A friend of mine found out today that his HCV viral infection has been “eradicated”. A testimony to science. He was a health care worker in the late 70’s and it took almost 30 years for symptoms to show itself in his liver. Taking interferon and ribavirin for 6 months, he was fortunate that the strain of virus he was infected with responded well to this new therapy….. This is not always the case.
Science can be a wonderful thing….. Humanity needs leaders that understand how to direct it for the common good. Businesses that produce TANGIBLE social benefit will survive the economic Darwinism this world economy is going through. The shake out is only beginning for some of the smoke and mirror tech companies. More company consolidation and over seas outsourcing lies ahead. Watch and see.
