Holy hellfire thats a freaky concept. (cue the X-files music)
Imagine that…but come to think of it…medical science has brought about treatment after treatment for various diseases…everything from herpes to erectile disfunction to, of course, diabetes. Naturally, these treatments bring in so much moolah every year…the doctors, the pharm companies, research and development…the list is endless.
But for us…the chronic dependents…what about us? We are left with no choice but to shell over the cash so that we can keep on living and…guess what…shell out more cash. Diabetics alone help keep physicians, endocrinologists, dietitians, ophthalmologists, podiatrists, nephrologists, cardiologists, neurologists, surgeons and pharmacists in business.
Thats a lot of co-pays people.
Now lets see…an end all be all cure to diabetes would mean a ton of lost revenue. Billions spent on research and development down the tubes. Massive layoffs would ensue. Companies that we have come to depend on over the years would suddenly become irrelevant to us.
I really don’t know if we’re at the mercy of a conspiracy. All I know is that after buying test strips and gasoline, there ain’t much going into my mutual fund
If there is a cure and we aren’t getting it simply because diabetes is profitable, then all I can do is smile, take my shot, and let karma take it’s course.
