I tend to think that the way we treat things medically, have allowed "bad" genes to be continually passed along. But I also realize that there are so many more conversations that go into that, that I don't want to get into.
I would like to think that we could put some of our "wasted" funds towards further understanding mental health, as I think that could be the root of alot of problems.
Cancer could be eradicated within a few decades. We certainly won't have to live with it forever. One day it will be seen in the same capacity we currently view Polio. Nanotechnology will ensure that. It will be our "Magic pill". For that and countless other scenarios that cause cellular damage.
