    The left is all about control. They fear liberty because they think that if everyone isn't forced to row in the exact same direction, civilization will break down. It is why they embrace fascism they way they do. But this story here is one of MANY reasons why the government should never have control over any facet of your life. The UK government is standing in the way of medication that could cut breast cancer deaths by 10%.

    The UK government isn't standing in the way you dummy. The decision to fund the drug is made locally. That is going to change. When it does, then you can complain that the evil government is forcing everyone to row in the same direction. Per your desire.

    I'm sorry, stupid, are you under the impression that "locally" somehow means "NOT government"? :lmao:

    I'm not sure where that 10% number comes from, since everything I've read, including your link, seems to indicate a smaller decrease. Still, so far the sites I've gone to seem to agree that these bisphosphonates can help reduce cancer reoccurance in women post-menopause. I haven't yet read much about side effects, so I don't know if they present a significant enough risk to warrant not giving this treatment regularly. :dunno:

    Exactly. So what have we learned here? That government should stay the fuck out of it. That they have no authority to control people, business, costs, etc.

    I learned that the National government did stay out of it and as a result you are melting like a snowflake.
