#147 – One Answer To Cancer

November 6, 2016 // 0 Comments

Cancer, that highly complex catch all term for literally hundreds of different conditions has a single natural cure. Almost too good to be true right? Myles and James recently meet up in person in Manchester to among other thing watch a shitty movie ‘One Answer to Cancer’ an Australian attempt at spreading bullshit into the world. The movie distrusts the chemical Aldera a treatment for cancer that has been heavily promoted in Oz. But has a massive love for the dangerous quack [...]
