First and foremost, people wanna make money. The person (or company) who develops the cure for the common cold would be a trillionaire.
well it all comes down to greed ultimately. business wise it makes more sense to treat a symptom than cure a disease. repeat business is pretty much econ 101 for sustained existence. Sure you could make a quick fortune selling a cure, but when nobody has it anymore, you just lost your entire market. Good for 1 persons lifetime but when you figure its a company not a person longterm sustainability is more desirable.

I think these companies come up with cocktails of crap and then try to find uses for it. Not much caring for how it effects a person or looking into how it would effect a person when taken with another med for a similar problem. I know my wife has had some bad reactions after taking a new med that just didnt jive with one she was already taking.
