    IS THERE ANY more tantalizing headline than “Scientists Discover a Cure for Cancer”? Some version of this fantastical claim has been dropped into the news cycle with the regularity of a super blood wolf moon for the better part of a century. In 1998, James Watson told The New York Times that a cancer cure would arrive by Y2K. This magazine hasn’t been immune either, running an “End of Cancer” headline a few years later. Each instance stirs up hope for patients and their families desperate to find a solution, no matter the risk or cost. And yet, here we are in 2019, with that constellation of complex, diverse diseases we lump together and call “cancer” for convenience's sake still killing one in eight men and one in 11 women, according to the World Health Organization’s latest stats.

    According to the U.S. National Cancer Institute, over 200 different cancer types have been identified...and that number continues to grow. There are 12 different types of leukemia, and 9 different types of head & neck cancers. So, for any one to make a blanket claim that they've discovered "a complete cure" for cancer is....well...downright ludicrous!!!
