Scientists have unlocked the entire genetic code of two of the most common cancers - skin and lung - a move they say could revolutionise cancer care.
Not only will the cancer maps pave the way for blood tests to spot tumours far earlier, they will also yield new drug targets, say the Wellcome Trust team.
Scientists around the globe are now working to catalogue all the genes that go wrong in many types of human cancer.
The UK is looking at breast cancer, Japan at liver and India at mouth.
China is studying stomach cancer, and the US is looking at cancers of the brain, ovary and pancreas.

This could be something big,lets hope so.
If this gets recognised by the wider scientific/medical community this could be amazing for our future as a species(and some of us living today).
Being me,I have to put a slight downer on the subject though(sorry)-what would the big pharma companies do to stop a cure for cancer becoming widespread?
Anything they possibly could IMO.
Sort of puts them out of business for lots of thier products,and they do not like that.
Professor Michael Stratton, who is the UK lead, said: "These catalogues are going to change the way we think about individual cancers. "By identifying all the cancer genes we will be able to develop new drugs that target the specific mutated genes and work out which patients will benefit from these novel treatments.

I've heard of fasting but never solely used for treatment and it is an interesting concept so I may have to look into it.
If you want to try and do it naturally, the first thing you may consider doing is unclogging your bowels - getting out all that excess waste that can sit there for days on end sometimes - and get your bowels regularly moving back to the manner they were designed. This would mean changing diet and lifestyle, by getting plently of natural water, clean air, exercise and consuming plently of fresh fruit, vegies, nuts, grains as a bare minimun.
Some people then fast and go on juice diets and raw food (vegetables etc) with plently of water, and herbs for a flush and detox.
This should get the body back to the way it was designed and hopefully from there it can take care of itself.
I don't feel the human body was designed to eat processed foods, consuming chemicals, breathe pollution, having no exercise, and still fight disease naturally.
However, some find the natural way a bit challenging and daunting so luckily there are other easier viable alternatives out there to try...but then again 'prevention is always better than a cure'.

Iodine and skin cancer ..... Also sodium bicarbonate.
Very interesting thanks.
Have you heard of MMS? Cannabinoids and cancer (including Rick Simpson). Hydrogren peroxide, Ozone, Dr Robert Beck, Tannic acid etc?
Just thought I'd throw a few out there. Thanks
