Erie, Pa. -- Every 54 seconds, an American dies from the effects of cancer. For those who survive, traditional chemotherapy and radiation treatments are sometimes more brutal than the disease itself.

These negative side effects could potentially be eliminated by the Kanzius Noninvasive Radiowave Cancer Treatment, which will be the topic when Mark A. Neidig Sr., executive director of the Kanzius Cancer Research Foundation, visits Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, for the School of Engineering’s Spring 2014 Speaker Event.

Neidig’s talk, titled “Combining Science and Medicine to Destroy Cancer Cells without Collateral Damage,” will be held at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 8, in room 180 of the Jack Burke Research and Economic Development Center, 5101 Jordan Road. The presentation is free and open to the public, and free parking will be available in the deck located behind Burke Center, off Technology Drive.

The Kanzius Cancer Research Foundation works to create awareness of the Kanzius Noninvasive Radiowave Cancer Treatment. The treatment was developed by the late John Kanzius, an Erie native and radio broadcast engineer with a keen understanding of the power of radiowaves.

Research at the University of Texas’ MD Anderson and Baylor College of Medicine, the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and the University of California in Davis has proven the Kanzius theory, and data will be submitted to the FDA this year to seek approval for human trials in pancreatic and liver cancer patients.
