i talked to an abbott rep several years back . they sometimes install severe pain patients with a port and install a pain metering pump . the liquid compound is made from a extract from skin secretions of the poison arrow frog . in max dosage it is said to be up to 300 times more potent than morphine . but without the opiate addiction . it does not attach itself to the mu receptors in the brain and cause tolerance and addiction the same as opiates do . tell me its not corporate pharmaceutical greed that is keeping this from becoming a reality ?
If it were corporate greed and they could make money from it, it would be available!! Just wait until "OBAMACare" comes into effect! Research is money driven and if they take away the finacial gain then there will be no research!! People have no idea the ramifications of this government health initiative. People are expecting heath care to stay the same as it is now only the government is going to provide it. I have heard people say "The US governement has enough money to provide us all with healthcare" That is wrong because the US government has no money. It is the tax payers money that will be used and dont believe for a minute that they will take it from some other source-no!-we will just be taxed more! I just shudder to think about what is going to happen. They think there are Dr and nurse shortages now!? It will get much much worse. The life expectancy will drop in this country a great deal as well!
hi carlk, there's a type of sea sponge with over 1000 x the pain reliver than morphine. but whats the point? any good chemist can make drugs that do all kinds of stuff. the goverment won't let the cure for all kinds of things that other countries have.its called too much big brother.our founding fathers grew and smoked pot made their own alcohol.but we stand by and let them scare us into pain clinics, drug programs and even onto the streets to look for illegal drugs. then have the nerve to put it on cable tv.yes people shooting up herion and doing god only knows what? sorry about all that,just venting.
