‘Universal’ cancer jab: Vaccine that stops all tumours in their tracks could be here in two years


A ‘universal’ vaccine that could revolutionise the treatment of cancer could be available in just two years.

The TeloVac jab is part of a new generation of drugs that use the body’s own defences to fight the disease, stopping tumours in their tracks.

TeloVac has already been given to hundreds of Britons with pancreatic cancer, one of the deadliest forms of the disease.

But it is hoped it will be effective against many other tumours, including those of the skin, lung and liver. Breast and prostate cancers may also be within its grasp.

Together, the six forms of the disease claim more 70,000 lives a year in the UK.

While we work for a cancer cure, we invariably continue to poison the planet's eco systems with radioactive waste, toxic air, acidified and poisoned soils and chemicalized foods.  Therefore, no matter how many "discoveries" we make for curing cancer, the human body cannot withstand the damaging onslaught of chemicals in the water, air and on the land.  Cancer will continue to rage as we continue to spread our toxins around the planet.
