hi,
i search on line about Black death, HIV, and somthing else about Virus.

however, i could not get a yes or no answer. also, i heard of that Virus are some pieces of DNA. is it right?

best ...

I think bubonic plague is a bacterium, not a virus.

A virus is very different from bacteria, as it can not reproduce without the cells of a host (even bacteria can be affected by virus).

[Edit]
Only defense against viral infection is inoculation......

And all that really does is prepare/ready your own immune system for rapid defense against the specific virus. Flu virus mutates at least once a year, so a new vaccine is needed annually.

Hey, guys

There will always be new disease strains, as human population centers are breeding grounds. Clean water, food, hygiene, environment, etc. lessens the chance of spread and development.

Cancer is a possibilty, but not from the vaccines... more likely from the stem cell treatment.

I believe the future of eliminating disease does not actually reside in the field of current medicine, but instead in nanobot technology. The problem there is that if we are all inoculated with nanobots to combat infection, then our own immune systems will wither in time.

Viruses have been with mankind since before our current form and their remnants actually makeup the majority of our DNA (known as junk DNA). What effect that has had on our development is unknown, but it is possible that some mutated strains have helped us become who we are today.

Some people are allergic to certain vaccines, but the numbers are small in comparison to those that are not. It is really a cost and benefit issue for society; though some will suffer, the majority will prosper (like the Star Trek Vulcan saying: "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.").
----------
Dilema? As in telling the patient they have something like HIV?

Shouldn't be, as the only way a patient can get proper treatment (taking their medications properly), protect others from exposure (inex. through bodily fluids) and inform those that might have been exposed (such as lovers)..... is to be informed.

There was a time when doctors were hesitant to go into detail with their patients concerning their condition. In some places this is still the case, but patients generally handle a situation better when they have all of the information available.

It is also a health concern for all of society when it comes to communicable diseases, so the patient should be fully informed to help protect others.

Hi, cbc

We all have some DNA and RNA  in our cell. Where are the junk DNA?

everyone of us develops from a fertilized egg(embryonic stem cell), but, do you know how the doctors deal with the Virus? or,  the patients were just paranoid and ignorance to the Issue? Do you trust the all infomaion you get from text books or the mass media or the intenet?

best wishes
