Message posted regarding "Big Pharma"
Dec 27, 2015

Hi Dr. Young, regarding a post blaming the "Big Pharma". In my opinion there is really a concern among the people, that the Pharma blocks curative approaches taking into consideration that they lost an enorm of money if this the case were. At least is legitime to think in this way, since there is not a cure for cancer despite more than 80 years of "cancer research" and the HIV-problem runs in the same road, as considered for many people. This is a perceived problematic when you analize the history of the therapeutic development: it supports rather chronic treatments than curatives ones. I think that the HIV-research support should be directed toward the academia and private initiatives rather than the industry. Anyway, such comments are not proper at "The Body" since it initiative is help the people in front of concerns realted to treatment HIV and other venereal deseases, and related problems. I personaly (like thausends) thank you very much for you labor here and the great support provided to the HIV-infected people. God bless you and the Body Team.
