Selfishness, Hatred and Greed are like diseases spreading across the world. Man kill one another on a daily basis as if life is meaningless and they have the right to decide who dies and who lives. How can one take the most precious gift given to another and think that it’s okay?  There is nothing heroic about being a murderer. In fact many are cowards who find power only when they have a gun in their hand and even then they remain cowards because they kill and then hide.

Selfishness and greed have allowed some to become insensitive to the plight of others. The extent of how greed have taken over have manifested itself in that Detroit Doctor Farid Fata who was accused of intentionally misdiagnosing over 500 people and subjecting them to cancer treatment although they did not have the disease. According to court records, he submitted approximately $225 million in claims to Medicare over six years. He pleaded guilty to 13 counts of Medicare fraud.

The sad truth is that he is not the only one guilty of this practice. Cancer treatment has become a multi-million dollar industry, which might be part of the reason that we have not yet found a cure. The powers that be are more interested in coming up with expensive treatments that will continue to keep their bank accounts fat.  They are not interested in finding a cure and anyone holding their breath waiting to hear the announcement of a cure would sooner die from lack of air. If they find one believe me we will never hear about it. In fact there are many biologic drugs currently on the market which are known to increase the risk of cancer and yet we wonder why cancer cases continue to rise.

Any chance to find a cure for cancer will only come about when doctors go back to being doctors and less like businessmen and woman and patients are viewed as people and less like commodities. But lets face it who is going to be brave enough to stand up to these big drug companies and institutions who are making billions from cancer treatment? Let’s just say I am not holding my breath…
