There are billions of people in the world who will not get cancer, even millions in North America. I believe that more research is needed into healthy people to find out why they don't get cancer or hundreds of other diseases.
Wellness and physical health isn't achieved by luck or random chance. It's achieved by knowledge of "what health is" and intelligent application of basic principles. There's no magic formula to it.
I believe that an individual should be proactive about his own health and work on a program to improve his immune system and other systems of his/her body. On the subjects of naturopathy, nutrition and physical exercise, there are many products and regimens. One can use whatever foods, supplements and techniques that are most benefical to himself.
As a Medical Science test subject, however, one is simply acted upon by some unique "magic bullet" or "wonder pill." The "participant" simply goes with the flow and probably achieves the usual uncertain scientific results. Thousands of case studies are done this way.
It's good that the Canadian Government is going to assist cancer research and activities. If cancer prevention/minimization, truly becomes an applied scientific endeavour, millions of lives will be saved and billions of dollars too.
