Yes, I agree. I will be voting for Obama for similar reasons.

Re: Hello everyone!

Yeah, biology is one of my favorite disciplines. I love phagocytes and how they eagerly gobble up pathogens like packman.

Yeah, you're right. He's talking way to much for someone hitting the sauce anyway.

Re: What if autism was contagious? would you spread it?

Let's just say that if NT-ness was contagious, I'd lock myself in an air-right room. :lol: Uhm, I hope you have an air filter there. Or you will suffocate. See? I failed to properly analyze and address the situation as per my NT-ness, and thus, I suffocated! :lol: In a completely off topic tangent,...

Re: do you have multiple sclerosis?

No, but I am fascinated by it and I know three people with the disease, each of varying intensity. My aunt has MS, and lives an almost completely normal life except for an occasional attack where she went partially numb (but has since recovered). My art teacher also has MS, and is somewhat physicall...

Thank you! It's from a movie I'm rather fond of, called The Fountain.

Re: Stem-cell breakthroughs

I think we should focus on slowing and stopping progression than curing it. Lets start small, eh? That's basically what this is. For instance, you can create neural stem cells and implant them in an MS patient, but it's merely replacing lost cells without addressing the underlying problem. It is th...

Re: Stem-cell breakthroughs

Interesting topic but I hold many doubts that the diseases can be cured. Maybe not yet, but it's certainly a start! And there's a long path ahead of us. :) I will make sure to watch this topic as this might attract a lot of controversy and philosophical argument. Why? These are adult stem cells, no...

Stem-cell breakthroughs

This is really quite amazing, I first read about it in a similar research project from the journal nature just last week. In the article, scientists have actually managed to remove the skin cells of elderly patients with Amytrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's disease) and "reprogrammed"...
