So after reading all your comments I have figured out why nothing seems to work on my dog's fleas (by the way they are gone). Fleas, like a virus, have a rather short life span and they reproduce in large numbers. This makes it very easy for one flea that becomes immune to repopulate on my dog. Though it's very unlikely that the fleas evolved while living on my dog, this would explain why over the counter medications seemed to fail. It's really upsetting that this happens but this is very good for pharmaceutical companies because they have to keep coming out with the next product. However this is very bad for the consumer. The only things that work against the fleas become perscription only and the treatments you can buy at the store stop working. This puts money in everyone's pockets except your own.
Allegedly (I think this is true but can't find any real evidence except for a story of FOX news) there is a cure for most cancers; however this cure is found very readily and pharmaceutical companies will not do anything with this information because there is no real profit to be made. Maybe one day in the near future a cure for all (not most) cancers will be found that costs enough for pharmaceutical companies to be interested in.
