If you could create world peace, cure cancer or end world hunger, what would you choose and why?

Peace. With peace, it could lead to the countries working together to cure cancer and solve world hunger. Together.

give it up Buttercup.
humans are preditors disguised as humanitarians...
Sad.
Our homosapian bodies disease, wither and die, hunger runs amuck everywhere from Ulster to the Red Sea..
the so called leaders, politicos, Kanitics,and little demi Hitler',s bomb and burn and gas their way across the globe...
Jesus and Mohammand are probably both puzzled and horrified at the way their teachings have turned out to be blood-stained massacres...
These cures for peace, cancer, strides made to stop in its tracks world hunger could be introduced into every segment of society,
but you will never know, the raggedy man down the tracks will die in fear and pain tonight..with out a warm blanket or an
ounce of food in his stomach..
Sheeple,wake up....they can cure you ,feed you, send you home from the desert but the big plan or NWO or whatever does not
compute...they need us sick and homeless and in a cancer ward....
They need dead and dying too, because that is the reason for grants, loans federal spending, social health care....

It's the money honey, the mega bucks and the megadeth
Dr's need big cars, politicos need fresh bread and woman, dictator's and Presidents need a sickly country to milk dry...whilst they sip brandy and smoke, yes SMOKE the finist cigars....the fucking /bustards!

O Fungus! Look at the time....time fo me to fly.. .Quoth the Raven, Nevermore.

I doubt most of the criticisms the people in this thread have against world peace, but I'm still going to go with curing cancer.

I'd selfishly benefit more, because I'm at no real risk of dying in a war so world peace would just mean less interesting news, and solving world hunger wouldn't even affect me at all, but curing cancer would mean that my life expectancy is increased by decades because it's no longer possible for me to die of cancer. That bonus gets compounded with further increases in my life expectancy as doctors work out how to fix other stuff now that cancer's off the table, and I might even get actuarial escape velocity (this is when life expectancy increases faster than you use it up, until eventually we invent immortality).

I'd altruistically help more because starvation and war are easier problems, and the combined total QALYs lost to both are probably less than the gain from giving every first-worlder a couple more decades.

Might sound odd, me being a cancer survivor and all, but I'd go for solving hunger. Both cancer and hunger can hit anyone of any age, but I feel like hunger is wider spread, and it's got a stigma attached to it (via food stamps and such) which cancer usually doesn't have.

Cure cancer. The world hunger wil end by itself in time as longs as the African countries move in the right direction to a more civilized society with less corruption and less wars. The african countries is slowly moving though the demographic phases. We in the western part of the world used to be more or less like Africa with wars, hunger and shit. We moved though the stages spanning over 200 years from ca the Industrial revolution. The progress in Africa wil probably take far less time due to modern medicines and economic support from the west.
Not sure if you mean unbreakable world peace or just peace starting now in the blink of an eye. Never the less. We see that most of the wars vaging today is located in the middle east and Africa, countries with a poor system and great corruption. The problem here is related to tensions between different ethnicities and religions. Advancing in the Demographic transition might solve the problem if its followed by cease of corruption and wars. Switzerland is an example where different groups of people can live at peace.
The reason for curing cancer is because it would mean a radical change in the war against diseases, most with people with cancer die today. Curing cancer wil most likely give a domino effect, same thecnique could be used for progress in other medical areas. World peace and world hunger wil most likely "cure" themself in time.

Many people have their own vision of being at peace.For some it the end requires compromising others regardless of there being general "Peace". I believe World peace is impossible~but possible at the same time.I think it's possible in capable theory imo.

Cancer/Hunger would be the only options for me. And I would rather pick cancer. Since foods presence is already half the job of ending world hunger. And I haven't seen sources claiming we are scarce on food.Cancer doesn't even have a chance without a fix negating it(or a vaccine in full)~oh and that has a great consumer range for patients.

World hunger.

Sad as it may be, achieving world peace would probably require reducing the amount of free thinking and decision making greatly. Also, while cancer is not a sickness in the traditional sense but a list of situations in which cells undergo mitosis too quickly and/or out of the appropiate rhythm , I'm certain better understanding of its causes will continue to improve gradually, and by the next 100-150 years it will probably be easily healed/prevented. I don't think the same can be said about world hunger, however, since the problem there is distribution and economics

Is this like a "magic wish" or is it supposed to be "realistic"?

I'm inclined to say cure cancer (only because I personally believe the other two are impossible to maintain).

If we're just talking "magic" then i'd go with world peace. If we could get everyone on the same side, then I think it would eventually fix the other two as well.
