    Default Cure for cancer finally realized?

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/44090512...cer/?GT1=43001

    I know it's a small sample group. Very small actually. That still gives me no reason to feel anything other than absolute hope that this ends up gaining some ground.

    It looks like scientists have finally found either a cure for cancer, or the path to finding a cure, and it's hard to not be excited about this.

    How Cool.

    "Both the National Cancer Institute and several pharmaceutical companies declined to pay for the research. Neither applicants nor funders discuss the reasons an application is turned down. But good guesses are the general shortage of funds and the concept tried in this experiment was too novel and, thus, too risky for consideration."

    And there's always the fact that this isn't a simple pill the pharmaceuticals can sell.
