Awesome. Now other things that can kill you and don't go away.
This always makes me wonder; almost as if the cosmic design to shrink our numbers involves disease to a large part -- AIDS, etc. It's relatively easy to pass on, and highly prevalent.
The nature of nature, is to distribute life. Energy is a (somewhat) constant, and as living beings, we all have a fixed amount of energy that we can use/produce, so the natural order is to distribute that energy.
Not all life, is good.
Therefore, yes, it is natures way of keeping our numbers down. Survival of the fittest (smartest, or most intelligent)
