Israeli Scientists Claim They Found A Cure for Cancer, Critics Not Convinced

Cancer is a severe health problem with major impact on society. National Cancer Institute’s estimates showed that the number of new cases of cancer in the United States in 2018 was expected to reach 1,735,350 which is a staggering number. The most common cancers are breast cancer, lung and bronchus cancer, prostate cancer, colon and rectal cancers, melanoma, brain, kidney and renal pelvis cancer, bladder cancer, thyroid and liver cancers, among others. While some types of this disease are treated successfully when caught in early stages the cure that would wipe out all cancers didn’t exist. Now, Israeli scientists claim they found one such cure, but not all experts are confident about it.

Potential cure for cancer

For centuries scientists have tried to find a cure for cancer. While today we have a closer insight into the causes and risk factors of various cancers as well as treatment options, nobody has found a specific cure that could eliminate every cancer. Scientists from Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies Ltd. (AEBi), an Israeli biotech company, claim they accomplished what others didn’t – they found a cure for cancer. In a statement to the Jerusalem Post scientists revealed they believe that they will offer a complete cure for cancer in about a year.

Dan Aridor, a scientist at AEBi, claims the cure will be effective from day one, will last for a few weeks, and will have minimal risk of side effects. Not only that, the potential cure for cancer would be available to patients at a much affordable price compared to other treatments that are currently available.

In a nutshell, the potential cure for cancer which scientists named MuTaTo (multi-target-toxin) functions as a cancer antibiotic, a cutting-edge disruption technology of the highest order. It focuses on the use of peptides which are cheaper, smaller, and easier to produce and regulate compared to antibodies.

Cure not convincing

Bearing in mind that millions of people across the globe develop cancer each year everyone wants to wake up to the news that a cure is out there. Announcement from Israeli scientists is exciting, and it seems somehow too good to be true. 

Well, according to many scientists it is. 

First things first, they mentioned the cure was tested, but no findings were published whatsoever. They didn’t reveal methods, results, anything. It’s a major red alert! At the same time, many scientists brand this announcement as a desire of some entrepreneur to promote himself and explain that a single cure for all cancers will probably never be found.

Another reason for skepticism is that the only testing Israeli scientists conducted was on mice. Successful mouse research doesn’t always translate to humans the same way, i.e. it doesn’t guarantee success. 

Conclusion

Israeli scientists announced they found a cure that would be able to treat and cure cancer successfully. Experts and scientists are skeptical about the whole thing as the only research was carried out on mice and they didn’t even publish any specific findings. Plus, a cure for all cancers may never be found, especially not one that would cure them that rapidly.
