In 2011, it was estimated that more than half a million women died due to breast cancer according to the World Health Organization. And nearly a quarter of a million (240,000) additional new cases were expected for the year of 2016. Although generally considered as a disease of the developed countries, nearly half the cases of breast cancer worldwide were in less developed countries and over 58 per cent of worldwide deaths occurred in less developed countries.
A well known method to combat cancer is chemotherapy, whereby it radiates all cells in a certain area and does not specify cancerous cells.
That’s why a new study in Amsterdam is so impressive since it’s shown results that it can destroy tumors in as little as 11 days without the use of chemo!
Cancer cells are notorious for growing and dividing rapidly, thus the use of chemotherapy has long been thought to be most effective since it reduces the speed in which it grows.
But there can be numerous side effects affiliated with chemotherapy since it can reduce the growth of other quick-growing cells such as those in the mouth and stomach (intestines,) and cells that make your hair grow.
At the European Breast Cancer Conference in Amsterdam, professor Nigel Bundred revealed research that illustrated a game-changing effectiveness in targeting cancer cells.
The researchers found some stunning evidence when they used the two drugs simultaneously before surgery and chemotherapy.
