The Other Side of Cancer Alley – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans

If human knowledge and medical technology keep progressing, it stands to reason that eventually we’re going to figure out how to cure even the most difficult diseases, like cancer.

Yes, it’s optimistic, but it’s also logical. What is, perhaps, less expected is that this knowledge would come from Louisiana.
