I keep reading that medicine is looking for a cure for this condition and that it is always just over the horizon and then got to thinking. What do they have cures for? Not arthritis,not diabetes,not cancer,ms, chrons, migraines,osteoporisis, ibs,heart disease,parkinsons,ms,etc,nothing I can think of. Not one disease does modern medicine have a cure for, not one with the exception of anything that responds to antibiotics. Can anyone think of one disease that medicine can cure, not treat but cure.If so I would like to know what it is, because I can think of nothing. So anyone that thinks there will one day be a miracle cure of this monster from medicine is sadly mistaken. Are we being taken for a ride?
