In the 1960s, Dr. Judah Folkman suggested that tumors cannot grow without a blood supply to nourish them -- and that if that supply could be blocked, tumor growth might be stopped. The idea was so simple and so revolutionary, many in the cancer research community dismissed it. After years of detective work, a scientist in Folkman's lab found a substance that in mice has wiped away tumors without side effects or drug resistance.
