Is it possible to eradicate all diseases?
by Arthur Foxake, 22 September, 2016
Facebook founder and all round
paskudniak Mark Zuckerberg and his equally greedy, money grubbing and self interested wife have dreamed up this great money making scheme. They have announced they will try to eradicate all diseases by the end of the century. If follows down the same path of greed and self interest previously trodden by Bill and Melinda Gates and their Gates Foundation which has been so sucessful in its efforts to eradicate disease and poverty that it now gets $2 from governments and the United Nations as it spends. So just how feasible is Zuckerberg's grandiose aim?
Pledging $3bn (£2.3bn) to medical research over the next decade, Zuckerberg and wife Priscilla Chan said their ultimate goal was to "cure, prevent or manage all diseases by the end of the century". He did not mention whether this would mean everybody in the world would have so surrender all their privacy to Facebook if we want to get medical help when ill. This would echo Obama's most recent, and probably most revealing statement in support of global tyranny. He said that nations would have to surrender sovereignty to the United Nations in return for security.
By any reckoning, Zuckerberg has set himself a hugely ambitious goal. At the event in San Francisco the Islam loving Jewish techno tycoon admitted it might sound crazy, but pointed out how far science and medicine had come in the last century, after millennia with little progress. Really Zuck? Thinking of the cure for cancer, or the vaccine that will immunise against AIDS are you? In fact wasn't AIDS created by science, a spin off from the quest for a polio vaccine? People may dispute that but nobody has offered a better suggestion.
So how realistic do people whose professional life is spent in medical research rather than in finding new ways to steal people's private information think Zuckerberg's ambition is?
"I don't think it's realistic," says Dr Sheena Cruickshank, lecturer in immunology at the University of Manchester, although she adds that it's "brilliant" that the couple want to invest in medical research.
The problem with treating diseases, she says, is that it's not "a static field".
"Everything changes. Our immune systems change, diseases often change," she says.
Not only do diseases mutate or simply become resistant to drugs as has happened with antibiotics through overprescription, but environmental factors alter the way infections spread.
"Some of the infections are challenging to deal with because we don't understand fully how the mechanism of infection works," Dr. Cruikshank says. There are large gaps in human knowledge. No-one quite knows why some people will become ill if exposed to some strains of the common cold while others won't, for instance. Some non-infectious diseases like cardiovascular disease and type-2 diabetes can be caused by lifestyle, and a "cure" might involve wholesale changes to people's behaviour, she points out. In that case being lectured by a moon faced little shit who has made a fortune stealing people's privacy is probably not going to persuade people to make those changes. You don't have to be a genius to work out that the real agenda here might be to facilitate Facebook getting their hands on our health records.
There's also the sheer scale of investment required. Since 1971 the US National Cancer Institute alone has spent more than $90bn trying to find a cure. President Obama's 2017 budget includes $34bn for HIV efforts. More than $1bn was spent on Ebola research in 2014. Malaria funding has increased tenfold in the past decade, according to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation - but as with all these other conditions, no cure has been forthcoming.
In this context, the figure of $3bn over a decade begins to look like small change. It would of course fund a wonderful phishing campaign for donations to The Zuckerberg foundation.
"It's not anything like enough to beat diseases by the end of the century," says Prof Catherina Pharoah, co-director of the Centre for Charitable Giving and Philanthropy at Cass Business School in London. She points out that total UK spending on research around health amounts to around £8.5bn a year in a wonderful put down of Zuckerberg's ego driven initiative.
The only infectious disease of humans to have been declared eradicated by the World Heath Assembly is smallpox, the last known case having occurred in Somalia in 1977, though the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation aims to rid the world of polio and malaria. This week another buch of self - interested crooks and liars, Microsoft,idiotically said it would "solve" cancer within 10 years by cracking the code of cells.That's pretty rich seeing as in thirty years they haven't cracked how to build an operating system that is fit for purpose.
Nature itself however has eradicated many diseases, most notably The Black Death, by an evolutionary process in which those susceptible to the infection die, leaving those with natural resistance or immunity to continue the species and pass on their evolutionary advantage. When we consider how successful evolution has been compared to the pathetic efforts of science, it's no wonder scientists want to screw up evolution by kicking out the principle of survival of the fittest and replacing it with survival of the weakest.
While the International Taskforce for Disease Eradication has a seven diseases - including measles, mumps and rubella - on its hit list, it considers a further seven - including amebiasis (or amoebiasis) and buruli ulcer - to be ineradicable.
Prof Louis Niessen, health economist at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, is also sceptical that disease can be eliminated altogether.
"It's the old saying," he says. "You have to die of something."
Incidentally the claims of 'science' to have eradicated smallpox must be doubted. Many doctors and researchers have cast doubt on the claimed effectiveness of the vaccine and the disease could easily have disappeared due to a similar evolutionary process as The Black Death.
Still, nerds like Zuickerberg and Bill Gates are not the kind of people to let things like facts and academic rigour to get in the way of their greed for wealth and power.RELATED POSTS:

A look at our prospects should tway - boy Cameron succeed in obtaining parliament's approval for his wish to join Obama's coalition ofg dodgy political opportunists in their attempt to overthrow Syria's President Assad.

Whatever War Crimes Obama Accuses Russia Of You Can Bet America Has done It First.
World policitical leaders and media sycophants are lining up to condemn Russia for the dowing on Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 over Ukraine. Here are a few snippets from our coverage:
The downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over Ukraine shocked the world. A second disaster for the airline within six months involving the same type of aircraft? Those things are probably coincidence, but when we start to dig a little deeper, the conincidences are quickly stretched to breaking point. So as the conspiracy theories start to emerge we look at the bizarre train of events leading up to the disaster.

So Who Are ISIS And What Is Really happening In Iraq
Up until a few short weeks ago ISIS, a group thought to consist of only a few thousand people led by a shadowy figurehead, was hardly mentioned in news bulletins. We in the west thought of Al Qaeda as the force behind insurrection in the middle east, ISIS was nothing more that a chimera, a small, insignificant group of fantasists led by shadowy figures who dreamed of recreating the medieval Islamic Caliphate.

USA Is Arming Both Sides In The Current Iraq Conflict.
Not so long ago Amerca's President was pushing the case for supporting the 'brave, dmocracy loving freedon fighter in Iraq.

Obama had to content himself with arming the rebels. Now thoise same rebels, defeated by Assad have crossed the border to wreak havoc in Iraq.

Adolf Hitler, His Part In Our Downfall
FREE E-BOOK FOR .pdf & Kindle dowload
A thirty five thousand word book on the authoroitarian, undemocratic, bureaucratic dictatorship that is the European Union. Following the outburst of left wing hate politics following Boris Johnson's reminder that the EU has its roots in Hitler's Naziism, which as any intelligent person is aware is both true and very well documented. My blog colleagues and I decided to assemble this collection of our articles (with some long extracts quoted from public domain and creative commons sources) to help people misled by the REMAIN campaign into thinking the arguments are solely economic.
