I like how people are so willing to believe the media's claims about science and scientific discoveries (which are really quite often misleading). Rather than do research to dig up real scientific evidence for themselves, they put their trust in questionable sources out of intellectual laziness or because it reinforces their preconceived notions about how the world works.

People with cancer sometimes have nothing to lose. When a couple of these CEO's wind-up with a bullet in their heads, then it well be a great day.

When the time comes and it looks bleak for me.. im just gonna pick up a hand gun..slowly and spiritually walk into my back yard, or a wooded area and blow my head off.. id rather just...end it quickly then to have to fight and fight and fight anymore... its BEYOND drating apparent that these corporations are in charge, and care nothing at all for their fellow man.. here they are supposed to be saving us. coming up with new meds to keep us alive.. and instead they drop something cause (they cant make enough money off it) i hope if their IS a hell they burn in it forever and ever.

Also, how can something ever be not profitable for a drug company. If something cures a cancer then they would charge out the nose for it, regardless of what it costs to make.


They can't charge what they want because it`s not patentable - everybody can make it and the competition will find a prize that is reasonable.

The cost on the other hand lies not in the manufacturing but in the studies. Whoever will fund the studies wouldn`t get that money back.
