Cure for Cancer? Don't Hold Your Breath...
On a good day I can handle the election on social media. I can handle the God-squadders, the waving-the-flag-makes-me-a-patriot people and even the graphic photos of abused women/children (Like and share if you think these animals need to be drawn and quartered in a public venue, preferably Times Square).
What frustrates me most is that many people do not seem able to grasp the fundamental principle that finding a cure for cancer is not what pharmaceutical companies are interested in doing. What a preposterous notion!
Kill the goose [geese?] that lays the golden eggs? How much sense does that make?
Patently, cancer is good for business, and the more people prattle on about finding a “cure” for cancer, the more I bristle. What Big Pharma does not want you to know is that the cure is in what you put into your body in the first place.
If you shop for all that packaged poison available on the shelves of Walmart, and then microwave it for a quick and easy meal, and you do it often enough, you may as well just resign yourself for the inevitable results.
It’s recognizing that by microwaving your "food," you are transforming it from potentially nutritious goodness, into simply matter. Waste matter, if you prefer. Substances like ramen enter your body, hang out for a while, and then exit, leaving you no better for the exchange, except for a temporary respite in your stomach.
To live with an awareness of this concept, that what you ingest and come into contact with, is going to have far more to do with limiting your chances of getting cancer, than getting rid of it once you are in the grip, is to be able to do something about it.
Eat fresh fruit and vegetables, avoid processed meat, drink water in lieu of sweetened beverages, walk for exercise if your lifestyle is sedentary, limit your intake of red meat, use sugar in moderation and avoid second-hand smoke. Any and all of these strategies will help.
Folks who do not follow a healthy eating regimen, and who do not exercise regularly, tend have more health issues than those who follow some sort of guidelines. This is one of those “duh” statements, but needs to be included because these folks are soon going to be lining up for cancer treatments.
The longer the line, the more expensive Big Pharma makes the medicine. Why not? When folks are over a barrel, they will pay up the nose. I mean, it’s simply bad form to allow your loved one to die, because you cannot afford the medication.
So you hock the house to be able to do so. You are just the kind of customer that Big Pharma is looking for.
Pharmaceutical executives who jack up the price of their products exponentially, and then get exposed for their callousness, argue that they have every right to do so, because they need to continue researching for-you guessed it-the cure for cancer.
It infuriates me and many others, that the Food and Drug Administration refuses to acknowledge that cannabis has been proven effective in treating more than 700 forms of cancer. There is an industry-wide conspiracy to adhere to policy established back in the thirties, policy which vilified hemp to make way for the more expensive synthetics, being introduced by big business.
Unfortunately, here in the land of the free, it isn’t what cures cancer that matters, it’s what gives job security to Big Business, and that is money. Plain and simply, medicine costs money; creating a cure diminishes the ability to make money; ergo, focus on medicine and forget the cure.
Mama didn’t raise no fools-just a bunch of greedy, self-serving jerks, who don’t mind living high on the hog, at the expense of millions of ill people, most of them kids and the elderly.
Their money is as good as any, as long as it doesn’t run out.
