What does this statement mean to you?

Somebody tweeted this

What if the cure for cancer is trapped inside the mind of someone who can't afford an education ?

Got into an argument about it. Does this statement make sense to you?

It means the originator is advocating for more affordable or accessible edcuation for all. That is what the statement means.

end of thread, really, as the question as to whether this is doable, or affordable, etc is a debate for the poli thread.

It means we should round up all the impoverished people and give them CAT scans.

Right, but the person who I argued with took the literal meaning of it, which we got into an argument about.

It means we should slice open the heads of the poor to see if they've got the cure for cancer trapped in there.

Re: What does this statement mean to you?

Round up poor people. Lop off their heads. Inspect heads for the cure. Hope to find it. Reproduce it.

If it's found, name the cure after the person who found it.
If it's not found, at least there's less poor people.

Re: What does this statement mean to you?

There is no cure for cancer. You always have mini tumors popping up its just the way of the animal body. Its kinda like bacteria where our bodies are always fighting against them and taking out the threat. The problem is letting our bodies or immune system become so weak that it cant take out the threats anymore and these organisms spread and wreak havoc on the body.

Obviously some cant be helped when the body is just born weak for whatever reason but the main thing a person can do is keep the body strong both emotionally (think stress, its based in emotion) and physically.


The biggest thing a person can do is cut way back on stress and cut back on the overconsumption and exposure to carcinogens. The best thing a person can do to help their bodies fight these enemies of the body is just make the body strong again thru training the mind and body.

Affirmations, meditation, working out, hanging with loved ones and cutting out all the bull**** in life that will drag you down emotionally and physically.


With this you can prevent the major killers which are highly influenced by lifestyle in the developed countries as well as set up the body so its in the best state to heal itself. This is not a call to not go to doctors, this is comprehensive preventative care as well as training for the sick to achieve the best state possible for remission. Every doctor and psychologists worth their salt should know at least a little of how to train humans as well as be ready to send their patients to a trainer.
