A super-accurate radiotherapy device that can target tumours deep inside the body is now bringing new hope to UK cancer patients.
Radiosurgery is a non-invasive cancer treatment in which targeted radiation beams are used to destroy or shrink tumours. But the Novalis Tx device tailors these beams to match the exact shape, size and position of a tumour in the body. This means that a more intense beam can be used without causing damage to surrounding tissue. The device can also manoeuver the beams to reach tumours deep inside the body, such as in the spinal cord, which were previously inaccess

Sorry, Its not because I wanna bash you, but I hear this every week!
This is the SECOND article I hear they maybe have found a cure!
I'm tired! I hear this so often now, that it sickens me..
It may be because my grandmother and my mothers sister is dead from cancer. And I'm afraid my mother or I will get cancer.
I'm sorry, It is not because I want to say anything bad about this thread, and I find it fantastic if they find a cure! Therefore I will still flag it, but I hope you understand my point of view, as I have seen so much cures now.
Oh and btw, The other cure I heard about today, was from salamander eggs. I will see if I can find it if interested.
The system uses X-ray images of a tumour to monitor its position, and can even adapt when growths - such as those in the lungs - move as the patient breathes. It responds by only zapping the tumour when it returns to its original position after each breath

It might just be a fringe opinion...I don't feel better because it is a super-fast Cure All Cancer Machine
If it was a super-slow OCD Cancer Machine I'd probably feel better about it.
Maybe we could use HAARP to shrink tumors while we sit at our computer chairs....
Wow, ^^maybe there's a good thread there^^
