Thank you, science!

Breast cancer breakthrough (old news):

And now the huge Alzheimers breakthrough:

God bless the diligent men and women working on these scourges.

And God damn the FDA, which will keep treatments/drugs utilizing these discoveries these from your afflicted loved ones for the next 15+ years.

My Grandmother died of Alzheimers disease. I'm always thrilled to hear break through science regarding a cure. Thanks for posting.

I lost my biological Mom in January of last year to breast cancer.

My foster mother has a history of Alzheimers in her family.

I always keep an ear out for news on these topics.

There has to be a vetting system. If you have a safe, effective alternative to years-long case studies that research the efficacy and potential pitfalls of a drug, I'm all ears.

In between nothing and the present system, there has to be a better alternative.

like all the other countries in the world?

The FDA is a purely political organization.

I am not completely certain that their upper echelon aren't publicly traded like a stock.

You mean those fine countries that gave us thalidomide babies?

I still want to hear an alternative.

Whether I present one or not, is the definitive answer?

I don't know of one.

I wouldn't have thought of a better way to plant crops 200 years ago. . .but it doesn't mean there wasn't one.

I can still look at the system, compared to others, and say that our system is bad.

Terminally ill patients or those that have gone through current treatment options are given access to experimental medications on a volunteer basis. Fold them into case studies. Although, that still leaves finding a way to fund increased production.

Yes, let's wait years when we're dealing with cancer and Alzheimer's.

You might have a point for less serious conditions, but in this case your blind worship of government is hurting patients. What does an Alzheimer's patient have to lose? Or a breast cancer patient who isn't responding to the currently approved treatments?

Is that what you think the FDA does?

The FDA is an instrument through which taxpayers' money is funneled to, and power consolidated among large pharmaceutical companies. Successful new treatments developed by entities outside of the highly political pharma network that threaten the big money patents are supressed, discredited or stolen.

For a sickening example of this, watch the documentary "Burzynski". It shows the outrageous lengths the FDA will go to to protect big pharma. Whether his treatments work or not, you will see the main function and motives of the FDA. It will turn the objective viewer's stomach. Watch the whole thing and let me know what you think.

He's a fraud. His cases that are released are carefully chosen, and he doesn't release his statistics for failed treatment.

That documentary was a running infomercial with zero objective rebuttal. I had to turn it off halfway through.

Motivated and inspired by the Almighty, doctors and scientists make great breakthroughs. We'll all still die and leave this Earth and need to prepare ourselves to meet God face to face. Thank You GOD!
