Cancer breakthrough at last?

These days there always seems to be something in the news about the latest cancer breakthrough but nothing seems to have the real answer - until now!

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/m...er/4423847.stm

It seems at last there IS light at the end of the tunnel.

And there's me thinking "It's grim up North"!!!

I just hope to god they get the funding they need to push the research through - it would be criminal for us to throw away all their hard work.

I thought OTHER STUFF meant just that!!!

Also I thought that ANY breakthrough in cancer treatments would be of interest to everyone - having lost my mother to this terrible disease and also being scared to death of getting it myself I thought it may have been of interest.

Yep, 15 new speedhumps that slow down ambulances so leading to more deaths on the way to hospital and a saving for the tax payer because less treatment is required.

That reminds me of a story that was in the local news around here: they put speed bumps going through a village. This village happened to be near a factory which had lorries going to and from it 24 hours a day, so of course, all the locals got p**sed off becasue of the noiuse the lories were making going over the bumps. Solution: spend another 250000 digging them up and resurfacing the road.

What a joke!

Lets invade the IOW, kick off any interbred people and claim it Independant!

Cheap pretrol, good healthcare where you dont get a flesh eating virus, no stupid wars, no reality TV, Speed limits or Bus lanes!

My idea so I will be dictator (um president)

Pah! We can all rattle on about RIBS, hardboats, and whatever else to do with boats. You must be one of the lucky ones who hasn't experienced first hand the DISGUSTING, FOUL, SOUL & BODY DESTRUCTING disease that is Cancer!

I think you will find your comments on this subject are not welcome!
