    Researchers at Cardiff University that were in the midst of analyzing blood from a bank accidentally stumbled into an "entirely new type of T-cell", according to The Daily Wire. The new cell carries a "never before seen" type of receptor that acts like a grappling hook, latching on to most human cancers.

    Amazing. A previously unidentified T-cell type that functions as a cancer cell cleaner has been found.

    This is like finding you have another member of your household you never knew about. Makes one question what
    all that money being spent on medical research is being spent on...

    You do realize that medical research is a complex thing?

    Cancer is a gerneral term and it's not one thing to cure .

    There are lots of different kinds of cancer in different tissues that act in different ways "more than 200 individual diseases fall under the cancer umbrella. They are not all caused by the same mutations and they’re not all going to respond to the same type of treatment ,two types of cancer could occur in the same organ, but they might not behave or react to the same treatment. And genetics can further complicate detection, diagnosis, and treatment.

    You are nitpicking and basically wrong. Cancer is the set of human cells which stop serving the differentiated role they were performing as part of any of the multitude
    of tissue types (brain, liver, skin, etc.) and have gone literally rogue, acting as independent bacterial elements. A central feature of these rogue cells is that they ignore
    signals to self terminate, which all normal body cells obey. The mere existence of specialized T cells that target such rogue cells indicates that there are generic
    structural differences in the rogue cell membranes associated with their aberration.

    The immune system and cancer link has been known for a long time. The immune system does act to contain cancer. Some people with the right genetics are
    more immune to cancers than others. Of course, being exposed to sufficient mutagenic actors such as chemicals and radiation can overwhelm any metabolism
    but that is neither here, nor there since most people are not singularly exposed. But cancer still hits 1 in 3 people.

    The interesting issue is whether modern chemical contamination of the ambient environment and various highly processed food diets somehow act to suppress
    the T cells designed to fight cancer cells. It has been demonstrated that trans-fats do suppress the immune system. So one of the causes of the cancer pandemic
    is more than certain to be disruption of the immune system.
