New Cure for the Common Cold?

I was recently sent an article found in Wikinews regarding a new drug that could “treat virtually all viral infections.”

“The new drug, known as DRACO (double-stranded RNA activated caspase oligomerizer), is able to discriminate between healthy cells and those infected by viruses.” And “it signals the infected cells to die.”

Now, I don’t know if the medical world has really come across a cure or not but I wonder if somehow we could find a way to use the same principle in life, i.e. discriminate between healthy people and those “infected” by bad manners, contagious diseases or the person who is hard to get along with. And, if they could “die” in the spiritual sense, that would be great too.

Truth be told though, sometimes I feel like I’m one of the infected people who needs to “die.”

  1. What if too many of your cells were infected, and the new medication did you in? Infected cells and “infected” people don’t need to dye. They just need an antidote for the infection.
