Cancer Moon Shot

Authors: Rodney Bartlett

During his State of the Union address on January 12, 2016, (USA) President Barack Obama announced the establishment of a Cancer Moonshot to accelerate cancer research. The initiative—led by (USA) Vice President Joe Biden—aims to make more therapies available to more patients, while also improving our ability to prevent cancer and detect it at an early stage. ( Here's an interdisciplinary approach to defeating cancer – indeed, illness and death regardless of cause – that puts together a lot of previously written material of mine. It relies not only on biology but also on physics, mathematics - and even topics such as gravity, cosmology and radioactivity. Albert Einstein, one of the world's greatest physicists, once said he regretted not being able to make a bigger contribution to medical science. Over 60 years after his death, the time may be ripe for his theories to take part in solving perhaps the greatest challenge facing modern clinical medicine – cancer.
