And then we all became vampires

I seriously almost cried at this. That is a seriously brave family.
And all that newfound faith in humanity is instantly re-destroyed by the YouTube comments. Thanks, internet.
Stars are for the research, which is amazing.
Well won't Old Zircon feel stupid when all those unsafe reactors are used to create cancers that cure AIDS.
No energy plant whether it's coal or renewable solar/wind energy is 100% safe. You have a modicum of risk with any power plant.
No new nuclear power plants have been built in 30 years due to government policies and the NIBMY attitude. Yet, we need to move away from coal and natural gas, and solar/wind isn't efficient enough, so nuclear is the obvious choice.
Yes there is a potential for something bad, but be reminded that Chernobyl was a piece of shit reactor and Fukushima held up surprisingly well after a 9.0 Earthquake Thyroid cancers are an obvious problem in the area, and it's not a perfect solution, but considering that many coal mine workers get black lung, it's a better direction, and the only realistic bridge we have from fossil fuels to something renewable (or even fusion energy). That magnitude of a natural disaster is rare, and even so we can learn from it to build safer reactors. The Japanese didn't build a shoddy reactor.
Fossil fuels are running out. Solar/wind technology isn't to the level yet where we can completely support ourselves on it. Nuclear is the obvious bridge we need.

This got me in the feels. I'm tearing up because this is fantastic.

Can they cure AIDS with leukemia?
They'd still be using fire to fight fire, so...maybe if it was modified leukemia?

That's a game changer. It makes complete sense too, given how effective HIV is at destroying T-helper cells. Really wonderful. I'm glad to live in an age where we can try such things.

Eep, I dont like the way they are focusing on the modified hiv virus....it would be just about as risky if they chose to deliver the gene with the common cold.

Also funny how I dont see many people using the word "gene therapy" but that is exactly what it is.
