This absolutely BLOWS MY MIND! CTV News did a report on a cancer drug DCA, that could very possibly cure cancers such as brain, breast and lung cancer. Because the drug has no patent and any drug company can produce it, no pharmaceutical company wants to touch it because it will not make them money.
An estimated 186 400 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in Canada in 2012, with an estimated 75 700 deaths caused by the disease. And, because there is little money to be made in this possible cure, a drug that can be bought in bulk by universities, pharmaceutical companies do not want to produce it.
CTV News report on DCA
I did not believe that in this progressively thinking and health conscious era a price could actually be put on a person's life. Apparently I am wrong. Because there is not a buck to be made in saving the lives of millions, millions will suffer. How sad!
