a: cancer ~
b: war


The link is a class that discusses the whole idea of associating cancer and war. It's quite lengthy. If you like this kinda stuff, take a look.

From the discussion:

"In our culture, the military metaphor has dominated the way in which we think, and talk, about cancer. This paper discusses the use of metaphor, particularly the influence that the military metaphor has had on cancer medicine."
