Mice! who doesn't hate them?
This discovery in my opinion its a serious advance in science, even though the scares and screems that can cause this little creature are absolutely horrible. If you find yourself in the night, like per example if you going to the bathroom in the middle of the night, the great advantage is that if you want to kill the little F&%$! you can find him rapidly armed with a broom.
Not only this discovery can help you during the night, but like the article said, it can safe you from darkness.
"As such, it offers both a powerful new tool in cancer and cardiovascular research, as well as the potential to ultimately control complex processes such as nerve growth"
Sometimes I ask myself, why do we blame so much this little creature when they help us discover new things in medecine? Our ignorance sometimes clouds our common sense and makes us think the worst scenarios with this little creatures. But precisely the horrible scenarios is what perhaps makes researchers to find new answers for new or incurable diseases.
