Gymnema Sylvestre to Treat Diabetes - Reduce Sugar

Gimnema
A new treatment to reduce the number of obese people is to be instigation world wide. Gymnema Sylvestre is a woody plant. Acids in the extract from it are similar to sweet detectors on the tongue. They block these taste buds. There is also research into using the herb for diabetes control.

Jurassic Piranha Fossil is Earliest Flesh-Cutting Fish

The fossil of a piranha-like jurassic fish shows a flesh-slicing eating ability. The specimen was the first bony fish to have this capacity. Teeth were much like the South American piranha. However, the ancient creature lived in the ocean not in freshwater. People eat the piranha and say it tastes like other fish.

Longevity Will Require Genetic Manipulation and Drug Therapy.

It may sound good to extend life by gene manipulation But it will be complex and expensive. Taxpayers will not want to pay for it. It will be okay for the wealthy. The ordinary person will lose. There will be a tax burden to provide for aged care. It could be a new industry. We do not really need it.

Only 10 Percent of Human Genes are Researched

Much is said about advances in gene research. Unfortunately, most is just a rehash of old stuff. For a decade we have been going nowhere. Only 10 percent of human genes are studied.

Scientists Find Three Viruses to Control Cane Toads

Cane toads are a pest in Australia. They were introduced to kill beetles attacking sugar cane. Unfortunately, they were not interested in the beetle. They ate just about everything else. Native species have been greatly depopulated. Now, their DNA has been sequences. Furthermore, three viruses that destroy only cane toads have been identified.

Lithium Battery Will be Superseded by the Proton Flow Type


Lost handwriting skills
Lithium (and cobalt/graphite/nickel/manganese) cells supplanted lead acid as the principal battery science basically on the grounds that lithium has the lightest weight, most voltage, and most prominent vitality thickness of all metals.

Genes from Wild Rice in Northern Australia

Lost handwriting skills

Genes in rice growing wild in the northern part of Australia hold the hope of transforming commercial varieties. It is planned to spice the DNA in the strains we eat. When cooked the Australian kind is much softer than common ones. It is someway off, but progress is being made.

The champ of the World's Most Interesting Genome Competition wasn't even human. It was mutt! Sandy is a 100 percent pure bred dingo. The subject animal had to beat a bombardier beetle, Temple Pitviper snake, pink pigeon and a sea slug.   |.| sandy on dna do dingo is Domestication of dogs dna nt sandy clarifies |.|
SDingo called Sandy
DNA of the pooch was analyzed by Professor Bill Ballard head of a group from the University of Arizona and NSW's universities. The team researched the DNA of a Dingo for determining the genes for domestication. The researchers benefitted from a cash prize for the win: the Pacific Biosciences SMRT Grant. They will spend this to test a portion of the premises recommended by Charles Darwin.   |_| sandy as dingo it go Domestication in sandy dingo dog dna |_| |_| travel news stories genes |_|    

It it easy to acknowledge Darwin's premise that dogs were specifically reproduced by Man to train them to be docile with humans. Having a manageable thoroughbred dingo was an extraordinary chance to break understand how selection took place. Contrasting DNA qualities of trained pooches and Sandy will highlight sequences of genes for conduct and personality. |_| dog dogs domestic genetic clarifies or Domestication charles darwin. |_|

The numbers of wild Canis lupus is diminishing: pet dogs frequently leave the cars of families exploring the outback to breed with pure bloods. Giving them a species name is not logical in my view. Considering they can readily mate with canines and have fertile young. The offspring are not "mules", a necessary requirement for naming.

Scientists Create Compound With Helium

Scientists are wrong about many things, though they advise curriculum developers about scientific "fact".  What has been accepted for centuries as correct is now under threat from new technology.  Helium is not the sacrosanct element that remains a loner not joining with other materials to create compounds.  A group of scientists have joined helium to sodium.
A note here, the person who named the electrical poles got it wrong. He only had two choices: the right way and the wrong way. He said that one pole is positive and the other is negative. Unfortunately, Only holes flow from the named + terminal. Solid electrons flow the other way from the - named terminal: these are not really negative. They are substantial. Naming the pole negative is just a formalization of the greatest mistake in history. Getting back to the issue, high pressure is required for the helium-sodium compound. This could be the normal situation on distant gas giant stars. On these stars there must be different rules for elements. Even close planets such as Saturn and Jupiter would have new compounds that break the rules applying to the Earth. Belief in solitary helium is shattered.

Genetic Treatment for Diabetes Type 2

Diabetics will not change their lifestyle food genetics
The hope of genetic treatment may be scuttled as it is becoming known that we have good and bad genes but their behavior depends on whether they are turned on or off. Apparently this changes throughout the day let alone over the years.

A new endeavor to study diabetes and diet could also be a waste of time. Even sufferers know that diabetes type 2 is caused by eating the wrong food. However, few people will change their lifestyle. A genetic predisposition could add to this. Yet, with the number of medications taken today the link between long term prescription use, genetics and food is a hard nut to crack. Including a third factor makes understanding the issue much more difficult.

As always, research will be done on mice for the genetic/food duo. Unfortunately, mice may be mammals, but they ain't human. Finding a cure for diabetes 2 is way down the track. Scientists will be messing around in the lab collecting data on mice for at least 10 years.

Body Rhythms are Set by Color as well as light

Light affects us in many ways. Nordic countries have light treatment for citizens who suffer from a depressive outlook due to lack of sunshine during winter. Their circadian rhythms are disrupted. Recently evidence points to the fact that color is important as well.
Dawn image picture
A study on mice indicates that color signals reaching the eyes are "stored" in the suprachiasmatic nucleus in the brain. It was thought only sunlight was responsible for setting the body clock. This has been brought into question, however. The research controlled the brightness of artificial sky and also added color blended into the level of brightness.

With only dawn sunlight in the test room mice seemed confused and their body temperatures lagged behind the norm by 30 minutes. When orange and blue was added to the dawn light the mice were perfectly normal in behavior and temperature.

It seems the light/color information is stored in suprachiasmic neurons in a special way. Biopsies show a time lag in the firing of these neurons which ties into low body temperatures. Mammals have evolved in tune with this planet. The animal to Earth "bonding" seems to be very close indeed.
