“We believe we will offer in a year’s time a complete cure for cancer.”

Israeli scientists think they found the cure for cancer

According to The Jerusalem Report, Israeli researchers believe they may have found a cure for cancer, with little to no side-effects, and effective from day one. Some are arguing that this is nonsense.

Frankly, the ability of unpublished research from a no-name company to garner this type of attention stunned me. And really made me angry. I had two relatives reach out to me asking if I had heard the good news. Injecting this kind of hype into science is good for no one. It gives patients false expectations. It gives researchers perverse incentives to sensationalize their findings. It makes the already hard business of developing effective medicines more difficult than it needs to be.
