What's the point?
Has any breakthroughs of any kind happened because of folding?
Seems like a feel good -zero real effects kind of thing.
My relatives keep dying of cancer however.
I know ...Someday. Right? Blah blah blah.
Show me some results.

1 result that I know of. We've helped contribute to global warming by running lots of old and inefficient hardware at 100% for years.
