How is freedom of speech liberal?2003-03-26 13:33:34 by murple
Freedom of speech is guaranteed by the constitution. it's the first amendment. you can't get anymore fundamentally american than that.
what do you mean censorship? when have you ever seen anything more than a tit on american TV? there's full frontal nudity in europe, and it bothers no one.
funding education is not a liberal concept. neither is health care. in fact, i'd go as far to say that even socialism is conservative, being how long it's already been established (in other countries). medical care for all? that sounds like a humanitarian concern to me. perhaps even the very foundation of a society

..lack of education/understanding of HCV (Hep C)2006-02-19 07:12:13 by t_buzz
You're correct. Current estimates: 5-8M people in the US have HCV (estimated 90,000 in CT), and estimated 280M worldwide.
By 2014, estimates predict more people will have HCV than HIV. Right now, for every 1 individual that has HIV, 5 individuals have HCV.
The challenge with diagnosing HCV is that it can lay dormant for 10-30 years and the majority of Primary Care Providers are not educated on how to properly diagnose.
>HCV (Hep C) is Not a STD - (Sony's 2005 movie 'Bewitched' incorrectly portrayed HCV as a STD). The American Liver Foundation condemned the movie

5) PETAs president has said that even if animal research resulted in a cure for AIDS, we would be against it. And PETA has repeatedly attacked research foundations like the March of Dimes, the Pediatric AIDS Foundation, and the American Cancer Society, solely because they support animal-based research aimed at curing life-threatening diseases and birth defects. And PETA helped to start and manage a quasi-medical front group, the misnamed Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, to attack medical research head-on.
