For real...they don't seem to care as much....they figure the elderly have had a chance to live, so not as important.

This reminds me of how I have been coming across threads dealing with the public disclosure of cancer treatment and the only reason it isn;t around is because of the people profiting from this..so sad

There is a cure for Cancer, the Canadian's found it and its a lot cheaper than 1500 dollars a day to stay alive.

That cure for cancer can also shut down your liver and/or cause cancer ... it's not quite proven to be the miracle treatment it's touted as being just yet... but time will tell ..

Apparently a lot of people have gotten ill by trying to self-treat using this method.

Yup, lets adopt "free" healthcare here. This kind of thing would never happen in America... [/SARCASM]

Why does it cost so much? Because Governments have granted these companies monopolies. The very idea of copyrights, patents and intellectual property is stifling to the advancement of society, add to that the absolute worthlessness of the fiat currencies and this is what you get.

And when it comes to medical care in general


In the mid-1800s, doctors learned their profession in medical schools, by apprenticing with another practitioner, and/or by developing their own therapies. (2) Many individuals limited their practice to specific areas, such as midwifery, preparation of herbal remedies for common ailments, or suture of superficial wounds. This diversity in the training and type of practice encouraged innovation and allowed individuals to patronize the health care provider who seemed best suited to both their needs and their pocketbooks. Good healers were recommended by their clients, while those unable to help their patients soon found themselves shunned. Physicians reaped as they sowed. The patients voted with their dollars, thereby regulating the quality of health care. The customer was king.


.....


By the early 1900s, every state had agreed to the aggression of physician licensing. To obtain a license, healers had to meet the requirements of the licensing board. Without permission to practice, they would be stopped- at gunpoint, if necessary- from treating patients who still wanted their services. If our neighbors didn't choose as the licensing board did, their choices would no longer be honored, even if the unlicensed healer could cure them! (3) The consumer was no longer king; the licensing boards were.

The licensing boards in each state soon began refusing licenses to health professionals who had not been trained at one of the "approved" medical schools. Only half of the existing medical schools were approved, so most of the others had to close their doors by 1920.4 By 1932, almost half the medical school applicants had to be turned away.5 Those who apprenticed, went to unapproved schools, or developed their own therapies were stopped- at gunpoint, if necessary- from healing.6 As a result, the number of medical doctors per 100,000 people dropped from 157 in 1900 to 125 by 1929. (7) Specialists, such as midwives, were usually forbidden to practice unless they had a full-fledged medical degree. (8)

Happens daily in countries of the African continent, how is this news?
Capitalism is not the way to go. You cannot have a small percent of the population with benefits while the rest is to die. You will eventually have a mass revolution movement on your door steps.

Well, if she took 2 to 3 weeks worth of that money and bought a pound of the plant that we can't talk about on ATS and use the Rick Simpsom method, she could get cured.

Instead of just staying alive.



To have the police rock up, find all that medicine, charge her with dealing (that amount it is a default charge), arrest her, put her in lockup, confiscate every possession she has including her house under the proceeds of crime act, drag her through the system, convict her of a criminal offense, send her to jail, and have the prison doctor cater to her illness until she dies.

The system is setup to make sure this happens should you dare choose your option, at least according to Australian law.

Potential cancer applications

Cancer cells generally use glycolysis rather than respiration (oxidative phosphorylation) for energy (the Warburg effect), as a result of hypoxia that exists in tumors and malfunctioning mitochondria.[13] Usually dangerously damaged cells kill themselves via apoptosis, a mechanism of self-destruction that involves mitochondria, but this mechanism fails in cancer cells.

A phase one study published in January 2007 by researchers at the University of Alberta, who had tested DCA on cancer cells grown in mice, found that DCA restored mitochondrial function, thus restoring apoptosis, allowing cancer cells to self-destruct and shrink the tumor.[14]

These results received extensive media attention, beginning with an article in New Scientist titled "Cheap, ‘safe’ drug kills most cancers".[15] Subsequently, the American Cancer Society and other medical organizations have received a large volume of public interest and questions regarding DCA.[16] Clinical trials in humans with cancer have not been conducted in the USA and are not yet final in Canada, emphasizing the need for caution in interpreting the preliminary results.[16][17]


Ok, that has my interest. Why is this not more widely known?

en.wikipedia.org...

I certainly have not heard of it, despite this "extensive media attention" ?

In the USA, I get whatever I drug or treatment I need since I PAY FOR IT.

If you become sick with cancer, your paycheck probably isn't too big (if you even have the ability to work and earn a paycheck). How are you going to pay for it then?

I totally agree that Big Pharma needs investigating, for the high priced "medicines" they proffer. Health care is overall too expensive. And finding a doctor you can work with in the US is a crapshoot at best, with most of them being so inefficient. I'd rather see a vet.
Example. It took me over 11 years from the first active symptoms to find out I had Colitis and Celiac disease, and only after nearly dying. My cat- one visit to the vet and I got his diagnosis. Sad....(My cat has Colitis also)
Another example. I got my shoulder fixed last year, at a total cost of nearly 20 thousand dollars (US). 7 months later, the upper arm bones are sticking out from my shoulder, probably necessitating ANOTHER surgery, of course at MY expense. We cant get insurance for less than 800$ US a month, with high deductibles. The surgery was only done after 2 ER visits (to different ER's) and 5 days waiting in sheer agony, with a class 5 shoulder seperation, with NO pain medicine.
Yeah, I do believe something has to give here, and soon!!!

Peace
SK

I too find this deplorable. Pharmaceutical companies monopolize the market and make sure that easily produced drugs, as well as those that they cannot patent, that can cure or treat any major income maker such as cancer, are not available to anyone...

Since suicide is illegal, how does that fit in to this situation. If she voluntarily stops taking her medicine, "to kill herself," wouldn't they be forced to save her life somehow? I do not understand the laws regarding this subject too well, but it seems to me that there may be something there, along these lines. Anyone know anything more?
