New Cancer Drug Is So Effective Against Tumors, the FDA Approved It Immediately

New Cancer Drug Is So Effective Against Tumors, the FDA Approved It Immediately is about Merck Keytruda.

Apparently "Approved It Immediately" in a title is an exaggeration.
They have not shared neither cost nor duration of the approval process.

Ontario-grown red onions are the most effective at killing colon and breast cancer cells compared to other types of onions, reports a new study. This is because of the onions' high levels of quercetin and anthocyanin. As part of this project, the researchers are also the first to develop a non-toxic way to extract quercetin from onions making it more suitable for consumption.

Protect Yourself: Get a Second Medical Opinion

"Fraudulent oncologist Dr. Farid Fata falsely diagnoses hundreds of patients and inflicts excessive cancer treatments on them — all for the $17 million he gets from insurance companies and Medicare. American Greed’s Scott Cohn reports on the importance of getting another doctor’s opinion when you get a serious diagnosis."
