I have stock in JNJ.and MDT. I used to have stock in MNMD before it sold to
Do I want to make money; of course I do.
Do I want a cure for type 1 diabetes; of course I do.
Do I use the diabetes supplies these companies manufacture and pay for them;
Companies like Johnson & Johnson, Medtronic, etc. do make products for
diabetics but they are also selling products for  far more diseases and
Do I think the owners of these companies are trying to help us and still make
millions of dollars; yes.
If they give some back for research toward a cure; good for them and us.
If my doctor specializes in diabetes and has family with the disease that that
mean he is only in it for the money? No way!!!! He is one of the very best.
He and all of these products has kept me alive and in pretty good health for
years. I give thanks for all of the above, daily.
Just my opinion. Everyone is entitled to theirs.
I have been on insulin for 56 years and pumping for 20 yrs. + or _.

Look a little closer at J&J, I would not call it a family company since it
been a large public multinational company with stock on the NYSE for many
years .  If a cure is found, why would anyone want to buy it and destroy it?
What would that accomplish?  Besides the meter/strip business is a very small
part of J&J's total $45.85 Billion revenue.  Of course the test strips are
tremendously profitable for all meter/strip companies but that is what the
investors deserve. Why should they expect less? Just my thoughts.  -- Hal in
