Tullio Simoncini was expelled from the Italian Medical Association and in 2006 was tried and found guilty of fraud and manslaughter

Last year he received another jail sentence for manslaughter

So the tumor creates an environment in which it can then exist comfortably.
Solid tumours are acidic and this is due to defective metabolism

A far safer way to deal with this would be to use drugs like DCA or small molecule inhibitors of cancer specific enzymes

A clinical trial is testing a topical version of the latter

Dr. Simoncini notes the problem of surface area in addressing these infections. Whereas bacterial and viral infections are dispersed in the solutions of bodily compartments, and likewise, antibiotics and other anti-microbials dispersed in the same solutions have access to each microbe.

''Chlorine is a deadly poison gas employed on European battlefields in World War I. Sodium is a corrosive metal which burns upon contact with water. Together they make a placid and unpoisonous material, table salt. Why each of these substances has the properties it does is a subject called chemistry'' - Carl Sagan

Why is it that the loudest critics of ''Big Pharma'' are Big Placebo?
