    Not quite! There are several misleading elements to the piece you’re citing. For example, several of the studies are listed as having been published in the “National Library of Medicine”, but this is merely an abstracting service. The quality of journals represented in the National Library of Medicine vary. The list of 20 includes articles that aren’t really about cancer (such as #2, which is about neurodegeneration). The most important thing is that most or perhaps all of these studies are limited to in vitro observations – a lot of drugs kill tumors in vitro; the trick is finding those that kill tumors in vivo – and specifically, in living humans.

    Overall, though, there is enough evidence to warrant further study. But lets hold off on the “cures cancer” propaganda. No evidence of that yet exists.
