(AFP) - The medical community has gained a better understanding of cancer after a half-century of enormous investments and research, but the disease is still winning the battle.
The cancer mortality rate has barely changed in this century compared to 50 years ago, while the death rates of cardiac, cerebrovascular and infectious diseases have declined by about two-thirds, said Harold Varmus, a Nobel medicine prize laureate: http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20060618/hl_afp/ushealthcancerresearch_060618164024.
[Even more interesting is that Cancer was virtually unknown 100 years ago. It's a lifestyle disease, and we've seen thousands heal themselves of Cancer with raw living foods. When are the doctors going to "get it?" - Jim Carey]
