The top 10 deadliest cancers and why there's no cure

Post by SamCogar on Sat Sep 11, 2010 7:07 am

While there are many successful treatments today that didn't exist just a couple decades ago, a wholesale " cure for cancer " remains elusive for many reasons. There are more than 100 types of cancer, characterized by abnormal cell growth. There are many different causes, ranging from radiation to chemicals to viruses; an individual has varying degrees of control over exposure to cancer-causing agents.

Cancer cells, and how they grow, remain unpredictable and in some cases mysterious. Even after seemingly effective treatments, crafty cancer cells are able to hide out in some patients and resurface

Here's a look at the 10 cancers that killed the most people in the United States between 2003 and 2007, the most recent data available, according to the National Cancer Institute (NCI).

1. Lung and bronchial cancer: 792,495 lives
Lung and bronchial cancer is the top killer cancer in the United States. Smoking and use of tobacco products are the major causes of it, and it strikes most often between the ages of 55 and 65, according to the NCI. There are two major types: non-small cell lung cancer, which is the most common, and small cell lung cancer, which spreads more quickly.

If one starts smoking at the age of ten (10), and continues to do so, they are highly likely to get lung cancer at the age of 55 to 65 and die a horrible death.

If one starts smoking at the age of fifteen (15), and continues to do so, they are highly likely to get lung cancer at the age of 55 to 65 and die a horrible death.

If one starts smoking at the age of twenty (20), and continues to do so, they are highly likely to get lung cancer at the age of 55 to 65 and die a horrible death.

If one starts smoking at the age of twenty five (25), and continues to do so, they are highly likely to get lung cancer at the age of 55 to 65 and die a horrible death.

If one starts smoking at the age of thirty (30), and continues to do so, they are highly likely to get lung cancer at the age of 55 to 65 and die a horrible death.

If one starts smoking at the age of forty (40), and continues to do so, they are highly likely to get lung cancer at the age of 55 to 65 and die a horrible death.

Some people who never start smoking at any age, and never breathe in any secondhand cigarette smoke, are highly likely to get lung cancer at the age of 55 to 65 and die a horrible death.

Now my question is, . if smoking cigarettes is the major cause of lung cancer how does it know when to and/or why does that deadly lung cancer wait until the majority of its smoking victims attain the age of 55 to 65 before it starts to metastasize?


geek lol!
