''' great '''

I count this as Cancer-treatment/breakthrough-(announcement) # 1785 (blazoned forth in this millennium) -- and how much was/is really achieved by all those '''breakthrough'''s and (promising)(maybe)'cures' ?

And i, for one, am getting very tired of all the reports/propaganda-blurbs announcing (possible promising) ''breakthrough'' - *treatments*

while the cancer-pandemic keeps spreading, where (currently, approx.) every other [US or EU citizen; one out of two] will be diagnosed with cancer ...

while on the other hand cancer is reported be be mostly (or even ''purely'') man-made:
Proof that Cancer is a Man-Made Disease
man-made "purely" cancer
CANCER recently was reported to be "purely man-made", see
see also:

and while the man-made causes for cancer are still being increased rather that reduced, let alone abolioshed ?

it was us, humans, and only us, who have turned Earth into Cancer Planet

CANCER-EPIDEMIC: " We are now [that was 2003; it's certainly no better, near-certainly worse now] in the midst of a major cancer epidemic and I have no doubt and I have documented the basis for this, that industry is largely responsible for this overwhelming epidemic of cancer, in which one in every two men get cancer in their lifetimes, and 1 in every 3 women get cancer in their lifetimes. " -- Samuel Epstein M.D. in "The Corporation" (2003)

I avoid nano in products so I would still opt for holistic alternatives.

Interesting what can be done today. Can this treatment harm other cells?

David C., I can understand your cynicism, but remember that Thomas Edison supposedly tested around 3000 different materials for light bulb filaments. I am confident that we will find the "magic bullet" to conquer cancer. Maybe I'm over-confident, but nothing wrong with a wee bit of optimism.

It has been known for many years though the money hungry doctors and the pharmaceutical companies have tried to keep it hidden. Many health books, doctors and recovered cancer patients have testified, "Eat Almonds." There are many testimonials of how people have recovered from cancer and been able to not get cancer by eating almonds.

Search -- almonds......cancer

Here's top part of one article and there are many more such articles available on the internet.

How almonds can help prevent cancer

A form of vitamin may be obtained from certain nuts as the almond that would be helpful as a preventive. A person who eats two or three almonds each day need never fear cancer. - Edgar Cayce

There are many other articles available on the internet. Is it worth checking out? If you have or don't want to have cancer, to me it would be worth it.

Almonds are also recommended to keep the heart healthy.

I eat about 5 almonds a day.

At on of my annual doctor checkups (always WOW!!!) I told my doctor that I eat almonds to keep cancer away. Doctor told me of a movie star (forgot his name) who went to Mexico to get the cure. They fed him almonds. He got well. Doctor told me to keep eating my almonds.

I really don't think the pharmaceutical companies need those millions of extra dollars wasted on cures that don't work.
