Mayoman : That's right Alex . This was the first trial . They can apply the same principle to other Cancers but as always will take a while to get to the public . I listened to the Sloane-Kettering researcher this AM . She seemed genuinely astonished at how the cancers in question just vanished without a trace !!! She said this is huge . First time in cancer history that this result was achieved !! Very promising news . This would mean No Radiation and No Chemo necessary !! Magoo ?

Mayoman : This trial applied to a particular Gene Mutation which prevents other treatments from working . These 18 people had no hope of survival and are now cancer free . It only works before the Rectal Cancer gets to Stage 4 ...it only works in the early stages . Magoo ?

AlexT : The chemotherapy I could live with but I'm not a fan of the after effects of radiation.

Mayoman : I can be diastrous Alex . Kitty had Radiation and Chemo for Breast Cancer . Kitty's entire Colon and 85 percent of her Small Intestine were destroyed and had to be removed . Kitty had Short Bowel as a result but after about a year she had trained herself to be able to eat food again , the Docs were amazed that she accomplished that . The treatment very nearly killed Kitty . They just took the lump and it never came back . ?Magoo

lovely : Radiation is a beast. I had cervical cancer and took radiation. My Dr told me I could have problems in later years with my legs . He was right my whole left side leg and hip gives me a lot of pain when I walk just short distances or bend down to much. It would be amazing if they find something to replace it without all the side affects.

Mayoman : Hi Guys , I just saw another piece on MRNA therapy being used for Cancer treatment Pancreatic Cancer is the latest one that so far looks like it was cured using the same technique . A lab in Germany created a treatment that was prepared for Sloane-Kettering using patient Genetic information . The Docs and patient said the Pancreatic Cancer is gone !!! A lot of these techniques were developed in the search for the Covid Vaccine !! Some good may come out of all the Covid misery and death . ??????
