Well I don't mind so long as you understand that I'm probably not going to put in the effort to respond much anymore. There's really nothing more to continue to be said, especially as we've already discussed a key point: that media hype vastly overstates new research. I'm not really sure what more you want to come from this thread other than perhaps continual debunking/explaining of news articles.

I'm pretty sure I've mentioned this above but one huge piece of advice would be to stop posting news articles, they're sensationalist crap 90% of the time. What is much better is to follow the primary source, if a news article references a new peer-reviewed paper then find that paper. They don't often give the title of a paper but if it mentions an author look at their publications list on the relevant university/institutional website. If it gives a journal go to that journal website and look at their recent publications. That will be immensely more helpful to both yourself and anyone else interested in reading about new treatments.
You're right from now on my postings will always include scientific papers. So I looked at the publications list of Dr. Aaron Avivi. It seems that most of his works are focused on the subterranean mole rat starting with a publication in 1999. After that he published something every year with the exception of 2000 and 2002 and it was almost always about mole rats. For example:

Methionine sulfoxide reductases and methionine sulfoxide in the subterranean mole rat (Spalax): Characterization of expression under various oxygen conditions

Transcription Pattern of p53-Targeted DNA Repair Genes in the Hypoxia-Tolerant Subterranean Mole Rat Spalax

Pronounced cancer resistance in a subterranean rodent, the blind mole-rat, Spalax: in vivo and in vitro evidence

I also found a patent for anti-cancer agents recently filed by Dr. Avivi:

Spalax fibroblast-derived anti-cancer agents
