  • A look at Parkinson's disease

    9.0
    This covers all the areas of Parkinson's including how you get it, how to treat it, the politics behind canceling or aiding stem cell research.



    Most of the stuff covered has been covered, but it's nice to get a full report on it. Like for example that Parkinson's is genetic and hereditary.



    The politics is what interested me. The stem cell / Parkinson's disease call is another failure of the Bush administration. Bush decide to limit stem cell research because it crossed a "moral boundary". LMAO



    The contradictions here are huge and laughable. A man with no morals making a decision on morals. Gotta love this despicable evil conservative.



    We hear from people who detested the decision like Michael J. Fox. In the end, it was an informative episode on an ever so important topic.moreless
