Now I know this thread will cause alot of debate and arguement before it is over with. But it was something someone in the medical field told me and it makes alot of sense. But it also sounds like a conspiracy theory. Why there will never be a cure for cancer... 1) As long as they have been researching this, why have they only been able to find a treatment that has a 30% or less sucess rate? 2) Ever watch the news and here of a medical break through that is later recanted or never mentioned again? What up with that? 3) Medical science will say that a certain something, vitimin or food, helps defend the body of cancer cells, only to deny it 6 months later, why...? Currently, cancer and aids are the 2 biggest money makers in the medical field. But don't get me wrong, I'm not blaming the medical field. But as we go, you'll see who to point a finger at. Currently there are 100 of millions of dollars of cancer reseach done through donations etc... There are special schooling for people to work in this field. You have the school, all it's employees, and it's students who all pay taxes. Then you have hospitals. Just about every hospital has a cancer ward. Special people who run it. Doctors trained to treat it. And special equipment to treat it. All of this taxes are collected on... Then we have the companies who make the spacial radiation equipment... there's the drug companies. Those who specialize in cancer drug only... Then there's the insurance companies. Since I traced it all to money. Now how much would be lost if a cure was found? How many jobs gone? How much cancer equipment would now be useless? How much drugs would become obsolete? How many hospitals would close? etc... etc....

Actually, this might not be CTSTDT material, there's a lot of corporate greed tainting healthcare and I wouldn't be surprised if there is some truth in this...

Isn't there a prevention for breast cancer which cannot be administered because it uses a gene patented by some millionaire new zealander?

You know, 30 years ago, the fatality rate from childhood leukemia was about 90%. Now it's about 10%. Doesn't that just make you SICK?

And this is why we never invented vaccines to keep people from getting sick, or antibiotics to keep them out of the hospital. It's why, if you're overweight, your doctor never nags the shit out of you about diet and exercise, or tells smokers to stop smoking. It's a CONSPIRACY.

I've always suspected certain charities of being government fronts for stealing extra cash from the public. I mean, look at poverty-stricken Africa. How long have we been donating money to them, how much money have we gave? How much has Africa changed?

Thank you all for proving that WE NEED TO PUBLICIZE HEALTH CARE!

Now how much would be lost if a cure was found? How many jobs gone? How much cancer equipment would now be useless?

None of it you dumbfuck, the... oh why bother

False. The biggest moneymaker in the medical field is actually plastic surgery. A handful of plastic surgeons can bring in enough customers to fund an entire hospital.

Cancer is a tricky bastard of a disease.

Wow, you are telling it like it's just one form of cancer, when it's not. Most forms are treatable. Others are not. But you have to remember that none of them would be treatable if there was no money given to research. Also, your argument could be used against vaccination and aids prevention, which is just plain stupid.

Of all the fucktard conspiracy theories, I hate this one the most. And I loathe the fucktards like this who perpetuate it.

There will never be A cure for cancer, because there is not A cancer. It is not one disease. There are dozens, if not hundreds, of different kinds of cancers - depending on where they arise, how fast they grow, what kind of cells are over-produscing.

I would give several important body parts to be able to reach through the monitor and SLAP the SHIT out of people who post trash like this.

They have no idea what the fuck they're talking about and should do some basic fucking research before they vomit this vile shit all over the place.

Ikester isn't aware of how many different kinds of cancer there are, how many different causes they have, and how treatments for one form don't automatically translate into treatments for another.
