EXPOSED - No such thing as a Miracle Cure
Day 21 Health Activist Writers Month Challenge
Today's prompt: Miracle Cure. Write a news-style article on a miracle cure. What’s the cure? How do you get the cure? Be sure to include a disclaimer ;)
I would love a "miracle cure" for my cwd (children with diabetes), not to mention my mom's MS, friends with cancer, asthma, autism, severe food allergies, and so many more chronic illnesses. However, there is no such thing as a miracle cure. No amount of cinnamon, vitamin D, fad diets, moss from trees in the Amazon, or magic fairy farts will cure diabetes or other chronic illness.
What will cure diabetes and other chronic illnesses is hard work, advocacy, research, and dedication from scientists, governments, patients and physicians. In the meantime those with chronic illnesses should and will continue to be vigilant, involved, educated, and hopeful.
A cure will come when more people follow the words and actions of people like Tom Karlya. I mention his because I love his tag line more than any other "In It To End It" and he is always out there working hard to put an end to diabetes.
That's all I have to say about that.
