Default why there will never be a cure for cancer, ms

is because hospitals make money from it. why would they find a cure for something that makes doctors and hospitals money. I wouldnt doubt it if they already have found a cure for cancer, aids, multiple sclirosis and such. But they will never let it out, theyd lose money.

take magic johnson for example, he has had hiv for a while, and just recently i heard they found that there are no traces of it in his body any more.....rich bastage.

same concept for the oil industry and hydrogen cars.

it's really scary to think that there are cure-able diseases which may never be cured because "big medicine" has so much money and pull......

My dad said this exact same thing to me, back in 1990 when he was dying from Cancer. Interesting theory, but I think it's bunk. They'd make loads of money from administering the cure or prevention.

Something else would come along and be a killer disease. Millions used to die from diseases that are all preventable today via vaccine.

Pretty lousy conspiracy theory. Curing cancer would bring huge wealth to the company that developed the package.

I don't think there will be a cure, how can you really stop genetic mutation? If you figured out a way for the body to kill off cells that had a differing genetic code, what would happen if someone needed a blood transfusion?

There are a couple movies that have done the "Why cure it when you can make more money treating it", Johnny Menomic (spelling?) comes to mind.

but what about when its no longer an epidemic like it is now, if eventually its cured, it means eventually its no longer proffitable, when right now, and unforseen end to the disease, means an undepleatable cash cow. i think it would take litterally a world of change before somebody cures cancer and put an end to the financial benifit, which sadly seems to be the main focus.

it is a conspiracy theory, i dont ponder on it much, but i wouldnt be surprised if it turned out to be true.

If a cure for the uncureable was released it would make alot of money, and then when the disease is cured?? they dont go back to the hospital anymore....hospital just lost a lifetime customer.

edit****^^^beat me to it.

Is this a trick question? Doctors and hospitals aren't the ones who develop drugs and vaccines.

There are already cures for certain types of cancer with differing success rates. I think the most interesting one that I have read about is where they genetically alter anthrax to target just cancer cells and not destroy good cells. They have had a lot of success with it supposedly.

Are you serious?

This is tinfoil hat BS.

Big Medicine is trying desperately to cure cancer. The first one to come up with a cure for cancer makes a trillion dollars.

There are always a ton of things to treat. There's no cure for breaking a leg or getting shot or a host of diseases and infections... there's more than enough work for hospitals.

Not enough nursing teachers. UMASS Amherst had to reject 260 qualified applicants because there were not enough seats in their program. It's got to be like that everywhere.

The only way that cancer can be prevented would be via gene therapy. That's big money. If there was a miracle treatment, that would have to be administered in a hospital; that's also big money. Radiologists and chemo shops are the ones making the real money from cancer. Many cancer victims die at home, many times they don't even go to the hospital unless something fails and they need intensive care.

There's many causes for the current and future nursing shortage, both on the supply and the deman side:

Don't be a dumb****, the longer you live, the more money they can milk from you. The medical industry is very interested in keeping you alive as long as possible.

dicmo, i agree with you, but im solely thinking at the bottom line, the gain of continuing treatments over X number of years to X number of patients, outweights the gain of curing the disease.


**someone also mentioned and i do conceed, that i understand there are cures in place for some form of cancers.

Are you kidding???? There is no money in keeping a cure from the people, not to mention do you really think if "they" had it someone somewhere would not leak this info. Also if "they" do have it why does research money get spent on cures for cancer, and aids.

And hospitals, as well as the medical care system in general, are in the red across the country, clearly they are not making much money the way things are going now. Have you ever noticed that hospitals try to get patients out as soon as possible, that is becasue they lose money the longer they stay.

Not to piss anyone off but use your head once in a while...

I don't think there are any 100% cureable cancer types yet. I wouldn't consider anything a cure unless it works everytime, not something that has a chance to work.
