Accentia Biopharmaceuticals and Biovest International have developed a non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) vaccine that teaches the body’s immune system to identify and destroy tumor cells while leaving healthy tissue intact. The vaccine, calledBiovaxID, is already in Phase III clinical trials. (LINK)
So… here’s the real question: If you, gentle Christian reader, found out you had non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and you could only choose one of the following, which would you choose:
- Fervent Prayer
- Medicine that teaches your immune system to attack cancer cells
The correct answer, of course, is 2. Medicine that teaches your immune system to attack cancer cells. I feel confident that very few people would turn down the medicine. Oh, they’d probably pray on the sly. And a few of them would probably give God the credit when the medicine worked. But most people know deep down that medicine works a lot more reliably than God.
You know the funny thing? This medicine was developed entirely through use of the scientific method. Not a single prayer necessary. Isn’t it amazing how often that happens?
