this is an unusual condition, but doctors should be honest with their patients! :(
impressive progress... this data will give a boost to medical research in many areas
fascinating!! this could be quite important. eat your vegetables, dear
hopefully the new strains won't develop even more-damaging ways to compensate for their lack of acid resistance... :-/
