Prostate Cancer question?
06/13/2009 at 06:13 AM

Was just informed that a friend has Prostate Cancer. He is in his mid 70’s.
Just did a quick check of conventional treatments that his doctor might recommend, there is nothing there that looks like it be would a whole bunch of fun or effective.
I don’t know if he is open to alternative treatment, but I was wondering what the experts here would recommend.

The last Reader's Digest (which is not Lancet, but oh well) said that many cancers are not as big a deal as we tend to make them. I was SHOCKED!

The human body is made up of billions of cells, each one of which is derived from a single fertilised 'egg cell'. However, the body's cells are not all identical. There are at least two hundred distinct cell types, all with different features and functions, such as neurons (nerve cells), liver cells, skin cells, and so on. These specialised cells are the body's mature or fully differentiated, cells, all of which are derived from their common ancestors, stem cells. Stem cell therapy has the potential to revolutionise the treatment of a variety of human conditions. Rather than addressing the symptoms of a particular disease or condition, stem cell therapy seeks to address the cause of the condition, to effect repair or reversal of the disease state through the regeneration of the affected tissue. ReNeuron's development programs seek to exploit the potential of stem cell therapy. Stem cell therapy offers particular potential in areas of significant unmet, or poorly met, medical need. Diseases of the brain, such as stroke and Parkinson's disease, can dramatically reduce quality of life. They consequently represent major healthcare costs, particularly in terms of long-term care. There are no treatments that effectively address the causes of these diseases. Stem cell transplantation therapy offers the potential to alleviate the symptoms of, or cure, these diseases and many others. and for more details about this tehrapy treating cancereous diseases also click on and to know diseases treated by stem cell tehrapy click and to have blogs about these stem cell treatments visit:
