Thank you Rule for posting this. That Dr. Janda is definitely on to something. Vaccinations for obesity, nicotine addiction, heroin/opiate addiction etc.... There has got to be away to get him the money so he can get this stuff through trials. I like how the polio vaccination was brought about. President Roosevelt and the march of dimes. Everyone started sending in their dimes to fund research for the polio vaccination. It seems like addiction treatment centers across the country could focus on raising money and this might could happen with the help of NA, AA. Who knows? If I ever hit the lottery I'll be contacting that good man, Dr. Janda. I hope I'm spelling his name right. Hopefully we are living in a time where there are about to be some more choices out there for people living with addiction. I really enjoyed this. More please. Thanks in advance. Bama girl

U know that sentence about drug addicts not being seen as a good investment and that it's seen as a moral default instead of brain disease....that hit the nail on the head didn't it?!?

Good article!

I did cringe a couple of times when he made comments about getting the money and no one wanting to invest in drug addicts. I was like why not? I may not be word for word because it was way earlier when I watched it, but he said something about the manager/owner of a big company would not be an addict or a tweeker. Yeah, I wish he would have left out those kind of comments but the idea of a vaccination for such things amazed me. Just think of the lives that could be saved if there were vaccinations for nicotine and obesity alone. That's not even counting addicts. I definitely think he is on to something big. Bama girl
