The Man Who Cured Cancer

Dr. David Vesely may have discovered a cure for cancer. His approach is unorthodox and has not yet been tested on humans, but it shows so much promise that he was awarded a $10,000 prize, the Service to America Career Achievement Medal, and was honored recently by the University of Southern Florida where he teaches.

Apparently the heart produces hormones. Vesely discovered this fact, and then discovered three hormones manufactured by the heart. One of those hormones kills cancer cells.

If the rat research translates into humans, then a cure for cancer could be as close as three years away. Critics say that if this hormone is produced by the heart, why isn't it already working to cure cancer? But perhaps the quantity of the hormone is insufficient in those who get cancer.
