Hope sells, and that's the only reason people keep pumping money into research programs that have not yielded anything substantial in over 60 years. So you have a better detection "test". Then what. Subject the patient to same old protocols that have been around for decades. The fact is, they're no closer to a real cure than they were in 1950. Follow the money trail; diagnostics, surgery, treatment, prescription drugs. There is no profit in finding a cure. As a matter of fact, it's detrimental to business and social agencies. Too many people living too long is an economic disaster.
