Exposure to air pollution from diesel fumes during the second trimester of pregnancy may have a detrimental effect on the DNA of unborn children, according to a study published in the journal JAMA Pediatrics.
For many cities, air quality is a major public health concern — and new research has shown that it’s not just exhaust fumes people need to be worried about.
The hot new way to find love is a cheek swab. Just load up a stick with your saliva and send it in for testing to Pheramor, a new dating app that analyzes your DNA and matches you with potential partners.
Space exploration is a small part let’s see if we can do this, and a large part let’s find out what we learn if we do this and that.
White men who exercise at high levels are 86 percent more likely than people who exercise at low levels to experience a buildup of plaque in the heart arteries by middle age, a new study suggests. Led by researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago and Kaiser Permanente, the study looked at the physical activity trajectories of 3,175 black and white participants in the multicenter, community-based, longitudinal cohort CARDIA study, and assessed the presence of coronary artery calcification, or CAC, among participants.
“Of these were the isles of the nations divided in their lands, every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.” Genesis 10:5 (The Israel Bible™)
An Egyptian sarcophagus from 400 BC shows Anubis, supervisor of the mummification process. (Wikimedia Commons) In a scientific first, DNA taken from Egyptian mummies has been decoded, producing unexpected results about the true origins of the Egyptian people. These results confirm a controversial theory that traces the First Egyptian Dynasty back to Biblical Ham, as described in the Book of Genesis.
Here's proof of how far we've come in science - in a world-first, researchers have recorded up-close footage of a single DNA molecule replicating itself, and it's raising questions about how we assumed the process played out.
The real-time footage has revealed that this fundamental part of life incorporates an unexpected amount of 'randomness', and it could force a major rethink into how genetic replication occurs without mutations.
Aside from the looming threat of the loss of medical freedom in regards to vaccination, what should truly frighten parents is the fact that there has never been a single safety study conducted on the inter-relationship between multiple vaccines, nor has there ever been a single safety study as far as the combination of ingredients in the vaccines themselves.
A new bill, H.R. 1313, moving through Congress would allow companies to require employees to undergo genetic testing and enroll in a mandatory vaccine program or risk losing their job. Today, laws including the 2008 Genetic Privacy and Nondiscrimination Act (known as GINA) prohibits giving employers such power over their employees.
Some human beings think that they are close to achieving the power of God, and widespread fear exists that even this degree of power will corrupt.
Researchers at London's Francis Crick Institute have been given the green light to experiment with and modify human embryos in the same controversial fashion that giant dogs and mini pet pigs have been created in laboratories.
Known as Clustered Regularly Interspaced Palindromic Repeats (CRISPR), the technology strategically identifies specific genes, alters them and changes a living organism's DNA.
