    Why Don't We Have a Cure for Spinal Cord Injury? 2016

    This article is from last year, I am still very hopeful for the cure

    While there are still some practical barriers that exist, once the mental barriers have been overcome, practical barriers become less insurmountable. We could place a man on the moon because someone believed it could be achieved. We can obtain encyclopedic knowledge through the air on a handheld device because someone believed it could be achieved. While there have been many blockades to the belief that spinal cord injury can be cured, many of these mental obstacles have been overcome, and hopefully, in the near future, we can say that a cure for spinal cord injury has been achieved.

    We put man on moon largely due to Nazi tech. Maybe we will be in a better place If Hitler put a priority in treating the paralegic lol.
    But we still have aliens... Who knows when they will visit earth. One can only dream.

    I still say lack of belief in front line medicine. Plus, we're such a small population. A friend's son has DIPG (diffuse intrinsic pons glioma) .. an untreatable cancer that forms tumours throughout the brainstem and is inoperable. He's survived (and still playing hockey at 8yrs old!) more than 7 months now.

    A relative through marriage also had this and was 2yrs old ... he lasted 6 months and passed last week.

    One would think suffering gets the funds, but nope.

    DIPG attacks children and those affected survive less than a year.

    The helpless disabled were the first to be eliminated by Nazi Germany.

    Monopolistic big Pharma isn't after cures. It knows the money is in the distribution chain of their bandaid solution. The good news is an unravelling of this problem has begun:

    Maybe If we combine Chinese gov funding with Intl researchers. China has much funding But not many top researchers.

    China has a history of 'faking' their outcomes in research. Not interested.

    It is frustrating to me that if we had enough awareness and money, paralysis could be solved. Heartbreaking and tragic really .. as we keep losing members here.
