I had a thought yesterday, one that I am sure that you have had before. The vax industry is ALL about money. They spent millions developing a vaccine for CHICKEN POX! a terrifically benign disease that causes very few compications in healthy children. And now, every kid in America HAS TO HAVE IT!! Ridiculous. Yet, thousands of babies die EVERY DAY in Africa from diseases like Cholera. Is there a vaccine for this? Is anyone REALLY working on it? Why would they? There certainly isn't much money tob e made from helping the poor homeless children who have NO money. How crazy that there are a dozen drugs out there to help a man get an erection, but nothing to help prevent cholera or malaria that is readily available and relatively effective.

Thousands of people die from starvation too. I don't see anyone curing world hunger. Many people could use food way more than a shot.

There ya go! Why doesn't Merck START a worldwide food drive. Imagine what just 1 million dollars could buy! the animals that could be raised for milk and meat, the farming tools that could be bought.

I'm so glad to see you say that the way you did-not "think of the grain that could be bought!"<br><br>
You eat bread once. You get milk from a cow every day....(well, except when she's dry, of course<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> )<br><br>
But yeah-why not? Aren't they where "the patients come first"?<br>
So much for letting your food be your medicine....
