Cure cancer with Duct Tape

Tumor starvation

Cancer and other chronic illnesses may be a struggle for resources between the human body and a coalition of other bodies, viral, bacterial and fungal. The one battlefield the human body will always win on is transferring resources around physical space. So duct taping the skin above a tumor will starve the tumor of resources. From there it is a long distance race to see which entity can survive. Use strategies like exercising the affected area, extreme temperatures, anything that the human body can stand by allocating resources but the tumor might not be able to. Dr. Jesus to the rescue.

       I'm confused. What does the skin have to do with nourishing a tumor? Tumors are fed from within. Below the tape. Now if you said wrap the tumor in duct tape, I might agree. The skin doesn't feed anything. It protects only. Right? RIGHT? Maybe not right, but sounds good.

       So it's a tourniquet?

       Oh, I thought above meant in height above the tumor, not above, as in stopping the circulation to an actual tumor. But that doesn't make sense either, cause tumors often are attached, or part of a major organ. So cutting of supply to it would also kill the organ. I don't know, for someone who is supposed to know all, this doesn't reek of knowledge. Is there a doctor in the house? And I don't mean DrBob, either.

       I thought all tumors were connected to the skin somehow. So much for saving the world.

       Well then your heart was in the right place, just not your skin, so to speak.

       But would it work on skin cancer?

       If you can get to the tumor well enough that you could tape off the blood vessels, you could also simply excise the tumor.

       " human body will always win on is transferring resources around physical space. So duct taping the skin above a tumor will starve the tumor "   

       And the award for a great leap of logic goes to...

       Your vector was perfect. If you'd started from the right place you'd have ended somewhere brilliant.

       Perhaps you were thinking of pimples.

       Is there anything duct tape can't fix?   

       I'm not saying it can be used for time travel, but nobody's ever proved that it can't. You've gotta keep an open mind about these things.

       Warts are said to possibly be cured by duct tape. I'll tell you by experience, that's an old wives' tale.
xkuntay, Jul 04 2014
  

       Well, old wives tend to have lots of warts.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jul 05 2014
  

       Hmm, with the greatest regret I have to say this might work, but only because unravelling sticky tape generates x-rays.   

       So, a sufficient number of duct-tape x-ray units might just be aligned to zap the right bit.   

       So, the divine one might actually have come up with something plausible, monkeys on typewriters etc.....
