    Pharmaceutical companies make their money from people buying their medication and treatments. Since there are only temporary solutions for cancer, pharmaceutical companies continue to make money from each time a cancer patient goes through chemotherapy or radiation. Each time a person is diagnosed with cancer, Big Pharma Companies make roughly $300,000. With this big of an industry, why would the companies want to release a cure? Revealing a cure would cause their profits to drop substantially. Also, in the United States alone, over 500,000 people die from some form of cancer each year.

    Not at all true. Great strides are being made in biotech treatments. Either educate yourself or change your username.

    Three areas in which the principles of capitalism should have never been tolerated from the giddyup: defense, education, and medicine. What's happening in those fields in the United States today is not so much the fruition of some grand conspiracy as it is the expected outcome of allowing the wrong ideas to rule the roost for far too long.

    Cancer used to be a death sentence in almost all cases. If you were old enough to remember, you'd know that great strides have been made in curing most cancers. Yes Big Pharma makes money....but more people are alive now. In my grandparents and parents' generation, most I knew who had cancer were dead soon....most of my generation who had cancer are still alive and cancer-free. Thats a Win in my book.

    The conflict of interest alluded to in the OP goes well beyond cancer treatment. The FDA has a track record of approving drugs with known lethal side effects, as if to say, "Congratulations, Mr. Smith, your RA symptoms appear to be in remission! Sorry about the Lymphoma, though.". If you watch the commercials for some of the latest drugs, big pharma tends to make no bones about the deadly side effects these days. There's nary a prescription medication out there that doesn't pack the potential to fuck you up in 5 ways other than the symptoms or causes it was prescribed to treat! No rational person could conclude that absolutely none of that has been by design.

    Only someone with no understanding of biochemistry or an ability to grasp that even aspirin can be deadly to a small percentage of the population.

    Or someone who believes pharma companies deliberately want to kill their customers, which makes no sense.

    Is Aspirin causally linked to such things as an entire array of cancers, Diabetic Ketoacidosis, and congestive heart failure, to name but a few?

    What happened to "An Aspirin a day...? :dunno: ;)

    Well, luckily for the customers and the pharma companies, even the most serious side effects are usually treatable for some period of time before the customer in question finally kicks the bucket. Some of those treaments are ENORMOUSLY expensive too. ;)

    You're saying these diseases are caused by medications? :wtf:

    Can't wait to see what tinfoil hat website you found that "information" on.

    LOL. How does the FDA's own website tickle your nuts, A-rhod?

    Ketoacidosis has been linked to SGLT2 inhibitors such as Invokana and similar drugs.

    Hepatosplenic T-Cell Lymphoma (normally a very rare cancer) has been linked to the use of TNF blockers such as Humira and similar biologics.

    Of course, who could bitch about contracting such a rare disease by way of side effect when the makers told us up front that it could happen?!
