Default Korean scientists successfully kill cancer with magnets

One thing I noticed about this study is that it confirms that cancer cells attract iron. We knew this from the studies of the use of IP6. IP6 chelation of iron has been posted on natmedtalk already.

------------------------------

In South Korea, scientists used a magnetic field to get cancer cells to actually self-destruct. The body removes old, defective, and infected cells through the process of programmed cell death (PCD), or apoptosis. In apoptosis, the rejected cell responds to certain signals sent by the body by fragmenting. Immune cells then consume these fragments. The magnets help trigger apoptosis. When apoptosis fails, however, rejected cells divide uncontrollably, developing tumors.

Magnets induce apoptosis

Professor Jinwoo Cheon of Yonsei University in Seoul and a team of scientists conducted experiments on bowel cancer cells using magnetic fields to induce apoptosis. They attached iron nanoparticles to antibodies, which bind to “receptor” molecules on tumor cells. These molecules cluster when the magnetic field is applied, triggering the “self-destruct” signal and thereby apoptosis. In the experiment, over half of the bowel cancer cells were destroyed when the signal for apoptopic clustering came into effect. Untreated cells remained unaffected and unharmed.

Big pharma’s response?

In a related experiment, the scientists performed the same therapy on zebra fish, which caused them to grow unusual tails. More trials are in the works.
We have demonstrated that apoptosis signaling can be turned on in-vitro (in the laboratory) and in a zebra fish in-vivo (living) model by using a magnetic switch, say the scientists. Our magnetic switch may be broadly applicable to any type of surface membrane receptors that exhibit cellular functions on clustering.
The study is to be published in the journal Nature Materials. One must wonder how this form of therapy—one that does not, as of yet, line the pockets of Big Pharma—will develop in the world of traditional medicine. Drug manufacturers (literally) bank on perpetual sickness, and cancer drugs have shown time and again to worsen tumors.

But regardless of any potential alternative treatments, big pharma will continue to push these dangerous ‘solutions’ on the public. Even while numerous cancer-fighting foods like turmeric, ginger, garlic, papaya leaf extract, berries, and many more exist, the pharmaceutical industry and mainstream medicine won’t recognize these as solutions.

Interesting article. I have long been of the opinion that we are being encouraged to be pill-poppers and depend on pharmacopeia, because it props up the pharma-giants, who seem to be in a symbiotic relationship with government bodies - funded by public monies - sadly.It also takes away the individual's responsibility to see to their own health, which is not a good thing, IMO.

I totally agree the the 'medicos' don't favour anything natural as it takes away their 'ownership' of health provision.
