This is an incredible claim but if true, it could save a lot of people.
“Doctors appear to have safely and successfully treated patients with cancer of the blood and bone marrow with a combination of arsenic and vitamin A, according to long-term study in China. In an article published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the doctors said they prescribed the regimen to 85 patients and monitored them for an average of 70 months.
Of these, 80 patients went into complete remission and the researchers did not find any associated long-term problems in their heart or lungs and there was no development of secondary cancers.
“Two years after their treatment, the patients had arsenic blood and urine levels well below safety limits, and only slightly higher than controls,” they wrote. “The treatment was effective … and worked better than either drug given alone.” The authors recommended that the treatment be given to patients with blood and bone marrow cancer, or acute promyelocytic Leukemia.” – Source
