Most believe that research into curing STDs should be done.. While on the radio yesterday I heard someone debating weather or not this should be done. He said something like, "We shouldn't be trying to cure these diseases, because we want to discourage people, especially teenagers from having sex."

I strongly disagree with that statement, but I want to know what The Pit thought...

Look for cures for STDs.

Teach intelligent sexual responsibility.

here is a paraphrase of the radio station's view:

lets threaten people with misery so we can force them to do what we want.

It seems a bit harsh. It's not just horny teenagers who get STDs. Older, more responsible members of society get them too. Does this guy want us all to stop having sex? Fat chance!

Then there's the argument of should we neglect someone with an ailment because we don't agree with how they got it? If a bank robber gets shot by the police and arrested, they stitch him/her up. He got shot whilst commiting a crime, but its inhumane to not offer them medical assistance.

I'm with you TS, I strongly disagree.

They're called STI's now.... but I agree with Flying Couch.

There is only one reason pharma companies will research anything - Money.

There're alot of STDs out there and they're on the increase, that means money.

Dumb fucks like this twat on the radio won't stand between pharmaceutical companies and the never-ending search for profit.

The majority of STI's are curable. This sounds like one of those religious fanatics that believe sex is devils work... or something like that.

This is how the world works, Some1 smart grows up with morals and respect for the world, goes to school and is sees this world for what it is, money. Then trys to make a lot of it and looses all that he is. No cure for STDs the end.

That's ridiculous. We should be looking into cures for STD's no matter who it is that most gets them.
and this moment keeps on movin'
we were never meant to hold on.
#18
It's whether.

Nah i'm just playin...

Anyways, I think STD's should be held out until we cure cancer, alztheimers, and any other incurable disease atm. Personally, I think we should cure old age. Someone said it was a disease, let's cure that one. Face it, with old age, comes death, and disease.

We need to find out what makes people old, and destroy it. Either that, or we need to find out how pople should be kept young, without using Olive Olay or some other random cream.

STD's though..hmm...i'm really undecided when it comes to this topic. Personally, I think these diseases should already be cured. Brilliant scientists can create a rocket that can go into space, but cannot cure the common cold.

That guy was an ass though, to put it simply. He probably didn't wait until he was married to have sex. A hypocrite in my eyes.
#19
Yes, discourage people from sex. That's a good plan for the human race.

We need better sex education and research into treating the diseases.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.

well if the pharm. companies were going to research it they would find a way to "treat" and not cure the stds to make more money. i bet aids is cureable but they are suppresing the cure to mak money. i mean the same thing happened with the atom bomb and lots of other keystone history events

Old age is a genetic disease of the soma and is caused by telomere degradation during DNA replication.

Nothing to destroy.
#24
While we're at it, let's disband all fire departments so people will be encouraged to be more responsible with their electrical outlets!

I can't believe anyone would oppose researching cures for illnesses of any sort, regardless of how they're spread. I'd like to think that I'm respectful of others' opinions, but sweet Zombie Jesus! How dumb can a person get before their brains stop managing crucial bodily functions?

Well, we should find a way ro prevent it then. Cure it, or something.

I find it is a bigger disease than anything. If you can get past all the other diseases you catch during your lifetime.

Telomerase renews Telomeres, we've known this for a long time, but it's difficult to activate a gene in every cell in the body when it's not supposed to be on.

Why not?

We're just curing old age, so they have the chance to live forever. It's not necessarily going to make them live forever.

except for herpes and AIDS (both viral) STDs ARE curable.

but the only way to prevent spreading shiz like gonorrhea is to abstain until you're cured.
