Re: FUTUR PREDICTIONS (Amigos)
BTexact's Ian Pearson makes all these predictions, and I do not doubt that some of them will actually happen. Simply because of the volume of predictions made.
"...Barbie dolls which will be able to talk to little girls when they are upset and ask what is wrong." - Don't bring any of these things anywhere near me! This would remind me of Chucky far too much.
As for a post in a thread above - Most cancers are already treatable. If you meant curable, this is also true - it just depends at what stage of the disease the diagnosis occurs (e.g. a diagnosis when the disease is at Stage II has a better prognosis when it is diagnosed at Stage IV (distant, invasive metastases)).
More widespread screening of a wider range of cancers will result in a massive decrease of deaths from Cancer, and knowing how much is spent yearly on R&D for the development of drugs, this would be a cheaper long term bet. But, of course, this isn't where the money is at :)
