and it really boils down to the basic fact-
The money to be made from natural products, remedies, and treatments- is little to none in comparison to what the existing pharmaceutical and medical
industries bring in.
So while there currently is probably a natural cure for almost any ailment, the average human will be lucky to learn they exist in their lifetime.
I mean, HIV/AIDS has been around for what, over 40 years now? In 1991 Magic Johnson announced he had the disease and not too many years later it was
rumored that he was cured. While the public never was told this directly
Michael himself stated
the HIV virus in my blood system and in my body have laid dead in a sense
PBS interview with Michael Johnson 2011
So the people with the money seem to have access to some form of treatment that millions of others DONT.
How can we continue to ignore this problem any longer than we already have?!
You don't appear to understand the subject. This is no hidden cure; Magic Johnson is not some miracle; and this new discovery is NOT some 'new
miracle' but just another topical gel possibility. Let me clarify a few things:
1) Magic Johnson does not have some miracle cure. He takes the same triple-combination drug cocktail as millions do, and that cocktail drops the
presence of virus in the blood to undetectable levels. No magic here, no cure, he is average for those taking the drugs, not some miracle denied
others (unless you don't have insurance and $1800.00 / month to buy the drugs).
2) This new compound is not the magic cure either. Finding a compound that kills HIV in-vitro (in a test tube) is a whole different problem than
getting this compound to the infected cells hidden in the tissues of the body without toxic side effects or collateral damage - another (so far
untested with this compound) scenario entirely. For a bit of understanding...did you know saliva kills HIV? Sweat kills HIV? Hell, exposure to oxygen
kills HIV....Why are these not cures??? Finding something that kills HIV is NO biggie. Getting it to the cell is the problem.
3) So the only application for this 'new' compound - without further study and proff-of-concept- is a topical gel preventative, NOT a cure.
Nice news, but no earth-shaking event. IF you are looking for the cure, keep on looking.
