As a person which lost 2 very important people through cancer I don't agree with you.

Overpopulation can easily be solved by more efficient technology and less extravagance for conserving resources and education as intelligent people have less children.

If you are of the mind that many people in our todays society deserve death. They mostly don't die because of cancer

Are you ******* retarded? You do realize that regardless of disease, we're still going to over populate this planet? Without cancer it might happen 2 years early. We're not hopelessly doomed into ******* ourselves to extinction. In fact with proper waste management, energy sources and geo-engineering, we could have a population of 21 billion without harming the Earth.

TL;DR you're a stupid cunt.

Anytime there is a problem in human history it spurs technological advancement. If we reach a population in which there is not enough resources to support it, we will advance to do so. This has been the case and always will be. People like you hold humanity back, and you're a douchebag.

as big a douche you are for saying such a thing about cancer you are right about the overpopulation of the world

to put it simply.......the current human population of the world is not sustainable

it is already a problem with many knock on effects that are destroying the planet at a slowly increasing rate

the first step in stopping this is for everyone to admit or be aware that this is a real issue and that more steps need to be taken other than handing Developing countries Condoms that dont get used

Yeah, we learned about population limits in my environmental science class. Unfortunately, the issue is growing exponentially, so every day that passes the issue gets worse and worse. And to make this issue even more of a problem, there is never an appropriate time nor place to discuss the subject with anyone really.

Lemme Just fix it up for ya there sir

This may sound awful but i hope they don't cure cancer.

A large population is going to become a serious problem soon and a bigger population means a higher mortality rate. This disease in turn would help level the population.

Cancer is a ************ of a blanket term. It's used to describe about 200-300 similar but seperate diseases. You can find ways to treat one kind of cancer, but curing all cancer at once is pretty much impossible.

It's still a good point though.

Germ cell modifications of humans is unlikely to happen in the next 100 years, IMO. Too risky and stigmatised. If it happens it will be very exclusive.

It's a bad example, but it's when you know the basic stuff on how to make it, and you know it can be done, but don't know the details.

Two things:

1. There will never be a cure for cancer, because "cancer" is not a single disease, but a whole mess of very different diseases. What cures, say, melanoma, might be utterly useless in curing leukemia or brain cancer.

2. The "there's no profit in curing cancer" argument is complete and utter horse ****. If a company somehow did come up with a cure for cancer (which, as I said above, is impossible), they'd jump on patenting that **** so fast it would make your head spin, and they'd make BILLIONS on having a monopoly on the cure for cancer. So long as cells can mutate, there will always be cancer, and a company that has exclusive control over the cure for cancer would become insanely rich.

You are wrong. Canadian scientists discovered that an extremely common compound called dichloroactate, which is used to treated metabolic disorders. It has little side effects, and carries one huge problem: it doesn't require a patent to use. So no pharmaceutical company wants to buy it up. It would be like trying to patent beach sand.

Yes they don't buy it up because of how plentiful it is, but you realize I'm going to ask you this: Are there products of dichloroactate being sold? Whether off-brand or premium? Shouldn't be hard since it doesn't require a patent right? So availability being over-shadowed by profit doesn't really work in this case because of how easy it is to get/distribute.

The situation is completely different for a specific compound that you can patent.

The cure for cancer was discovered already. It is a chemical, dichloroacetate (not 100% on spelling), which destroys cancer cells and only cancer cells.

The cure failed to reach distribution under allegations that it could not be patented (for undisclosed reasons).

But if you're not an idiot, you're able to figure that nobody would be making money from cancer patients anymore (chemotherapy, alternative methods, etc.), so somebody along the chain of command simply chose to suppress it.

Congratulations, you've proven an internet person wrong.

Well obviously, but the fact that cancer effects so many people. It's hard to believe that someone hasn't leaked it.

I think they did already say what it was, some kind of plant I believe but it can't be patented

Dude, I just want to say that you can't get any more wrong. Do you even understand how cancer works? Do you understand that the "cure" has to include a method of targeting cancerous cells? One chemical cannot identify ALL types of cancerous cells, that's why they use radiation as a method for targeting them. It is faaaar too complicated for just one molecule to be a "cure".

I'm not arguing with you here just pointing out what you were wrong on. I apologize in advance for the fact that I will not reply to any of your future comments on the subject as I'm not interested in an argument. Good day to you sir.

The article I read said that the chemical targets all cancer cells and only cancer cells, and destroys them. I'm hazy on the specifics, but I believe that when introduced to the cancer cells (cells which have failed to self destruct), causes them to self destruct.

The cure for cancer has been found, and no amount of red thumbs is going to hide that.

It targets cells which are undergoing anaerobic respiration, which cancer cells commonly do (because they grow too fast for adequate blood supply to be maintained). Even if it worked 100% on those cells (unlikely, cancer cells are very adaptable), cancer cells which do have enough oxygen would presumably be unaffected and able to grow again once treatment is stopped.

All the best,
A bachelor in biopharmaceutical chemistry

"In 2010, it was found that for human colorectal tumours grown in mice, under hypoxic conditions, DCA decreased rather than increased apoptosis, resulting in enhanced growth of the tumours.[20] These findings suggest that at least in some cancer types DCA treatment could be detrimental to patient health, highlighting the need for further testing before it can be considered a safe and effective cancer treatment."

It would make more sense to keep the cure a secret because it's the only thing stopping the global population going massively overboard at the minute.

We need another Holocaust.
It doesn't have to be Jews.

Let's make it fat people, two birds with one stone.
Feed the fat to the starving, and its three birds.

Good idea.

I'm also thinking: Nuke Africa and use it as a huge prison. Convert old prisons into living space, factories and slaughter dens for the fatties

Only reason I am not okay with that is how it could effect the wildlife. Don't wanna lose a bunch of animals. Also lions ad elephants might be killed in the explosion and they're already at risk as it is.
