TZM BOINC PROJECT
As part of our continuing campaign to support the eradication of Malaria and other infectious diseases we have now added two more infectious diseases we can help eradicate. Polio and Guinea Worm are two infectious diseases on the verge of eradication. Visit www.tzmboinc.com to find out how you can help our global campaign to eradicate these three horrible diseases. Eradicating these diseases will make the transition to a resource based economic model easier and faster.
Eradication is the reduction of an infectious disease's prevalence in the global host population to zero. It is sometimes confused withelimination, which describes either the reduction of an infectious disease's prevalence in a regional population to zero, or the reduction of the global prevalence to a negligible amount. Further confusion arises from the use of the term eradication to refer to the total removal of a given pathogen from an individual (also known as clearance of an infection), particularly in the context of HIV and certain other viruses where such cures are sought.
Why is The Zeitgeist Movement interested in infectious disease eradication?
Eradication of infectious disease is a priority for the transition. It provides a permanent solution to one of the largest causes of poverty in our global society. It provides large scale free health care by preventing people from ever getting these diseases again. It frees up resources to be redirected in helping other areas of society such as cancer research. In 2012 TZM had 5200 members join the BOINC team and help finish the AQUA@home Quantum Computing project. The Quantum Computing System has already been used to further research in protein folding which affects a number of diseases.
