I will admit that I haven't read the article, but it sounds interesting. The only thing that I worry about is viral mutation. We're always dealing with the havoc that mutating virii cause...more drug-resistant strains of relatively common diseases, etc. I just hope that there wouldn't be potential for the "safe" virus to mutate into some sort of pandemic. Then again, I'm by no means an expert..or even halfway knowledgeable.
