US corporations also pay some of the highest taxes in the world, which is why many of them are moving overseas.
More accurately, the US has one of the highest nominal corporate tax rates in the world, which is why US corporations work so hard to exploit (and lobby to create) the many loopholes in the system. The US corporate tax system is an excellent example of a case where it would be far better to lower the tax rate and broaden the tax base by eliminating loopholes.
The treatment was done 13 years ago, I didn't think they were gene editing back then so I assume they come from donors? Does that mean they require immunosuppressant drugs?
They do come from donors, and immunosuppressive drugs are not required. Transplants of tissue from living donors like bone marrow is very different from tissue from deceased donors like hearts and lungs. With transplants from deceased donors, the pool of donors is small and there's very little time to choose a recipient before the organ goes bad. In practice, that means it isn't always a very good tissue match, and it's usually necessary to give the recipient immunosuppressive drugs to avoid rejection.
With a transplant from a live donor, the pool of donors is larger- much larger in the case of hematopoetic stem cells or bone marrow, which grow back completely- and the tissue will keep indefinitely. That gives doctors plenty of time to search for the closest possible tissue type match, so the recipient and donor are generally perfect or nearly perfect matches. They won't even try to do the transplant unless there's a very close match.
All of the studies purporting to show cancer risk from cellphones are BS. How do we know? Because cellphone use has skyrocketed worldwide in the past 20-30 years with no corresponding increase in brain cancer in humans. It's not a perfectly designed study, but I'm going to trust the natural experiment that's been performed on billions of humans over decades of time rather than the lab experiment that's been carried out on a handful of rats for a much shorter time.

>Do you believe rehabilitation is impossible or do you want revenge?
I don't believe that someone who commits mass murder can be rehabilitated, no. It isn't about revenge; it's about public safety.
Someone once pointed out that hoping a rapist gets raped in prison isn't a victory for his victim(s), because it somehow gives him what he had coming to him, but it's actually a victory for rape and violence. I wish I could remember who said that, because they are right. The score doesn't go Rapist: 1 World: 1. It goes Rape: 2.
What this man did is unspeakable, and he absolutely deserves to spend the rest of his life in prison. If he needs to be kept away from other prisoners as a safety issue, there are ways to do that without keeping him in solitary confinement, which has been shown conclusively to be profoundly cruel and harmful.
Putting him in solitary confinement, as a punitive measure, is not a victory for the good people in the world. It's a victory for inhumane treatment of human beings. This ruling is, in my opinion, very good and very strong for human rights, *precisely* because it was brought by such a despicable and horrible person. It affirms that all of us have basic human rights, even the absolute worst of us on this planet.
Never trust anyone who says money is no object.
