So how many of you guys work in a hospital? How many work for pharma companies? How many work for insurance companies? The biggest financial burden of cancer, diabetes, etc. Its not the health care. The government pays for half of that if you dont have insurance. If you have insurance they pay the brunt of that cost. The real burden of being sick is not being able to work. You still get insurance but you cant go in and work so you lose your income.
Yeah i wish there was a cure for cancer. There are a ton of drugs that show it is beneficial in f!ghting cancer. Curing it is a whole other thing. Trust me when I say that doctors arent soulless as*holes who are getting rich off of not prescribing people the right medication. These people working for pfizer arent doing this on purpose. Sometimes drugs dont pass FDA guidelines because they have side effects that are worse than treating the disease.
Lets say this drug gets legalized and pushed into production. Side effects are the loss of your legs due to blockage in the capillaries. So 20 people who have now lost their legs are going to sue the company for millions upon millions of dollars.
i work in the health care profession and ive seen more people lose limbs and lives due to other illnesses, accidents, age, and perfectly legal things like smoking cigs and drinking booze. and i'll tell you something right now, if you think for one second that the FDA cant be purchased JUST like anything else you're mistaken.
and there's a lot of cancer docs out there that are compassionate and stick with their clients till the end, but there are just as many if not more that are nowhere to be found when chemo and radiation don't work. and listen to this, chemo makes you sicker, and radiation isnt selective so it k!lls other cells aside from malignant ones and everyone knows that. So the prescribed method of treatment for cancer as it stands in this world is already known to be harmful, so whats your point?
