Comment 8 by billzfantazy :

I read this recently, which was critical of the hype about epigenetics and included a comment by the Dawk himself! (cultural ref: the IT crowd for dyslexics) So does RD think the EU is wasting its money? I'd be interested to know.

I'd just like to point out that if you think it would be good to understand stem cells and cancer (in this particular project leukemia would be relevant for example), then no, the EU is not wasting the money.

So please, everyone, don't call yourself "sceptical" of epigenetics if you support stem cells research and cancer research. You would be contradicting yourself.
