This phrase:" 'paradigm shift' to describe revolutionary changes in scientific fields" needs to be explained more carefully. Till what degree is a change considered a "paradigm shift"? What is considered a revolutionary change? Nowadays AIDS ain't cured but instead of dying in months you die in decades. Cancer is not cured in a general sense but a good amount of cancers, specially in early stages can be cured...These aren't absolute changes, or paradigm shifts but certainly more important than most issues that can come to your mind...
