Submission + - Ham Radio Operator Finds Cure For Cancer (latimes.com) 5

CirReal writes: "John Kanzius, K3TUP, himself suffering from cancer with nine months to live, used nanotechnology and a radio transmitter to kill cancer cells. "Kanzius did not have a medical background, not even a bachelor's degree, but he knew radios. He had built and fixed them since he was a child, collecting transmitters, transceivers, antennas and amplifiers, earning an amateur radio operator license.

Reseachers "recently killed 100% of cancer cells grown in the livers of rabbits, using Kanzius' method.""
