#1. More Canadians are being diagnosed with liver, thyroid and kidney cancers because of factors like obesity and alcohol abuse. So more Canadians are getting cancer...
#2. 75,700 Canadians are expected to die from cancer in 2012 (according to the Canadian Cancer Society).
#3. The mortality rate is dropping! Since 1988 an estimated 100,000 lives were saved from 1988 to 2007 largely thanks to new medications and treatments.
#4. New cancer cases are increasing in tandem with an aging and growing population, but the biggest threat remains smoking-related lung cancer, which kills more than breast, prostate and colorectal cancers combined.
#5. Lung cancer is declining and has been since the 1980s due to a huge drop in the number of Canadians who smoke. (Either they're dying off or quitting in an effort to improve their health.)
#6. In 2009 Canadian scientists cured cancer using the drug DCA, but because there is no patent on DCA no big pharmaceutical companies are willing to mass produce it as a cancer medication (because there isn't any profit in reproducing a drug that has no patent). See the video below:
So taking in all the facts the question then becomes, if obesity keeps going up and smoking keeps going down, will medications be able to kill what ails Canadians?
Well with the DCA drug, its possible Canada could wipe out 90% of cancer and dramatically improve the lifespans of Canadians. There is a booming market for DCA on the internet, but there is also start up companies which are selling it in alternative health stores since the big pharmaceutical companies have refused to hitch their horses to an unprofitable wagon.
Canadian doctors are also recommending patients try DCA and where to purchase it. Since the drug is so cheap and easy to make it doesn't cost much to try the medication and since it has been used for other illnesses it can still be purchased in pharmacies for treatment of those illnesses.
So all you really need is a note from your family doctor for DCA and you can get it from your local pharmacy.
The cure for cancer has been sitting on pharmacy shelves for decades, but we didn't even notice it until 2009.
