So this morning, when I saw what appeared to be an interesting New York Times op-ed about rare disease, I rushed to read it.

Storify-VPOnly to find that it was misinformed drivel. But misinformed drivel can perpetuate itself unless our community gives our perspective.

So after engaging on Twitter, I gathered a Storify that summarizes the discussion and shows why these types of articles are dangerous to our cause of finding and funding cures for rare disease. I would love your thoughts in the comments below or on the storify itself.
