  • I would believe it.

    With everything that we DO know about, I'm sure there have been some amazing developments that we don't know about. Look how far we've come with technology. I don't think it's outlandish to think that we've come just as far medically. I bet cures and/or better treatments have been discovered for a lot of things, but there is money to be made by TREATING instead of CURING.

  • I don't know about the governmant, but the medical community...MAYBE! Could be BOTH!!

    Chris Rock does a great rountine about this about the doctors don't want to cure because they GET YOU ON THE COMEBACK! It's all about TREATMENT now...Less cure, more continued treatments. More $$$$. More specialized care, more $$$, More research grants , more $$$

  • I think the drug companies and the Government are in cahoots and are keeping cures from us in order to make money of innocent, unsuspecting, ill citizens.

  • Not likely.

  • Carpy, what makes you think the government is so innocent and wouldn't do something like this? What makes you trust them enough to say that it's not likely?

  • Because OUR gov is not the only one that would have access to cures. If other countries have them then it would be known. It's just a simple fact that not everything is curable.

  • We as citizens have no idea how many times we have been used as human guinea pigs without our knowledge. Sometimes I ponder if we are too trusting in thinking our Government has our best interest at heart when in reality, they are greedy and self-serving- totally lacking in respect for our wishes, health and privacy.

  • Do you think a conspiracy involving more than three people can be maintained for any length of time? It's hard enough to plan a surprise party!
