Cancer experts doubt Israeli claim of cancer cure

It was too good to be true.

Three days ago, I posted the news from Jerusalem Post that a team of Israeli scientists said they “might have found the first complete cure for cancer”.

Dan Aridor, the chairman of the bio-company that developed the cure, Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies Ltd. (AEBi), trumpets that their cure will be offered in a year, and that the cure “will be effective from day one,” “will have no or minimal side-effects,” and “at a much lower cost” than most other cancer treatments on the market.

See “Israeli scientists claim to have a cure for cancer“.

AEBi’s claim was widely broadcast and celebrated.

The usually-sensible Daily Wire even politicized the alleged cancer cure with this anti-antiSemitic headline: “Still Want To Boycott Israel? Israeli Scientists Find Cure For Cancer, Report Says“.

I was somewhat skeptical of AEBi’s claim because no human trials have been conducted, the discovery has not been vetted and published in peer-reviewed scientific journals, nor has it be replicated. Replicability is one of the defining criteria of science. AEBi had conducted only in-vitro (test-tube) trials and one rat experiment.

The skepticism is shared by cancer experts.

From Newsweek, Jan. 30, 2019:

As news stories hailing the discovery spread online, other cancer experts urged the public to approach the report with caution.

Dr. Darren Saunders, a cancer biologist at the University of New South Wales, Australia, tweeted the researchers were “selling unicorns.”

Professor Lawrence Young, director of the Warwick Cancer Research Centre at the University of Warwick, U.K., told Newsweek he was concerned the team had not appeared to publish their data in a peer-reviewed journal, and that no clinical trials had been performed. Such trials are the first step outside of the laboratory in drug development.

Julia Frater, senior cancer information nurse at the charity Cancer Research UK, told Newsweek: “Unsubstantiated claims that there will be a cure for all cancers in a year are irresponsible and can be misleading for patients. This oversimplifies the fact that cancer is more than 200 different diseases, which behave differently and pose different treatment challenges. This is why finding a single cure for all cancers is unlikely.”

Meanwhile, Professor Chris Bunce, who specializes in translational cancer biology at the University of Birmingham, U.K., told Newsweek that widely used treatments such as chemotherapy were previously regarded as “radical” and said the “technology being talked about here may be another step in that journey. But based on the information available the claim that it will provide a ‘complete cure for cancer’ is unfounded.”

Professor Justin Stebbing, an expert in cancer medicine and oncology at Imperial College London, U.K., told Newsweek that research at the Weizmann “is some of the best in the world.” But he said he is yet to see any success with peptides treating any cancers. “It isn’t helpful to build up false hope, or talk of universal cancer cures when advances in knowledge are often made in small steps not giant leaps,” he said.

Bunce explained why creating cancer drugs is so difficult. “On one hand cancer cells are not the big scary monsters that the general public believes them to be. More than 99.9 percent of the molecular processes within them are the same as the normal cells they originate from. So finding drugs that only target cancer cells is like finding needles in haystacks. The second problem is that within a given cancer there is complex variation and structure. There are cancer stem cells, and there are cancer subclones with different arrays of mutations and different levels of resistance to any given therapy. Painful lessons have been learned trying to exploit drugs that do not target founding mutations.”

Even many hopeful laboratory findings cannot be translated into actual therapies that are successful, he said.

Bunce argued it is “unethical” to make overly optimistic claims that raise people’s hopes and “discredit those of us who are working really hard to find better treatments.”

Let’s hope this new cancer cure won’t turn out to be another cold fusion pipedream.

Great article, research has advance so much so that some of us can beat this disease. There are many forms of cancer that could be eradicated in a near future, however cancer cells live within us. My oncologist and I agree that stress is a contributor factor in the development of cancer.

I pray they are correct. With so much to be gained or lost, it is hard to decide whom to believe these days. So many companies as well as individuals are owned by big pharma as well as others, making it hard to decide who is being honest. The world could do with some amazing news.

AEBi chairman of the board Dan Aridor, said: “We used to give AIDS patients several drugs, but we would administer them one at a time. During the course of treatment, the virus mutated, and the AIDS started attacking again. Only when patients started using a cocktail, were they able to stop the disease”. I had friends that took those drugs, one at a time is a crock. They had cupboards full of drugs they took every day. The cocktail was a combination of those drugs but marketed differently and combined, and the key thing he and all of these HIV/AIDS… Read more »

If its true, the “search for the cure for cancer” machine will shift into high gear to derail it because it’ll put all of them out of work.
I’m going to be hopeful that they have indeed found or even stumbled upon a cure for cancer and Lord knows what else.
So many scientific advances have occurred that were poo-pooed at the time that we take for granted now.
This could be one of them.
Just sayn’

Yeah. So after torturing cancer patients with radiation and chemo-therapy, they suddenly have the “perfect cure” with no side effects? I don’t believe it. If its true where’s it been all this time. I’d hate to think I went through all that for nothing.

I urge readers to check out wwwdrday.com Being a physician, she knew orthodox medicine would never save her life when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, so she cured herself with only natural methods. There is a photo of her unbelievable tumor (more than 20 years ago) and several recent photos of herself. She is in her seventies, but could pass for 45.

The Truth About Cancer Right now the government we trust whether it be the United States, Canada, Europe or any country, they are making sure that the public are consuming foods which absolutely DO cause disease and then receive toxic chemicals as there so called “cures.” This is not good intention or accidental and if you think it is, then you need to really take a second look at what is going on. So what is this so called “think tank” agenda behind devising such a plan? Well of course feed the population with unlabeled GMO pesticide corn and soy,… Read more »

I did not know how to make a live link, so I just typed it in the regular manner. I looked at her site twice yesterday, so all you have to do is search: drday.com Dr. Lorraine Day is a courageous woman who has been under extreme attack ever since she began sharing her story, particularly from AARP (who is in the pocket of big pharma). She was the first person who I heard publicly say 9-11 was an inside job, which got her banned from the radio show of freemason and controlled opposition, Art Bell. Later she was banned… Read more »

By the way, the Dr. Day mentioned in the comment by M Walker, was Dr. Richard Day who died in 1989. He was another courageous doctor who came forward in 1988 to spill the beans on the future plans of the NWO.

Forgive me for relating a personal experience, which I often do. My mother was diagnosed with ovarian cancer at age 37 ( almost 50 years ago) when NO ONE survived it. Additionally, it was a cancerous cyst that burst and spread before her surgery—-all the little cancer cells throughout her body. She was surgically relieved of everything that they could take out and let her still survive. Then, she went on to endure 2 years of primitive-level chemotherapy of the day, until she was almost DEAD from that……unable to eat, maybe 80 lbs body weight at 5’2″……etc etc. She searched… Read more »

As if an Israeli would ever offer a cure to a non-Jew. If they ever actually found a cure, it would be available in Israel only and you’d have to be Jewish to get it. If they are peddling it to the goyim, it is a scam. Period.

You got that right. Besides, the money is in “treating” disease, not “curing” it.
