I know this will please the beekeepers in the crowd!

Science Daily has reported that scientists have isolated the parasite Nosema 
ceranae (Microsporidia) from professional apiaries suffering from honey bee 
colony depopulation syndrome. They then went on to treat the infection with 
complete success.


I'm happy for the bees and the reduced effect this problem will have now on 
agricultural yields but I wish scientists could find a cure to heart disease 
or cancer in this short of a time period.
