Cure or Care
I am a science guy. I love everything about science and I and enjoy reading articles about it. I was on the worldmag website when I found this article about cure or care. The article talks about how why the government and the new healthcare plan is not putting more effort to funding more programs to find cures for diseases like cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer's. We live in a world where there is constant drag for power and who possess the best technology, but when it comes to funding more programs for diseases that have plagued us for a long time, we are satisfied with just caring for the afflicted. I do not agree with this. A lot of resources are being wasted. I do not like the way healthcare is being treated not only in this country, but around the world. People are dying from the most common and basic diseases. I can only hope and pray that we as a society will step up and start setting our priorities straight.
