Must there no more be done.

I just learned that migraines are the number 2 largest disabler of people around the world. 47 million people have migraines and yet research into them is woefully underfunded. Apparently in the US, there is $20 million dedicated to migraine research. And while that seems like a big number to me – it is nothing like the funding for less pervasive diseases that afflict fewer people. I think I remember a $200 million number. You could make a Hollywood Action movie for what we spend on a migraine research.
And the American Disability codes have no code for migraine? Is that true? I mean. Wow. Come on guys. This is ridiculous.
