You can't vaccinate against cancer.
Cancer is already inside you, the cells are almost impossible to differentiate from normal cells, unless they are tumours.

"Scientists Confirm Existence of Largest Single Volcano on Earth"

So they found at that the largest volcano exists? Was there ever really any doubt? I mean, some volcano somewhere had to be the largest, right?

It is physically impossible to vaccinate against cancer and HIV. A vaccine is where you inject someone with a dead form of a bacteria so that your body can produce antibodies to fight the disease. This means if you ever contract the disease, your body will be able to produce the correct antibodies to rid your body of the disease immediately. However, as HIV is a virus, a dead form cannot be injected as it was never alive in the first place (Much like an enzyme it can only be denatured). Cancer on the other hand is defined as a group of cells that is dividing uncontrollably. This also cannot be vaccinated against as it would effectively be injecting someone with a small tumour. Each of us has the potential to get cancer everyday as cells are constantly being damaged into the position where a tumour could form. What stops this is your body killing those cells before they start to divide into a tumour. Sorry about that, just annoyed me, check your facts next time.

Explain influenza vaccines then.

That's a virus and yet we can vaccinate against that.

The "cancer vaccine" probably refers to vaccinating against a certain virus/bacteria which when in the body is able to produce alterations in host cell DNA leading to uncontrolled cell proliferation, ie cancer. This virus/bacteria may be the cause of certain types of cancer. For example, I know that you can get a vaccine against ovarian cancer, but the causing agent is also involved in a lot of cases for throat cancer - hence why it's recommended for everyone.

Too bad people will likely drop the cancer cure part way, patent their current research, making it cost a fortune to continue, because greed is more important that trying to make the world just that little bit better.

I feel so honored to be the first comment. All of my hard work and dedication has paid off. Getting the top comment has been a dream of mine for many years, and i would like to thank those who have helped me along the way. First and foremost i would like to thank god for giving me this opportunity. Next i would like to thank my parents. I want to thank my friend Josh Arcaro, for being really skinny and always there for me. I would also like to thank my pet tadpole for surviving against all odds for over a week. Next i would like to thank the squirrel that lives in my backyard for climbing trees because that gives me inspiration that i need to get through the day. This is a special moment in my life and i would like to thank any of my unmentioned friends and family that have helped me along the way. This moment will be a moment that i will never forget. I just remembered a few other people i would like to thank; facebook, the fish i caught in the third grade, my light in my room bc i wouldn’t be able to see the keyboard without it, the internet for letting me go on facebook, my house because without it i would be homeless, and last but not least i would like to thank all the people out there that actually took time out of their day to read this. I cannot stress how much of a big deal to me this is. I have been trying to be the first comment on a post for years, but that has not been possible until this amazing day. Hopefully my good luck will continue, but this is undoubtedly a rare occasion. If you asked me how i did this, i would say, you can achieve anything u set your mind on. To all the kids out there reading this, i would like to tell them to follow their dreams. Being the top comment is amazing, thank you everyone.

Actually, I know some in my family who has stage 4 cancer of the throat that is linked to HPV. Sooooo.
User avatar #79 - robertolee (09/10/2013) [-]
What? How can you vaccinate against cancer? Does it just prevent cells from rapid division or is there some sort of surface marker on the cancer cells. I have no idea how this would work seeing as cancer is just your own cells going haywire. Can anyone explain?

Unfortunately, genetic engineering as of right now, really only benefits those yet to be born.
