                                              The vast majority of medical research is now done by for-profit corporations that seek formulas that they can patent and convert into maximum revenue. It's not at all in their interest to cure problems in their customers. They much prefer to offer things that make you feel some relief with an acceptable amount of side effects especially if they may subsequently offer another treatment to mitigate the side effects. Imagine if university labs were still mostly publicly funded for the betterment of humanity instead of for production of revenue generating patent medicines. Just the tendency towards working in secret and never sharing results with colleagues because of intellectual property rights owned by private sponsors is a detriment to better progress.

                                                @puirYorick I'm gonna read this later on bit busy. But based on what I've skimmed so far, I realized I really haven't thought of poaching. A fresh perspective.

                                                  @Richard Casterly Your second paragraph IS the problem because it DOES practically stop the public funding of some research by essentially poaching all the best brains from the field of study to work under competitive umbrellas. Also, cash-strapped governments will point to the private enterprise effort as sufficient rather than funding parallel systems any further so that the public good becomes neglected then vanishes entirely. The small matter of private enterprise being interested in a steady revenue stream but not actually CURING DISEASE or eradication of a problem remains my other big complaint. Researchers labouring under NDAs for some corporation can scarcely say anything if the directors decide to sabotage a promising cure using Capture & Kill tactics to benefit the financial good of shareholders at the expense of the public good. I don't express some random conspiracy theory here but something I experienced from within the private enterprise world. The quarterly reports ruled all matters from R&D to the paint colour scheme in the staff cafeteria. Right and Wrong were alien creeds. I'm not anti-capitalism. Government has no business owning car plants or coal mines or Coca Cola. However, certain things like curing disease and working towards the common public good simply has to have a public backed institution as a safe haven. Imagine if the CDC was run privately. Imagine if the FAA was under private control... Wait, we know how that turned out. Two crashed airliners with hundreds dead and the top selling aircraft model in history grounded globally with thousands of flights cancelled to date.

                                                    The good thing about corporations is that it's THEIR money that they're using and people can simply opt not to patronize their end results if they prove insufficient. Should it work, well of course they should have all the bragging rights and the sole ownership of its patent. After all they gambled their own money and a piece of their lifetime working on something that may never yield results. It's just fair trade. Also corporations doing their own thing does not at all affect the Government's or the common people's interest in public-funded research. The only thing stopping them from ever conducting one is their own interest in the subject at hand and their POV on whether or not it needs more priority than anything else that need funding.

We live for as long as our fate decides and because of the family and friends who have passed we should live and enjoy life and make the world a better place for as long as we are able to. Isn't that a reason? What makes me better than the billions of people who have lived before me?

                                                                  • Stef Willemse

People in the west sometimes even forget they have a body. Their whole life revolved around their brain. I have been to china where they practice Tai Chi, Qi gong, eat very healthy and have natural medicine. Those elderly are miles ahead of western elders. In this academic society it's easy to think you can solve the problem of your body's health using your brain's intellect, while of course the most effective way to get a healthy body, is to maintain it USING your body.

Most human life is spent learning and catching up to where we should be in skills and knowledge. By the time the brain is mature and start to be productive, time runs out and illness starts degrading tissues. So 200 years for a human would be more realistic to allow a person to experience a realistic human perspective.

As is, we have overcrowding problems in so many cities across the world. And in places like the middle-east, family planning discussions are taboo., and they reproduce way too fast, as in some parts of India. Objectively speaking, this isn't necessarily a good thing, I feel.

My grandmother is 85 and her body is slowly shutting down. Her quality of life is nonexistent in this state. What good is modern medicine when it prolongs human life to the point where one has no dignity left? This also causes tremendous financial burdens on families, often leading to financial ruin and bankruptcy. If medicine has prolonged your life to the point of needing someone to wipe your butt, I fail to see the miracle.

Wars would start for resources continuously since a lot of people would stop dying.There are 8 billion people in the world right now and it is to be expected there to be 11 billion people in the world by 2100. This is taken into account with all the death occurring. I f the majority of those deaths stopped then the population would quickly gain. Of course we might find other planets to inhabit by then but that's for another discussion. The resources will be used up much quicker. The average person eats about 50 tonnes of food in his/her life time and consumes 58,400 liters in their lifetime.
