Striking Cancer With Thunder – Thunderstruck

Posted by terrepruitt on December 8, 2021

I was recently taking a class and the instructor said that AC/DC’s Thunderstruck helps chemotherapy be more effective. I thought about stopping the class (video) to see if I heard correctly, but I was in the middle of it and I didn’t want to interrupt it/myself so I decided to just look it up after class. I was hoping I remembered. Well, I did. That was such an odd claim to me, I wanted to see what it was about. What I found was that there is a specific drug that was found to be assisted by AC/DC’s Thunderstruck.

Are you familiar with the song?

In 2016 scientists at the University of South Australia found that vibration was the key to best getting the drug to where it needed to go. They have another method but it was not as efficient as rock music vibration. As you can imagine there is a lot of music but out of their samplings AC/DC’s Thunderstruck did the job the best.

Since I don’t really understand the details enough to write clearly about them and to be accurate and coherent I would just have to copy the articles I read I am just going to list them, in case you want more details. Surprisingly – to me – there aren’t that many or, more accurately, I couldn’t find that many related to the subject. I figured that once scientists knew the specific vibration they needed then they would have designed something to do it, but I didn’t find much about vibrations and chemotherapy so I am not sure that it has taken off.

Still interesting, though.

I believe that vibrations can be good for us . . . I can cite cats’ purring as an example, I just didn’t know that vibrations could help medicine be more effective.  What do you think?
