It’s always gratifying to blog about advances in the exciting medical field. Unlike so many other fields you could have chosen to work in, medicine offers regular innovations that have dramatically positive consequences for humanity. Take the case of the woman whose face was ripped off by an angry chimpanzee but this week unveiled the new face that doctors had successfully transplanted from a donor. Breathtaking medical science at work no?
Also of incredible value is a new treatment revealed in the AP story here and still very much in the experimental phase, which seems to be highly effective at killing leukemia. The implications for all of humanity are significant if this cure is validated and distributed to cancer patients worldwide. Sorry, but you’re just not going to be a part of any earth-shattering advances working at Speedy-Lube or McDougal’s Hamburger Hut. (Both honorable jobs, just not fertile grounds for innovation.)
