Do you guys think there are cures for most diseases but the governments wont give us them b/c its a way to keep the population down?

The reason I am asking this is b/c my teacher recently told me a story how her father got some disease I am sorry I don't remember which one and the president at the time I think it was Nixon got the same disease but he lived. But a week later her aunt got the same disease and she also passed away.

I think if there's a way to make money off a cure, someone's going to be looking for that cure. There's very little the government can do to keep something like that a secret.

No. Now, the FDA approval process takes ages. I seriously doubt the government would keep vaccines away from the general population as a way of genocide.

I have a close friend who caters to Looney – some would say delusional conspiracy theories. She swears our government actively commits cleansing by way of unethical biological warfare - including medical testing in prison populations. But she’s not a schoolteacher in New Jersey.

There is NO PROFIT in the cure, only the treatment.

Keep someone on meds for eternity and you'll make a healthy chunk of change. Cure them and your source of income is gone.

The Industrial/Republican agenda.

I would not say that. A lot of serious disease see some people die, and other people live.

Three years ago, my nephew (then only 2 year old) was diagnosed with Cancer. He spent the best time of his third year in a hospital, getting chemiotheraped, irradiated, the whole nine yards. After one year of struggling, he eventually survived, but most of the kids with the same disease my sister saw in the hospital yard did not. They had the same cancer, the same age, yet, they died while my nephew did not.

I can assure you there was no hidden medication for him.

Cheers,

My gf controls the finances for a global pharmaceutical company and tells me the bulk of their profits come from developing new treatments. The focus is on managing various illnesses and prolonging life; a cure would see a dent in their profits (seriously).

And many cancers are curable - the problem stems from our ignorance; if you catch a disease in its early stages, then chances are, you will be fine. My step-mother and grandmother died from cancer, but by the time of detection, it had spread to several places. Before this, both were in pain for months and dismissed by their doctors.

In my opinion, testing for serious illnesses should be one of the first things that is done - it may be unlikely, but better to eliminate it than risk lives.

I also recall reading about a drug recently, that if given within a few weeks after suspected exposure to HIV, will all being well, mean you are very, very unlikely to test positive at a later date.

I believe there are more cures anyway than we know of. Whether or not they are used to keep population down, I have no idea. One example is Magic Johnson. He was diagnosed with HIV over 14 years ago and right now he is healthy, muscular (for his age) and has shown no signs of any problems. Maybe his money got him something the rest of us wouldn't have a chance at.

There is not a statement more accurate than this one. I say this all the time. In the treatment of HIV and AIDS there are billions spent on drugs. As the person who has to pump 45 pills a day to keep going. Those pills are not cheap nor are they free. If there was a cure for AIDS, then after that one time cost for the cure...no more money for the drug companies.

I wouldn't put it past the government...no matter who is in charge.

It's true. That's why many people in the developed world are dying of smallpox, rubella, polio, scarlet fever, tuberculosis, bubonic plague, leprosy, etc.
