Certainly I am aware of the theories surrounding the origin of AIDS. I am more than a little familiar with them. I've read most of Gallo's old grant
applications and several books that suggest this. That it's "commonly known today that AIDS was a manufactured disease" is a overstatement at the
very least. Certainly some agree with that, and admittedly, there exists some evidence in support of this hypothesis. This doesn't make it so though.
Furthermore, this post wasn't even about AIDS, it was about cancer, with a secondary mention of diabetes.
so why should anyone trust the drug industry, medical industry or the large corporations that control them?
Why should anyone trust ANY large corporation then? Ultimately they are all about making profits. Which corporations and industries should I trust? If
I don't look to the drug companies and medial industries to cure cancer, who should I look to? Certainly there exist alternative therapies, but are
these people not in it to make a living also? At which profit margins is a company deemed worthy of acceptance.
I believe there are hard working researchers out there truly looking for cures for many things, but I also believe that there are groups
working very hard to suppress some reasearch, keeping cures from coming as quickly as they could.
Which groups? What research are they trying to supress? Where is your evidence of such suppression. It'd be nice if we could keep the topic to
suppressed MEDICAL research, since that seems to be the diretion of the thread.
Where's the cure for AIDS? If we made it, we should also have a cure.
Why? Even if we did make it, that doesn't mean we have a cure. Since your so well versed in the manmade nature of HIV, you must be aware of the
hypothesis that Gallo developed the virus, and via a contaminated culture infected a hepatitis vaccine with HIV. Even if HIV is man-made, it doesn't
make the release intentional.
Or has it mutated causing a new cure to need to be developed....is anyone working on that?
Well, rapid mutation is the nature of retroviruses. Why is this so far fetched? People are working on AIDS cures and anti-virals all the time, right
now as we speak.
Are there groups that don't want a cure found?
According to you.
Why would they create a disease and then turn around and want it cured?
Hmmmm.... maybe a silly notion like self-preservation. Even if they keep the cure for themselves, you think no other researchers would eventually come
up with the cure? We've all got access to the same literature, and same molecular techniques.
Who owns hospitals?
Depends on the hospital
Large corporations...who trusts them?
Large corporations own some, or even most hospitals. Who trusts large corporations? Most of us... do you happen to drive a car, wear manufactured
clothing, shop at Wal-Mart or Target, buy processed food?
Some doctors hand out prescription meds like it's candy...why? MONEY FOR THE DRUG COMPANIES!!
Some doctors do in fact do this. However, I seriously doubt it's so they can generate money for the drug companies as much as it is they wish to keep
their clients happy. I don't know what country you live in, but in the US, people want the doctor to give them a pill. God forbid you have to change
your behavior and do something healthy. Furthermore, this is what western Dr.s are trained to do. They treat symptoms for the most part. What more
would you expect of them. All of this is peripheral to the thread anyway. The point was why is there no cure for cancer. I answered your question.
Allow me to ask you a question: You really believe that if some major drug company actually had a cash-cow magic bullet drug that cured cancer they
would keep it suppressed? A drug like that has all of the market it would ever need.
And then of course there's the kick backs that no one ever talks about.
Making unsupportable vague inferences to cryptic shady dealings that may or may not have occured does nothing to support your case.
Please....I respect researchers......but they and you need to wake up to some serious reality about what's really going on on this planet.
You need to read up on diseases before you go flippantly shouting 'Conspiracy.' If you're really interested in why there is no cure for cancer,
perhaps you should actually read up on the molecular genetics and etiology of cancers. If you had a clearer understanding of the disease process you
might not feel the need to accuse medical science of being heartless, money-grubbing bastards, which certainly do exist in the medical community, just
as they do in all communities. But the point is this: if you actually understood what was going on in cancer, you'd have a clearer understanding of
the difficulties in developing a cure. Cancer is not a disease like the flu. Cancer is a genetic disease, and an extremely varied and diverse genetic
disease at that. This is the reason there is no cure for cancer currently, and a reason that there may never be one single cure for cancer.
