Fandango Provocative Question #27

Fandango’s Question this week;

“If you could choose one — and only one — particular malady, condition, or disease for which a safe and effective treatment was available, what one condition would you choose to treat and why is that your choice?”

My response;

I have read many responses from people on this question. Many have chosen illnesses which affected them or their loved ones which is quite natural. We will want what is causing pain and discomfort to us or our family to be gone. And if a cure is discovered for it to completely eradicate it, what could be better!

But there are so many diseases in the world today which are the cause of mortality and morbidity. The first and the major one is cancer. It is a disease which strikes terror in the heart of a person when they hear of the possibility of having it. There are so many faces of this disease, some of them treatable and some even curable. The number and types of malignant disease is growing daily and so are the number of people effected by it. Some doctors have come up with cure for a type of cancer while billions of dollars are being spent in research every year for this type of disease. I would say if people discovered a cure/ treatment for cancer all forms it would save many lives.

On the other hand, on a completely personal note, I would love for someone to come up with a cure for obesity….. Anyone???

  1. You, like Dr. Tanya of “Salted Caramel” hit on a condition that causes so many other diseases – obesity can lead to heart problems, diabetes, joint (knees and hips) degradation, immobility problems and stigma from society and how they tend to view the ‘fat’ person. Thank you for choosing one (I know cancer is immensely ‘bad’) that a lot of people can relate to. And I still say YOU aren’t ‘fat’.
