Research is dominated by the pharmacological industry, which has decided that the only permissible "research" is testing one drug against another, abusing animals and unravelling DNA. This "research" can only treat, not prevent or cure, disease due to western lifestyle. In part, because there are almost no realistic animal models of human disease. Even a laboratory animal is rarely as stressed and constipated as the average westerner.
Ideas coming from outside the pharmaceutical industry are seen as heresy and lead to vilification by the medical specialists and from the popular press. A doctor thinking outside the box risks death by a thousand cuts, excommunication and permanent exile to the wilderness. Thus was it ever, Galileo, and Semelweiss included.
Research has become a cult worshipping DNA, instead of working to prevent disease.
Arab children do not get asthma, unless they eat western "food". Pain is the result of nerve damage - neuropathic pain. Modern childbirth causes 90% of women's gynaecological problems. Even twenty years ago, diabetes was rare. Modern diseases are not drug deficiency diseases, they are the direct consequences of a modern western lifestyle.
But this information does not make money, whereas Western disease does make money.
Big Pharma - the sicker the population, the more drugs they sell
Health insurance companies - the higher the premium, the more money they collect
Government - the healthcare industry grows regardless of recession or depression
