hardinparamedic: awalkingecho: Medicine is not a science, it is a business. They do not create cures, they create customers. Healthy people are not profitable. The goal is to juggle the balance between keeping you just sick enough to need treatment without killing you for as long as possible to keep the coffers full.You're an idiot, and you should feel bad for posting such nonsense which demonstrates not only a fundamental misunderstanding and ignorance of how complex a biological system that is a human being is, but how complex and multifactoral diseases are.Antibiotics are a cure to a problem which was the number one killer of all ages prior to their widespread use. Many "blood" cancers, such as leukemia, are curable now to the 98th Perecentile - especially in pediatrics. We can "cure" strokes and we can "cure" heart attacks if they're treated early enough.There is no way to "cure" genetics. You cannot "cure" a cancer when someone waits until it has metastasized to their organs from the initial site. You cannot "cure" a traumatic injury that requires someone's leg to be amputated. You can't cure a spinal transection.The idea that "cures" aren't profitable is silly. Even if a cure is found for ALL cancers, there will be a need for multiple doses, in the same person more than likely. Everyone, if they live long enough, will get cancer. A cure for HIV would be worth trillions of dollars worldwide, and would give the inventor of it everlasting fame and fortune.

3rotor: has any one ever seen a high ranking member of any of the pharma's that produce these inoculations, people that actually know what's in those injections, being inoculated with their own stuff...I'm having an issue with that, and I don't exactly know why...
hardinparamedic: Go rail on about Lipitor, Psychiatric Drugs, and COX Inhibitors if you want to biatch about Pharma's profit schemes and bad behavior. It ain't in vaccination.
awalkingecho: I'm not an idiot. And I'm not saying that there are no valid things that have been produced that make our overall health and wellness better (i.e antibiotics, and vaccines that have eradicated or ameliorated many of the more dastardly diseases for human kind.)
awalkingecho: Ooooh millions of dollars worldwide! Or you could, you know, not patent it like the noble Salk in the interest of making no money so that people could afford it.
