yeah i know all this, was just feeling annoyed that there never seems to be any real progress in cancer. and yes i know there are so many different ones, i dont really blame the doctors i actually meant that a cure for cancer would take away many jobs in the medical field.<quoted text>
I didn't say that.
What the RESEARCH says is that even one drink a day can contribute to the growth of one type of breast cancer -- hormone sensitive breast cancer. That's what I had, so I rarely drink. I didn't drink much before because I just couldn't afford the calories but now I really think three times. However, I do have an occasional glass of wine.
I completely disagree that any doctor I have ever met would prefer profits to a cure. Yes, they make a lot of money, but they earn it.
There will never be "a" cure to "cancer" because cancer is just a TYPE of disease. There are thousands of different kinds. Each one has its own treatment in one way or another. They won't "cure" "breast cancer" tomorrow but maybe they'll find a cure -- or even better, a prevention, for one subtype. Then they can start on the next subtype.
Saying you have cancer is like saying you have heart or lung disease. There are many kinds of heart and lung diseases with many different causes and many different solutions.
For those with a history of hormone sensitive breast cancer, they're much better off not drinking.
its just all frustrating and makes a person feel so helpless..
sorry guess i was just in a mood yesterday. didnt mean to upset u or anything. its an upsetting subject and can make a person feel real anger at times.
take care, best of luck too.
