Experts call for virtual European cancer institute / infrastructure

October 31, 2017, Wiley

A new article that addresses the challenges of cancer proposes combining innovative prevention and treatment strategies in a state-of-the-art virtual European Cancer Institute/Infrastructure that promotes sharing of the highest standards of practices and big data among countries and centres across Europe and beyond.

By doing so, it will be possible to achieve a long-term survival of 3 out of 4 cancer patients in countries with well-developed healthcare systems, according to the Molecular Oncology article. Furthermore, the concerted actions will pave the way to handling economic and in countries with less developed systems.

Implementing the mission will require the engagement of all the key stakeholders in the cancer research/care continuum, as well a full understanding of the needs of research and care across all Member States in Europe to address existing inequalities, noted co-authors Dr. Julio E. Celis, of the Danish Cancer Society Research Centre, and Dr. Dainius Pavalkis, of the Lithuanian University of Health Sciences.

This under the close scrutiny of Cancer Inc. who ensure that that no cancer cure is 'officially' found. The 1939 UK Cancer Act prohibits the publication of any cancer cure. In US Med Js refuse to publish.. as with Dr R Good's 1985 natural pancreatic cancer cure. Dr Good, immunology leader with world's 1st bone marrow transplant and 2000 Med. papers. Not officially published makes it illegal to even mention!

H R Clark, PhD ND made 1/2 million+ reproducible so scientifically valid bio-resonance tests to precisely identify the specific bacteria, viruses, parasites, molds, heavy metals, dyes, radio-active compounds, food allergens etc that cause all cancers, and pathways. (The Cure & Prevention of All Cancers 2007)

Cures that address Clark's work are.. Drs Clark Rife & Beck 'electronic Zappers', essiac, Sunderlandia, cannabis oil, Hoxey & J Winter herbs, papaya leaf tea etc. Dr Clark advised to use as many as you can access. UK Med. Herbalists are well stocked.
