Seems likely you would need to inject it prior to radiation therapy. Just drinking a glass of colloidial gold may not work.

Could be, could be. Have you read the study where they found that taking a sample of a tumor, modifying it and injecting it back into patients seems to shrink tumors as well? I can't provide a link, but I think this was last spring/early summer.

You may be right, although I would think they could sell a cancer cure for big $$$, sad to say....  :frown:

Do you realize the potential benefits to insurance companies, should a cure for cancer be found?

To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

The cost of insurance would plummet, and they would lose revenue.
