The common cold is something that effects everyone. It doesn't target just certian people. Scientist have come a long way and have been able to catagorize common weaknesses of 99 strains of the cold virus. The scientist looked at the 7000 chemical units of the cold and were able to put the strains into a family tree and compare what the differences and similarities were. They hope with this new information they will be able to find effect treatments for the cold which will not only help cold sufferers but also many people diagnosed with asthma.
I think that if they found a cure for the common cold that it would benifit many people, but also leave many people without jobs. This can cause contraversial and economic problems.
