    I see that you've asked this of a specific hubber, so I hope you'll pardon my butting in.  I thought this information might interest you ...

    In 2007, researchers at the University of Alberta found what they believe to be a cure for cancer.  After clinic trials, they issued a report last year indicating that the drug they were using showed that the tumors either regressed in size or did not grow further during the 18 month study.  (http://www.dca.med.ualberta.ca/Home/Upd … Update.cfm)

    Apparently, they are trying to secure more funding so they can do further testing.  I read that they're not getting a whole lot of support because the drug they are using, Dichloroacetate (DCA) is not profitable to the drug companies.  Their first round of testing was financed mostly from public donations, individuals and philanthropic foundations.

    Personally, I keep checking back to see if any new updates have been posted.
