    Default Two Developements for Cancer Treatment

    The first is a story about a weight loss drug that had a side effect of killing tumors:

    The second one is a story about a designer virus based on the Herpes virus that attaches itself to damaged cells and kills them while leaving health cells alone:

    http://www.physorg.com/news103082669.html

    Both of these stories underline why it's smarter to spend money on generalized research than just funding specific diseases. All of the big-name drugs out there (Rogaine, Viagra etc.) all were designed to treat other health problems. None of the big Cancer or Heart medications came out of Cancer or Heart research, they were produced for other ailments and then one day some Doctor said "Hmmmmm" and the rest is history.

    Anyway, read the first story because it also shows how dang complicated the whole human body-thing is.

    Now ya got my goat here, I have a.. pardon the Ed pun.. beef with the big business in illness/disaster thing. I agree with ya that we need to get rid of specialized research and disaster relief... too much money and not enough results. My sister died from Luekemia in 91 and we got ZERO help from the cancer or luekemia society. My dad has had cancer twica and ZERO help from the national chapter,, now local chapters and local donations those are legit, but Red Cross, the Jerry Lewis shit, all the cancer societies and shit,, it takes big business money to keep those going. My mother in law just recently got her home flooded out here in kansas and the red cross is there ... oh yea and making them all sign papers that they'll have to pay the red cross back!!! I donate food and clothing to that place and now their charging people down on their luck that HAVE to take these things.

    I was told my a family member that is an environmental attorny and he told me that all the greenpeace stuff was cover for fronting big money, he was like think,, a patent on medication only lasts for a few years before a company is no longer making big bucks on it and it becomes over the counter... so how do they make money? They fabricate that we're becoming anti-biotic resistant so they get money to do research to find "better less resistant" drugs... the ole scare and tear tatic he called it.

    I don't understand this topic...

    Why do we need "treatments" when Eddie Van Halen found the cure for cancer?
    One noticeable difference between Judas Priest and Metallica...
    ...Judas Priest only has one gay guy in the band.

    They're using Herpes to cure cancer, I should have used that as the title.
