Im not sure if this has been said because I dont have the patience to read every post. But I personally believe that every disease has a cure, however they are hidden and not used. Why? Because the drug companys would lose so much money, why would they sell the cure? They make tons of money selling us drugs, and even more so with the drugs that cause other problems then the original. I honestly dont believe that all of these drug companies and doctors have our best intrest in mind, its all about the money. There was a story about a chinese doctor who had found the cure for cancer, he went to many companys trying to show them his idea and he was laughed at and showed the door, he was even told that no drug company would buy his product because they make so much money with radation and chemo that by curing cancer would take them broke. He was offered 50 million dollars to shut his mouth, and he declined it. Yeah, some of these medicines will add 10 maybe 20 years to our life, but at what cost? I do agree with one of the other posters, that there are SOME chemists and doctors that truly and honestly want to find a cure for whatever disease hits home for them. I find it very odd that Ive seen comericals advertised for Humira and RA, and sorisis (sp) but Ive never once seen it advertised for Crohns, maybe I just missed it. But Im personally sick of having drugs made for other disease pawned off to me. I do NOT have cancer, I do NOT have RA....I have CROHNS DISEASE, and i want one specific drug made to treat it, and only it. Why is it that a drug that is supposed to help us makes us lose our hair, or get unbarable joint pains, fatigue, horrible skin, cancer, TB...the list goes on and on.....Id rather just live with the freakin crohns then deal with all of the side effects.
