I don't get that people think he's good looking. He does have nice eyes but he's not my type, but I do like his wit. He was very funny in The Black Adder.

Re: Charles Darwin too Controversial?


Thanks for that info Queeny, very interesting ... I knew obviously that there had to be some medical advisor on the programme so it's good to know.
And it's also good to know that the technical advice behind it is properly researched ... even if sometimes they rush through all the terminology and names of different possible illnesses so quickly!
We're seeing an episode every night now, so House is almost becoming like a serial or a sort of medical soapie in a way. And I confess I'm hooked and just have to watch to see what happens next, especially now that we're at the point where he could end up in jail. Don't suppose he will, though ... lol. Looking forward to see what technicality he uses to get away with it.
Watching the series though seriously makes me realise how important not just correct diagnosis is, but also how important continuing medical research is, for all of us.
Wouldn't it be absolutely wonderful if they could find a sure cure for things like motor neuron disease, cancer, HIV and AIDS, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimers, etc? And from a personal viewpoint a cure for diabetes, the silent killer, would be ideal of course. Sadly research and trials seem to take forever as we all know, and so many of these awful diseases have been stumping the medical boffins for such a long, long time. I reckon even if they do find a cure for diabetes it will be too late for me.

There is already an AIDS 'vaccine' they are testing that is showing some hopeful signs....

There is already a vaccine for preventing Cervical Cancer/HPV....
]Cervical cancer/HPV link


And a Type 1 Diabetes vaccine is going into phase 2 testing....

I know that none of these are a cure all or save all and have a ways to [sign in to see URL] 10 years ago, these were not even possible. So all those people who had the diseases that can now be cured or aided with these vaccines, thought as you do Petal......

Just as those who had Polio, Diphtheria, Pertussis, Tetanus, and the MMR vaccine which protects against the measles, mumps and rubella diseases.

Those are vaccines that we all get as children now, but 100 years ago, those killed or maimed many people.
They have deciphered the human genome and now are beginning to make "specialized" vaccines to fix only what is wrong in the [sign in to see URL] who knows what cure is just around the corner..... So Petal, they may not come fast enough to help you or my BIL, but his kids may be helped.... emoticon

Re: Charles Darwin too Controversial?


Absolutely - I know they have already, and are still daily, making great strides in research and some wonderfully encouraging medical breakthroughs to improve the lives of those with many serious chronic diseases, and it's great that it's an ongoing thing.
It'll always be too late for some of us, somewhere ... I guess I'm just so impatient and would love for someone to be able to wave a magic wand and take all suffering and sickness and pain away. Makes me wonder too, why a loving God if there is one, allows all the suffering in the world ... and not just health-wise either.
