|just for fun, why don't you name me a disease that's been cured in the last 30 years with medicine. Please keep in mind the trillions of dollars going into the pockets of Big Medicine.....|
Wait, you mean like smallpox?
Is this supposed to be a trick question.
[Smallpox was wiped out in 1977 incidentally]
I think that "thirty years" is in there specifically to exclude smallpox and polio.
Well actually, the past 30 years have seen the biggest rise in degnerative diseases -- heart disease, cancer, MS, diabetes, alzheimer's, etc etc......none of which have cures and all of which are killing more and more and more people despite the trillions of dollars being pumped towards Big Medicine.
I acknowledge that some diseases have been controlled or even cured, but nothing new lately...at least nothing that's doing all the killing.
