We still cannot cure viral infections at all. There is a great deal of promise being shown by various researchers and scientists but still no cure. We can prevent them through vaccines and we can treat the symptoms but we cannot cure them. Hopefully if the promise being talked about in many fields pans out we will start to see real progess made in curing viral infections within the next few decades.
Like I said others must not have been taught this basic stuff or just never paid attention.
The article is also right about GMOs. The various forms of opposition to GMO foods is just never based on any truth or accuracy. IF you wish to avoid them and eat organic fine go right ahead. But the fact is the reasoning is usually false and also there really are not any truly organic crops. The vast majority of organic foods are still just GMO crops grown by corporate farms which simply charges more for stuff which does not taste as good.
