Yes,those evil bastards!
No, Your just a Tard!
I haven't read the whole thread and not going to look for the answer to this, but although i recognise it is possible they make cures come late and so on in some cases, first of all, there have been a lot of major cures revealed lastly, like some types of cancer and some other illnesses i've read/watched about them(watch Lorenzo's oil film which is about some guys discovering a cure for ALD illness), and, more important, it is impossible to stop people from revealing cures, of course not everybody is good, but neither everybody is evil, and there are lots of brilliant scientists which are good people, and although their companies may try to silence them, some if not most of them would however have been revealed somehow. Apart from that, believe it or not, not all millionaire bussinessmen have horns, some of them indeed think about the rest of humanity...
We need population control, its fact, if we cure every illness and everyone lives to be 150+ we will very quickly run out of room and resources..
Read these stats on AIDS in Africa man. It's STAGGERING. Africa is YUCK. Only place where you can get Hemmoragic Fevers of all sorts too. Ebola ftl.

Well, imagine what would happen if a 'cure' for aging, virtual immortality, was found. It isn't as impossible as it sounds either.
Orolt, yes, there are examples of scientists & inventors being rather selfless and releasing research into the public domain, unfortunately they are the exception rather than the rule imo.
Give a man a fire and he is warm for a day... set a man on fire and he is warm for the rest of his life!
