Magician Criss Angel demonstrates psychic surgery

Some things to consider about psychic surgery:

If there could be a painless, non-invasive and very inexpensive cure for cancer that took only minutes to perform, why has there been so little notice of it in the world outside rural Phillipines and parts of South America? Why isn't it heralded as the discovery of the ages?

Why haven't the American Medical Association, the American Cancer Society, the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, the Lance Armstrong Foundation and the millions of people working towards a cure for cancer endorsed it?

Psychic surgery has existed for at least the past one hundred years and, most likely, much longer than that. With hundreds of practitioners in the world, why would anyone ever have died of cancer in the past a hundred years? Wouldn't a cure such as this have made the entire field of oncology obsolete?

Finally, what does it tell you if a stage magician admittedly performing a magic trick can replicate psychic surgery? Can you even tell the difference between the magician and the psychic surgeon?
