Newest cancer treatment: shark's blood!

Here's an unorthodox way to help slow down the effects of cancer: a nice tall glass of shark's blood. Sound gross? It is! But it also might just be effective.

The reason that shark's blood might be the next hot cancer treatment is because sharks, like humans, have antibodies in their blood. The antibodies in sharks blood, like sharks themselves, just so happen to be really, really tough. In addition, because the blood is so resilient, it could survive through the acidic environment of our stomachs, getting to us where we need it. Now this treatment would not cure cancer; it would merely slow it down. But heck, if you could pop a pill of sharks blood and slow down cancer, why would you say no?
