Health care is an area where I have to admit my devotion to capitalism sometimes doesn’t garner the best results for society. It seems to me that our medical “industry” (Hospitals, Doctors, Pharmaceutical companies and so forth) have gone extensively into the treatment of illness and not the eradication of it.
It is far more profitable to find something that a person has to take every day for the rest of their life to treat an illness than it is to find a drug or treatment that actually cures it. This of course makes perfect business sense but still kinda sucks for the greater good of the community. Just thinking out load.
