I just read that a place called NIAID, spent $1.541 billion on AIDS in 2009. More surprising, was that they had only spent 3% of that, on "finding a cure" research. I never hear about AIDS anymore. It seems like a disease from the past. I've heard, that due to aggressive treatments, having HIV these days, is like a walk in the park. But considering how much money we have spent on it over the years, It seems kind of funny that we don't have a cure. So consider this, if they cure AIDS, they can't get paid to treat it anymore. Same goes for all the other diseases that we spend billions on.
