Probable cure for cancer
Worth waking up for...
Wouldn't you think a nearly complete cure for cancer would be big news? You'd think so. But in our drawkcab news media, it's much less important than lip-smacking prurient coverage of the hot schoolteacher making it with the quarterback.
Nevertheless, it's real.
Dichloroacetate, a fairly simple organic chemical. Minimal side effects; already approved by FDA for another obscure purpose, and it definitely kills most tumors.
It's being developed in Edmonton, so the Canadian media are covering it, but I couldn't find any mention in any major US news organization.
Why no mention? Because it's so simple it can't be patented. So there won't be any exclusive profits for one company.

Or this one.

Aside from news, you'd also think governments would be clamoring to fund this development, for the sake of bragging rights. And you'd think scientists and foundations would be doing the same. Nope, the governments and the scientists are only
excited about putting billions into embryonic
stem cells. More proof, if any were needed, that our governments and scientists are firmly in the grip of Gaia-worship. For modern Commies, the thrill of sacrificing innocent unborn babies is a religious requirement and a blood fetish, and it takes absolute precedence over such minor uninteresting scholastic trivialities as curing cancer.

And I should add the name of the discoverer: Evangelos Michelakis. If this works as well as it appears, the name of Michelakis will belong in the Pantheon of medicine, along with Galen, Pasteur, Jenner, Fleming and Salk.
