Question: can serious diseases such as cancer and diabetes be completely cured
cancer, cure, diabetes, disease
Asked by 844mutg26 to Thomas, Sinead on 15 Nov 2016. This question was also asked by Piercia.
answered on 15 Nov 2016:
A very good question. Scientists have made great strides to treat/cure cancers for example breast cancer but not so much for lung cancer. Diabetes is treated by daily injections of insulin.
answered on 16 Nov 2016:
I think scientific research will eventually cure these diseases. Some organisation like the Irish Cancer Society have a motto “we won’t give up until cancer does”.
Scientists are committed to finding the cure.
Doh -just realised I answered this question twice…
Sinead commented on 15 Nov 2016:
I agree with Thomas, cancer survival has hugely increased in the last 40 years.
However, cancer cells can be determined to survive and they can change themselves to become resistant to drugs so we need to keep researching for new cures to overcome the drug resistance that they develop.
