The video begins humorously as Anthony Carbajal, a photographer, dresses up in a neon bikini top and soaps up a car before being doused with ice water.
My problem with what he says: Pharmaceutical companies.
Fuck Big Pharma, especially with genetic disorders such as ALS. Give my field money! Let Genetics heal you, you idiots!
Sorry, I feel very strongly about the waste of money that is pharmaceutical research on genetic disease.
I have hemophilia which is a genetic disease. Without pharmaceutical research, I’d have to receive routine blood transfusions and risk the contraction of diseases such as HIV/AIDs which there have been cases of prior to not even 10 years before I was born.
I understand the financial difficulties when it comes to a disease as uncommon as ALS. I understand the difficulty of curing/treating a genetic condition. But I don’t like the notion of researching a condition being a “waste of money.” I don’t think think anything spent towards making someone’s life better is a waste of money.
