Toxic Chemical Compound A Miracle Cancer Cure?
By James Donahue
Its chemical name is dichloroacetate, or DCA for short. It is a derivative of chlorinated
water and the metabolism of various drugs and industrial chemicals that get mixed in the same soup, and until recently, its
accumulation in groundwater has been considered a toxic health hazard.
But wait. Something odd has happened among medical scientists willing to try anything to
find miracle cures for some of the diseases.
Early experimentation showed that DCA stimulates an enzyme called PDC that is essential
for the production of cellular energy. Consequently, research was started on the possibility that the substance might help
delay the progression of Huntington's Disease. In yet another test case, DCA was found to improve symptoms of lactic acidemia
without causing serious drug-related toxicity.
Naturally, findings like that caused medical people from all over to raise their eyebrows,
pick up their medical journals, and launch some serious research of their own. And what a medical team at the University of
Alberta, in Edmonton, Canada, uncovered just about boggles the mind. The stuff also seems to be a cheap and simple drug that
kills almost all cancers!
That is right. If these doctors have done their research correctly, and if some terrible
mistake doesn't creep into this formula, Dr. Evangelos Michelakis and his colleagues appear to have found a miracle cancer
cure in a toxic puddle of chemical muck.
In tests conducted so far, rats deliberately infected with human cancer cells were fed
DCA-laced water for several weeks. That is it. They were forced to drink toxic water. And in every case, the tumors shrank
drastically in a very short time.
So how soon can this amazing cure be made available to the millions of dying cancer patients
in the United States and around the world? Don't hold your breath. What was discovered in Edmonton, Canada, challenges a multi-billion
dollar medical industry which means the American Medical Association will fight this "cure" tooth and nail. Look for big problems
not only with a propaganda campaign from the AMA and pharmaceutical industry, but also stall tactics by the U.S. Food and
Drug Administration, which will require years of testing before allowing the cure to get across our border.
The biggest problem with dichloroacetate is that it has no patent, it is extremely inexpensive
to produce, and nobody can get rich by manufacturing and selling it. Consequently, the pharmaceutical industry will not be
in a hurry to produce it.
The big news is that Canadian doctors appear to have found a miracle cure for most cancers.
The bad news is that unless things change in the US, most cancer patients may have to travel to Canada for treatment when
DCA becomes available there.
