Question of the Week #5

If a new medicine were developed that would cure arthritis but cause a fatal reaction in 1 percent to those who took it, would you want it to be released to the public?

I don’t think I would, because a fatal reaction to a few people seems a lot for the greater good. If they could develop it further to make it so it doesn’t cause such a reaction, then I might consider it. Otherwise I wouldn’t want to risk it. Arthritis is painful but the pain of death seems much more risky to me.

That’s my thoughts on that.
