Are We Inches Away From Finding A True Cure For Cancer?
Is One Of The Most Exceptional Breakthroughs In The Medical Field Almost Attainable?
Cancer is one of the deadliest diseases in the world. In fact, it consistently ranks in the top 5 deadly medical conditions all over the world, claiming quite a number of lives every year.
For those of you who do not know, cancer is basically just some rapid and unusual cell division that happens in certain areas of the body. There are many different kinds of cancers including skin cancer, bone marrow cancer, lung cancer, pancreatic cancer, and many more.
Although cancer research has been done for many years now, we’re still not close enough to find a true cure for cancer.
Sure, it can be treated with chemotherapy along with radiation therapy, but for the most part, our available treatments have many unwanted side effects such as hair loss, weight loss and sexual issues that affect the libido, which could cause premature ejaculation as well.
Well, that is probably about to change as some Israeli scientists have made promising discoveries that might get us closer to a true cure for cancer.
The scientists and researchers from the Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies or AEBi in Israel told the Jerusalem Post recently that in just a year’s time, they’re going to make a cure that will rid anyone of cancer.
In the Post, the treatment is known as the “MuTaTo” which stands for “multi-target toxin”. It consists of different peptides that were developed by the scientists themselves that will latch onto different sites on a cancer cell, all at once.
By binding onto the different cancer cells in the body, the peptides work in a way that helps prevent the cancer cells from mutating and dividing.
Aside from latching onto the cancer cells, some of the peptides will also act as the eradicators and will then eliminate the cancer cells that are present in the body.
Although it sounds quite promising and if it truly works, then this is going to be the true miracle cure of 2020. However, we should not get our hopes up just yet as many health experts agree that the claims are just too outrageous and there are lapses in the scientists’ study.
Why We Should Remain Skeptical
There have been many promising claims before which means that this is not the only one. According to Dr. Robert Maki, the chief scientific officer for the Northwell Health Cancer Institute in New York, the AEBi study is just too outrageous and dangerous at the same time because it can create a false sense of hope.
The AEBi study is fairly limited as the experiments were done on mice. Certainly, there are some cells that are identical to ours, but their findings might not translate into good use for us humans.
Furthermore, there is no data to review which means that the information about the study is fairly limited.
Also, cancer cells differ from person to person which means that there are other unique attributes that can vary greatly in each of us.
Their so-called “cure” is going to put down many believers. Only time will tell if they are indeed able to pull this off, but if I were you, I wouldn’t get my hopes up.
