No matter how much we boast about diving into the future with our new inventions in technology we still haven't found a cent percent cure for cancer. I'm no doctor, but I've often heard doctors citing that the chief reason
for the difficulty in curing cancer is that "cancer" is many hundreds
of different types of diseases/disorders. It is incurable, because cancer
isn't a single disease. "Cancer"
is an overarching term for when your cells multiply out of control.
There are as many types of cancer as there are cells in your body, and
each one is different from the next, and they all require a different
strategy to kill.
Don't get me wrong, there will always be newer and better treatments
for cancer, but there will never be a way to 100% prevent it. Your body
will always have 1000's of cells that become cancerous, and every now
and then your immune system will fail to kill one.
