Here! Here! Change R&D Priorities Now

Jo Nova says it well at: http://joannenova.com.au/2014/05/a-first-one-patients-widespread-cancer-cured-with-an-engineered-virus/

This is another example of why I’m so passionate about getting research money out of dead-end efforts to change the weather and into medical research. The extraordinary news broke last week that the Mayo Clinic had used a genetically modified virus to cure treat one woman of metastasized and widely spread cancer – specifically myeloma. There are a lot of caveats, this research is quite risky, and it doesn’t apply to most people or most cancers, it is a proof of principle.

We have to stop fighting this “proxy war about economic interests of this generation vs. the next”. — (Sir Peter Gluckman, Chief Science Advisor to the Prime Minister of New Zealand as reported at: http://judithcurry.com/2014/05/22/science-and-policy-reconciling-the-two-cultures/)
