Yoga 'cures cancer,' claims senior Indian government official...

A "cure for cancer" using yoga could be scientifically proven within a year, a senior Indian government official has claimed.

The head of India’s ministry for alternative medicine said researchers at a Bangalore institute were in the process of submitting research showing that yoga techniques could be used to prevent or arrest the disease.

“The institute has found a technique of yoga for the prevention and cure of cancer. They have proved it. The process uses only practising of special asanas [poses],” said Shripad Yasso Naik.

Speaking at a conference in Goa on Saturday, Mr Naik said the technique could be prescribed to patients within a year, once research documents submitted to the ministry had been verified, and could even replace chemotherapy.

 Dr HR Nagendra, chancellor of the Bangalore-based Swami Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana (S-VYASA), confirmed to the Sunday Express that the research was taking place. Full story..
