Infectious causes of cancer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Yes, as I said - it is a CLASS of diseases. So you can't just have one cure or one method of prevention for ALL cancer. But for some, vaccines are certainly possible.
Those are only apparent factors. There are more unseen possible causations/causalities. You are bombarded every day, every hr, every sec by unseen radiation surrounding you, most of the food that you eat now are processed in some form, the ocean/land are contaminated by toxic materials..blah blah and blah.
think about it.
Heard about a story of an american who was diagnosed of having cancer and given max 2 yrs to live by his doctor. He refused chemo therapy and went to spent his supposingly last 2yrs of his life in a cave, so to speak, in his native land and live to about 80+?, went back to the US to look for the doctor who diagnosed his cancer. Guess what, the doctor died years before him.
I once asked another oncologist about alternative medicine. Her reply was "I have seen many cases: there are those who underwent only western medical treatment. Some lived, some died. There are those who underwent only alternative treatment. Some lived, some died. There are those who underwent both western and alternative treatment. Some lived, some died. There are those who refused all treatment. Some lived, some died. So take your pick."

our knowledge of cancer, inclusive of those so-called medical experts, is still in its infancy.
Hence, more effort should be spent on prevention research rather than cure research.
As UncleFai puts it nicely, any type of cure methods, be it Western, Eastern, Northern, Southern or Alternative only gives you 50/50 chance.
this article seems to give an good example on the over-emphasis on cure for some selfish reason.
Do Sharks Hold Secret to Human Cancer Fight?
Quoting a para from it....
"Carl and others are asking very good questions," he said. "There may be fundamental differences in shark immune systems so that they aren't as prone to cancer, or so that certain types of compounds might not be a problem for them."
They are approaching the problem from the more "preventive" perspective, ie finding out how shark might defend themselves against cancer, which then could apply to human to PREVENT cancer.
Whereas, those group that are asking from the "cure" perspective are killing thousands of sharks just to get their cartilage. SAD.
If only it was that simple, ask the right questions & you get the right answers (only in academia perhaps).
Its been 40+ years since the war has been declared on cancer but to date, there are still so many unanswered questions. Doctors dont really have all the answers & we still struggling to overcome this scourge of cancer. Once I ask an eminent oncologist whats the cause of NPC, a common cancer amongst men, he was like blah blah blah maybe this maybe that, no one really knows Perhaps with advances in the cancer genome project more answers may be revealed.

i am actually wondering how many of you got wombs be at risk from hpv
The right question is: Doctor, do I have cancer? If he says Yes, don't take his word for it. Always get a second or third opinion.

Even if the doctors do not know all the causes or have all the answers, they have some of the cures. At least I know of so many people who have been in reality cured of cancer by those who ask that question, myself included, & not just make empty talk only like you.... or rather just meow about asking the right question on this & right question on that.
And as someone pointed out, you cant read. The ariticle in question made a statement, not ask a question. Which made your thread title & postulation messed up.
