New Government Cancer Task Force to Increase Spending and Mandate Ineffective TreatmentsCancer is a $125 BILLION dollar industry that is growing, not declining. The industry is dependent on more cancer patients, not less. A "cure" for cancer would put millions of people out of work, and destroy the U.S. economy. At the beginning of the last century, one person in twenty would get cancer. In the 1940s it was one out of every sixteen people. In the 1970s it was one person out of ten. Today one person out of three gets cancer in the course of their life, and that percentage will soon be one out of two. With the regime change in American politics about to take place, it appears that the outgoing administration is attempting to empower the pharmaceutical industry, perhaps in an attempt to secure future careers beyond politics. We recently saw evidence of this with the lame-duck Congress passing the 21st Century Cures Act. Outgoing Vice President Joseph Biden recently released the first report of a new government cancer task force, the Cancer Moonshot Task Force. We had investigative health reporter John P. Thomas look into just what this task force entails for the American public, and it appears that it increases cancer spending resulting in more profits for pharmaceutical companies, depends on no cures, and potentially will remove medical privacy and give government power to punish people who do not follow their medical advice.
