In response to Obama’s moronic assignment of Joe Biden to cure cancer, a sage letter in the NYTimes.
The so-called “war on cancer” has largely failed. There have been a few successes (childhood leukemia, testicular cancer and maybe a few others), but there is no “cure” in sight and one is likely just fanciful thinking. For the most part, cancer is a natural disease of aging and its complexities are simply beyond us. Government statistics can’t be trusted because of changes in detection and diagnoses. Unfortunate but true.
