Summary:
Although the United States seems to be progressing more than ever in both culture and science, more people are getting cancer than in prior history. Not only are there more cancer patients, but the majority of cancer patients in the U.S. rely on traditional treatments such as Chemotherapy and Radiation. In eastern societies, not only are there fewer cases overall, but they tend to rely on eastern medicine treatments such as herbs and different foods as treatment options. Even though billions of dollars are being raised to aid in cancer research in the U.S. alone, it is not often you hear about new advancements that change the landscape. This project explores people’s attitudes towards cancer and its cure based on demographics such as age.
