    Someone once told me “David, the real cure for cancer will be a cure without chemicals and it will be a cure for all human illnesses”

    Hiw I found it is a long story, it can CURE & PREVENT Cancer and like the way Sir Arthur C Clarke said, it cures all illnesses.

    It has side effects like all cures, but only good ones like for instance SLOWING DOWN THE AGEING PROCESS..

    Is it a Human Right to be free of Cancer ?
