What makes cancer cure so elusive?
What exactly is cancer and the its root causes? Why is modern science not able to find a cure? We find more and more of this generation dying of cancer and the only thing medicine can offer if at all is palliative care.
Why is a cure so elusive?
Have we failed to understand the root cause?
Have we been so irresponsible to lead a life conducive to this disease?
Have we failed to notice something so very evident?
Have we failed to collaborate amongst cross functional groups who can put their minds together and find a solution?
WHAT IS IT THAT MAKES IT SO ELUSIVE?
Closing Statement from STV V
Thank you to all of you and especially to TED which has enabled people from multiple geographies and disciplines to talk about a subject! We have Kevin Tinholt (Biotech - Netherlands) , Krisztián Pintér ( software programmer, Hungary) , Yale Wang ( Environmentalist and Social worker from Canada ), David Juan ( MD from US) , Peter Lindsay ( Physics - Austrailia) talk about this topic..
I have summed up the inputs from all of you below! Its nice to hear that atleast some types of cancer are curable! I hope more will follow and the Government support for these increase. I hope we find a cure soon!
