Quote
Back in December, the United States and Cuba announced major steps to end their 50 years of hostility. And some researchers think Americans could reap an unexpected benefit: better access to Cuban medical innovations.

"The US may be the world leader in basic cancer research, biotechnology and treatment," explained Marga Gual Soler, who studies science diplomacy. "But Cuba has built a universal, free, and public health-care system, has the highest number of medical doctors per capita in the world, a robust biotechnology industry developed with very low resources, and guaranteed access to drugs and advanced diagnostics for the population."

One of the first diplomatic exchanges will involve Cimavax, a lung cancer vaccine first developed in Cuba. But it doesn't work for prevention like a traditional vaccine; instead, it stimulates the immune system in a different way, to stop cancers from growing within people who already have the disease. Researchers down there found that the vaccine increased survival rates and had few side effects in patients with late-stage disease.

First they'll cure our lung cancer, then they'll nationalize our multinational corporations!

Real Americans would rather die of lung cancer than be cured by some sort of Communist voodoo magic.

I guess Marco Rubio and Bob Menendez are pro-lung cancer.
