Is someone a bit short on funding? how the heck could they know this:

Despite the severity of its wounds however the dinosaur seemed to have survived for several months and each of the breaks showed clear signs of healing.

Surviving several  months for a beast that size, maybe it could of had another several years if it had not been injured. I think there is an awful lot of speculation here.

As for a cure for cancer,  what has dinosaur DNA got to do with the toxins humans have been pumped with over the years?
Maybe the dinosaur DNA will be able to clear the oceans of the radiation and oils and other toxins  the humans have "accidentally" spilt it in!
Maybe the dinosaur DNA will clear the air of pollutants the humans have created?

So much speculation it was hard to even read.

Side note; Jurassic World should be an entertaining movie.

1st cynical response, oh goody something that will help more humans live longer lives diminishing resources further among us, all of us, all several billion of us......

But realistically it would be nice to diminish the suffering that cancer and other hellish diseases cause.

I am skeptical that everything is seen as a miracle source of possible new cures.....hippopotamus, alligator, horseshoe crab blood have all been hailed as possible saviors due to the fact that said blood seems very helpful in keeping its respective owners alive in spite of horrible injuries or flaming infections.

This is just a wait and see theory I suppose.

Oh, yeah. This Dinosaur DNA can help us cure faster, that's how it always starts. Then later there's running and screaming.

C'mon guys! Where's your imagination?  It was aliens who helped the creatures.  Wonders what a cast can do for a broken leg!
