Nobel would be proud of this medicine prize

Parasitologists from Ireland, China and Japan were named the winners of this year's Nobel Prize for Medicine on Monday. The liberal daily Gazeta Wyborcza welcomes the Committee's decision: "This fulfills the wishes of Alfred Nobel, who wanted the prize to honour work that truly benefits humanity. And what could be more useful than a drug that cuts the number of malaria deaths by half? ... True, the average Pole has no fear of illnesses that are caused by parasites and knows practically nothing about them. But such diseases are part of daily life in many places in the world, although predominantly in the poorest countries. The time has come once again to point out that we are not the centre of the universe. The really big problems are not here, but elsewhere."
