Could Engineered Bacteria Implanted into Human Skin Produce Insulin?

Microscopic organisms can do amazing stuff. Yeast is instrumental in baking bread and brewing beer. Bacteria make yogurt. And now, thanks to synthetic biology, they might be the key that unlocks a revolutionary treatment for type 1 diabetes.

“Bacteria are excellent at doing things, and we understand these things,” says Dr. Yo Suzuki, a synthetic biologist at the J. Craig Venter Institute. “And one of those things we are exploring is if we can get bacteria to produce insulin.”

Wild new microchip tech could grow brain cells on your skin

A simple zap from a small chip could be enough to reprogram skin cells to perform other valuable functions, like carrying blood or even helping you think.

Researchers demonstrate a process known as tissue nanotransfection (TNT). When it comes to healing, this TNT is the bomb. The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center

It's usually bad news to have something growing on your skin, but new technology uses that all important layer as a sort of garden to "grow" whatever types of cells your body might need to treat an injury or disease, be it in a limb or even the brain.

New Smart Meters and 5G Technologies Can Be Used to Intercept All of Your Private Data

by John P. Thomas Health Impact News

Will smart meters and 5G cellular services become a threat to the security of people’s computers and smart phones? Breaches in security from these new microwave technologies are quite possible. Let’s take a look at how it could happen.

World’s first non-battery cell phone “harvests” ambient radio waves to power itself

A team of computer scientists and electrical engineers at the University of Washington have designed and unveiled the world’s first battery-free mobile phone that makes use of ambient radio waves or light to function. The phone was touted to “harvest” a few microwatts of power from the said sources to send and receive calls. The team even reported placing Skype calls using the battery-free phone, which demonstrated that it can be used to receive and transmit speech and communicate with a base station. The phone was made of commercial, off-the-shelf components.

Digital Heroin: Screens Are Turning Kids into Junkies

Are iPads, smartphones and Xboxes a form of digital drug? Recent brain imaging research is showing that they affect the brain’s frontal cortex exactly like cocaine.

The frontal cortex controls executive functioning, including impulse control. Technology is so hyper-arousing that it raises dopamine levels — the feel-good neurotransmitter most involved in the addiction dynamic — as much as sex.

Apple set to destroy reality and ensnare “tech hipsters” into augmented worlds that disconnect people from reality

Just like Eve who was lured into taking a bite out of the forbidden apple in the Garden of Eden, many people today are enamored with the idea of chomping down on anything that tech giant Apple throws their way. This includes so-called “next level” technologies like the one the Apple is currently working on and soon to unveil, known as “augmented reality.” A.R. will reportedly allow users to basically live in a fake world filled with superimposed images of things that don’t actually exist.

Cell Phone Radiation Is Higher Than Manufacturers Claim

The Environmental Health Trust published “Cell Phone Radiation Scandal: More Exposure Than Manufacturers Claim ‘PhoneGate' In France, government data release reveals 9 out of 10 phones tested exceed regulatory limits” [1].

The French ANFR published online on June 1, 2017, a listing of cell phone data “details of make, model and test results for each cell phone that was tested, after months of legal action by French physician Dr. Marc Arazi.”

10 ways the iPhone changed everything

The world is a different place a decade after Apple introduced its popular smartphone -- in both good and bad ways.

Ten years ago, Nokia was the world's largest phone maker. Microsoft was gearing up to launch Windows Vista. And the best new products at CES included a wireless TV and an MP3 player that streamed internet radio.

Life on Line

It was not so long ago that lovers and business partners separated by hundreds if not thousands of miles only had the Pony Express to meet the need for communication. Now we have the Internet. The Internet allows us to pursue our passions in life. Certainly, it makes gathering information easier and allows us to follow people who share our passions.

Why Apple dumbs down your smartphone

As Apple advances the medical promise of its watch and smartphones, it has also made clear that its foremost aim is to steer clear of Food and Drug Administration regulation. Many assert that this imperative has rendered the health features in its sensor-laden watch underwhelming. Apple didn’t want to cross the lines that would class its new watch as a “medical device” in the eyes of regulators.
