Designer Babies Come To Market. Better Option Possible

Britain is planning to go ahead with the Thee Parent IVF for Fertility treatment.

This would help parents with Mitochondrial Disorder in preventing the faulty Genes responsible for this disorder from being passed on to the child.

The other fall out is this would help make ‘Designer Babies,’, made to order.

Though there are objections to this on ethical grounds, it is a welcome step for people misuse any anything if it suits them.

The Process involved is as follows.

Doctor Forces Surgery To Meet Target, Patient Dies

I have been critical of some Doctors who have become crass after money and for unethical practices like accepting gifts from Pharma Companies, forcing patients to take unnecessary medicines.

The scenario worsened after the entry of Corporates into Medicare making Medicare a Hospitality Industry.

Many of the Corporate run hospitals are meant for Star Hotel Luxury than for patient Care.

You may some of my posts under Medicine, Consumer forum.

Now emerges a shocker.

A Doctor in Uk forced operation on a patient to meet his ‘Target!’

He met his Target but the patient died.

There is another case where a Doctor forced three operations on a patient, patient died.

Corporates mean profit, Profit means Sales ‘Targets”

This evil can be eradicated only by patients going to Doctors who thorough checks you up physically,does not prescribe a battery of Tests , who listens to your problem , most importantly does not work in a Corporate run Hospital, and who does not have a Fancy Title or Degree.

Cancer Drugs Combinations Prices

Cost of Cancer Drugs are sky rocketing.

Drug Companies arbitrarily fix rates and when an indigenous manufacturer is ready to supply at a fraction of the cost, these Drug companies hide behind patents.

A sample.

India’s patent appeals office has rejected Bayer AG’s plea to stop the production of a cheaper generic version of a patented cancer drug in a ruling that health groups say is an important precedent for getting inexpensive lifesaving medicines to the poor.

Last year, India’s patent office allowed local drug manufacturer Natco Pharma Ltd. to produce a generic version of Bayer’s kidney and liver cancer drug Nexavar on the grounds it would make the drug available to the public at a reasonably affordable price. It was the first use of compulsory licensing under Indian patent laws passed in 2005…
I have a friend in Bangalore whose close relative is a distributor for Cancer drugs.

He sells a medicine at Rs 8000 to Patients ans he makes a profit of 22% if he sells it Rs.1800!

next time your Doctor recommends you a Cancr Drug, as him show the combination, check the information at the Link below and confront him to prescribe an an equivalent Indian Drug or ask him to give you details of other drugs available in the market.

Please remember these Drugs will not arrest Cancer immediately and you have some time to buy them.
