The idea that the exposure to germs and toxins can prevent cancer is a relatively new one. What most people don’t realize is that over a 100 years ago a doctor was curing cancer with vaccines made from killed bacterial preparations. William Coley in the 1890’s found that his crude vaccine was effective in many of his cancer patients.
Today, several companies are reintroducing Coley’s vaccine. One such company, MBVax Bioscience, in its initial study found that 24 out of 38 patients with advanced cancer have shown signs of regression. Another clinical trial by another group in London found that by using a vaccine from heat-killed Mycobacterium vaccae resulted in an increase in survival of four-and-a-half months.
More money needs to be spent on research which encouraging the immune system to do what it was designed to do – kill cancer cells.
