$20 million in grant money is a very large grant...yes it is

and that is just to move the testing over to humans, if that starts to show promise I'm sure they get even more $$$

All the "Treatment Cancers Centers of America" not to mention billions of annual approaching trillions of dollars yearly that go into cancer treatment, research, etc that goes into the disease is an unlimited supply of revenue keeps piling in, there's no way in hell they'd allow a "cure" ...

It all sounds great on paper ... but shit isn't happening.

$$$ > human life.

Bank it. In time, the truth will come to light, but best believe, whether or not there is already a cure or not is irrelevant ... it's just not happening. Too many pockets being filled to suddenly be a cure for cancer!

As sad as that shit is, it's the sad truth.

You are being too cynical, clearly there are those who would like to keep making money off expensive and temp solutions. Still as you can see scientists continue to make progress while being funded by patrons who give a shit. $20 million is a lot of money to be spent on the next step, keep in mind that companies could still make shit load of money from this same cure. Probably the incentive behind those who are funding this.

you know what makes computers and androids special? they have filing systems and less restrictions. so no...the iphone is nothing in comparison to events from the 20th century. if anything, it is a direct slap in the face because it is more or less regressing. the technology is special sure but the software is stne age.

computers and the internet in general is a "big discovery" but if this was the actual cure to cancer I think it would definitely trump it in terms of importance/significance

I don't think people understand the rigor and battery of tests that need to be run before they move on to human testing. Even then, initial recipients aren't sick, they are healthy and those trials last months.
