Please tell this quack doctor to take a look at tumour tissue under the microscope. The distinct lack of fungus present is a hint.


lol thats right. one of friend's uncle works fulltime at a cancer research facility.

Well, I can think of two reasons: there's no money in it, and to keep populations down. It makes me sick...


We will see how sick you in about 5 years when we can no longer support the population with food. You want to talk about government, then talk about how they make the farmers sell their corn to the oil companies to make ethonol with instead of feeding livestock.

No matter what you have seen on TV, doctors arnt evil gready money mongers, and there is no pharma-corp ninjas out there framing and killing people who cure things. Remember Jonas Salk, the doctor who found the cure for polio? A doctor, spent all his time researching it, then when he discovered it, he gave it away for free.

Cancer as a fungus, unlikely in the traditional sense, but I think it's out-side the box thinking that will lead to the cure.

Fungi = organisms made out of mycellial thread cells. Cancer = mutated animal cells which duplicate indefinitely and at an explosive rate.

He said that the cancer cells are a growth of cells to contain an excessive amount of the white fungus Candida. The cancer is animal cells. He just said that the cancer is caused by this fungus. The funky thing I find is that often cancer is white... and so is the Candida. Though I have not looked at a cancer cell under a microscope, that seems like a connection to me. Also, he states Candida begins growth in weakened areas, like lungs if you smoke, your mouth if you chew, your skin if it's damaged... and the body's reaction is too start a growth of cells that produce at an alarming rate. That way the Candida cannot spread throughout the body, it is contained. Cancer spreading comes from the Candida failing to be contained, breaking away and growing in other parts of the body, causing the body to form more cancer cells to once again contain it. This routine fits well with the current patterns of real situations. It makes sense.

There's science for you!

Could be useful though - if that logic works, there'll never be a shortage of blood for transfusions. After all, tomato ketchup is widely available, and that is most definitely red - perfect substitute!

In order to better understand this complex question, some background information on human anatomy is needed:

The human body is divided into three parts: the Brainium, the Borax, and the Abominable Cavity. The Brainium
contains the Brain. The Borax contains the Lungs, the Liver, and the Living Things. The Abominable Cavity
contains the Bowels, of which there are five: A, E, I, O, and U.

this thread amuses me in a kinda "HOW IS ANYONE SO STUPID" kind of way..

Although to be fair it sounds more like he has got the wrong end of the stick..

Well, more a bunch of toothpicks, calling it a stick

Haha, this thread still hasn't died XD

Eh, at any rate, what it came down to for me was that it was a possible alternative medicinal practice for treating cancer. Quack or not, I like the idea.

I would not be surprised if Bicarb Soda is to be blamed for causing cancer. Just like mobile phones, red wine, red meat, cereal boxes, cheese, being fat, thin, etc. Daily Mail may be responsible for most claims, but I've seen other media outlets report similar things about too much or too little.
Rest with genetic research to find the best results and even treatments or perhaps even complete prevention.

Another Med-student here.

Fungus isn't caused by a defect in DNA. Plus look at some cancerous cells, I'm sure they look absolutely nothing like fungus.

It might have already been said, but cancer is when a cell grows and replicates too fast for the body to deal with. (through a genetic mutation) . and that infection starts swelling and becoming a tumour. if it was that easy, we would have cured it a long time ago.

oh yeah, LOL at fahim96. that video is funny.

it could be CAUSED by a fungus. but apparently everything causes cancer.

Cancer is not a fungus, I am no scientist, but I believe it is just the rapid overgrowth of cells caused by the lack of the negative feedback. So here's the question of the day for the original poster: Where does this doctor get his drugs and his PHD.... oh wait it's an italian doctor, case closed.
