    Of course they also don't want it eradicated. Cancer patients is a good source of income.

    One can't predict DNA mutations, hence, there is no way to prevent them at least for now. Therefore, goal of eradication becomes also very difficult to achieve IMHO.

    Eradication is different from curing though. There can still be a cure for cancer, just no way of preventing it from ever occurring.

    Everything that ails us had to start somewhere, and much has been conquered.
    Age is no protection against eradication.
