You really think science cares about finding cures? The more sicknesses there are, the more doctors get paid.
Skeptic, I find the above statement to be extremely offensive, and libellous as well.
Both My brother and I work in medicine. He's a geneticist, microbiologist and immunologist working in cancer research, and his team is trying to crack the genetic codes that enable the body to recognize and destroy cancer cells.
I am a medical transcriptionist. Over the past seven years I've prepared something in the order of 50,000 reports
and have a "smarter than your average bear" lay understanding of radiology, physical medicine, hypertension control, respirology, cardiology, gastroenterology, endocrinology, otolaryngology, infectious disease control, allergy and immunology, nephrology, and My personal favourite, neurology. I assure you that the people attending the hospitals of this particular city do tend to get better rather than worse.
And researchers from My home province have come up with amazing things: A vaccine for Rh-negative women carrying an Rh-positive baby; a possible cure for the Ebola virus; and, very recently, the discovery of the cause of ALS, which may someday lead to a cure. (And that's just three examples among many. The lab working on Ebola, for instance, played a key role in identifying the H1N1 virus back in 2009, and creating diagnostic tests for it.)
You should be deeply ashamed of yourself for telling such atrocious lies about medical science.
