are we spending enough on aids?
Figures in billions of dollars
“We’re dying not only because of Aids but because of government neglect,” activists charged on “Donahue” last February. In fact, the government’s response to the Aids outbreak is unprecedented. Since 1981, when the disease was first identified, federal funding for Aids research and prevention has totaled more than $ 4.7 billion. That’s more than for any single disease, including cancer, and more than for heart disease, stroke, hypertension and diabetes combined – though those afﬂictions claim about 35 times as many U.S. lives as Aids. Some still say we’re spending too little on Aids; others say too much. Examine the figures for Public Health Service funding above and decide for yourself if the government is ignoring this dread disease.

Substantivos e o Caso Genitivo: PUCPR–2010
Polio sufferer wins $22.5 million lawsuit
A man from Staten Island, New York, has won a lawsuit after he contracted polio 30 years ago from his daughter’s oral vaccination. Dominick Tenuto, 61, won $22.5 million from Lederle Laboratories who manufactured “Orimune”, a polio vaccine that was given to Tenuto’s 5-month-old daughter, Diana, in May 1979.
The following month, Tenuto, who was a supervisor for a Wall Street securities firm, contracted polio and lost the use of his legs. He claimed that the vaccine, which contained a live virus, passed through his daughter’s body and she excreted it. As a result, he is now in a wheelchair.
After the ruling, Tenuto said: “I’ve got some measure of relief that the truth finally was told in an open court of law.” He said of the money that, “it doesn’t change the way I live my life. It’s still going to be hard.”
Tenuto had also tried to sue the state of the late paediatrician Dr. Leroy Schwartz, but only Lederle was held liable. Lederle is planning to appeal.
