I wondered what happened with the Phase II results… I hope that there will be a report on the original participants soon. I could not agree more that true unification, where both sides realize the assets of the other, would be a beautiful thing. The assumption that –“of course”– North Koreans will want to be in South Korea ignores the question of why some return to their native country. The solution to the modern rat race of South Korea (so much worse than most of us in the US might realize) could well be answered by their Northern counterparts who actually take the time and have the opportunity to see the stars at night.
This is truly fascinating, and makes me wonder why more scientists have not looked at this cohort. The lack of availability of Western Medicine, and people resorting to ‘Traditional Medicine” makes it a good area for study. i found it interesting that the NK government provides Acupuncture, a scientific study there can show it’s effectiveness or lack of it. The US is forcing the poor and low income population to seek out these same kinds of remedies, adding to the death rate. The effects of starvation and deprivation on Epigentics, could be another area of study. The findings here must not be popular or they would be trumpeted by the US media. The idea of the “Marketplace” one that is being promoted in the US, as an affordable alternative can be evaluated too. It looks like the Traditional Medicine has not improved longevity, or counteracted the effects of no healthcare, or healthcare so limited, it is barely recognizable.
I simply wished to thank you so much again. I’m not certain the things I could possibly have created in the absence of the entire tips shared by you
concerning my situation. It seemed to be a real daunting difficulty for me,
but witnessing a skilled avenue you handled it took me to cry for contentment.
I will be thankful for this assistance and even hope you recognize what an amazing job you
happen to be getting into instructing some other people all through your webpage.
More than likely you haven’t got to know any of us.
This is a well written article from a different perspective. You can get an idea of the problems of unification if you look to the beginning of East-West Germany after the wall came down in 1989.
Wow! Reading on the internet, u often have to give up good spelling, intellectual subjects, deep thinking, etc. It was SUCH A PLEASURE to read an article so well put together, and so comprehensive! It never occured to me that bringing the north and south together could be so difficult and could involve so much. As someone else mentioned, the more time goes on, and the more the two sides are different than similar, it seems the harder reunification will be! Rather than the northerners just having an accent, they may eventually speak an entirely different language! Coming together needs to happen sooner rather than later. Fantastic read! Thank u!
Sara Talpos, you did very fine work on this article. I read every word with admiration for your writing skills.
Only wanna remark that you have a very nice web site, I love the design and style it really stands out.
Hiya, I’m really glad I have found this information. Nowadays bloggers publish just about gossips and web and this is really frustrating.
A good site with exciting content, that’s what I need.
Thank you for keeping this site, I will be visiting it.
Do you do newsletters? Can not find it.
A very well-written, informative article. Thank you for your effort.
With the coming war they are certainly going to need good health care!
Really interesting read. As time goes on and new generations of South Koreans become more detached to relatives they may have in the North, I think reunification becomes increasingly less likely.
That said, such a reunification will no doubt be a monstrous economic burden on the population in the South. There’s a need for medical care, basic education, social supports, food, infrastructure.
Very interesting to see the kind of data medical researchers are able to extract from defectors though. Provides a glimpse into what might be needed if the peninsula does one day come together.
Fantastic article! There are so many different problems with uniting the two countries. I never thought about the medical or education angle of it.
Excellent article. Thank you.
Thank you for this very interesting and well-written article!
I concur. It is such a joy to read a really well put together article like this. I never comment on articles, but I wanted the author to know how much I enjoyed.
