Why are people afraid of cancer when it will probably go from a terminal condition to a chronic ailment within the next few years?
>>
>lol why are people afraid of dying from horrible disease!?

fucking moron

>next few years

and why would that be?

This.

The cure for cancer is a meme. You can never cure it. At most we will develop highly effective treatments, but they won't be 100% and they won't be the end of cancer.
>>
>>7802937
do you have any substantiating, peer-reviewed evidence that it can't be cured? if not you should shut the fuck up.
>>
>>7802944
>it
There isn't just a single cancer.
>>
Bronchitis is a chronic ailment, too, but it's still better to not have it.
>>
>>7803017
bronchitis ain't chronic until they add the word "chronic" to the front of it
at that point they usually just call it OCPD though.

>you can never fly in the air, airplanes are a meme
>you can never have pocket sized computers, personal computers are a meme
>you can never get to the moon, the moon is a meme
See the pattern yet, moron?

Fuck off.

I don't think that word memes what you think it memes.

Wooosh, that post went miles over your fucking head.

Immunotherapy is already available for people with lung cancer.
>>
>>7803479
how is that even possible? isn't lung cancer one of the most sure-kill types out there? from what i learned you usually get 6 months - 1 year even with chemo/radiation.
>>
>>7803479
which probably doesn't work because the technology is in its infancy
>>
>>7803032
The difference is that you'll never be able to really stop irregular cellular division and catch it when it's a comparatively small number of cancerous cells. Which means that when it is caught it will be technically correct to say that they 'have cancer'.

We will have a cure for cancer but cancer will not have been cured.
