I wonder how much the "war on cancer" is just maintained to keep researchers employed? The NIH has been criticized for being far too timid in its funding for research, preferring safe projects to really blue sky ones.

Now I am well aware cancer is a tough nut to crack, because it is not a disease, but a failure of the normal apoptosis mechanism in the cell to work. But we are making headway and I do expect some headway to be made now that we can tackle the problem using much deeper knowledge of how th ecell works and how to measure each component.
