Woops! Study Accidentally Finds Chemotherapy Makes Cancer Far Worse

Woops! Study Accidentally Finds Chemotherapy Makes Cancer Far Worse
A team of researchers looking into why cancer cells are so resilient accidentally stumbled upon a far more important discovery. While conducting their research, the team discovered that chemotherapy actually heavily damages healthy cells and subsequently triggers them to release a protein that sustains and fuels tumor growth . Beyond that, it even makes the tumor highly resistant to future treatment . Reporting their findings in the journal Nature Medicine , the scientists report that the findings were ‘completely unexpected’. Finding evidence of significant DNA damage when examining the effects of chemotherapy on tissue derived from men with prostate cancer, the writings are a big slap in the face to mainstream medical organizations who have been pushing chemotherapy as the only option to cancer patients for years. The news comes after it was previously ousted by similarly-breaking research that expensive cancer drugs not only fail to treat tumors, but actually make them far worse.
