Get the BBC & Guardian to report on Cancer drug sign now

Recently an old drug named dichloroacetate (DCA) was discovered to inhibit the growth of cancer cells. Application of the drug could save lives, however the clinical trials needed are unlikely to happen because the patent on the drug has expired. What this means is that pharmaceutical companies cannot make a profit from it. The BBC, Guardian and most of the mainstream media have neglected to report the story. This petition has been designed for the purpose of gathering attention and support for DCA, in order to make it newsworthy for the mainstream press to report about it.
