Has it ever bugged anyone else that Stargate Command never messed with healing technology? Clearly it worked and was safe with limited use. Was it ever explained why they ditched the healing technology?

I didnt think they had much success with healing tech. The sarcophagus had a bad effect of the mental stability of its user and the healing hand device could only be used by some who knew how to use it and had naquada in their blood.

I would say it was abandonned simply because it could have solved any problem they had with any person dying.

But in limited use the sarcophagus seemed safe. Daniel Jackson used it a couple times and O'neill used it many when he was tortured by Ba'al.

Agreed.

One or two times may be ok but Daniel seemed to suffer pretty quickly when he continually used it - cant remember the ep named but Daniel saved that princess when she was about to kill herself and the rest of SG-1 were put to work in the naquada mines.
It seemed addictive so it may not have been safe to used in limited quantities.

My thoughts were always that they should have kept it and used it only under a doctor's care, overseen by a governmental agency (or something like that). Morphine is just as addictive and just as deadly. But for all we know, aside from revivng the dead and patching holes in people, the curative effects on deseases could be temporary.
