A Cure For Cancer Will Always Be 10 Years Away

A Cure For Cancer Will Always Be 10 Years Away

For the last hundred years we have had a medical care system which is profit driven. That's why our medicine is drug based and drugs are always synthetic or man made. Anything that comes from nature cannot be patented so isn't nearly as profitable as substances that are artificial which can be patented. The owner of that drug can then market it for a period of 17 years while they hold that patent and that means a much greater profit.
We will never win the war against cancer with our current approach. When you understand what cancer is and why there is so much of it today you will understand why they will never find a cure. It is the same as trying to find a cure for scurvy which of course everyone knows is a vitamin C deficiency disease. With scurvy it is easily cured by eating a food item that contains the missing vitamin.
Research has been underway since 1971 when the president of the USA declared war on cancer and allocated funds to find a cure. However 40 years have now pasted and the best they have come up with is a range of drugs which are marginally more effective but still don't cure but may give someone a little more time. These drugs are very expensive costing around 4000 US dollars a month and one of them, herceptin used for a type of breast cancer was said to be 0.6 percent better than some of the earlier drugs.
The focus today with cancer is to remove it at all costs because that is the only way our medicine system can profit from the disease. Whereas the focus should be addressing the underlying cause or causes which will strengthen the immune system and the immune system will remove the cancer, but nobody can profit from that. The reason is, that is only achievable by natural means.
The cure for cancer will remain elusive unless scientists rethink the role of nature and the food it produces such as berries, broccoli, turmeric, and a host of others which have cancer fighting properties. It is widely known that the substances in these foods boost the immune system which then corrects the reason why the disease appeared in the first place. But unfortunately you can't patent our food because it is a natural product and nature can't be patented. That's why it won't be offered.
If you study our medical care system you will find there are many health problems we suffer from that we don't have a cure for, the common cold being just one of them. Also there are many health problems we do have drugs for but these drugs don't cure but merely control the symptoms. Asthma and diabetes are a couple and people with those problems are usually on a lifetime of medication which is good business for the companies that are supplying the drugs.
If we weren't trying to make a profit from cancer we would have a cure for it tomorrow because nature has a cure.
