    Lewis Black's rant about cancer

    Lol, this is what i've been saying for years. I must admit however, I am ignorant to the mechanics of actual cancer research and the details of biological sciences, so it may be more difficult than I expect...but, at the same time, I also suspect that they're not willing to actually make a cure for something if they can profit more from treating it.

    for example, in 2002 the federal government spent 4.3 billion on cancer research, while in the same year spent 60 billion on cancer treatment! Think about the profit motive in the cancer industry...why research a cure when you can get paid 14x more just treating the symptoms?
