Drugs never cure disease.

Drugs never cure disease.
They merely hush the voice
of nature’s protest, and pull
down the danger signals she
erects along the pathway of
transgression. Any poison taken
into the system has to be
reckoned with later on even
though it palliates present
symptoms. Pain may
disappear, but the patient
is left in a worse condition,
though unconscious of it
at the time.

– Daniel H. Kress, M.D.
