The .99 sale on “Quest for the Red Sapphire” is going great! Make sure you get yours at http://amzn.to/1npYd0S before it’s over! Today I have a bad cold. I just want to get in bed and stay there forever. As I was in bed blowing my nose I thought to myself, why can’t they cure this thing? My only advice has been to wait it out. That could take 7-10 days. We can put a man on the moon. We can cure Ebola. We can make Nano computers. We split the atom. We can inoculate against chicken pox and a host of other diseases and ailments. We can overthrow countries. We can make frozen pizzas that taste nearly as good as take out. We could feed the world if politics didn’t get in the way. So why oh why can’t we cure the common cold? Is anyone even trying? All I see are treatments for the symptoms. It’s nice to have cough medicine or nasal mists or cough drops or Tylenol but all these medicines treat symptoms. The root problem remains and all I can do is fall back on Mom’s recommendations of clear fluids and rest. It seems like there should be something more that can be done. There is certainly a market for this as people come down with colds all the time. A cure would sell at whatever price you set. This is a horrible feeling and I want it gone. Still, the only treatments that come out are for the symptoms. Is it that hard to pin down? Or is there more money treating it than curing it. In the end it always comes down to money. What will make the pharmaceutical company richer. Curing an illness takes away a customer. Why would a company want to do that? Maybe someone has come up with the cure already but is sitting on it so their parent company can continue to profit from their treatments? If that were true then someone would be playing with fire. If it ever came out that they had an antidote and kept it a secret, there would be uproar. Realistically the chances of that are slim. If they had the cure, who is to say another company wouldn’t come up with the same cure and patent it. Then you would be the loser. No, I think if there was a cure, it would be released. I just don’t think they’re looking very hard for one. Until society comes forward and says, “This is important” the attempt to cure the illness will sit on the back burner with a host of other things waiting for someone to stumble over the cure
