The pharmaceutical industry does not want to cure ANYTHING. They want everything, from toenail fungus to indigestion to the common cold to cancer, to be chronic. No cure, evah. And this applies to OTC, as well as Rx drugs. Take a stroll down any 'drug' aisle in the grocery store. There's more and more and more stuff all the time. This is why I've stopped charitable contributions to any 'search for the cure' organizations. That goes from Komen to AHA and ADA. If I can, I'll contribute to health organizations who help folks get to their doctor's appointment or to buy a wig or prosthesis, but cure? Nope.
