This is not proof. This is just people making claims. Anecdotal evidence at best.

And if a pharmaceutical company found the cure for cancer, they'd release it. Why? Because they'd make would make so many billions of dollars, they'd be the biggest company in the world inside of a year or two. They'd pretty much put all of their cancer fighting competition out of business and monopolize the market. Their stock price would skyrocket. The stockholders would be rolling in their investment.

Plus you better believe the heads of that company would be on the cover of every magazine and newspaper. We're talking daily presence in the news, Nobel Prize, talk show appearances, and praise as saviors. If there's one thing a CEO likes more than money, it's glory and attention. You couldn't pay them enough to pass this up.
Tedious and endless cancer treatment is far more profitable than a single-pill cure.
