Asking the Right Questions

"Most of of our so-called reasoning consists in
finding arguments for going on believing as we already do." 

James Harvey Robinson

"The problems that exist in the world today cannot be solved by
the level of thinking that created them."

Albert Einstein

It has occurred to me that I am still not asking the right questions in
my quest for a cure so here is another attempt that can link to the
research area and hopefully spawn some new thinking.

  1. From a biochemical and cellular point of view, what is causing our
    bone marrow to create/produce "damaged" blood cells and how
    can this phenomena be corrected?
  2. What is causing my immune system to destroy these partially damaged
  3. What would happen if they were allowed to live?
  4. What role, if any, does genetics play in the process and would it do
    any good to alter our genetic code?
  5. What exactly is happening with CD34 cells marking, amino acids (cystine,
    threonine, arginine) and proteins.  Do the supplements I take
    really do any good>
  6. Is there a role for homeopathy in curing this illness?
