Physics = cancer cure?

I think you have accidentally the different branches of science.

Biology is a natural science concerned with the study of life and living organisms, including their structure.
studying a gecko and its ability to lift hold onto things is Biology.

is it suddenly a physicists job to cure cancer?

There's an overlap of branches in this case. Chemists might be interested in the combination of acids in an animals digestive tract while a physicist might be interested in whatever the **** is happening in the feet of a gecko that allow it to hold 40kg. A biologist gets to be stoked about the whole creature and it's ancestry/behavior/whatever.

Some cancer treatment uses gamma rays, which you could say are more on the physics side.

You know, not all scientists specialize in curing diseases.
Like, if you asked a particle physicist to cure cancer, he would just accelerate 2 cancer patients against eachohter at high speeds.

No matter how trivial it may be, every little bit of research and every little bit of discovery leads to something big or can unlock a whole new revolution. Our understanding of electrons, magnets and the electromagnetic wave lead us to development of technology. Who knows what the discovery of the Higgs Boson and our enhanced understanding of 'mass' could lead us.

Cancer already has a cure. It's not sold, because no one wants to spend the money on the proper testing of a drug they legally can not make money on, in order to cut down their own profits.

yes, cannabis oil is a cure for cancer, injecting yourself with cannabis is the strongest way of taking it, smoking is actually the lightest form and all smoking does is sloow down the growth of tumors, its such an amazing plant and is oppressed so much, damn government!

There is no proof that cannabis oil directely injected into the bloodstream(thats not even the way people on it take it, and no they don't smoke it either) will kill(destroy) tumors and if you continue to claim it please tell me what is your source on this information.

There is no such thing as a "cure for cancer". Anyone telling you that they have found one is either lying to you or oversimplifying their discoveries.

I know what he's talking about. Researchers in Alberta in Canada discovered a POSSIBLE cure for cancer. It also DOES have a patent for a cancer-treating agent, the pharmaceutical industry won't invest in it, so they don't have the proper funds for the clinical trials. They've tested it on some people with glioblastoma, an aggressive type of brain cancer, with the DCA, and those tests resulted in generally good things happening. However, there may be a variety of factors that affect how the drug affects you, so basically, they need more testing in order to be sure that there are no bad or irreversible side effects.

So, it MIGHT be a cure for cancer, but there are still many trials to be done before it's safe to use.

There are many studies being done on DCA. Some have shown possible benefits in solid tumor reduction. Some have shown that it could in fact be harmful. None have shown it to be a panacea.

The reason no pharmaceutical companies have picked it up is not because it won't make them money, but because it isn't properly tested and approved. Companies make a profit selling water, if it really worked, it would have been approved, licensed and mass produced within days.

Science is slow. I realize this can be frustrating to people who are in pain and looking for an easy fix. But please do not promote this drivel. This entire idea shows a poor understanding of cancer cell biology, the meaning of clinical trials, and the biotechnology business in general.

It's been found that cancer can be cured by gravity.
If you take a person on an airplane, toss them out an opening such as a door or large window, and let gravity take its course, the person will not be troubled with cancer for very long.
