    • means nothing. Talk is cheap and the big pharmas will never allow cancer cures because of all the billions they would lose in revenue. Plus all the job loses in health care industry. No way will they ever allow cures, and in fact they will create new cancers.

        "the big pharmas will never allow cancer cures "

        "A new study shows that children with the most common type of childhood cancer, acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) have a survival rate of more than 90%. ALL accounts for about 3 out of 4 cases of childhood leukemia.

        The research included more than 21,000 children with ALL, more than half the patients in the United States. They took part in the Children’s Oncology Group clinical trials from 1990 to 2005.

        Researchers from the University of Colorado Cancer Center found that the 5-year survival rate for children and adolescents with ALL improved from 83.7% for those diagnosed between 1990 and 1994, to 90.4% for those diagnosed between 2000 and 2005. In the 1960s, the 5-year survival rate was less than 10%. The survival rates increased for girls and boys of all racial and ethnic groups and for all age groups except infants under 1 year old. Improvements in survival for African-American patients with ALL were so significant, they narrowed the racial survival gap.

        Researchers attribute the improved survival rates to clinical trials that helped doctors learn the best drugs and dosages to treat children with ALL."
