Change your diet. That simple.

SammytheStampede says:

All cancer cells end up being squamous cells, try vitamin b17. Do your research.

Steve Collins says:

Weed cuers cander

D. Dye says:

There are definitely cures for cancer out there. It's naive to believe that NOBODY over all these years has found something that beats cancer. It's just that Big Pharma and related cronies would lose too much money if they allowed a cheap, effective, readily available treatment to become widely known. I learned a lot of info about this from this: http://bit.ly/2tmvtTt

Noah Smith says:

I went through chemotherapy

akilan kanagaraj says:

I'm afraid now

Max Smith says:

This might be a stupid question but if our body builds immunity to stuff over time why dont we build an immunity to cancers.

AetherMinecraft225 says:

Someone need to edit this video into something related to comment section

Touya Shinjitsu says:

This video gave me cancer

The white Night says:

Easy because we're dumb

dj69918 says:

Cancer is caused by excessive carbohydrate consumption. The problem is that no one will believe this and would rather die from cancer than to try it.Good luck America.

Fabian Modz says:

Chemotherapy costs €/$/£1,000 to 100,000 and when the cure might come it'll probably cost 100 to 500. So this needs to change!

The1Americanpride1 says:

There ARE cures for cancer its called NOT USING DRUGS AND RADIATION, there have been several people healed from cancer through herbal(natural) remedies(lifestyle change), it was even tried to be introduced to the medical community but they continuously denied because if introduced the medical industry would loose BILLIONS a year,…. Think, whats a smarter buisness model, one a done or bandade and continuous income source from repeated treatments….doesnt take a brain surgeon

Nutronco says:

If you are seeking All-In-One ready to go natural and Non-GMO nutritional supplements that are scientifically designed for people concerned with maintaining overall body health and function, patients undergoing chemotherapy, and post chemotherapy., check

Hypennik says:

Tfw you realize that there actually isn't a cure for cancer

Daniel Benjamin says:
