Dichloroacetate: A Cure for Cancer?
An experimental cancer drug called dichloroacetate shows promise in the fight against cancer by altering cancer cell metabolism and inducing apoptosis – basically cellular suicide.

It appears to exert anti-tumor effects against several forms of cancer, including brain, endometrial, cervical, prostate, breast, and colorectal cancers.

The problem is Big Pharma doesn't want to spend money researching it because of its low return on investment.

It begs the question... why, as a nation, do we spend so much money on cancer research awareness if the real solutions aren't being pursued?
