It's good to see a team of scientists at Columbia are working on this...I'm sure they're working in shifts at Norelco as well.

That's a shame......poor kid doesn't know the value of that hair. He gets the gift and wants to give it up. What is this world coming too???

"Pruthviraj has just started the promising treatment, and it's too early to tell its long-term effects, but the doctors are hopeful it will do the trick."

Its interesting how careless everyone is being in terms of his health just so he can look 'normal'. Id be willing to risk my health with risky new treatments for something like, I don't know... a new vital organ.... but not just to stop being hairy.

It kind of rubs me the wrong way when they use the word "cure" in relation to things like this. It opens all sorts of cans of worms.

On another side....here was an amazing article about a child born with 12 fingers and 12 toes..

What's amazing is that all the fingers are FUNCTIONING! The doctor had it right...imagine the pianist the kid could be....

Funny how a kid with Werewolf Syndrome will do anything to be normal, while people with Sideshow Syndrome will do anything to be different from everybody else.

Yours,

The grass is always greener...

It's easy to say that "normalising" these people is a bad thing because they are beautiful and unique, but then we don't know what it's like to live with their differences. Even the case of the six-fingered child which seems like a comparatively minor abnormality that could be a blessing - I bet it also makes life difficult and unpleasant in a variety of other ways.

In an ideal world way where school children don't make fun of the easiest targets, where employers hire people based on who they are rather than what they look like and where no one makes any assumptions about people before they've got to know them then perhaps being different might not be that much of a problem.

Doesn't seem much like this world though.

Isn't that what 12 years of an American public education is for? To 'normalize' us all? Remember how they label us: "consumers." That may be a clue.
Just being snide.
