Although the medicine had developed very significantly in the past 50 years, it is still not that developed to cure every possible illness and most particularly the hardest ilness of them all no one wants to talk about – Cancer. Hearing this word sends the chills down the spine of many people. The reason many people fear cancer is that there is known cure for any of over 600 kinds of cancer. The modern medicine can only at the moment treat and completely heal everyone from cancer if the cancer itself was diagnosed in early stages or in situ.
