    Harry. Tylenol is a brand name similar to Xerox and Google. Your analogy with Tylenol doesn't apply because of name recognition. I go to the local pharmacy and see both Tylenol, and the pharmacy's generic brand of Tylenol. Guess which alway seems to have a lower inventory, regardless of price? TYLENOL.

    Regardless, I would think that there would be more to this if it was completely accurate. Something seems missng from this story.

    Here you go kids.
    No clear answer and I pulled this little snippet to.

    "I am acutely aware that there are cancer patients out there who are fighting every day for their survival, hoping that there is one last chance to get a treatment that may prolong or save their lives.

    For some of you out there to inappropriately make them feel that DCA is the answer to their prayers based on this single early-stage report in a medical research journal is, in my opinion, not acceptable at best -- and despicable at worst."

    There are generic manufacturers in multitude that produce this very same product, out of the patent, how is it possible for them to make money as well?

    Acetaminophen can not be patented any longer.
    So it kinda makes this whole theory a wash.

    You are in the business to make money. You are standing before the pot of gold. Do you leave it there, so that others can enjoy te rainbow? Maybe if you are a socialist. But a capitalist takes the gold and makes his investors rich. End of story. Stop confusing your rhetoric.

    The previous rhetoric is trying to claim that capitalists are socialists to each other. That is fundamentally flawed. They take the pot of gold and 'see ya'.

    Re: Scientists cure cancer, but no one takes notice

    OK. I got the link to work. Interesting read. Seems to me that this kind of research is in the VERY early stages and more needs to be done before it is declared a "cure".

    You need to pay attention to what I wrote. The "pot of gold" eliminates many other "pots of gold". You are correct. The company is in the business of profit. And if maximizing profit means shelving a cure, as you so demonstrated, a company would certainly do that.

    The previous rhetoric is trying to claim that capitalists are socialists to each other. That is fundamentally flawed. They take the pot of gold and 'see ya'.
    Which continues to support my point.

    Re: Scientists cure cancer, but no one takes notice

    Let's also note that a cure for cancer is factors of power more profitable than ANY other 30 drugs. A cure for cancer makes you an instant billionaire and all of your investors instant millionaires. Its the boss of the level. You can go back through the level 10 times or you can kill the boss and get the same. Capitalists kill the boss, socialists send everyone back through the level endlessly.

    Statists are interested in maintaining the status quo, not capitalists.


    This idea that capitalists will protect each other, at the loss of unimaginable wealth, is retarded.
