Researchers at Northwestern University found that our cells can kill themselves Currently, this is triggered by disease itself or the artificial use of chemotherapy Now, experts believe the ‘kill codes’ could be synthetically duplicated for use Every cell in the human body contains a ‘kill code’ which can be triggered to cause its own self-destruction.

The end of chemotherapy? Scientists discover all cancerous cells have a KILL CODE that can be triggered without the gruelling treatment
According to a new study published in the American Journal of Medicine, 42% of new cancer patients lose their entire life savings in two years because of treatment. The same study found that 62% of cancer patients are in debt because of their treatment.
Have you ever wondered where all the money goes that you donate to the American Cancer Society ?With the advancement of medicine, you’d think scientists would have unlocked the cure by now with the ACS’s help. Right?. Is there more to this story than meets the eye?Apparently, the American Cancer Society seems to like the […]
Immunotherapy Holds Big Promise for Beating Cancer CRISPR is by all accounts a fascinating technology. Its headline feature is that it can literally be used to slice, dice, and otherwise manipulate the body’s genetic code—functions that could carry staggering implications for treating everything from inherited disorders to cancer to HIV/AIDS one day. Now, new (though […]
Flight attendants are exposed to a number of known cancer-causing risks, but few studies have rigorously quantified that risk, and researchers say they are an understudied occupational group. The Harvard Flight Attendant Health Study (FAHS), begun in 2007, addresses some of the gaps in understanding health risks among flight attendants. In the latest report, published […]
Bristol-Myers Squibb announced today that its pioneering cancer immunotherapy drug Opdivo has been approved for sale in China. Opdivo targets a protein called PD-1, which is effectively a braking signal in the immune system. Cancer cells are incredibly wily when it comes to evading the body’s own natural defenses, and one of the ways they […]
Deadly brain tumours could be heated up by MRI scanners until they die in groundbreaking treatment Deadly brain tumours could be removed in just ten minutes with a groundbreaking new treatment which uses MRI scanners to heat up cancer cells until they die. The new therapy, developed by University College London, involves injecting a tiny […]
Monthly spending on certain cancer patients in Washington was $12,345 vs. $6,195 in British Columbia Despite paying double, Americans died slightly faster than Canadians in the study (CNN)Americans paid twice as much as Canadians for health care, but they didn’t get twice the benefit, according to a new study of patients with advanced colorectal cancer […]
Cancer has always been thought of as something that grows rapidly and uncontrollably, but this view may be wrong. New evidence suggests that cancer alternatively uses the “accelerator” and the “brake” in order to survive.
Augmented reality might not be able to cure cancer (yet), but when combined with a machine learning algorithm, it can help doctors diagnose the disease. Researchers at Google have developed an augmented reality microscope (ARM) that takes real-time data from a neural network trained to detect cancerous cells and displays it in the field of […]
