      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.

      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…
