Steve Jobs was a celebrity. I cite a celebrity example and you mock it?
Whats the difference between one million and one billion? Either they have something for you, for your specific or they don't. Either whatever they
have is done properly or it isn't. There isn't one type of cancer, there are hundreds along with thousands
of cell line offspring. Some are
worse than others. You keep on spinning this is simpleton terms, that cancer is some singular thing, while I'm the one screaming complexity. (except
for that one single sentence in the OP that all of your dialog seems based specifically on)
Pancreatic cancer is widely regarded as one the the worst to kill, one of the worst killers. Probably one of the rarer organs to even get it. Breast
cancer is widely encountered and understood. Stage of diagnosis is everything, although my celebrity example didn't catch it until way late and look
at him smoke. And never mind the front room and back room across the board advances sure to happen by the time Jolie reaches her moms age of death.
The fact that they understand this gene means gene therapies are around or will be (this is the part that really had me scratching my head over this
story, by the way). Gene therapy induced immortality is one of the big time transhumanist dreams, and you can bet Jolie, Jobs and Douglas are all
plenty familiar with such notions.
If cancer isn't properly wasted the first time, it can be a disaster when it comes back (as happened with Jobs it appears). You're clearly the expert
on not only cancer, but the history of Jobs battle, all those details, as well as his position in the elitist hierarchy so please stop sounding so
simple and crush me with your authoritative expert analysis and quit baiting me, since you're clearly so above the 'baiting' that tongue-in-cheekingly
occurred in the OP.
