AIDS Versus LEUKEMIA

Some years ago I read an article by a health professional which stated that leukemia was a cure looking for a disease, this illness produces the vast amount of white blood cells who have no one to fight and consequently attack the host causing in many cases death.

AIDS/HIV is a disease that destroys the immune system, killing white blood cells making people liable to catch other illnesses weakening the body until it is too weak to fight.

These two illnesses are at opposite ends of a similar disease, now I am not an expert and make no claims but doesn’t common sense say that surely one of these diseases will affect the other, if cells from one person was implanted into someone with the other illness then  it must have a chance of fighting it.

I may be barking up the wrong tree but are  pharmaceutical companies and medical professionals more interested in promoting drugs than finding a cure, whatever the reason surely these two diseases need to be looked at to see if they have enough in common to bring about  a cure for both.

About michaeldouglasbosc

I am retired and live with my wife on a small olive finca in the middle of a forest in the mountains of Spain in Catalonya. I served 9years in the armed services, am an engineer and because of my love of navy sailing ships a naval historian of the 1700-1800's, plus the author of 10 books. When I retired I started writing adult books my first being A Soldiers Wind. Then came Stanley's story again adult books such was his life. Another book on life in the 1950's this very much an adult book. I have now returned to my love of the sea and my latest navy book 'A Plymouth Story' follows the life of Dr James Blackstock. But Clearing In The Forest is an historical fantasy set in the middle ages at the end of King Johns reign. All the books are published on Kindle and Create a Space in paperback. I have worked all my life and for relaxation I sailed a coastal yacht for many years, but deep inside me was a writer waiting to get out. So when I retired I started writing I find story telling both relaxing and - for me - a pleasure.
