I will and you keep showing people tolerant you are, I'm sure it'll take far in life.


Yes because how people talk on the internet is how they talk in real life. Brilliant deduction Watson. Do you also say things wrong in real life, or is that just a typo? Cause I think you meant "you keep showing people HOW tolerant you are" and "I'm sure it'll take you FAR in life"

Regardless, the point of this thread is to recognize cancer and to that end I am glad we have a day about it.

My grandpa has cancer but because he lives far away it's kind of hard to keep track of. He was taking it pretty well for a while but it's just been bad these past 6 months. I think he was part of an experiment to find new cancer treatments and it kind of back fired.

Don't be that guy. Besides, stress can cause cancer.

Yeah but here's the thing if the majority of people believe that and have that as their underlying intent then it's safe to say that so do our scientist might that hinder the way we try to find a solution (cause maybe science can't really save us cause it's not that type of situation). I really wonder if the way we're approaching it with our current model and understanding is actually accurate, cause apparently we have alot of people that "know" what cancer is (really we could extend this to all disease for that matter)...but we're all just waiting till the breakthrough where we understand all the complexity and how to manipulate and control it too our will through some drug so we can continue abusing ourselves... But we've been doing this in medicine for decades and I don't think we've actually cured anything in terms of innate disease through our treatments/protocols, I think the only thing we've really done is gotten really good a damage control and prolonging life in critical situations which is cool but maybe this model isn't gonna bear the fruits we want in the first place. I mean there are people who are thinking differently and challenging our models but they're far and few and I think if people have that view and intent of what I said above where is the actual power to figure out what things like cancer are in a way we can heal or prevent people from experiencing it? It kinda makes me question if whether stuff like this is even worth supporting like for myself cause the way alot of it is set up and the way it is approached is just kinda stupid.

I wonder if the general health of civilians with drastically decrease once we find a cure for cancer and diabetes. I know that one of the only reasons i want to lose weight is diabetes scares the fck out of me. But it's mostly looks tbh. I'm glad i don't abuse most substances though. Cause I get addicted easily and would probably have cancer really quickly.

Having been through cancer myself I can tell you it sucks something fierce, no one should be left alone with it, it's a nasty way to go and even if you survive you don't come out the same

That's a cynical way of looking at it but I agree. But anyone who has gone through it has entertained the thought of "can more be done?" But I have a feeling that if innovative(and rich) people like Steve Jobs and Satoru Iwata are dying from this disease then it really isn't a case of "if we try harder and spend more money we can fix it" like Ebola was. Hell, the Vice President's son died from it. You better believe he was breaking down the doors of every doctor and researcher trying to save his kid.

Early detection really is the best thing to do and the best way to do that is regular check ups.

I think you read into it too much or I wrote it in a way I didn't mean too cause I don't think it's an uncurable disease if that is what you think I was getting at. When I said it isn't that type of situation I mean that perhaps the solutions that we commonly use won't do any good under our model and approach , and that maybe this isn't a situation where someone other than yourself can "save" you like one would save a incapacitated person in a fire... perhaps it's a bit different.

Well, the world is full of cancer, but not just in a literal form.

in all seriousness a few of my family members have died from cancer & it's horrific
