Oh come on now Jackal... don't stop taking your xanax yet...
What it means and what Dr. Roses was saying in this speech is that due to genetic differences in people the drug that works on one person may not work
on the next...
Dr Roses is a geneticist and is pushing his valid belief that with further research in genetics theraputic pharmacology would be greatly improved by
attacking illness and disorders at the genetic level.
The speech was not a suicidal ploy at exposing the pharmacuetical industry as a fraud but rather admonishing other researchers to point their research
in this direction to make theraputic pharmacology all the more effective.
I spoke to a good friend who's an MD this morning concerning the "Akansas Flu Deaths" thread and we touched on this too -
he said that 90% of pharmaceuticals are theraputic drugs, and that currently doctors have to use a hit and miss tactic in treating disorders.
If one drug doesn't produce results they change to another until they find one that works with that particular patient.
It seems that Dr. Roses is onto something in his research and that the future looks considerably brighter in theraputic pharmacology thanks to his
push into genetics.
Wow, I sure did write a long post on something that is totally not related to my professional field....
