The research was done in 2007, and the people who did the research have complaints that nobody is taking interest.
How is what you just wrote any sort of reflection of the truth of this situation, or any sort of adequate response to what I wrote? I'm not criticising anyone for not revealing research at this stage (if people are researching now, that's great)
I'm drawing attention to the fact that the people who conducted the original research are complaining that other researchers/ Big Pharma/ governments aren't taking this seriously.
Besides - most researchers will provide an outline of current projects via the administrative centres responsible for maintaining their research organisation? So again I say, your argument is more or less moot, and essentially another made-up nonsense which has no general basis in reality.
You constructed a false argument in a knee-jerk backlash. Probably over-sensitive that your made-up nonsense about the non-patentability of compounds had been called out.? Not best to counter such accusations with more made-up nonsense.
The only legitimacies for the premise and aims of research not being shared at the outset of the research involve situations where the topic being investigated might have something to do with national security, or a product/ process/ compound etc that can be used to make money at the end of it all. Corporate advantage and all that.
Or, if it is in some way Mengelian, and thus shameful/ politically or legally risky to reveal.

Third, the part about the mitochondria and glycolysis are just messed up. Mitochondria are organelles present in every cell ESPECIALLY cancer cell. They do not kill anything and they are only partially involved in apoptosis. Glycolyisis does not produce lactic acid, and lactic acid is not the sole reason for the tumor's resistance to treatment.

Erm BTW this was posted before, its a joke and stupid if the cure was not profitable then a charity would pick it up...
Think about it, cancer research charities? why not cancer cure charities? involve a slight bit of logic here people its embarrassing, no wonder everyone thinks you are conspiracy nutters...

I noticed someone linked this article today on Facebook, so it must have resurfaced somehow ( I believe because more research has been done). Anywho- I'm commenting only at the sadness I feel after reading the comments. So many people (on ATS!!!) don't know there is a cure for cancer. One member did post the Rick Simpson story "Run for the Cure". Thank you to that guy! It seems a plant simply can't be the cure for anything. Most of the posts on here imply that they only believe that a cure can be made out of something unnatural. Otherwise, well, it's just a plant. That's Big Pharma's take on it, on account of the monies. I guess I'm just sad. Sad that so many people could be helped. Sad that they can't. Sad that the government made a cure illegal. Just sad.

Long term use (a year or more) of high doses of DCA has been shown to increase risk of liver cancer in mice, however the dosages required for carcinogenicity (> 77 mg/kg/day) are significantly higher than suggested therapeutic doses in humans. Studies of the trichloroethylene (TCE) metabolites dichloroacetic acid (DCA), trichloroacetic acid (TCA), and chloral hydrate suggest that both DCA and TCA are involved in TCE-induced liver tumorigenesis and that many DCA effects are consistent with conditions that increase the risk of liver cancer in humans at dosages much higher than used for cancer therapy.

There has always been a cure for cancer for those willing to eat and live right. The problem is people are lazy and would prefer to pump their bodies full of crap and take a pill to fix the problem later. It's no different than people who are able bodied getting liposuction for their stomachs before even attempting diet and exercise.
