|Has the cure for cancer already been found? On
the internet, I found referecnes to the cure for
cancer (already detected in the years 1920-1930
by different scientists like George Lakhovsky,
Nikkola Tesla and Royal Raymond Rife?). Using a
Multi Wave Oscillator they ware able to
regenarate the human body cells. Are there any
modern science investigations done to confirm or
deny this? Is this just a myth?
|Question Date: 1999-12-23|
I have searched our medical databases for anything
connected to a "multi wave oscillator" and
"cancer" and I'm afraid I've come up empty handed.
I too have seen web sites which claim to
capitalize on the work by Tesli, Rive, Abrams and
Lakhovsky. For example, Ed Skilling claims to have
a "photon sound beam" designed to accomplish all
kinds of things including, "devitalize pathogens"
and "detoxify the body".
haven't seen any direct claims that his device
could regenerate cells and provide a cure for
cancer but the claims made in general seem far
fetched. Honestly, I am not an expert on this kind
of thing so I can't give you a definitive answer
to your question. However, I can find no support
in the literature for the claims they are making
so I am fairly skeptical of such a device.
I hope this helps. Sorry I couldn't turn
up anything more useful!
These stories are what we now call urban
myths.They circulate forever and they have no
factual basis. The underlying logic of these
claims is that somehow, with a critically
important issue, like cancer, all of science
unites to block investigation of this miracle
cure. It suggests, somehow that scientists from
all sorts of different cultures, perspectives and
value systems can somehow put aside all their
differences and unite against the miracle . Or
all of them be too dumb to see the miracle when it
is put in front of their faces.
I had not heard anything about this kind of cure
for cancer but I checked out the web page that
another answerer mentioned. It looks like this
multi-wave oscillator thing is meant to help boost
the immune system. Ideally, I'd want to see some
evidence from a well designed clinical trial
before I'd ever believe that something like this
would work. No such evidence was presented on
this particular website (such as references to
articles in respected medical journals). Remember
that just because the name of a respected
scientist such as Tesla is mentioned doesn't mean
it works for the purpose intended. To be fair
though, the sellers of this device explicitly say,
"...It is not intended for the diagnosis,
prevention, treatment, cure or mitigation of any
In order to "turn" cancer
cells into normal cells you need to repair the
genetic damage in the DNA.I know that a lot of
people are actively working on ways to repair
damaged cells using gene therapy but there have
not been many successes in this area as far as I
know. Right now most cancer treatments try to
destroy the cancer cells and unfortunately target
healthy cells as well. There is also a lot of
work being done to create drugs that target only
the cancer cells or to help the immune system get
rid of the cancer. This is all very difficult
because cancer is not caused by just one type of
genetic damage but many different ones. For many
if not most cancers, I don't think we even know
what exactly went wrong in the DNA or why. The
Human Genome Project, when finished in a few
years, will hopefully help a lot. I believe a lot
has been learned already from that work in
By the way, this is a
subject near and dear to me also since I am in
remission after being treated for leukemia.
Thank you for your question. you may or may not
have received an answer yet, but I am writing to
offer another suggestion. In addition to
scienceline, I am also part of a group known as
ROOM 103, and we have a web-based question and
answer site. If you go to http://www.room103.com
and submit your question with the name MICHAEL
ZEINEH in the subject line, he may be able to
answer your questions better. He is a doctor who
answers questions such as yours. Tell him that
Peter referred you to him.
Good luck sir!
