|Wondering why no cure for cancer|
Letter to the Editor:
To the people:
Do we ever wonder why so many of us are getting cancer? We have donated billions of dollars to cancer research, but are we any closer to a cure? Whatever happened to the “War on Cancer” during Lyndon Johnson’s time?
I believe we are always having better and better treatments, but I?want to put my donations into finding a cure.I?am overjoyed for all of the wonderful people who are in cancer remission, but after reading about the successful Relay For Life I?read the obituary of yet another young man who died of cancer after long difficult treatments.
What about all the cancer deaths in our families? Are we breathing the wrong air? Are we drinking the wrong water? Are we eating the wrong food? When is the last time your bread molded? When is the last time your milk soured? Can you pronounce the chemicals on the labels of most preserved food? Could these chemicals poison our systems? Are we trading our lives for shelf life?
I’m wondering if anyone else has these thoughts. Our country has the intelligence and the financial means to find a cure. We did it with other dreaded diseases. Why not cancer? Cancer is big business. Do we wonder about that?
