Tobacco - either smoking, or chewing .. is supposed to be injurious to health. But, not anymore....

Researchers at Stafford University, London have declared recently that TOBACCO plant may actually offer means to treat a certain form of CANCER.

Yes. You have read correctly.

Tobacco plants are being used as FACTORIES for an antibody chemical specific to the cells which cause follicular B-Cell lymphoma. These antibodies are put into a patient with the disease, to PRIME the body's immune system to attach any cell carrying them.

That is what I call a turnover.

Tobacco is considered the number one reason for all cancer diseases. And I believe that it is.

I say that tobacco is extremely bad for health. I could agree with you, stating that some components of the tobacco as a plant might bee useful in treatment for certain form of cancer. But that's it!

However, Tobacco remains extremely dangerous for our health.

Its the same with all medical preventions though. All vaccinations and innoculations have a bit of the disease that they are in the long term preventing to immunise the body. Quite clever really! alien

Yes, the principle is the same with the tobacco too. Maybe it works like all the vaccinations, meaning that they are giving you a little bit of cancer, so that your body starts to produce the anti corps that will help prevent getting ill.

Medicine is very inventive, you just never know what they come up next!

If taken in a different form, I'm sure tobacco could be beneficial in someway or another. It's like heroine and morphine, they both come from the same family - just used in different ways.

Tobacco is useful if used in its raw plant form. Its great for rubbing on scratches and burns and other minor external injuries. I grew up in the south, and a lot of old ladies recommended that as a home remedy. However, for use in prevention of Cancer? Thats a bid ridiculous. Why use one thing to prevent ONE thing, which would cause a million other problems? The downsides GREATLY outweigh the upside.

That's like saying chemotherapy isn't good because of it's side effects. Cancer currently has no cure, but a prevention would be so much better than a few side effects.

No-one says that Tobacco is dangerous to your health. But smoking is. Well i believe that it can cure certain forms of Cancer. It just needs to be developed. It will take some time but i think it will be done some day.

I think it's rubbish. Cancer isn't something like chickenpox, your body can't become immune from suffering a small outbreak or anything like that. Having cancer once doesn't reduce your chances of getting it again.
