Live in a Democracy and you'll learn what life is. Thanks to a still liberal media we hear snippets of shit like this, but in a fortnight everything the media reports will be "mice cured of diabetes become zombies" or more realistically "lab mice cured of diabetes die painfully due to FDA-banned stem-cell treatment, Government bans Stem-cell testing on mice"
Let's face it, there's WAY too many POOR politicians that need drug company money to let something like this actually gain a foothold in the market. There's way to damn many companies making money off the diabetics to let a simple injection cure them. No, the Government (CORPORATIONS) would rather let them suffer until they die requiring injections (that only the drug companies can provide AT A PRICE) every so many hours, every day. Not only that, but you have to test your "levels" every 3 hours with a 3 cent strip of paper and some chemicals (that magically make it cost 70 cents) to make sure you're balanced.
Your damn cat's hairball problem is caused by an additive in the food that causes intestinal irritation, so that you buy the special hairball formulated food and hairball easing medicine (literally flavored petroleum jelly) that's marked up to astronomical levels. Generic Vasoline and fish blood would do the same damn thing, but because you're purchasing the "Scientific formulation" you're "treating your cat better".
When I was in college there was a press release of a technology that "with an uncomfortable electric stimulation" your teeth would be electroplated with a hard layer of synthetic materials. This meant no cavities, ever. Granted, a new "dental research organization" funded by the Dentists themselves put that line on the back burner and all but killed any media attention. My last 'dentist' jammed a needle in my cheek while pinching and shaking said cheek to "numb the area" that cheek bled for 2 days and I still felt damn near everything he did to me. I'd rather pull each tooth out with his freshly removed cervical vertebrae, and pay for a set of dentures than return to the same hack job excuse for a dentist. He's the only one in cascade Iowa if you must know.
Good luck getting ahead in this Corp-ocracy, you'll have to invent the next forceful arse-dialating device that earns the corporations their 99 percent while defecating on human beings worldwide.
