Cancer is a general term for diseases that affect various parts of the human body differently. Due to this, it is difficult for researchers to develop a single approach to treat all types of cancer.
The cure of cancer does not only include treatment but requires support from the health and social sector too. The reason is that human behaviours trigger cancer and can be modified through lifestyle changes.
Researchers believe that digital technology has the potential to collect data on five main human behaviours of alcohol consumption, tobacco use, overeating, no physical exercise and living in pollution. After understanding these specific behaviours, researchers can develop a personalised approach to treat cases that are the exception today.
At the molecular level, cancer does not have a cure because the foreign toxins that cause cancer have the ability to mask themselves behind normal cells. This ability does not allow the immune system to find toxic foreign particles and attack them. Moreover, the masking ability of the foreign bodies causes cancer to reoccur.
The masking of cancer cells is the main reason that raises the question of whether there will ever be a cure for cancer.
However, a lot of research is undergoing that targets the unmasking of the masked toxic foreign bodies to make the future of cancer research hopeful.
