Cure for Cancer?

I was reading the news yesterday, slowly perusing the headlines of a dozen different on-line newspapers and news outlets, when a particular item caught my eye.  Normally, unless there is a new story or breaking news, I skim over the headlines because I am already up-to-date on older posts.

But this story immediately grabbed me.  The headline referred to a possible cure for cancer.  Why, I wondered, had other news agencies not reported this?  Or, if they had, why had I not seen it?

Upon reading the article (printed in both the New York Post and on Fox News on-line), it seemed to be too good to be true.  So, I did some research and found that indeed, research at Stanford University, going back over a year, has devised a remarkable approach in attacking and eliminating virtually all types of cancers in the body.

Trials in mice have gone very well and human trials are scheduled for this year.  Let's all pray this pans out as the silver bullet we need to eradicate this horrible affliction.

To read more on this developing story, Google Stanford University Cancer Cure CD47.
