Emotional answer. I would definitely cure cancer because it has affected me and the people around me.

HIV/AIDS.

Mainly because the great proportion of sufferers are in the developing world and have no access to any form of treatment what so ever. Also AIDS is probably one the worst illnesses in the modern world, which has some pretty horrific side affects some of which can include cancer. A lot more people who get cancer now days are able to survive due to medical advances which allow for treatment while there is, in reality, no treatment for AIDS.

Re: Hypothetical: If you could cure Cancer or HIV/AIDS, which would you cure?

Interesting.

I think when most ppl think of HIV/AIDS, they talk about it in terms of morality - many of you have said that is preventable - I think at the core, people link having HIV/AIDS to bad decision making. Cancer is seen as a public health issue, no value judgments are placed on people with cancer because the perception is that anybody can get it, its partially genetic, and its not necessarily their fault, etc. But bad decisions can make a person more susceptible to both, and your risk of having and dying from both are largely dependent on your social position in society.

I would choose cancer though, because it has been around for way longer than HIV/AIDS and we still have not been able to prevent it. I think we will find a cure for HIV/AIDS one day.

In the minority here but I'd go with HIV/AIDS.

Half of all types of Cancer are actually preventable too.
