Cynical me can't wait for big pharma to put this type of procedure behind a ridiculous paywall or ensure it fails FDA testing or something equally shady

This isn't really true, if a pharma company created a cure for cancer it would make them an insane amount of money because it would be universally used with no competition. As it is now, cancer treatment is full of competition. This conspiracy theory doesn't really play out. A more likely conspiracy theory, if a pharma company created a cure would be that company investing in marketing sectors that cause cancer, tobacco, alcohol etc...because then they be creating their own customers.

Unless of course, they already have the cure and mutually agreed there's more money in making treatments

Precisely, their options are make some money or make more money.

There's money in treating cancer, not in curing it after all.

Curing cancer is a hell of a lot harder that treating it. If by cure you mean preventing cancer. Treating cancer, aka 'curing cancer', is easier.

I mean, if this works, theoretically you could do it yourself in a very sloppy way. You just trade death for sickness
