What about the significant health burden to the adult population? For many of us thatís when this disease really rears its ugly head. Then surgery becomes far more costly, not to mention all the associated expenses of long recuperative care, employer short and long-term disability payments and social security disability income for those who can no longer work.

This is great news for future generations who hopefully will be spared from the mental and physical pain of this hideous disease.
