A baby born with HIV appears to have been cured, scientists announced Sunday, describing the case of a child from Mississippi who's now 2 ½ and has been off medication for about a year with no signs of infection.

Hurray! Let's see how long until oddball religious parents try to neglect treatment to their children on the grounds of "taking responsibility for their actions," like when some really oddball Evangelical parents try to deny their children vaccinations for ailments that are spread sexually because they think it "promotes promiscuity."

Yes, yes, youth is wasted on the young. And so is accumulated experience wasted on the old, the positives of modernism wasted on moderns, the beauty of Christianity wasted on Christians, the utility of scholarship wasted on scholars, and on and on.

If this was a thread about a miracle-working icon which cured a baby it'd be to 3 pages by now. Humans are worth less when icons aren't involved though.

Just saw this on youtube. Pretty awesome news, but apparently it's only "functionally cured" - meaning it may be detectable in certain other tests. Still great progress though.
