Why Haven’t We Found a Cure for Cancer Yet?

It’s been 2,400 years ago since cancer was first recorded by Greek physician Hippocrates and possibly even longer from the time the first treatment was tested. Today, we still haven’t found a cure for the second leading cause of death in Americans – according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. If traditional medicine was unable to invent a cure for this long, it looks like a potent antidote will require every recently gathered knowledge about human genome, microbiology and modern medicine.
