Shark attack saves man's life after he discovers he has cancer...

When I read this headline it did not make sense to me, but what happened is still extremely fortunate considering. Imagine getting a shark bite and being thankful for it.

The headline should read, "Who Needs Chemotherapy When A Shark Will Do?"


A man’s potentially fatal encounter with a shark saved his life, after doctors treating him for his injuries discovered he had cancer.

Eugene Finney was on a family holiday with his two children, aged 6 and 10, and his girlfriend on Huntington Beach, California, when he went for a swim and felt something “slam into his back”.

“[It hit] harder than I've ever been hit in my life,” the 39-year-old told the Sentinel and Enterprise.

Startled and hurt, the art museum marketing co-ordinator managed to flee from the water, but did not know exactly what had happened to him.

But that wouldn't make any sense. The shark attack didn't treat the cancer, it led to the cancer's discovery... which was then treated appropriately by medical professionals

Interesting side note -- sharks are one of the only animals to never get cancer themselves...

Squalene in shark fin/cartilage has been tested and found to trigger our bodies to fight cancer. It actually dampens the cancer growth If I remember right. The shark has just jolted the guy so to protect his buddies from getting killed for their fins. Bypassing the normal way to administer the medicine.

You can also get kicked by a cow, bovine cartilage can slow cancer from growing also. Just eat the soup made from soup bones instead of having the cow kick you.

Except in this case the guy did not need chemotherapy to treat his cancer because the shark bit him.

The shark bite led to medical examination which lead to the discovery of tumors. These were then removed surgically.

The shark had nothing to do with the treatment of the cancer.

The tumors were removed surgically. Not all cancer needs to be treated with chemo.

An associate at my work tried to pick something up that was far too heavy to be lifted and caused a compression fracture in her spine... as a result, they discovered breast cancer and caught it early enough she is cancer free.... just in a brace until her spine heals....


Moral of the story, lifting saves lives.

Sidenote; It was taken out of context, sharks cannot get cancer, well it can, but sharks have a cant remember a System which makes them cancer free when DNA damage occurs.

We share the same DNA, the trick question is can shark DNA be used in fighting cancer, highly likely. However we cant, if you could live as humans, as the ideals of a human. We would see an increase of the human average age explode, 180-240 years. We cant, human nature is the main problem.

But im no expert im just a conspiracy nut.

On a side note to this, some animals can "smell" cancer.I wonder if the shark sensed this somehow? Dogs can.

Because the shark didn't and doesn't cute cancer? That might be why.

since the shark sent the guy to the hospital it should be responsible for the bills the guy got for the cancer treatment.

Actually, this is a misconception.

www.livescience.com...


Scientists have known for more than 150 years that sharks get cancer. And yet the belief persists that the animals don't suffer from the disease.

That misconception is promoted in part by those who sell shark cartilage, who claim that the substance will help cure cancer, said David Shiffman, a shark researcher and doctoral student at the University of Miami. But no studies have shown that shark cartilage is an effective treatment, and the demand for the material has helped decimate shark populations, researchers say: Humans kill about 100 million sharks per year, according to a March 2013 study (although many factors contribute to the killing of sharks, including demand for shark-fin soup


Shark with tumour.

"Humans kill about 100 million sharks per year"
That's a hell of a lot of sharks mate.
Are you sure?
