the kill signal from the first chemicals.

Part of the problem with cancer is that our bodies immune system doesn't recognize the cancer as being harmful- or rather, the cancer, being from us, is ignored by our immune system. You could have the second chemical floating round in your blood, hooked up with your antibodies and then, once diagnosised, inject the first chemical which tells the second chemical what its after.

Pretty damn cool stuff.


  1. Most people don't know that you can *mostly* cancer-proof your body through reaaaaaaally high-nutrient eating. I'm talking INSANE amounts of green leafy vegetables, beans, nuts, seeds, fruits... Read "The China Study." Okay, stepping down from my healthy-vegan soapbox now. :)

  2. Actually, I should have said "disease-proof" your body.
