 There may have just been an incredible medical breakthrough for cancer. And it happened-- in Pennsylvania. In a project 20 years in the making, University of Pennsylania scientists took white blood cells, genetically engineered them to stick to cancer tumors, and injected them back into the bodies of 3 patients with advanced forms of Leukemia. All 3 were healed within weeks. The research was too risky to get government support, but now that it has worked it's caught the attention of the entire scientific community.
