For the human practices portion of our project we put up a survey online, getting 136 people to respond to the questions listed below:
1. Have you or someone close to you ever been affected by cancer?
2. Would you be comfortable having bacteria injected into your bloodstream if it could potentially treat or cure cancer?
3. Would you still want to undergo this treatment if it meant suffering side effects such as fatigue and/or flu-like symptoms (i.e. nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, etc.)?
4. Assuming similar success rates, would you prefer to undergo chemotherapy, or this bacterial treatment option?
5. Would you choose this treatment option if the duration of the treatment was the same as that of traditional forms of treatment, such as chemotherapy?
6. If this form of treatment took twice as long as traditional treatment options, but with higher success rates, would you still opt for this treatment?
7. During treatment, would you be comfortable limiting/cutting out all physical activity?
8. Would you support your tax dollars going towards developing this type of treatment?
9. Identify your age range: 14-18, 19-24, 25-32, 41-51, 52+

We turned our survey information into pie charts and the results are as follows:

We found that openness for the funding for this type of project had an overwhelming 95% approval. The majority of the people who’d taken the survey were open to trying our type of treatment, especially if it proved to be more effective than chemotherapy. The one major problem most people had, related to the function of the lactic acid promoter in the body. People were concerned about how much physical activity they would have to limit for what periods of time.
