KOH I don't know you well, but I know you have a tendency to be good people, but please understand that for people that cancer touches their lives every single day, the myth of a cure is just that a myth. I, and I am sure LT want nothing NOTHING more than for there to be a cure to cancer. But right now, there isn't. There are management medications for MBC like Faslodex among others (which one of my friends from child hood is a spokewoman for), we have to be real with ourselves. I know that one day in the future, I will be attending another funeral, for another friend, another family member that has died from cancer. I have to be real with myself that genetically I'm fluffed. Because I have the genes to get the same thing that killed my grandmother.
I hate to invoke him but, Elves knows the pain and the hurt of it, we were married when my Brother in Law passed away from cancer. He was diagnosed 8 months before his daughter was born. He got to see her born, and then died some few short weeks later.
My aunt someone he also knows, passed on Friday, leaving behind two daughters that are still children in their own right, and a granddaughter. A granddaughter she was taking care of because her daughter, the grandchilds mom, died of cancer.
If that makes me a sheeple, then fine. But I don't want to hedge my bets on some theory that the FDA has shut down a cure. What they are talking about there, is a blanket cure. And that cure will never ever work even if it was a thing. Genetically speaking each cancer is different.
I said I wasn't going to get involved. I said I was just going to let it go. But I think you missed my remark on the fact that it is nothing but a theory. A theory that is faulty. A theory that at best a troll because it gives hope to people that are already looking for things that would make life better, to give them extra years.
If you want to find a cure, or help find a cure, get involved with a group of people like Metavivor, or any BCAF. Or any other thing. Because I know that those people are fighting each and everyday to find an actual cure.
Literally one of the clinical trials on a compound of my design is for mitigating the side effects of radiation therapy in patients with high grade gliomas (a very aggressive type of cancer)
The fact is cancer is VERY complicated and a general term for 10s of thousands of different mutations.
We all have ‘cancerous cells’ and millions of them, some are innocuous and some hijack the ability to relicateb(such as hijacking our telomere/telomerase function) and relicate out of control
I’m critical of pharma, the FDA but it isn’t a conspiracy, it’s just flaws in the system
I have hundreds of thousands of words of blog content, some touching on the issues with industry, the black and white dichotomous messaging between pharma and natural, etc
