Yes and a great example is the tritherapy which is so far the best way to treat AIDS. It has been around for what ? 10 years now and as everybody knows AIDS has almost disappeared from Africa thanks to the "democratization" of that treatment sold in African countries at a very cheap price ... OR NOT !

If anything you are not cynical enough when considering human nature and greed.
I have no admiration at all for that team who, let's face it, must be thinking about all the money they will be making off this new technology a little more than its actual benefits for all mankind.

I have nothing but admiration for the team at the Boston Children's Hospital who developed this innovation. Well done!
