Now this, is a great moment of science!









Ramesh Padman, clad in white lab coat with biology degree in hand, staged a one man protest in front of the office of Congressman Randy Kuhl. Padman was protesting Kuhl's support for the President's veto of the stem cell funding bill.

Eric Massa is running against Kuhl in the 29th district of New York. Massa is a cancer survivor and is a very strong supporter of stem cell research.

I am a little concerned about Massa's position on Genetically modified foods though. There's nothing wrong in that description of the bill, basically it seems to be about protecting small family farmers from large agribusiness. Nothing wrong with that. It's the brief mention of protecting consumers from GMOs that's a little disconcerting. It's food people. It isn't going to hurt you. It would be a shame to get rid of one kind of anti-science only to replace it with another.

Clearly, Randy Kuhl needs to go, just based on his opposition to scientific research. If Massa turns out to be anti-science from the other direction (which I think is very unlikely) we'll just have to deal with that when the time comes.

So anybody in New York get out there and give Ramesh Padman a hand next time and support Eric Massa.

Bravo Ramesh Padman!

My boyfriend and I met three years ago on herpes dating site so we discovered we are +ve from the beginning of our relationship, that we both had genital herpes. My first outbreak was the ABSOLUTE worst experience, I was so sick. We suffered for one year plus, had constant outbreaks and then finally we decided to both respectively take Dr Utu African Traditional Herbs as advised by friends. His herb is Not much bitter or sour taste.
Dosage two times daily every day for four weeks, and honest to goodness it was a miraculous herbs. We were on it for not more than two weeks when we noticed total change. 'couldn't wait for four weeks. It was third week and five days we used the herbs. Then we went for test and was already hsv2 negative, the both of us. Neither of us have had any lesion, outbreak or symptoms till date.
