What an impact all the money and energy spent worldwide on the ISIS retaliation for its Paris mayhem, would have had on cancer, if it had been spent on destroying this plague. Worldwide, in the time since the Paris attack, how many tens of thousands of cancer victims have died ? The public reacts swiftly and in dramatic fashion, when in the scale of hundreds, a single incident of carnage is perpetrated by terrorists. But, death from cancer occurs in every hamlet, town, and city daily in numbers of staggering amounts. Nine million persons worldwide will die of cancer this year and over fourteen million are projected to die in the year 2030 from cancer. Wouldn't you think the World would get so exercised from these deaths and mobilize their individual countries to stifle this plague with the same intensity they gave to terrorists.
