Skip to comments.Another miracle from Israel? Prostate cancer cure in 20 minutes

One in six American men will develop prostate cancer. It is the most common cancer after skin cancer, and the second biggest cancer killer for men. Two Israeli scientists at the Weizmann Institute in Israel promise an almost miraculous cure, now in clinical trials at New York’s Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. It is the culmination of 20 years of basic research by plant scientist Avigdor Scherz and cancer researcher Yoram Saloman.
Professor Scherz took a naturally occurring form of chlorophyll from aquatic bacteria:
… chemically modified by Prof. Scherz's lab at Weizmann to fit the team's pharmaceutical needs. Once the photosensitized drug is injected, it meets up with the second crucial element in this therapy—light—at the targeted tumor site… from highly focused fiber-optic lasers that have been inserted near the tumor. As the chlorophyll absorbs the light, it can then interact with the third component in the process—oxygen—to produce oxygen radicals. This interaction initiates a fast cascade of pathophysiological events that cause instantaneous closing of the blood vessels leading to the tumor, followed by oxygen and nutrient deprivation at the tumor site, as well as other active processes that kill tumor cells. In 24 to 48 hours, the tumor undergoes complete necrosis.
The treatment, called vascular-targeted photodynamic therapy or VTP, is a one-time 20- to 30-minute procedure. There have been no side effects in urination or sexual function.
The Israeli team foresees applications for breast, ovary, lung, and pancreas tumors. The latter has no effective treatment to date and has been a tragic death sentence.
As I read about these medical breakthroughs from Israel, my mind goes to Germany today, and yesteryear. The Nazis killed off their Jewish citizens, their best and their brightest, out of envy, greed, and spite.

Keeping our fingers crossed.
yes this is an amazing and Wonderful development...
and a quick, easy cure too!
My dad has been daling with prostate cancer for the last year. Thankfully they caught it early, but man would this be awesome!
HA HA HA! Take that, John not-effin-any-more Kerry!
Interesting if true.
I’m sure Arab men will eschew taking this treatment, since it originates from the “little Satan” and is the product of “pigs and monkeys.”
On the bright side, I am sure the BDS morons will forgo this treatment.
But OBAMA promised to cure cancer!!
Trials have been going on in NY since 2010 http://prostatecancerinfolink.net/2010/07/29/new-trial-of-vtp-for-localized-prostate-cancer-opens-at-five-us-centers/
Israel has given the world many gifts .
Too late for many of us, but this is great news if it works. Thanks for posting.
Guess I’ll stop taking Saw Palmetto which has been a long prescribed preventative for prostate problems in Europe. I’m 66 and have NO symptoms. Now if they will just find a cure for liver cirrhosis I can stop taking Milk Thistle, which I attribute to my yearly enzyme tests being normal even with my fondness for rum. I’d also appreciate if the Israelis could find a way to replace the brain cells I’ve killed.
Don't know all the little details but it took about a year and appears to have worked.
Did anyone ask big pharma if this was ok?....let’s see where this goes. Here’s hoping.
Israel also pioneered a new treatment for prostate enlargement that doesn’t destroy the prostate.
In humans the evolutionary pressure for evolving a higher intelligence is mostly driven by war, and war is driven by the emotion of vanity which drives envy. Although not always, the best and brightest usually survive war disproportionately. WWII drove a measurable intelligence bump in the surviving population.
Not to mention there is no camel piss involved.
