Lab-grown meat could be in restaurants by 2021

Posted by in category: food

We do have to grow meat in the labs!

Maastricht-based Mosa Meat, which has in the past received more than $1m from Google cofounder Sergey Brin, said it hopes to sell its first products — most likely ground beef for burgers — in the next three years.

The aim is to achieve industrial-scale production two to three years later, with a typical hamburger patty costing about $1.

Trojan Horse Nanoparticle Eats Up Plaque to Clear Arteries

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, engineering, food, nanotechnology

A hungry nanoparticle that enters your body and eats away at your insides sounds like a nightmare straight out of a Michael Crichton novel. In fact, it could be a future defense against heart attacks, strokes, and potentially other fatal diseases — as strange as that might initially sound.

Developed by scientists at Michigan State and Stanford universities, the innovative new “Trojan Horse” nanoparticle works by munching away portions of the plaques responsible for heart attacks. In a proof-of-concept demonstration, the researchers recently showed that their specially developed nanoparticle is able to accurately home in on atherosclerotic plaque, which is responsible for atherosclerosis, one of the leading causes of death in the United States.

“What the nanotherapy does is it enters inflammatory monocytes [a type of white blood cell] in the blood, and carries them into the plaque — hence the ‘Trojan Horse’ label — where they become macrophages, and stimulatesthose and other macrophages in plaque to devour cellular debris,” Bryan Smith, associate professor of biomedical engineering at MSU, told Digital Trends. “This ‘taking out the trash’ attribute stabilizes the plaque with minimal side effects.”

Campodimele: longevity research

Posted by in categories: food, life extension

I know it is cute to talk about. But the so deemed Longevity secret of this article being amazingly similar to all other studies (again olive oil and wine) then they go on to declare the ages of the village and they then say some of them have even lived past one hundred??? There are many centenarians (I prefer to call them centurians) in all nations that fly under the radar. Such as in Dallas several times a week they wish some one on channel 4 news that is 100 or greater Happy Birthday. But I believe this is a false alarm looking for a place to go off-sound… You be the Judge??? AEWR.

Researchers studying the inhabitants of Campodimele, Italy, who are known for their longevity.

Are drones solution to locusts currently ravaging the country?

Posted by in categories: drones, food

On Monday scientists called for advanced technology as the current use of aircraft to spray the pests is proofing to be futile amid growing concerns over their rapid spread.

The experts say deployment of superior technologies such as drones could hold the key to successful combat of the locusts that are now threatening food security in the country.

However, with regulations guiding drones in the country yet to be approved, use of the technology may not be possible as at now.

Preventing metastasis

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, food

Olivier Feron, a University of Louvain researcher, studies how cancer spreads through the body via metastasis. His major discovery was that cancer cells multiply by using lipids as food. His latest discovery, published in the scientific journal Nature Communications, is that lipid storage promotes cancer invasiveness. A new drug currently being tested to treat obesity may also help fight metastasis.

New Tech Will Disinfect Everything and Help Stop Infectious Diseases

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, food, health, nanotechnology, sustainability

Nanosafety researchers at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health have developed a new intervention to fight infectious disease by more effectively disinfecting the air around us, our food, our hands, and whatever else harbors the microbes that make us sick.

They used a nano-enabled platform developed at the center to create and deliver tiny, aerosolized water nonodroplets containing non-toxic, nature-inspired disinfectants wherever desired.

Food Waste Is a Serious Problem. AI Is Trying to Solve It

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, economics, food, information science, robotics/AI

Circa 2019

Technology has long been helping to hack world hunger. These days most conversations about tech’s impact on any sector of the economy inevitably involves artificial intelligence—sophisticated software that allows machines to make decisions and even predictions in ways similar to humans. Food waste tech is no different.
