A little more optimism

I happily discovered this article yesterday - that someone else helpfully posted on a cancer message board which greatly eased my internet roamings. It seems we are getting closer to that Star Trek utopia where they talk about cancer being cured in the 21st century as a cancer vaccine is looking more and more promising. There are some that have been tested and are in the development pipeline. This means that actual marketability is within a reasonable range of years - provided that they get through clinical trials.

Imagine a world with out cancer. Is it possible?

- All medical professionals would need to be retrained
- Chemotherapy drug manufacturers would need to find new products
- All those nasty cancer treatment side effects would no longer be a problem.
- People would live longer.

Next step a cure for the common cold and world peace.
