We Can’t Afford To Cure Cancer
By Bill Sardi
June 7, 2016

*** begin quote ***

Someone has said there are just too many jobs in the pursuit of a cancer cure to allow any therapy to be proven and put into practice.  Recognize the nation is dotted with cancer research centers that hold billions of dollars of debt.  For example, the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington holds $176 million of debt.  [Moody’s Investor Service] Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, the nation’s cancer research center, holds $1.9 billion of debt.  [Moody’s Investor Service]  A cancer cure would leave research centers like these on the hook for loans that could not possibly be paid back.

It’s a scary and cynical.

But one must be always suspect the monetary motives.

Unfortunately we can’t overlook the example of “March of Dimes”.

They set out to cure polio. And they did it. Or at least, Sabin and Salk did. 

Then they “retargeted” to “birth defects”.

Never have to worry about going out of business again.

Argh!
