Scientists unveil genetically-modified HIV strain they claim can cure cancer

(NaturalNews) There is no shortage of bizarre new cancer treatment prospectives emerging from conventional medicine these days, especially as the multi-billion dollar cancer industry continues to ignore the many natural treatment options already available to cancer patients. But the latest alleged treatment possibility involving a genetically-modified (GM) strain of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) takes the cake as one of the most outlandish and logically incomprehensible ideas yet, at least as far as the long-term health of cancer patients is concerned.

Doctors from the University of Pennsylvania have reportedly been successful in removing a class of immune cells known as T-cells from cancer patients in order to genetically modify them with HIV, and reintroduce them back into the body. Presented at a recent meeting of the American Society of Hematology, the team's findings revealed that, when inserted into normal T-cells, disabled GM HIV can actually cause a person's immune system to attack cancer cells, effectively killing, and eventually eradicating, them from the bodies of cancer patients.

Since the experimental procedure appears to be somewhat of a success, having already been successfully administered to a seven-year-old leukemia patient, some researchers and cancer experts are now hailing it as a wonder treatment. Dr. Michael Boyer, for instance, who heads the transplant program at the University of Utah's Huntsman Cancer Institute, told reporters that the procedure may be a "home run" for patients who have "failed every other type of therapy."

Genetically-modified T-cells remain forever inside cancer patients' bodies

But according to KSL.com, these modified T-cells literally multiply with one another to create a "cancer-targeted army" that roams the body indefinitely in search of malignant cells that it can destroy. What this means, in other words, is that once GM HIV cells are injected into cancer patients, they become a permanent fixture, where they have the potential to cause untold, long-term harm.

Based on the data, the experimental therapy does appear to be 50 percent effective in killing cancer cells, at least in the short term. But as you might already be aware, conventional cancer treatments often "eliminate" cancer for only a few years anyway, before the disease eventually comes back with a vengeance. Even so, researchers still claim that, because the HIV virus itself is deactivated, it will not lead to the development of AIDS or other autoimmune disorders, and is thus safe to use when all other options have failed.

However, because the therapy involves the use of GM cells -- no long-term safety studies have, or likely ever will, be conducted on GM HIV -- the systemic physiological damage that will likely occur in patients who receive it is highly concerning. We already know, of course, that GM food can cause gut bacteria to indefinitely reproduce toxins (http://www.naturalnews.com/028635_GMOs_bacteria.html), so what is to stop GM HIV from, say, eventually mutating and attacking the body's healthy cells as if they were foreign invaders?

If this is not bad enough, the idea of genetically engineering a deadly virus to attack another serious health condition is strikingly similar to the plot line of the 2007 remake of I Am Legend, a post-apocalyptic science fiction film in which a man-made virus designed to cure cancer mutates and eventually kills off most of humanity, while turning the rest into ravenous zombies. Is this the future reality we are being subconsciously programmed to accept, particularly now as this exact same scenario appears to be playing itself out in real life?
