Here's an article better describing the wormwood-based cancer theory:
"We are very excited about the UW’s discovery and an opportunity to develop an artemisinin-based cancer drug,” Kevin Mak, chief scientist at Holley, said. “The technology is very promising, but it’s in its early stages. Further research and clinical trials are needed.”

While most of you are stressing that there is too much money to be lost with a cure, I certainly don't disagree with that at all, however it's also my honest opinion that Cancer and Aids especially are merely a good form of population control. I don't know how many people have died worldwide as a result of these illnesses in the past 20 years alone, but I'll bet the numbers would be quite a significant amount.
