    Last month, a local doctor grew a culture and confirmed a cure that Big Labs have been working on (still are) for 6 years. Big Lab still has some budget left, so it may be awhile before they “find” this cure.

    It might be funnier if it was not so true. Comics and comedians have always told more truth than any politician dare.

    That’s why you will never see a cure for anything . There is no money in cures, just ” research”.

    one of the worst chewings I ever got was for finishing two jobs on time and under-budget when I was working for the state…they said I cost them for the next year’s budget…go figure!!

    I agree that the culture in many companies is to spend the budget so you don’t lose it. However, there have been hundreds (if not thousands) of discoveries in medicine in the last decade. Cancer cure rates are going up. Cancer deaths are going down. My son was in treatment for cancer recently and was given dozens of experimental drugs to find the magic bullet. None of it worked on him, but it did on others. The FDA is slow to approve new drugs, but they will allow dying patients to have drugs that are not approved. It is called “compassionate approval”. Don’t ever sell our medical researchers short.

    I’ve donated to many, many “worthwhile” medical research programs, yet I’m still losing friends, family members and acquaintances to diseases like breast cancer, multiple sclerosis and ALS. Why don’t the researchers give us just one “little” cure!

    I’m going to play devil’s advocate for a sec here… Let’s say the researchers and big pharma have found cures, etc… but problems arise when the diseases mutate, which requires more research to find another cure for that mutation, and so on and so forth. I’m not saying that I’m right or wrong, just putting another thought out there…

    The March of Dimes fought polio’

    Salk developed a vaccine with out their help

    Hundreds of fundraising jobs threatened.

    March of Dimes switched to birth defects

    Job security.

    @Lewreader– that’s not a bad thing. Having conquered polio, they picked another target and moved on. Whether they directly contributed to Salk, they had some effect.

    That said, it would be nice to have more cures: I lost both my parents, and my wife’s folks aren’t looking too good, despite being only 80.
