The National Cancer Institute estimates cancer care in the U.S. costs ~$72 billion annually (2004). Furthermore, about $55 billion of cancer drugs are used annually, none which have not significantly improved survival rates throughout the history of their use. If a typical cancer patient had to undergo 30 Gc-MAF injections at a cost of $150 per injection, that would cost ~$4500, not counting doctor’s office visits and follow-up testing. For comparison, gene-targeted cancer drugs range from $13,000 to $100,000 in cost per year and produce only marginal improvements in survival (weeks to months).

instead of doing something to prevent it in the first place, like taking care of themselves and treating their bodies the way nature intended them to... If we all fed our bodies with real, nature-made food and none of the synthetic crap we find in almost everything today, eliminated the stressful, rat-race for our next paycheck, had healthy relationships with other human beings, cared about our environment and the planet we live on -- I guarantee you that cancer and so many other diseases would virtually cease to exist.
Scientists know that psychological stress can affect the immune system, the body’s defense against infection and disease (including cancer); however, it is not yet known whether stress increases a person’s susceptibility to disease.

Currently, there is no evidence that stress is a direct cause of cancer. But evidence is accumulating that there is some link between stress and developing certain kinds of cancer, as well as how the disease progresses.
How exactly does cigarette smoking cause lung cancer? This question has not yet been answered definitively. But the most likely cause is the toxic mix of chemicals found in tobacco smoke...

Scientists turbo-charge immune cells to fight cancer
PARIS (AFP) — Scientists in the United States have created super-charged immune cells that helped beat back cancer tumours in half of a small group of patients tested, according to a study released Sunday.
