So seatbelts are the real reason people die from cancer? eek.gif

Its like any other interest, and it would be great if Folding actually provided treatments for certain illnesses...

Yes it uses a fair bit of electricty, but thats for each individual to decide for themselves if its worth the additional costs...

In the end it just is a type of research, whether it provides viable results is something we can only hope for...

All research is questioned in the beginning, but it has given Humankind many things, if we actually need these things on not is debatable.

I fold because I can.

No evidence of curing cancer with folding.
Your PC uses power right?

There is evidence of lung cancer in uranium mine workers and people living in surrounding areas though.

Also applies to coal power plants and their pollution.

So you think you are saving people from cancer with folding whilst contributing to the deaths of your fellow countrymen.

Not to mention environmental damage.

A PC at full load uses a lot of power.

If everyone on the planet had a PC folding and another pc gaming we would prob all be dead from the greenhouse effect and increased temperatures.
(In which a cure for any sort of cancer would be USELESS)

Hey if you can run it off solar or something then go for it i say!

I believe intentions of folding good, people get carried away with how much they are actually helping though and forget the cons............

Folding doesn't help with cancer. It's one of the gripes I have, honestly, when people talk about folding.

That isn't to say however that folding is useless. Right now we have extremely limited models when it comes to protein folding. The information gathered can then be extrapolated into cures for diseases resulting from protein misfolding. When a protein misfolds, not only does it misfold itself, but it somehow avoids protease defenses and causes other proteins to misfold and form aggregates as well. This is eventually what leads to diseases like Alzheimer's.

There has already been many research papers published using data from F@H. This doesn't sound impressive to non-academics, but the vast majority of scientific contributions were originally published in research papers just like those. F@H fulfills a dire need to better understand protein folding, has huge potentials in the field of TSEs, and has helped make great strides in the field.

Additionally, it also takes lots of power to run research labs as well. The incubator I grow my cell cultures in, the gasoline used to transport all my supplies, the ventilation hood that I use to safely perform in vitro procedures, the lights and air circulation systems used for the building, the computer I use to crunch numbers, the machines I use to perform assays, the freezer used to store my gels and growth medium in the cancer research lab I work in all take up power and all add to pollution. I definitely dislike it, and I definitely think it's an ugly truth, but are you really willing to go so far and say that we should stop research entirely because of this? Honestly, the power used to fold is extremely little compared to how much it takes to run a properly maintained, safe research institute.

So, in short, F@H is definitely useful.
