An interesting article; thanks. I'll be 'watching' and assisting as I am able. I'm not a doctor, nor in the medical profession (except in homeopathics I know and use.) I know more than ten times what the general pubic knows; but beyond that, I know friends and associates that know ten times more than I do. -- Charles Edwin Shipp (talk) 18:17, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
QUOTE: " There are thousands upon thousands of unique viruses documented around the world, with new ones being discovered all the time. But they somehow continue to come as a surprise to most people because it wasn’t until the 20th century that we actually started to understand these viruses and come up with solutions to control them." -- Charles Edwin Shipp (talk) 18:34, 31 July 2014 (UTC) -- PS: FYI for additional future editing.
