First Human Injected with Controversial Genetically Modified Genes

First Human Injected with Controversial Genetically Modified Genes

For the first time in history, a human has been injected with genes edited using the CRISPR-Cas9 method. [1] The experiment took place on 28 October 2016, when a team of Chinese scientists, led by oncologist Lu You at Sichuan University in Chengdu, delivered the genetically modified (GM) cells into a patient with aggressive lung cancer […]

Study Shows Some Genes Activate After Death

Study Shows Some Genes Activate After Death

According to a new study, life does go on after death, at least for your genes. For some animals, their genes may remain turned on for up to four days after death. This discovery can be used to help in preserving organs for transplants and determining when a victim of a murder was killed. Scientists have […]

Gene editing with no boundaries now aggressively pursued by China ... Plants, animals and even soldiers to all become GMOs

Gene editing with no boundaries now aggressively pursued by China … Plants, animals and even soldiers to all become GMOs

American corporations are racing against Chinese companies to develop technology that would allow them to genetically modify everything on the planet, including human beings. As reported by Bloomberg News, Chinese firms are pouring no small amount of resources into building expertise on genomics. Also, the Chinese government is throwing money and resources at another tool, […]

BREAKTHROUGH: The food you eat determines which genes get activated or suppressed, controlling disease vs. health throughout your life

BREAKTHROUGH: The food you eat determines which genes get activated or suppressed, controlling disease vs. health throughout your life

Everyone says you are what you eat, but, for some reason, the majority of the world’s population seems completely oblivious to this fact. Yet pure science and simple experiments have managed to definitively prove what naturopaths have been saying for centuries: What you eat changes you, down to your very DNA. As it turns out, […]

Heredity – Are you doomed to a life with varicose veins?

Heredity – Are you doomed to a life with varicose veins?

As we age we being to wonder what we will grow to look like and how our health will hold up as time goes by. Our older relatives are often the best gage by which to measure ourselves. Our parents being the closest genetic link we often strongly resemble either one or the other or sometimes […]

'Gene drive': Scientists sound alarm over supercharged GM organisms which could spread in the wild and cause environmental disasters

‘Gene drive’: Scientists sound alarm over supercharged GM organisms which could spread in the wild and cause environmental disasters

A powerful new technique for generating “supercharged” genetically modified organisms that can spread rapidly in the wild has caused alarm among scientists who fear that it may be misused, accidentally or deliberately, and cause a health emergency or environmental disaster. The development of so-called “gene drive” technology promises to revolutionize medicine and agriculture because it […]

New GMO "gene drive" technology could be used to unleash the world's most devastating biological weapon

New GMO “gene drive” technology could be used to unleash the world’s most devastating biological weapon

The next generation of genetically engineered life will more than likely possess a novel trait known as “gene drive” that literally spreads gene alterations like a virus within the host population, whether it is a plant or an animal. Many scientists are starting to worry that if it is placed into the wrong hands, the […]

Radiation levels at Fukushima plant increases to 800% of government standard

Radiation levels at Fukushima plant increases to 800% of government standard

Radiation at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant has now exceeded more than eight times the radiation limit set by the Japanese government – presenting new concerns for problems that many say are exacerbating. The largely government-owned Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) admitted that radiation levels had elevated to an estimated 8 millisieverts per year (mSv/y) […]

McDonald's GMO dilemma: why fries are causing such a fuss

McDonald’s GMO dilemma: why fries are causing such a fuss

McDonald’s already sources other food made from genetically engineered crops. Why are GMO critics so concerned that the fast-food chain might buy Simplot’s Innate potato? Photograph: John E Kelly/Getty “Do you want fries with that?” Not if they’re made from genetically engineered potatoes, say activists who oppose GMOs. The advocacy group Food & Water Watch […]

Biotech's Dark Promise: Involuntary Cannibalism for All

Biotech’s Dark Promise: Involuntary Cannibalism for All

” Technological progress is like an axe in the hands of a pathological criminal.” ~ Albert Einstein Whereas the quote above could easily be dismissed as the ‘progress-denying’ sentiment of a disgruntled anti-GMO activist, the fact is that it came from a scientist representing the very epitome of Western rationality and accomplishment. Perhaps Einstein was […]
