“The video which shows that cancer cells are attracted to gold and detests garlic is clearly a fraud aiming at jesting the stupidity of human intelligence.

“Some people may take advantage on the video and make their own assumptions for certain agenda,” he said in a statement at his social media.

According to him, the cancer cells ‘die’ after being surgically removed from the body as nutrients and blood supplies have been cut off from the cells.

“Therefore, when a cancer patient dies, the cancer cells in their body die too,” he emphasized.

According to Rushdan, the cancer cells removed would then be placed into formalin solution so that it can be fixated and it would be submitted to the pathology laboratory for examinations. We would not leave any cancer cells behind, or give them to the patient or their families.

“The pathologists can analysed the cells as this is one of the reason we conduct a surgery, besides treating the patients,” he said.

On the gold, he said, platinum is often used as jewelleries in women and it costs more than gold.

“Do you know that some anti-cancer drugs such as Cisplatin, Carboplatin and Oxaliplatin are platinum based? Studies also show that gold (Gold (III)/Au) has anti-cancer properties despite it is still under studies.

“Drugs with platinum, silver and gold essence are known as metallodrugs,” he explained. – MalaysiaGazette

  1. I feel that it is some shell-less Molluscan animal, which is sensitive to chemicals having strong and pungent smell like GARLIC, hence it moves away from it. But this does not explain its attraction and movement towards a golden ring. No cell, cancerous or non-malignant removed from any human organ will have mobility and move like a live organism. In my opinion, it is a video created to mislead people like a vast majority of WhatsApp messages do. I shall be very happy to know more facts about this video myself.

  2. An Indian TV Channel by name CNN IBN which causes investigation of such messages which go viral and informs whether it is TRUE or FAKE, has investigation into this

    video and has given the following report:
    Viral Sach: Cancer cells ‘afraid’ of garlic and ‘attracted’ to gold?

    NEW DELHI: A video has emerged on social media showing an experiment which ‘proves’ that cancer cells are ‘afraid’ of garlic and ‘attracted’ to gold.

    The viral video shared on Whatsapp and social media shows a substance, which it calls as a ‘cancer tumor’, placed in a plate. Whenever a garlic clove is brought near to the substance, the ‘cancer tumor’ moves away and if a gold ring is placed near to it, the tumor gets attracted towards it.

    The video concludes that if a person eats garlic he has less tendency to get cancer while people who wear gold jewellery may be more pronged to the deadly disease. The video has garnered a lot of public response across social media.

    However, doctors have rejected what the video claims.

    “I haven’t seen this type of tumor in my life. The substance shown in the video cannot be a cancer tumor,” said Dr. Anshuman Kumar, a cancer expert and Director of Dharmshila hospital.

    Dr. Kumar said, “The way this substance is moving, it resembles a jellyfish. People who have made this video are spreading rumours by taking a sea anemone and calling it a cancer tumor.”

    “To run, a motile organ is required and tumor or cancer cells don’t have it,” he said.

    Hence, the video turns out to be FAKE.
