To be very honest, if I use empirical method of observing the time the pharmaceutical company successful launch a cure, sometimes I felt there won't be a cure till I am in my 70's. When I was in elementary school, we were taught Madame Curie invented radiation and cancer can be cured. Then, a lot of Chinese accupunturists claimed to heal cancer. However, now I am in my late 30's, cancer is still incurable. When Aids just came out, so many tests performed that can stop the activity of the viruses, yet 20 years had passed, the progress is still like this. For Herpes, in the mid 80's, there is increased medical awareness, yet now 20 years passed by, there is still no cure. Moreover, a lot of doctors told me Aids had stolen the show that more people are interested to research for a cure than Herpes.
I am asking everyone to see what they can to do to expedite a cure. Last week, when I read the World Journal, the newspaper reported a scholarship granted to the " New American's " which consists mostly of 25-27 year old Asian immigrants who are currently in graduated study of medicine or chemistry, and I found most of those who got the scholarship concentrated on cure for various kinds of cancer and diabetes. Herpes is not very common among the Chinese that I can say 1 out of 10 have it. Also, most of the women have it at a later stage of 40's, while most claim to contract after divorce and restart dating . So I will be working on increase the awareness among the Chinese, so the young doctors will consider research on Herpes. My hope depends on how well these yearly graduates in the top Medical School's Research are interested in Herpes.
So is there anything you can do to increase the young student to research? Most of the time, if there isn't anything to hit us so hard, we won't pay that much attention. Six of the recipents of the scholarship for " New Americans Scholoarhip " had grandparents died of various kinds of cancer or diabetes that they decided to research on.
I am asking help from anyone from all over the world to increase awareness for a cure. Best Wishes.
