10. What's the point

 

Why post anything at all if you're just looking for people to nod in agreement? Warpy is entirely right. There is not better option if you want to cure things like cancer. Recently, a drug called fenbendazol was accidentally found to have amazing prospects of treating and preventing aggressive cancers. It is a de wormer used in livestock and other animals. They were studying the most aggressive form of brain cancer in rats when they got a pin worm infestation. The used the deformed and found the could no longer to get tumors to grow. This stuff has been around since the 70s and cost next to nothing with almost no side effects and has recently been approved for use in humans as an anti parasitic. Now they're testing it's effectiveness in humans against cancer. Without animal testing, where would that be? Unfortunately, the rights to the drug has been sold to a major company that will probably jack the price up so high for something that is so cheap.
