Is it easier to develop a vaccine for an illness or to develop a cure for it?

Or perhaps never catch it in the first place.

Prevention is key in many health conditions.

Brush teeth and diet for healthy teeth.

Boil and sterilise drinking water to prevent cholera and a host of other diseases.

Wear a condom to protect against HIV, Hep B and other STDs.

Mosquito nets to prevent malaria.

Etc, etc

That's treatment, the quinine in the tonic works against the shaking caused by malaria.

Can also be a treatment for some types of MS.
