I saw on the news this morning that they have come up with a vaccine that will not only treat breast cancer but can also prevent it! It is in animal studies now but will be done in a year. Can that be true? I'm stunned and thrilled if it actually happens.

    Sounds good
    It sounds like great news doesn't it. Unfortunately, it has only been tested on mice. The human trials won't start till next year and they said it would be 10 yrs of study and trial groups before it's ready for mass marketing. (depending on results) But it's a step in the right direction for sure.

    It's about time they came up with a vaccine.
    I would definitely sign up to be a human guinea pig if they need volunteers but they probably want people who haven't already had breast cancer. I pray it works and that it doesn't take ten years to be able to offer it to anyone who wants it.

    Thanks for telling us about it. I still think the cure is out there, but, because of all of the money made off of cancer, they don't let it out. There has to be with all of the billions or trillions of dollars they have received and all of the great medical minds. But, I hope someday, in my lifetime, it is made public.

    They said it would be used to treat as well as prevent breast cancer. Wouldn't that be a miracle?!
