    In the medical industry, treatments are often more profitable than cures.

    Dichloroacetate is such a simple chemical that it can't be patented by a major pharmaceutical company, so they aren't funding further research for it.

    @Zhaohong, Because it's too simple. It can't be patented, so the major pharmaceutical companies have no profit incentive to fund any research. In fact, it makes more sense for them to promote fear, uncertainty, and doubt, because a cheap cure would destroy the profitability of their expensive treatments.

    tl;dr -- MONEY!
