cindi o'h Posted October 17, 2006 Share Posted October 17, 2006 While I was in high school, one of the favorite debate themes was spending money on funding research of the outer limits (sending man to the moon) or spending money on cancer research and ultimately cure. Here we are 30 years(can you believe it?) later and we have yet to discover Martians or a cure for cancer. I feel... I don't know how I feel. Hopeless is the word, maybe. I feel disappointed, I guess. Will there EVER be a cure for cancer? With all the great minds and work done in this area, there seems to be no cure in sight. After listening to our high school debaters, I was on the side of cancer research and forgetting about the man in the moon. Would there be a global cancer cure if all the money that had been spent on space programs had been funneled into cancer research? Really, I don't think so.
