Cancer is a ************ of a blanket term. It's used to describe about 200-300 similar but seperate diseases. You can find ways to treat one kind of cancer, but curing all cancer at once is pretty much impossible.

It's still a good point though.

But... how would they know how to cure cancer if they don't have an education?

What if the cure for cancer... isn't "locked inside" any mind, and needs lots of research and testing first?

oh wait, that's how diseases are cured in real life.

Two things:

1. There will never be a cure for cancer, because "cancer" is not a single disease, but a whole mess of very different diseases. What cures, say, melanoma, might be utterly useless in curing leukemia or brain cancer.

2. The "there's no profit in curing cancer" argument is complete and utter horse **** . If a company somehow did come up with a cure for cancer (which, as I said above, is impossible), they'd jump on patenting that **** so fast it would make your head spin, and they'd make BILLIONS on having a monopoly on the cure for cancer. So long as cells can mutate, there will always be cancer, and a company that has exclusive control over the cure for cancer would become insanely rich.

The cure for cancer was discovered already. It is a chemical, dichloroacetate (not 100% on spelling), which destroys cancer cells and only cancer cells.

The cure failed to reach distribution under allegations that it could not be patented (for undisclosed reasons).

But if you're not an idiot, you're able to figure that nobody would be making money from cancer patients anymore (chemotherapy, alternative methods, etc.), so somebody along the chain of command simply chose to suppress it.

Hi, you're dumb and also wrong.

It would make more sense to keep the cure a secret because it's the only thing stopping the global population going massively overboard at the minute.

in all honesty i think the cure for cancer has been found, they just won't release it to the public for multiple reason one being the cost of it, or anything else who knows, but seriously guiz we found the cure to H1-N1 within two months of the infection spreading and we can't find the cure to cancer after billions of dollars of funding mhmhm i don't think so

People who believe diseases won't be cured because "it's not profitable" sincerely lack faith in Humanity.
User avatar #50 - maskedhippo (07/07/2013) [+] (5 replies)
These comments are making me lose faith in humanity. The idea that a cure for any type of cancer would be supressed or kept hidden if it existed is preposterous.

The rate at which population is growing is huge already. Cancer is barely making a difference.

User avatar #153 - demandsgayversion (07/08/2013) [-]
Yeah, just like how they didn't cure the black plague because it wasn't profitable.

I'm more concerned about how the hell some kid that's never gone to school knows how to cure cancer....

I honestly think they could have or could find a cure for cancer. In my opinion i honestly think that they are making so much money off of finding a cure they do not want to.

Dead people don't buy drugs either.

its not that there's no profitability, its just costs a lot to get through all the phases of clinical trials and into actual application. it can be millions of dollars. also theres a difference between a treatment and a cure.
