no surprise

This shouldn't surprise anyone, but before yesterday I could only name 1 Whitney Houston song. I knew the one from the Bodyguard. Cmtem said that she also sang I want to Dance with somebody then she was out. So, for me I know Whitney as a singer of 1 song from a movie I never saw. And that song was a remake. I also knew she got beat up by bobby brown. Anyway, feel free to tell me more Whitney songs because I am not going to look them up and I figure you all can't sit there and let me only know two songs.

So I got into a debate with Cmtem. I told her that the medical industry could easily find a vaccination for lots of diseases but they don't because there is no money in vaccinations. The big bucks are in treatment. So even if they found a vaccination for cancer they wouldn't sell it because they couldn't make enough money. I mean each person that gets cancer probably rings up at least 500K in medical bills. If you had a vaccine and tried to charge that much for it you'd be run out of the country. In any case Cmtem said my argument was dumb.

I don't know if any of you read the mark titus power rankings on Garland, but I do. He isn't too bad. I might even go as far to say that he is entertaining. He is a complete tOSU homer, so he basically reminds me of a young Simmons from Ohio. Apparently he lives in Cubs. I might have to stalk him. Just kidding, I'm way too lazy to do that.

Oh, I wrote this on my phone, so autocorrect probably fucked something up.

Ok, well I should go to work and do work things.

i just can't name one.

i am sure i have heard them before, i just can't name them.

tem said...

"Good to see the honeymoon is over."

negative. not over.

tem said...

"so tem is a conspiracy guy"

not really.

i just think the world revolves around money and if there isn't money in it then nobody will try it.

there is money in treatments and cures, so people research that.

you never see the "Race for the Vaccine"

but you see the "Race for the Cure" all the time.

tem said...

there are probably 100 times more fundraisers for breast cancer than for homeless people.

because people/companies can make money off of curing breast cancer. nobody makes money off of feeding homeless people or giving them houses.

for every habitat for humanity there are 100 Run for the Tittays.

El Padrino said...

there will never be cancer vaccine because it's impossible to create one

El Padrino said...

aids vaccine is somewhat likely

"there will never be cancer vaccine because it's impossible to create one"

i'm glad the top New Jersey scientist decided this.

i am sure you probably spent a whole semester on vaccines. your associates degree probably came with a minor in medicine.

tem said...

"there will never be cancer vaccine because it's impossible to create one"


also.

H said it best....

El Padrino said...

if they havent created one by now, despite what conspiracy you believe, they will never create one

and i have to take an educated guess that the reason is it's impossible

billions have been poured into research

"-The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved two types of vaccines to prevent cancer: vaccines against the hepatitis B virus, which can cause liver cancer, and vaccines against human papillomavirus types 16 and 18, which are responsible for about 70 percent of cervical cancer cases.
-The FDA has approved one cancer treatment vaccine for certain men with metastatic prostate cancer.
-Researchers are developing treatment vaccines against many types of cancer and testing them in clinical trials."

Tem's argument was the subject of a Chris rock joke.

There's no money in a cure, is the guy who invented the polio vaccine rich?

El Padrino said...

not cancer vaccines

just vaccines that lower risk to cancer

tem said...

The five largest visible minority groups in Toronto are South Asian (12.0%), Chinese (11.4%), Black (8.4%), Filipino (4.1%) and Latin American (2.6%).

So cancer vaccines. Got it.

Flu shot vaccine doesn't prevent you from getting the flu. It just lowers the risk of getting it

seriously, you should stop it. you have no fucking clue what is scientifically possible when it comes to a vaccine for cancer.

you sound amazingly stupid when you put a blanket statement out there like that. just really amazingly stupid. i am sure the world of medicine is taking note of the guy from Jersey saying it is impossible.

"seriously, you should stop it. you have no fucking clue what is scientifically possible when it comes to a vaccine for cancer. "

in my opinion, just like your stupid opinion that there is a vaccine but since no one can make money off it no one will produce it, i think it's impossible

i can only read facts and come to a guess

the facts are billions have been spent researching and no vaccine
(now if you want to argue the money didnt go into research fair point different discussion)

you dont even have facts supporting your opnion it's purely speculative

I think that's exactly what he said. If there is a vaccine made, they won't make the billions of dollars. Ergo ipso facto, there aren't interested in finding a vaccine

?
no comprende this statement

im saying they have been working on a vaccine, working on a cure, to my knowledge for hundreds of years and nothing yet

so i have to believe it's impossible unless science advances

in my lifetime it's looking not good

Keef said...

I agree that not everyone is driven by money. But I would say that most people are. And big companies most definitely are. And in this case, it's more about the big companies than the individual.

to me this sounds like if someone found a cure, or was close on the cure they would delay it just to make more money. I have a hard time believing that.

El Padrino said...

"LP

Keef said...

to me this sounds like if someone found a cure, or was close on the cure they would delay it just to make more money. I have a hard time believing that.


I think it's not too far fetched to think that the big corps wouldn't let it get that close.

Keef said...

I don't think Joe Scientist is just sitting at home trying to work on a cure. The people that are working on this are employed by companies whose best interest, financially, is to not have a cure

Jugdish said...

I think it's not too far fetched to think that the big corps wouldn't let it get that close.



so would they have some doc on the inside changing test results, or just refuse to release results so no one would know they are close to finding a cure or vaccination? I think that is a little far fetched

Jugdish said...

I don't think Joe Scientist is just sitting at home trying to work on a cure. The people that are working on this are employed by companies whose best interest, financially, is to not have a cure

Fair enough. We're not going to have the same opinion. But where are the billions, heck maybe even trillions, of dollars that are being raised going to?

Jugdish said...

true that. Aren't the financial records public?

Its not as easy as spending said amount of money should yield a certain result when it comes to medicine. Now i know there is a motivation with making money when it comes to every field, so I'm not blind to that. However when it comes to major illness like that I think most of those people would receive more money than they know what to do with and coupled that with the noteriety they would receive...that would be enough incentive

Jugdish said...

But that doesn't make it not true, necessarily

I know progress has been made. How much, I dunno. Like I said, i'm probably being a little too naive about it.

not true. tem was getting too close to finding the cure, so tem's boss put him on another project. can't have the cure getting out and lose this funding.

/keef

Blue said...

getting back to all of that.

I believe that drug companies are more interested in treating the condition than curing the condition.

Since most of the best scientist types work for drug companies (because they pay the best), they are influenced as to what they work on. I'm not saying they throw away information or hide anything, but they encourage the Jonas Salk's of the world to concentrate on treatment plans as opposed to cures.

Blue said...

the wrinkle in that is universities or independent doctors.

they don't get any benefit by not finding a cure. Those are the people who are more driven by the fame and notoriety than the money.

Blue said...

i'd love to believe that the drug companies like Pfizer and Merck aren't evil

but I think they are pure evil.

Jugdish said...

Since most of the best scientist types work for drug companies (because they pay the best)


how do you know they have all the best? I guess I'm thinking when you go into those kinds of fields with those kind of degrees then you're chasing more than money...and regardless of your position you're getting paid well.
