I saw this amazing story on Gizmodo yesterday about a man who has leukemia and has found a potential cure/no side effects treatment for cancer using radio waves. John Kanzius could ‘t sleep one night due to his chemotherapy and started to think. He got the idea that radio waves could kill cancer cells and decided to build a prototype machine using pie pans and conducted tests on hot dogs injected with copper sulfate—the radio waves only heat up metal spots, the theory being this will kill just the copper infused cancer cells, without harming any of the other cells.
It’s an amazing story and it just might work. They are doing clinical trials right now. Go ahead and click on the link and watch the video from 60 Minutes. It’s an inspiring piece, and I’ll admit I had a bit of a tear in my eye at the end.
This really shows me the strength of the human spirit and how when faced with an enormous challenge and possible end of life, people will do all in their power to just get a little bit more time. Mr. Kanzius may not make it to see the cure, but just possibly he will have helped those that come after him, and that has to be comforting.
