This will happen, according to Nobel Prize winner James Watson, pioneer in DNA studies, in the article below.
Actually, since the article dates from 2011, maybe it could therefore happen in 2-7 years, if he's right?
Of course predictions are great, but often don't work out. I only post this one because this guy is a Nobel Prize winner, so maybe that gives him a little more credibility in the prediction department. Sure hope he's right.
This article is especially interesting to us because he talks about
his own case of prostate cancer which was active when he made this prediction.www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2011/05/cure_for_cancer_possible_in_5.html
(BTW, Watson is still alive as of this posting, age 86. Following his breakthrough work in DNA, he has over the years been active in the Human Genome Project and has published on the role of oxidants in cancer formation. PCa sure didn't slow him down any, that's for sure!)
