Fascinating question, since it excludes any quality of life outcome and of course also excludes a well-known class of effective drugs.
Here are some examples off the top of my head:
- Tetanus antitoxin
- Chemotherapy for liquid tumours (e.g. Hodgkin’s lymphoma)
And some drugs promoted by WDDTY that can’t cure people:
- High dose vitamins
Antibiotics are a huge class of drugs and represent a significant proportion of all curative therapeutic uses of drugs. Excluding these indicates an agenda but still fails to include all therapeutic drugs.
Why don’t doctors tell you that antibiotics are the only drugs that can cure disease?
Because it’s not true.
