Astronomical Amounts of Money Are Spent on Cancer Drugs—sometimes with little to show for it!

The U.S. spends more per person on prescription drugs than any other nation.
Spending on cancer drugs has more than doubled since 2013 to over $60 billion annually.
New medications typically cost $90,000 to $300,000 a year.

Since 1992, 155 cancer drugs have been given fast-track approval by the FDA.  However, they haven’t turned out to be that effective -only about 20% of them have been found to extend lives.

Research on natural products: Researchers such as Ajay Goel, at City of Hope Cancer Center, continues to find new ways.  Natural ingredients such as melatonin, andrographis, curcumin and grape seed can stop cancer!
