I read with some amusement, “We’ll have some science with a side of humility” (Opinions, Feb. 21). Many years ago I read in the newspaper that a chemical found in some types of cheese was effective in fighting cancer, and the highest concentration of this chemical is found in ... drum roll ... Cheez Whiz! Whoever thought Cheez Whiz could be a health food?
More recently, during the Ebola scare, it was reported that one of the ingredients in the trial vaccine was derived from tobacco. Perhaps the year 2173 is already upon us and we should all smoke so that we can build our resistance to Ebola.
