Not exactly true
- To say that people are angry over a lack of cures for many diseases out to realize scientist have been working for 50 years is specious to me. To me a year 50 years ago would be far less productive than a year today. In today's modern world there are computers, super microscopes, instantaneous internet communication and on and on. To me there is a strong political current flowing through the research on many diseases just as there was in the approval of vioxx and other dangerous medication. I think a lot more could be done than is being done. I think a lot of medicine is fraudulent. That doctors prescribe medicines for favors. Much of what I said is factual and well know. I think you, researchers, and doctors are mostly failures who go through motions without much creativity or feeling.....just chasing the money as usual. ***From Your Guide: While there are certainly a lot of problems with the medical research system, people really are trying very hard to come up with a cure for herpes. Furthermore, as a person who succeeded in doing so would likely end up both famous and rich. I don't think your "chasing money" argument holds much water. Finding a cure for a disease is not simply a matter of throwing time, money, and technology at a problem. It also requires insight, luck, and the potential for a cure to exist.***
