If someone invented a cure for cancer or aids could they win the nobel peace prize?

I鈥檓 sure they would, but there will never be a magic bullet that cures all cancers. The problem with finding a cure is that cancer is hundreds of diseases, not just one. Different cancers are caused by different things, so no one strategy can prevent them, and different cancers respond to different treatments so no one treatment can cure them all.

Some cancers can already be cured. Seven out of ten children are cured of cancer. Testicular cancer, Hodgkin's disease, and many cases of leukaemia can all be cured in adults with chemotherapy, most skin cancers are cured with surgery, and many cases of thyroid cancer and cancer of the larynx are cured with radiotherapy.and many other types of cancer are also cured if they are found early enough.

Predictably the conspiracy theorists have begun to answer this question.

There have been no banned or hidden cancer cures, and nobody has been paid to shut up about their cancer cure - some quack treatments have been banned though to prevent charlatans making money form ineffective and sometimes dangerous 'treatments'.

Just think about the conspiracy theory for a moment.

In order to prove that any secret, hidden cure worked, several hundred people would have to have been cured by it (otherwise how would its discoverers know it worked?). Every single one of these people would be keeping quiet about it鈥?not a word to the media from any of them, or any of their delighted relatives and friends.

And drug companies would be keeping quiet about the cure too, even though it would bring them fame and fortune. Any drug company discovering a cure would make far more money than they can have dreamed of making up till now.

Doctors, scientists, researchers etc would be watching their relatives die and dying themselves (they and their families develop cancer at the same rate as the rest of the population) rather than revealing the existing secret cure

Most unlikely of all, every medical professional in the whole world would have agreed to keep existence of a cure secret. Every single one. One blabbermouth, one disgruntled researcher or sacked nurse and the whole conspiracy鈥檚 blown. Newspapers and other media wouldn't have got a sniff of it. Likely? -and is it likely that these people, who went into medicine to help people, would be conspiring to kill them? If they wanted to make a fortune, medicine was a very poor choice of career.

And governments? Consider this: I live in the UK. I had surgery, chemo and radiotherapy. I paid not one penny for it, because we have a national health service; the state paid for it. We have exactly the same treatments as people in America, whence these conspiracy theories usually come. BELIEVE ME, if there were an effective cure, they'd pick that over expensive chemo; as it is I may be back some time with a recurrence to cost them even more money. And my oncologist, my surgeon, my family doctor all drew exactly the same salary during my treatment as they would have had I never had cancer, so they wouldn鈥檛 benefit from any conspiracy to hide a cure.

The 'secret cure' conspiracy theory is a sort of game played by people who have not had cancer.

yes they would

Absolutely they would.

No they wouldn't as they will quietly be paid out a large amount of monies to keep quiet and to forget about it, as this is what has happened in the past. Cancer rakes in big dollars world wide by people who are desperate to try anything for a cure. Yes it stinks but what can us small people do about it?.

The nobel prize is given out to people who make a difference for the world. Often it is given for research performed decades ago, but now is seen to be a breakthrough. Yes a person who would cure such a disease would certainly be up for the prize.

unless they get shutdown and get paid a lot to keep it hidden, deffanitly they would!

yes i think they would aides and cancer are the #1 reason for people dying in this world today especially aids. not only in the us but in the foreign countries too. yes it is sad but true. i think anyone who finds a cure for these diseases should get a noble prize. martha s

If you can win a Nobel peace prize for making a movie with half truths, then most definitely a cure for cancer would get one.

They would certainly deserve to win the Nobel Peace Prize.......and then some!!
Unfortunately, I'm one of the people who believes they have already discovered a cure for cancer and it hasn't been made public or available. Do some research into that and you'll be amazed at what you find out!
There is big big money in cancer and we might see situations where certain medications or treatments cause remissions but I don't think we will ever see a cure.
I think this is in the same category as being kept in the dark about U.F.O.s
There are some things that the powers that be just don't want us to have/know.

Note: I'm not just a pessimistic, negative human being! My husband died from cancer and it was through the course of his illness that I did research.

No. They would win the Nobel Prize for Medicine.
