Do you think that we, human beings, are the most dominant species on the Earth?
I really don't think so. I believe that microscopic life forms, especially the viral ones are the most powerful species around the world.
National Center for Health Statistics announced the top 10 causes of death in United States by 2006 as:
According to the some articles in the book, Next Fifty Years, by John Brockman, different sorts of long running viral infections cause most of the cancer types, and some diseases of those we know no proven cause yet, like Alzheimer, MS etc.
Therefore, I hate those God damn micro life forms. They're killing us cruelly since the beginning of time and we cannot fight against them in a sufficient way. Remember tuberculosis, black death, AIDS, SARS, ebola, Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever (CCHF), fatal influenza forms appearing annually in the recent years. What are we doing about them? We have beaten the historic forms of some viruses but we are very vulnerable to the evolved viral forms.
Come on doctors, work harder! Save us!
Nowadays, beautiful Charlize Theron is striving to beat the viral infection in her stomach. As far as I know, she spent 4-5 days in the intensive care unit of Cedars-Sinai Hospital, Los Angeles.
I am trying the understand the game of evolution... [Possibly, homo sapiens can be considered as the viruses of the universe, if we look at the scene from an objective macro perspective. But I don't want to sheer this way now...] What is the aim of this kind of a natural selection? One ugly ribonucleic acid chain (RNA) covered by a protein shell is trying to conquer one of the most beautiful organisms of the world: Charlize Theron.
It is insane! Really unfair.
Pray for Ms. Theron, my friends, we are not ready to lose her yet!
Get up girl! Get up and smile us again.
