This article describes the latest research in China on treating tumors with electro-acupuncture.
"Electrically charged acupuncture needles that can significantly reduce the size of tumours could open the way for a safe, low-cost cancer treatment, according to a new study."
"A team of Chinese scientists adapted the traditional technique to create a form of 'electro-chemotherapy' to treat laboratory mice with brain tumours, shrinking them to less than 1 per cent of their initial size. The mice were given a twice-daily, 10-minute dose of the treatment over three consecutive days. Sixteen days after the treatment started the tumours, which were around the size of a bean, had shrunk to just 0.38 per cent of their original size – scarcely visible to the naked eye."
