Rational Irrationality

From fight aging!:
We humans are downright irrational beings - witness the fact that the possibility of a cure for baldness arising from stem cell based regenerative medicine garners just as much interest as a cure for heart disease using the same technology.
Let me guess: There are a lot more bald people than there are people with heart disease. So, where's the irrationality? Oh, not everyone shares the website's agenda. Tut, tut!
