The government most likely has the cure to cancer due to the fact that they hide many things from us (us as in the people) ,for example I did some research on Area 51 and 10 credible sources said that there were aliens found there. What about the mermaid they found back in 2011? What if everything they tell us is a lie ,for example no cure for cancer, they wouldn't make a good profit if they gave it away, so the won't release the cure. I am not saying that the government has the cure for cancer, but this is what I believe. Please keep in mind this might not be good, but I'm in 7th grade advanced classes learning how to do argument essays.

Before we ask ourselves whether we think that the government has the cure to cancer or not, let's think. Why would the government profit from this? You could argue that the companies would, but the government wouldn't really profit that much. Plus, even the most minor secrets slip through with the help of hacker groups or even employees who don't keep their mouths shut. It would be a huge struggle to keep this a secret.

In addition, do you really think that the scientists who apparently found the cure would keep it a secret? They would be praised as one of the biggest minds in history and get the Nobel prize and I'm pretty sure any scientist would be willing to take the risks to announce this to the world if there were a cure he found that was being kept secret.

To add, cancer is unlike any disease. Every one of your billions of cells are potential cancer cells. It's not like a virus or a bacteria that can easily be cured. There are thousands of scientists working on the cure right now, have you ever heard of one of them disappearing because they found the 'cure'?

Not only is saying that we have found a cure to cancer already a far fetch, saying the government is hiding this from us is silly because of the reasons stated above.

Yes the government probably has the cure for cancer, but they wont tell any one because they earn so much money by all the advertisement they have. The pink ribbon and the T-Shirts etc. They make lots of money by that. So getting the cure for cancer stops all that money from producing.
