Thanks for the article - it's always good to see progress made against painful and debilitating diseases.  However, shouldn't you have made a comment or two about the article, your position, etc, instead of just leaving a plain link in the post?

LOL.  Is there a "position" on the topic.  Is PETA  police protesting for the worms? Tongue (no, that's not an exageration: I once read in their periodical about ways of de-fleaing your dog that doesn't kill the feas.  Great, where do they go? Roll Eyes).

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Well, one never knows if a person will feel that the worms deserve more rights than, say, a person who hasn't left the womb yet... I only asked my question since a "naked" link is a bit strange to see around here - usually there is at least a portion or summary of the article, a comment or two - something to brighten the landscape.

Cleveland, I think it's quite wonderful! Grin
I'd still like to study the condition, but the world will be happier without that sickness, and even without that species of worm! I'd personally be estatic to see agents of disease completely eradicated, such as the tsetse fly, the sand fly and such.

LOL, Ialmisry! PETA can suck my big toe! They're such hypocrites! They mouth off about shelters killing dogs and cats, but they do it themselves! They can be great comic relief, though...LOL, so God bless 'em. Cheesy
I'm just waiting for the day they claim bacteria and viruses have feelings. That might be the day I'll die of laughter. Tongue
