The Cause versus the cure

Know Thyself: Tracking Every Facet of Life, from Sleep to Mood to Pain, 24/7/365

Cool. Just read the Wired Piece. Love the idea of what it could do.

This is one example that comes to mind. I'm very annoyed at the colour PINK these days.
Much seems to all have to do with the big C (cancer, that's right). It seems that PINK is also being used for bullies which nicely describes the C.

Millions and millions of dollars are being raised and yet we seem to be going backwards. The objective, to me, is wrong in most cases - I don't want a cure, I want to know the cause. Then the cure.

Now if there was a way to self track yourself so that just maybe, must maybe we could identify the triggers for theC I'd be into self tracking.

The cancer everyone seems to be getting is most likely something that we created ourselves - it could be GMOed foods, the ingredients in our cosmetics, the chemicals in our plastics, the drycleaning solvents, the fumes from our cars or maybe a particular area that you grew up in or lived for a significant amount of time.

If we could self track and compile and compare maybe we would come closer to finding the cause versus the cure.
