Science is zeroing in on a cure for Parkinson’s disease – and it will succeed even more quickly if the Bush school of creativity returns to where it belongs – his church
HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC – June 20 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — The average age of onset of Parkinson’s disease is 60, and over one million people are currently afflicted in the United States. With the baby boomers rapidly approaching their sixties, the growth of Parkinson’s will be debilitating for more and more people.
What has been the response of Evangelical leaders to this rising health care crises? James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family radio show, likens one path to a cure to Nazi experiments on humans in World War II. Richard Land, host of For Faith and Family radio show, attacks well-meaning scientists seeking to cure Parkinson’s disease as barbaric.
In this detailed account of the four competitive tracks to a cure for Parkinson’s disease, Steve Zecola debunks the arguments of the leaders of the Religious Right, and shows that they are simply following the traditional Evangelical tool of sowing discontent to grow membership – for their own good – not society’s.
Zecola provides a blow-by-blow description of the hardships and progress in finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease, and offers a framework to analyze how and when a cure may be found.
“This book is not just for those who are affected in some way by Parkinson’s, but in truth it is for every American who cares if our government, our sciences, our economy and our health are being directed by those who wish to control it all, and control us all, through their narrow-minded evangelism…. The book is written in a straightforward, down to earth voice. This is not a scientific textbook; it is a manuscript about the truth of what is happening all around us. If you want to know the truth, use your voice as a world citizen, and be informed, read this book. I’ve never wanted to shake the hand of an author more in my life.”
