Breakthroughs happen at the level of pure science (=theory) but cancer research has degenerated into an entrepreneurial frenzy of technology-driven data collection. Pairing this expensive activity with inexpensive theory could boost progress.

Dogs naturally get cancer - >1million per year diagnosed and treated.Old, young,various genetics,share our environment and suffer complications and side-effects of treatment. Dogs represent an authentic model of human cancer and have similar biology.
There is a lot of research outside of the United States that suggests that cell towers can cause cancer and other illnesses for the people who live close to them.
I have heard that there is a correlation between life-expectancy and levels of D-vitamin. Is there a correlation between D-vitamin and cancer? Are certain types of cancer more rare among people that has optimal levels of D-vitamin?
I have heard that color/tattoo pigment can be seen in the bonemarrow if a person recently has made a tattoo. What are the consequenses of this on cells in the bonemarrow, lymfnodes, spleen, liver and in the skin/dermis?
Treating cancer calls for a critical balance between the efficacy of the drugs and their side effects from toxicity, which is patient-specific. Implementing requires quantitative understanding through mathematical models of patient background.
To help ensure the highest level of care is provided, and to further reduce cost, CSC requests that the NCI make an investment to research psychosocial and behavioral health components affecting cancer patients.
Over 80% of cancer clinical trials are null or negative despite promising preclinical results. We are rushing to the clinic without doing the due diligence of fine-tuning the treatment strategy preclinically,
80% of cancer patients are treated in community hospitals and clinics. We need a centralized open-source, open-access biorepository managed by brokers with no vested interests other than accelerating the search for cures to help patients today.
Current cohorts miss critical windows of exposure for understanding cancer development. New cohorts which cover the life course are needed to achieve precision cancer prevention.
Independent science and the US NTP study have concluded that non-ionizing radiation is indeed causing cancer. Considering wireless radiation surrounds all Americans daily we must tackle this serious issue now with a prevention program.
