    Re: Killing cancer.

    Just watched a harrowing programme about broadcaster Bill turnbulls fight with Prostate cancer, what a lovely fella who is trying hard to stay positive about his condition despite gradually getting worse, we also see the moral dillema Bill faces as he turns to using cannabis oil to ease his condition ...best of luck Bill

    A new diagnostic device is being trialed in Britain, it is a non invasive breath test which is capable of detecting cancer molecules in the body, it is being trialed primarily on cancer affecting the oesophageus and stomach but in time if trials are succesful it could be used for many other areas commonly affected

    Re: Killing cancer.

    So Proton beam therapy is now a reality in the north of England, today Christies hospital in Manchester unvieled the groundbreaking 125 million pound machine that directly targets certain tumours without destroying the surrounding cells and tissue. To begin the therapy will be offered primarily to children and in exceptional cases to certain adults with more complicated conditions. We are very lucky to have this technology as in the past it was necessary to travel abroad to receive it.

    Heard about this study a while ago, lets hope it is successful and we see a rollout soon, what a great development this would be.

    Great to see what can only be described as a barrage of adverts on tv at the moment for cancer research, some upsetting film of actual sufferers is nicely offset by some more uplifting film of them in recovery and enjoying the things we all take so much for granted.

    That is great news tex.

    French researchers have won a prize for their innovative use of 3D printing to create a breast implant for cancer reconstruction surgery.
    The project, coined Mat(t)isse, was carried out by Julien Payen and Pierre-Marie Danze PhD Life and Health Sciences at Lille 1 University and this, the duo were awarded the Théophile Legrand Textile Innovation prize..

    Re: Killing cancer.

    Coppafeel founder Kris halenga has been campaigning for 5 years to get cancer awareness on the school curiculum in Britain and now it has become reality. The German born cancer sufferer has been fighting her own battle with breast cancer for a staggering 10 years. The initiative will come into being from 2020 as part of schools sex education lessons, pupils will be taught how to identify potential symptoms and what action to take. This is great news and will surely save many lives

    Ah, but that only totals 99.99999999999999999% and not 100% - there is a 0.00000000000000001% difference of course.

    The Cancer Research adverts claimed that one in three of us will get cancer at some point in our lives - very startling facts, although it does mean that we are twice as likely not to get cancer than to have it.

    Still, a third is very much a high percentage nevertheless.
