theoretically, HIV could disappear with hardcore measurements; i think i have heard that in 50 years every third person will have some kind of cancer

If the blood is always tested before transfusion, which it is now, spread of HIV can be prevented. If a HIV positive woman knowingly gets pregnant then she should be arrested imo. If she doesn't know then the pregnancy should be terminated.

Cancer can be genetic. A daughter whose Mother has/had breast cancer will almost always develop cancer.

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

It's like comparing 200 diseases with 1... I'd chose cancer. While developing countries don't have access to meds for HIV they also don't have them for any type of cancer or basically any "big" disease at all. Some forms of cancer are very much treatable but some of them are just too destructive (pancreatic, lungs...).
While I understand that babies in developing countries can't chose whether they'll have HIV or not most cases of HIV could be prevented. Nobody choses to have cancer. It's also not preventable in the same way as HIV.

By the way, I was reading the other day about a portuguese guy who found a protein, a single protein that when changed could kill cancer cells in about 9 hours...

here's the video:

Really interesting
