No More Cancer Deaths In 20 Years?

So says an Aussie expert. John Shine proposes that since we're able to target particular genes using 'smart drugs' we should be able to extend this benefit in the fight against cancer.

Shine is clear that he doesn't expect that people won't get cancer, but rather that they won't die from it. This is an interesting theory, and I hope he's right, but to be honest I'm still waiting for my jetpack ;)
