Scientists Bring A Severed Brain Back To Life, Sparking Ethical Debate

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health

Nothing is impossible … just don’t get queasy when Human bionodes are able to experience the consciousness of other people’s bodies.


NEW HAVEN, Conn. (CBS Local) – Has science gone too far? That’s the question some experts are asking after Yale University researchers announced that they have successfully reanimated a pig’s brain, which had been severed from its body.

Wellness: Developed by NASA in the ‘60s, PEMF Therapy Heals Through Pulsing Magnetic Waves

Posted by in categories: entertainment, health

The future is here. Technology that used to exist strictly in the realm of Sci-Fi movies, and for astronauts, is now available to all.

Developed by NASA in the late 1960s to help astronauts stay alive while in orbit and away from the earth’s magnetic field, PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) Therapy is a treatment designed to help the health of the body’s cells by pulsing magnetic waves.

AI Drug Hunters Could Give Big Pharma a Run for Its Money

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, economics, health, robotics/AI

But a less-noticed win for DeepMind, the artificial-intelligence arm of Google’s parent Alphabet Inc., at a biennial biology conference could upend how drugmakers find and develop new medicines. It could also dial up pressure on the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies to prepare for a technological arms race. Already, a new breed of upstarts are jumping into the fray.


Alphabet’s DeepMind cracked a problem that long vexed biologists, heating up a technological arms race in health care.

A Common Cold Virus Wiped Away Bladder Cancer in One Patient

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, genetics, health

A simple cold virus could wipe out tumors in a form of bladder cancer, a small new study suggests.

Though the idea of using viruses to fight cancer isn’t new, this is the first time a cold virus effectively treated an early-stage form of bladder cancer. In one patient, it eliminated a cancerous tumor, the group reported July 4 in the journal Clinical Cancer Research.

A group of researchers conducted an early-stage clinical trial in which they infected 15 bladder cancer patients with coxsackievirus A21, which is one of the viruses that cause the common cold. Coxsackievirus is not a genetically modified virus; it’s “something that occurs in nature,” said senior author Hardev Pandha, a professor of medical oncology at the University of Surrey in England.

Elite Athletes Have Exercise-Enhancing Gut Bacteria

Posted by in category: health

A new study has discovered that the guts of elite athletes contain a particular type of bacteria that boosts exercise capacity. The bacteria are members of the genus Veillonella and are not present in the gut microbiomes of sedentary people.

The microbiome

The microbiome is an ever-changing ecosystem in the gut populated by a vast array of types of archaea, eukarya, viruses, and bacteria. Four microbial phyla, Firmicutes, Bacteroides, Proteobacteria, and Actinobacteria, make up 98% of the intestinal microbiome.
