I know what you mean Mark82, it seems that not even the most powerful governments in the world are as powerful as the mega corporations, including those that you are referring to. And what compounds this problem more when it comes to BB and BO, is the psychological paralysis that overwhelms sufferers - shame. It is a shame that sufferers have to feel shame for having a condition that we have no control over.
If it were not this self-defeating position of 'hiding behind the shame' more of us would bring to the public eye this unjust concept most people have of sufferers, that we are not clean. However, this internal dialogue between shame and courage is a very personal one that we each have to face individually. Both positions are very painful and difficult to deal with. Some sufferers have come to the limelight, and I have posted their videos in my blog. I am certain that these exceptionally courageous people found this to be their best coping tool. Everyone copes differently.
Getting back to the powerful corporations and their possible resistance to a simple solution to BB and BO that may hurt their bottom line, the only weapon we have to fight for our cause is ourselves individually, by continuing to have our internal dialogue against the shame we carry, and learning to tear down these walls so that we may take one step at a time, supporting research, and living our lives shame-free. This is most certainly the first step :)
