Dear Scientist, Things “do not ADD UP”: For the world’s most deadly and costly calamity, CANCER (6.5M premature deaths/year, $1.4 trillion/year cost):
b) Data reveal NO difference in mortality rate in countries which spend or do NOT spend money on eliminating cancer.
c) Taxpayer and donation money is funding projects which are known from the start are unable to reduce cancer deaths, and projects that would reduce cancer deaths, ARE NOT FUNDED.
d) The best imaging technique (PET) is based on particle detection measuring sensitivity, but articles and funding are approved to increase PET spatial resolution to the detriment of sensitivity.
e) A significant advance in early detection requires a breakthrough in particle detection, but the 3D-Flow-OPRT breakthrough has been ignored.
f) CERN-LHC must admit, 22 years after the invention of the 3D-Flow-OPRT, to having taken the wrong direction, wasting $50B. Now they are making the same mistake with FPGA, wasting an additional $30B.
g) Cancer leaders must admit, 14 years after the invention of the 3D-CBS, to having taken the wrong direction, resulting in the needless loss of millions of lives and trillions of dollars, wasted. Now they are making the same mistake with the EXPLORER, which cannot save many lives due to its high cost and lower sensitivity compared to the 3D-CBS.
Because it is a scientist’s code of ethics and because you receive the public’s trust and are paid by taxpayers and donors, please support TRANSPARENCY in SCIENCE in PUBLIC WORKSHOPS to identify solutions that “ADD UP”, or resign from positions paid by taxpayers and donors and give control to competent scientists who agree to serve the public interest? Thank you.
