Source. This is a real thing. It’s happening.
This is HUGE news, and of course no one is talking about it because it is not a part of popular culture. For the first time in the history of the world, there is a possible preventative cure for one of the most deadliest viral diseases to have entered the human gene pool. There is hope for those who have been diagnosed with a disease that may have given them only 20 or so years to live. This breakthrough in the science/pharmaceutical community means that other viral diseases and genetic mutations that were once incurable are now on the table for complete eradication. I’m absolutely seething that no one is talking about this on the news 24/7.
Actually, the recent news of a baby cured of HIV is actually the SECOND baby cured of the virus, isn’t it? I am sure I remember that being mentioned before, that this is the second case, though both were ‘cured’ in different ways/were not part of the same case study.
There are astounding breakthroughs and incredible research going on in HIV treatment, therapy, prevention and cure every day, but it barely ever gets touched on. Which is absurd…it should be a primary focus for us as a people really, right up there with climate change and fixing the economy.
