Prostate cancer has had its pill (click to see), now the FDA approves new late- stage breast cancer drug.
While Wolf Blitzer of CNN was blitzing in the “Situation Room” news items were running below him like hot lava from a volcano’s mouth.
That is how I came to know about this late drug for breast cancer. This should or might provide some hope for the suffering hapless ones whose foot has been caught in in the traps of cancer.
We have to be hopeful for things like these. Hopeful, that those hapless with foot in cancer traps like prostate and breast cancers, and who have been kicked out of their mother’s nest with the diagnosis news form the doctor, will not have to die suddenly or immediately thereafter, or suffer unduly. So three cheers for to the FDA! But will I sing their praises? Hardly and unlikely.
The prostate cancer pill which took probably and likely millions of dollars to get to this point, is useless in my opinion. In my opinion the breast cancer pill will be useless too but albeit millions have been spent to get to this stage too.
I continue to be a firm belief in prevention, you see. To come up with pills at this stage of the disease is nothing but giving an old man or woman, a stick to see if they make it over the hill.
Include the cost of growing and producing the tree for the stick, yes that special tree. Charge them for carving it into a stick, for painting it, for packaging it and for delivering it. The irony of it, the greatest irony, is that half way up the hill he drops dead. Unfortunately his relatives won’t be laughing all the way to the bank, due to inadequate life insurance or the inability to obtain such. No!No!No! They won’t be laughing, but others will.
I kept saying how health care systems seems to have this business of peoples' health all rapped up in the money making facets of the business, and that no body wants to really cure diseases. From the mouth of the “blitz man” and enunciated from the Situation Room of CNN, it was told how hospitals as non-profit organizations, were raking in billions of dollars per year, and how the C.E.Os were being made out of money like the guy in the GEICO commercial. Dean Harrison one of such C.E.Os had a salary of 9.7 million, according to that news item. Wolf Blitzer went on to show by interviews that if a hotel were to bill you like the hospitals then you would have to pay for the bed you sleep on separately.
An expert in hospital bills, on that news item, showed that the general public or patient cannot understand these bills. A top hospital administrator confirmed that you pay for the a drop of blood, the technician who draws the blood, the analysis of the blood, the vial to hold the blood. There are even costs for the cup to hold a pill, and a heated towel can be as much as $200.00, and the list goes on.
When this tallied up C.E.Os. laughed all the way to the bank. I could imagine that if they got together they all could be saying Money!Money!Money! while throwing up the greenbacks in the air, and wallowing in it just like happy pigs in mud.
Ever wonder why you are asked promptly about your insurance upon entering these hospitals and medical facilities? It is to start the “Chi-Ching!” of the register. At the end of the day the insurance company will negotiate what to pay, if you have insurance, and if not the hospital will determine what you have to pay, this according to that news item, on CNN. Because these bills are so high and nontransparent a negotiated amount does not deprive them of the sweet deal that will continue to fatten their C.E.Os.
So who will continue to believe that health systems are there to cure diseases and increase the quality of public health? If you believe so they have conditioned you too like Pavlov's dogs.
My proposal is that people should go back to natural living. See THE REAL REASONS WE DIE of a previous blog. What I will say here too is that I guarantee you that if we eat right and live right we will not have cancers, and hundreds of other diseases. It is not even hard to do… all one has to do is to look at the lifestyle of others who have no cancer in their family or ancestry, people like those who live off the land instead of the supermarket shelves.
People like those who are less stressed. People like those who can smell the coffee, people like those who are not hell bent for leather to get rich.
People like those who have love in their hearts for their fellowman. People like those who respect nature and appreciate that there is healing from the earth, and the trees it gives to fight diseases and for a healing of the nations. People like those who respect pure water instead of that which is laced with chemicals, unfiltered medicines, and passed on for drinking and bathing.
These people certainly are survivors in this time and have not fallen as carrion for the feasts of pharmaceutical industries and hospitals C.E.Os.
In the meantime fly me to the moon let me wait amongst the stars. I intend to survive strong and live a healthy life after prostate cancer. I wait for the time when no resident will say I am sick and money will not be the cancer that corrupts humanity, and finally, when the dredging by health systems stop, and another money vein for the rich and famous is evaporated.
