Could ecstasy cure cancer?

blue-pills.jpg

It seems that every week we're told that something new cures, prevents or even causes cancer. From chocolate to soda, plants to animals, the media would have us believe that we have to spend our lives in small bubbles, unable to touch anything.

Now scientists from Birmingham University have found evidence to prove that ecstasy could actually help to cure cancer. They discovered that the drug could well treat or significantly slow down the growth of some illnesses such as leukaemia and lymphoma.

It seems obvious that something which dramatically alters the way your brain works so much is bound to have a pretty huge effect on other parts of your body, whether that's for better or for worse.

Let's just hope this isn't another over-hyped flash in the pan and that it could one day help people.
