Considering the amount of money funneled into the cause. I am deeply surprised that the cure for cancer hasn't been discovered.
Do you think there's a top secret goverment plan not to cure cancer

Why drag the government into this. Drug companies have no incentive to cure cancer or AIDS for that matter since it's much more profitable to keep people dependent on expensive treatments to live.
Capitalism at it's "best."

Spoiler alert: They're holding the cure at area 51!

It's not about curing cancer, it's about curing the 400 or however many cancers that exist that are basically separate illnesses.

What R3 said. "Cancer" isn't one disease. BTW, if anyone is really interested in minimising their risk of cancer, keep your sugar and refined carbs intake to a minimum. Tumors basically feed on sugar.

Is it your opinion that this cabal has discovered the cure and are keeping it for themselves, OP? Or that they're deliberately sabotaging research so scientists don't make any progress?
If it's the former, do you think they use the cure only on themselves, or do they share the secret with the doctors that treat loved ones that develop cancer? What do you think they do with these doctors once the doctors learn the secret -- these docs certainly can't be allowed to run around and proclaim the existence of a cure, can they?
If it's the latter, what do you think motivates these people -- half of them will come down with cancer, as will many of their loved ones. Does their love of money trump their love of life?
In other words -- stop wallowing in conspiracy theories.

The government is not involved...
The American Cancer Society is fixated on damage control— diagnosis and treatment— and basic molecular biology, with indifference or even hostility to cancer prevention. This myopic mindset is compounded by interlocking conflicts of interest with the cancer drug, mammography, and other industries. The "nonprofit" status of the Society is in sharp conflict with its high overhead and expenses, excessive reserves of assets and contributions to political parties. All attempts to reform the Society over the past two decades have failed; a national economic boycott of the Society is long overdue.

Of course the very rich would sacrifice their own health and those of their loved ones. Do you think those who destroy our air have their own source of air on earth? To some nothing is more important than money, NOTHING!

To even think there will be a singular cure for cancer is ridiculous. There are far too many types of cancer that require too many different types of treatment and/or drug therapies to even think a "one cure fits all" solution will come about in our lifetimes.

The "cancer epidemic" was caused by the polio vaccine, which was made with monkey cells that were infected with SV40. If you only received the oral version, you're probably okay.

I don't think so but then again nothing would surprise me.

R3 is right. Cancer has many different causes.

It is appalling and sad how ignorant so many people are about science and how it works.

Look at all the advertising insisting a guy isn't a "man" if he doesn't eat meat/animals. Look at the Superbowl commercials driving that home over and over. Groups of men attacking men who eat salad, then commercials of ho's eating dripping burgers. It goes on and on. Cancer is partly (mostly) caused by the toxins, chemicals and industrial waste stored in meat. And I'm talking about grass fed beef and other yuppie b.s. That meat is recommended so heavily by the US gov't as part of a "healthy diet" means their is a top secret plan. Hope it fails as more people wake up and figure it out...

OP, you should worry more about whether they have a secret plan not to cure stupidity.

If anything I think that there is a top secret plan to have as many people as possible contract various cancers. A soft kill eugenics campaign as it were. The drug companies are happy accomplices in this plan as they can charge megabucks for various drugs to ameliorate the effects of cancer but not cure it. The problem is not in the cancer research and treatment, the problem is in our environment and lack of efforts to improve cancer prevention. Our willingness to allow toxic waste in the food supply and in products we use on a daily basis can account for the marked increase in the number of cancer cases in the US. The government's indifference to allowing things like: aspertain (a cancer linked substance) to be put in milk (not implemented yet but being discussed) strawberries that are sprayed with methyl iodide- a chemical used to grow cancer cells in a lab The fact that nearly all of the health/ beauty products sold today contain 1 or more toxic carcinogenic chemicals, products that are sold to improve your appearance but actually do the opposite in the long run and a chemical industry that is largely unregulated and allowed to put out nearly any product without any testing or gov oversight. And the agencies that do exist to perform safety checks are staffed by corporate shills and bought and paid for to turn the other cheek to possible dangers as long as the profits continue rolling in and as long a palms are kept greased.

Welcome to America!
These are the same people who tan all the time, eat horribly shitty food from McDonald's, and drink from plastic bottles and cups that seep chemicals.
