New Delhi, India
On World Cancer Day, as the government talked about initiatives for a more integrated cancer treatment service, it also unveiled a plan for the introduction of the bioresonance (electrodes) machines. The machines, which have generated controversy all over the world, are being tested by the government with an aim to introduce them at Delhi State Cancer Institute (DSCI).
Said Delhi health minister, Kiran Walia, “We will be sending the machine for testing at the ICMR as well as the AIIMS quality centre before its installation. Only if we get approval, will we go ahead with the decision.” The decision comes after the machines, which were tested on two doctors in Aruna Asaf Ali Hospital, proved to be “effective”.
“The doctors were very impressed as they gave up smoking. We hope the same results will be shown if the machine is introduced in DSCI,”said Walia.
The presentation made by the German company at the event organized to mark the day certainly seemed to have impressed the gathering, which included Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit.
Incidentally, the machine makers claim only two sittings are required, on consecutive days, in which the machine, emitting alternate current, is attached to the body for around 40 minutes. Walia added that the machine is used in the US after FDA approval.
“We want the union ministry to also approve the device before we install it,” she added. Speaking at the occasion, Dikshit underlined the need of “coordinated efforts of the government and private sector to ensure an affordable cancer treatment.”
