    I'm a mechanical engineer, I know damn well how cancer works.

They also do research into areas that are not profitable. Small start ups often buy licensing for this research and are able to get orphan drug status and make meager returns that will fund future bigger projects.

    People often complain that cancer is not cured yet. What people don't realize is that cancer is not one disease, it is thousands of diseases. A person doesn't get cancer. They get one cancerous cell type which responds to one type of therapy. We may have excellent treatments for one cell type or mechanism, but not for thousands of others. It is like complaining that we haven't cured brain diseases. It is just too broad and simplistic a view. Cancer is just one example.

    And if you think drugs cost too much, I encourage you to start your own pharmaceutical company.

    - i ordered these items because:

    1) i needed a small 3-cup mixing bowl w/handle and pour lip (perfect for whisking dressings, making salsa and/or scrambled eggs)
    2) i have not seen a covered mug w/infuser in any local store
    3) the prices weren't bad
    4) targét.com packs nicely and ships quickly
    5) because of the color
    6) because of the charitible contribution

    - received the items today

    - the mix/pour bowl is very nice, sturdy, freezer/oven/micro safe

    - the covered tea cup will also brew rough-ground java w/no problem *and* keep your coffee warm; again a nice product, also safe for micro...

    - JMHO, YMMV...
    glad you like them linux_author.
    Leave your treadmill power trip behind.
