Can you give a cancer cell an equal but opposite cancer cell to cancel them out?

No: Waves can cancel one another, and antidotes neutralize poisons, but there are no anti-cancer cancer cells. This is the stuff of you're living in the 21st century and you owe it to yourself to become scientifically literate -- many of your neighbors are not. Use that inquiring mind to understand how your body actually works and how disease really happens. ...Read more
