Some types, like lung cancer. But how about breast cancer? On the other hand, HIV/AIDS is completely preventable.

Cancer just seems so much harder to cure, because even though environmental factors play into it, some people are just genetically predisposed to having it. I've had like 4 cousins die of cancer on my father's side of the family, so I think thats why I would choose cancer.

But HIV is not completely preventable either. HIV/AIDS can pass from mother to unborn baby while growing inside the womb.

Yes, it's preventable for the mother but it's not preventable from the baby's point of view

I know what you mean but, medical intervention greatly reduces the risk of mother to child transmission.

I'm not arguing the fact that HIV is more preventable the cancer.

I was just pointing the fact that some types of cancer are preventable too because many people in this thread used the "HIV is preventable" as a reason as in cancer is not preventable at all

Anyway my answer is Cancer too.

Cancer kills, HIV/AIDS does not

What the fuck though at so many people just saying outright HIV/AIDS is preventable. There's several ways someone could get it and it not be bad decision making. A child getting it from their mother, getting infected blood from a blood transfusion, etc. IMO implicit in that thinking is people who get HIV might not deserve treatment as much because it's their fault.

I think STDs are seen as more of an issue of individual morality, as opposed to general public health issues.
