    So when I am 56 years old I will be able to hear again. Because it will be 20 years before it gets here.

    That's depressing :(. True, but non the less depressing. Guess I'll have to listen to this constant ring-a-ding till I'm 76.

    Wrong. Cures will never be allowed here, especially a one time dose. Now if it was a pill to take everyday for the rest of your life it would be available next week.

    My dad had prostrate cancer a few years ago and the doc said you can with take it out and be done with it or you can go threw Kemp and it might come back. My dad opted for removal. The doc prescribed cialis to increase blood flow to that area to aid in healing. He had to fight tooth and nail to get insurance to pay for it.

    You guys are probably right that it will never come here cause it is not profitable.

    I don't really believe it, I've had tinnitus for over 40 years and have seen hearing specialists, the whole deal.

    Check out the American Tinnitus Assn.

    http://www.ata.org/

    There is no cure for tinnitus. The only way to reach that ultimate silence is by supporting ATA's research program. ATA gives you, the individual, the ability to invest in that collective goal of silencing ringing in the ears.

    I joined for 1 year about 30 years ago, I also would not send money but it's a good read.

    I'm sure the same thing was said about Penicillin, Viagra and my favorite Cialis.:)

    You're talking to an organization that makes 100% of its profits from SEARCHING for a cure. Do you really think they are going to find a cure and end their money train? I'm skeptical of all the oh give us money so we can find a cure. Name one of them that has ever found a cure? NONE of them have I wonder why? MONEY they want it and we got it.

    When a doctor (in Australia as I recall) discovered that a bacteria or virus in folks' stomach caused much of the stomach ulcers, the AMA and all doctors dismissed his finding.

    They "knew" stress caused all stomach ulcers and they were making good money selling anti-stress pills.

    Turned out he was right:

    I agree, the pharmaceutical companies have no reason to provide us with cures. Then they wouldn't have the continual income. Same reason why we can't buy cars that would last us our lifetimes. The technology is there, but no incentive for the auto makers.
    You hear rumors that some cancers have been cured. Wouldn't shock me at all if it were true and only the ultra rich or top government dogs have access to them.
