Scientists Edit Embryos’ Genes to Study Early Human Development

September 21st, 2017

Via: Reuters: British scientists have used a genome editing tool known as CRISPR/Cas9 to knock out a gene in embryos just a few days old, testing the technique’s ability to decipher key gene functions in early human development. The researchers said their experiments, using a technology that is the subject of fierce international debate because […]

Bill Gates and Richard Branson Back Startup That Grows ‘Clean Meat’

August 23rd, 2017

haha oh sure! Via: Bloomberg: Cargill Inc., one of the largest global agricultural companies, has joined Bill Gates and other business giants to invest in a nascent technology to make meat from self-producing animal cells amid rising consumer demand for protein that’s less reliant on feed, land and water. Memphis Meats, which produces beef, chicken […]

Magneto-Thermal Genetic Deep Brain Stimulation of Motor Behaviors in Awake, Freely Moving Mice

August 21st, 2017

Via: eLIFE: Establishing how neurocircuit activation causes particular behaviors requires modulating the activity of specific neurons. Here, we demonstrate that magnetothermal genetic stimulation provides tetherless deep brain activation sufficient to evoke motor behavior in awake mice. The approach uses alternating magnetic fields to heat superparamagnetic nanoparticles on the neuronal membrane. Neurons heat-sensitized by expressing TRPV1 […]

Monsanto Was Its Own Ghostwriter for Some Safety Reviews

Via: Bloomberg: Academic papers vindicating its Roundup herbicide were written with the help of its employees.

The Strange Case of Wyndham Lathem, Andrew Warren and Trenton James Cornell-Duranleau

August 8th, 2017

Update: Latham Was Denied Security Clearance to Work in France I wonder if French intelligence suspected or knew that he was contracting for U.S. DoD or intel agencies… This article suggest that, “It may have been due to internal politics at the institution.” Although, if it was some sort of hissy fit at the institution […]

How Governments, Food Companies, Big Pharma, Media and Healthcare Operators Keep Us Fat and Sick

July 27th, 2017

If you thought the Military Industrial Complex was something… Via: The Drs. Wolfson: These numbers clearly reveal a U.S. economy totally dependent on the healthcare system. Were the need for healthcare to cease, or be reduced dramatically, the U.S. economy would be in crisis of unprecedented proportions. So, what has the government been doing to […]

First Human Embryos Edited in U.S.

July 27th, 2017

Via: MIT Technology Review: The first known attempt at creating genetically modified human embryos in the United States has been carried out by a team of researchers in Portland, Oregon, Technology Review has learned. The effort, led by Shoukhrat Mitalipov of Oregon Health and Science University, involved changing the DNA of a large number of […]

Genetically-Modified Cyborg Dragonfly Drone

July 10th, 2017

Via: Popular Mechanics: DragonflEye was created by genetically modifying regular dragonflies with “steering neurons” in the insect’s spinal cord, which are light sensitive. Tiny, fiber-optic-like structures in the dragonfly’s eyes send pulses of light to their brains, functionally controlling where the insect flies via remote control. The dragonfly also carries a miniature “backpack” with sensors […]

California: Glyphosate Will Be Added to List of Chemicals Known to Cause Cancer

June 27th, 2017

Via: Reuters: Glyphosate, an herbicide and the active ingredient in Monsanto Co’s (MON.N) popular Roundup weed killer, will be added to California’s list of chemicals known to cause cancer effective July 7, the state’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) said on Monday. Monsanto vowed to continue its legal fight against the designation, required […]
