Cancer a Very Lucrative Business?

With enough patients “it becomes a very lucrative system,” Mr. Phillips, a sales manager with Optivus Proton Therapy, said at the meeting of the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology held here in late last year . Referring to one proton center that treats up to 175 patients a day, he added, “You can imagine what the return on investment is on that.”

Mr. Phillip: If by chance you happen to be one of the 2,400,000 Americans that will become new victims of cancer every year, I would like to interview you and ask you "How does it feel becoming "Very Lucrative" business?"

Can you imagine getting old and having cancer? then you would be twice as lucrative, your name might even make it on Info USA advertised lists of “Elderly Opportunity Seekers,” 3.3 million older people “looking for ways to make money,” and “Suffering Seniors,” 4.7 million people with cancer or Alzheimer’s disease. “Oldies but Goodies” contained 500,000 gamblers over 55 years old, for 8.5 cents apiece. One list said: “These people are gullible. They want to believe that their luck can change.”

What if you are old, have cancer and get Alzheimer's ? Would this list sell at premium? Story originally published on E.A here=>>

With the current financial crisis we expect Cancer to become an even more of a lucrative business for those that have that other disease "Greed".
