In this week's medical dollars with Dr.
Manny Alvarez -- been forty years since President Nixon declared the war on cancer.
Yet the disease is still killing one -- five America that's what progress is being made it what are the signs it we're winning this war.
Managing editor for Fox News health dot com -- house.
-- with more aggravating.
-- -- special coming out yeah this weekend.
How do you even this is personal we talked about that hadn't even get your arms around -- because there's so many different types of cancer song.
That we are winning the war and some in which -- now.
Look I I think you know Friday is this big national.
Event that say -- -- -- stamping out cancer around all the networks fox is participating so this is a perfect opportunity.
To bring on this special which airs on Sunday at 3 PM and nine and 9 PM here and Fox News Channel.
And we called -- winning the war on cancer because I think it when you see this.
Documentary if you will clearly reflect that.
That the since President Nixon announced that this is something that was important -- to the American public and -- Obama reiterated that also.
There have been some major fundamental.
Views about what cancer -- And we interviewed all the top scientists around the country.
From the National Institutes of Health to the CDC and you know that.
Canisters to it in and in Washington.
And you clearly we'll see how these -- -- -- looking -- cancer.
More delicate chronic disease rather than a death sentence and that's very optimistic because I think that indeed we are winning the war.
The biology of cancers since the genome project -- several years ago has been clearly identified.
They you know and we all these scientists know exactly what cancer is they know exactly how -- Works.
They still have to figure out many things of course as to why some of these cells become cancerous and they tend to -- -- become tumors which ultimately.
If they don't get diagnosed early in the game can kill you.
The treatments that are evolving our our magical in on the first part of our special for us is we're going to be looking at.
-- very good research and treatment that is being utilized today for the treatment of melanoma.
Melanoma kids kills thousands of people especially young people because this is not an -- related type of cancer.
They have figure out ways to use you -- immune system.
In order to activated so that your own body cells will kill the cancer cells and they getting a 100% cure rates.
So you you'll see a lot of that.
Science very well explain on our special.
On the same thing -- nano technology and on nano technology is going to be the whole mark of medicine in the next decade or so.
This is we use biology now for the first time.
And you introduced biology to engineering and the engineers.
Will create devices that are so tiny.
That they will be embedded in your body in order to bring those types of therapies and medications -- -- -- get side effects.
That's cool -- that we should we showed a little hood Qualcomm but they're they're working on that -- and tell you the date your cells mutate into a cancerous cell.
But I plan to chip in new protein and a gate mutates you don't know but so -- -- an.
It's an incredible act and -- and because if you think about you know -- you -- you look at -- you know -- when when when the Adams -- -- -- the electrons were discovered.
And they were introduced to the engineers what what do we get we got the revolutions of cellphones and ipads and computers and all that I mean that's basically what happened.
Is being introduced to engineering and ultimately that combo is going to.
Lead you know all of this nano technology which is going to be -- every day and every day event in in the next ten years or so people watch that watch especially felt better.
But I think people are gonna learn a lot I hope people that will go to the Fox News health dot com website give us your comments because.
By the -- we launched our new Fox News health dot com website yes.
Today is the most beautiful thing -- that much of that letter that they go all right now to -- Broadcom clink on the health tab you'll find the best health care website.
In -- girl.
In the Borough in the past and they've.
Beaten -- for anything just the site is unit I was doing this.
Is that really bad for you now you know what that comes from what that's airing -- Jones is that -- don't do that for us.
Although it is that meant by the way you know it is it is admit that you get our writers is something that I -- it does feel so -- and other federal annoying you know people that are listening you know what's real.
But the pops -- -- -- back into the.
Back and -- making -- my question.
