December End date: Dr Gallo will recruit a specialist to use mathematical and computational analyses to work out the most likely mechanisms that are altered in MND as a result of the mutation. Findings from this project will provide more information on the toxic mechanisms involved in MND and could identify new targets for potential treatments. Dr Alex Whitworth Associated researchers:
Health and Science has moved! You can find new stories here. Many people seem to think it is. In the past five years, companies have submitted more than 27, products to the Non-GMO Projectwhich certifies goods that are free of genetically modified organisms.
Last year, sales of such products nearly tripled. Whole Foods will soon require labels on all GMOs in its stores. Some environmentalists and public interest groups want to go further. Massachusetts could be next.
Will Saletan writes about politics, science, technology, and other stuff for Slate. Hundreds of studies back up that conclusion. But the deeper you dig, the more fraud you find in the case against GMOs.
The people who tell you that Monsanto is hiding the truth are themselves hiding evidence that their own allegations about GMOs are false.
A Slate Plus Special Feature: Second, the central argument of the anti-GMO movement—that prudence and caution are reasons to avoid genetically engineered, or GE, food—is a sham. Activists who tell you to play it safe around GMOs take no such care in evaluating the alternatives.
They denounce proteins in GE crops as toxic, even as they defend drugs, pesticides, and non-GMO crops that are loaded with the same proteins. They portray genetic engineering as chaotic and unpredictable, even when studies indicate that other crop improvement methods, including those favored by the same activists, are more disruptive to plant genomes.
The deeper you dig, the more fraud you find in the case against GMOs. Advertisement Third, there are valid concerns about some aspects of GE agriculture, such as herbicides, monocultures, and patents.
But none of these concerns is fundamentally about genetic engineering. To think clearly about GMOs, you have to distinguish among the applications and focus on the substance of each case.
But come with me, just this once. I want to take you backstage, behind those blanket assurances about the safety of genetic engineering. Papaya image from iStock. Photo illustration by Holly Allen. Ringspot virus, transmitted by insects, was destroying the crop.
Farmers tried everything to stop the virus: But one scientist had a different idea.DIAGNOSTICS ALLERGY & FOOD INTOLERANCE TESTING When talking about a healthy diet it is often overlooked that this is not always a matter of general advice such as "be sure to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables".
What is good and beneficial food for one may not be suitable at all for somebody else. At the Dubai Herbal and Treatment Centre we have many years of experience in diagnosing food.
This project aims to sequence over 1, genomes (a genome represents the total genetic make-up of an individual) utilising the samples already .
A growing body of research is finding a link between sleep disorders and weight gain. And it can be a vicious cycle. Insufficient sleep can lead to weight gain, which can lead to a serious problem called sleep apnea, which produces more sleep deprivation and more packing on of the pounds.

September Ivabradine reportedly improves heart rate variability in MVD-affected dogs with enlargement. In a September article, Thai veterinary researchers (Prapawadee Pirintr, Nakkawee Saengklub, Vudhiporn Limprasutr, Anusak Kijtawornrat [left]) conducted a long term (3 months) study of oral doses of ivabradine in four MVD-affected Beagles with heart enlargement (Stage B2).
