PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) – With all the bad news coming out of Penn State in recent weeks, here’s a story you may have missed.

As Dr. Meyers tells KDKA-AM’s Larry and John, the trials they have conducted have shown a nearly 100 percent effectiveness in eliminating cancer, and with more research and funding, they could be using this method on humans soon.
