Really? By any measure?
Let's put together how much has been spent on AIDS research and prevention from government and private sources since 1983 against what has been spent for cancer research and prevention for the same time period. Then let's divide each by the number of deaths from each disease for the same time period. You could not be more wrong.
And that is not counting the cost of $ 15 billion a year given to Africa to fight AIDS each year by us.
Cancer is still not defeated, whereas we have known how to cure AIDS/HIV for almost 25 years.AIDS could be stopped in its tracks by a simple change in behavior. Instead it has grown.
Cancer strikes for a myriad of reasons, only very few of which have to do with behavior.
