questionaboutit, you conveyed my very thoughts to a tee. To think that EVERYthing and EVERYone along the chain is about money, or would surpress information leading to a cure for cancer, is rediculous.
There are thousands upon thousands of companies (and universities) - big and small - working on improving the human medical condition. None as big a challenge as is cancer.
Any one of them, 99% lets say, would give their left n** to find a cure for cancer. The Nobel Prizes, the financial rewards, the personal & corporate pride would be unequalled.
As if there wouldn't be ONE (more likely countless) doctors who would "blow the whistle".
Something tells me that little boys and girls dont grow up and spend 1/2 their lives in medical school, hundreds of thousands in debt, dealing with pain and sadness, because they wanted to help the drug companies make more moeny.
It's as silly as the world ending today.. imagine all the wasted nerve cells, all the worry about Gleason, staging, and the rest... if it ALL ended today anyway, regardless of cancer.
Live life today, that is what you have. Live now. That is all that ANY of us can count on. Cancer or not.
I have a saying that for some reason I've used for years, long before PCA.. "I plan on living my life while i'm alive".
