IF this is true then I am really lucky. My whole family (gran-pa, 2xuncle, aunt and the list is getting longer) is suffering of this evil thing. I am doomed if they don't put a cure on the market

Its unfortunate that progress in science moves so slowly when it comes to actually being implemented into its proper uses. There has been nanotechnological cancer treatments for years with a 99% success rate in test subjects, only to be trudging along as slow as universally possible.

Money should be speeding up this process (and could with ease), not at war.

Everyone wants a return on their investment these days...
