People who claim Big Pharma is suppressing some kind of magic cure misunderstand what cancer is, what big pharma is and how cancer treatment works.

Cancer is you, it isn't foreign so it's incredibly difficult to treat with conventional drugs without mildly poisoning the patient. Only with the advent of cutting edge diagnostics and cutting edge genetic/immunotherapies does the chances of success increase and the side effects decrease.

Not a magic cure, but they know how to kill it but they'd rather suppress it. There's no money in a cure, theres tons of money from constant treatment.
Generally speaking there is more money to be made in long term treatment of a disease than a cure. However, these pharmaceutical companies are still competing with each other. If they can find a cure for a disease that the competition can only treat, then they have cornered the market. The competitions treatment drugs are now obsolete.

These formerly rare cancers not being so rare makes me wonder if SV40 and HeLa contamination has made it into the vaccines of the 50s and 60s.

Trust - Cancer just took one of my childhood "Stand by me" friends. He got diagnosed in December and died Feb. 27.

Fuck cancer.

I lost a friend a couple weeks ago she was 36

was in hospital in November for stomach pain, they found nothing

fast forward to the end of Jan and they tell every it's everywhere

me being optimistic I kept saying no worries you got this

on the 7th day in hospital they said there is nothing they could do

By the 9th day she had passed:(

 

im sorry for your loss trust

i have another friend fighting it now and she is doing ok

 

cancer sucks

Doubtful on sv40, wpuld have to dig through literature though.

Regarding the nanoscale technology- my work is in that field.

There is no "typical day" per se... i manage a lab of 8 researchers. On any day i can be: at the bench, preparing budgets/timelines/resource allocation (i do this alot to manage multiple projects), researching new equipment/methods that may be applicable, etc. I can go o forever here

For those wanting to move here- a few things

1. Cost of living in san diego.is insane. We live in north county (san marcos) and i commute an hour to get to work.

2. Traffic sucks ass. Drivers are clueless because most are transplants. In boston i knew when someone was about to cut me off and could prepare and react accordingly because everyone drove the same. Here moat drivers are space cadets in la la land.

3. Its xpensive to move a wife and 3 kids across the country

4. All that aside, its fuckimg paradise here. I leave for work at 6 am and depart at 330 -4 to minimize traffic shittyness. "Cold" is 50 degrees. The women here are on anothet level (not that i notice)

5. Professionally san diego is on par with if not about to leapfrog the bay area in terms of number of jobs and opportunities.

6. Bjj scene here is world class

7. No nhl team :( ... yay gulls!

Anyone seriously interested pm me and we'll talk.

I'm a molecularbiologynerd but that was a long time ago.

Still.......history is telling me that someone (likely more than one person) let the cat out of the bag.

The sad part is that the conspiracy douchebags ruin any sort of proper discussion and peer review has taken a back seat to legal actions used to suppress theories.

I'm a MD, specialize in internal medicine/nephrology/toxicology but work closely with oncology patients and have close non-commercial ties with the pharma and even bigger ties with researchers. Both my parents got cancer in the last few years. They both got "conventional" treatments. They both survived.

I really want to bitch slap all the morons who believe there is a conspiracy theory. We're all looking for cures. I do the same in my field. Cures do exist for many diseases, especially acute (think infections, think overdose). Cures are rarer for chronic diseases. That's the just the name of the game.

My wife had a mammogram on Friday and we're waiting for results tomorrow. I'm really scared cause I felt this lump a few months ago and she finally went to get checked out and the doctor felt it right away. I don't want my two girls to grow up without their mother.

No matter the news, have a plan, and stay strong.

If it is something, start treatment immediately- chances are it is early

Could it be diagnostic techniques have just made it far more noticeable?
This too- similar to autism, which is NOT caused by vaccines

What do you mean by this?

Great move to propose a cut of 18% in the NIH budget- speaking of curing cancer. Not related to your post.

Thanks. Hoping it's just a cyst or something but I have a bad feeling.

FreightTrain - Chemo-poison is a billion dollar industry.
Chemo and radiation therapies are not perfect. They are also not administered with the intent of "big pharma" to poison patients and make them pay for additonal treatments

Cancer is a bitch, and it takes the collective nerd power and fortitide to press on and develop new ways to attack and kill it, minimizing patient impact.
Just finished 2nd rd of chemo, had radiation during first round. I agree with you completely. Untreated and I would be dead much sooner than later. Stage 3 rectal, getting scan in 2 weeks.
Stay strong man. Hope everything works itself out for the best.

The scientist who discovers the cure for cancer should get a penthouse in a city of his choosing free for life with a button that sends women up to suck his dick whenever he wants, also free of charge.

Then, you tell that to kids in high school. "Hey kids, you get a free dick suck button for the REST OF YOUR LIFE if you cure cancer." We'll have to beat the children to get them to leave the science labs.

Then, all those spots will open up for more women to take Gender Studies

dr shapiro in this article treated my dad for lung cancer in 1999, and is one of the nicest and most genuine people you'd ever meet.

for the frat people on the article: 2 main points

1. transpla ting mice poop containing bifidobacterium boosted the immune system and slowed the growth of melanoma skin cancer

2. the genus bacteroides, when introduced to mice, ALLOWED THE TREATED ANIMALS TO ELIMINATE INJECTED TUMORS. bacteroides is basically the chuck norris of the microbial world.

fuck you cancer
