"Greed is good", a dialog from a Hollywood Wall-Street movie played by Michael Douglas. I doubt this greed will ever get you a cure for cancer. Prolong sickness with TREATMENT is the call of the day.
Other than the childhood Leukemia (and to some extent, adult one too) no cancer has a cure yet. Only success is approximate cause and prevention. Anti smoking campaign and discontinuation of estrogen supplement for women are a few good stories.
All of my loved ones with cancer died within two years of diagnosis. Three were very close to me in their 50s, 60s and 70s. No one went to "doctor Chopra", your Neem Hakim. You may have some good cancer stories to share. But I have a conspiracy theory about those.
Over-diagnosis, over-prescription and placebos are the prime factor in modern healthcare. Autopsies of accident victims show that majorities of women in 40's had cancer cells in their breast and men of 50s had cancer cell in their prostates. These cells do not harm a person until a process of angiogenesis kicks in. Who know the placebo (cured) cancer patient actually had a benign/ inactive cancer and was treated for no reason.
"They" say early detection is the key to a successful cancer treatment. But how an early detection can be done is also a myth. In the US, healthy people go to a doctor once a year for physical checkup. Most deadly cancers show their symptoms in six month. By then it is already stage three. Only way you can detect cancer early is to go under a CT scan every three months. But CT scan might itself expose you to cancer.
Please watch this. The last part is the placebo promise what Imtiaz Sahib has mentioned, which I agree with him.
Some IT companies approached Bharat for hiring of IT professionals. When told about the emolument packages, the Bharati youths simply regretted the offer of the American firms telling them that they get paid more or less similar amounts of emoluments in Bharat. The public of Bharat has begun to enjoy high standard of living. Now the American amounts of emoluments are no longer attractive to them.
