Researchers Find Salt Could Be Used To Treat Cancer
BOSTON (CBS) — There may be a new weapon to attack cancer cells with less harm to the patient, and it you can probably find it right on your kitchen table. It’s salt, which is also called sodium chloride. Researchers at the University of Georgia used sodium chloride nano-particles as a so-called “Trojan Horse” to deliver cancer-killing sodium and chloride ions into cancer cells. But they say the treatment isn’t toxic because when the nano-particles degrade, they just turn into salt. In fact, when they injected these salt nano-particles into tumors in mice, the sodium chloride nano-particles su...

The sudden success of these measures is not an accident. They are the result of a concerted new strategy by abortion opponents, researchers have found.
