Science Site Rationalizes Sales of Baby Body Parts

The video that shocked the nation—Planned Parenthood selling fetal organs—is whitewashed by a science website. This is a story about how evil can be spun to be not quite so...

Bioethics: Into the Storm Without an Anchor

...Fetal cells were injected into a man’s brain to try to cure his Parkinson’s disease. “It takes cells from at least three fetuses to treat each half of the brain.”...

Dino Soft Tissue Confirms Creationist Prediction

...is consistent with potential preservation of the original quaternary structure of the protein.” Blood cells were found. Though shrunken in size, this confirms Schweitzer’s original claim of finding blood cells....

CRISPR Opens Pandora's Box

...impact on the ecology. Cells could be weaponized for biological warfare. And the prospect of “designer babies” looms larger than ever. One doesn’t have to look too far down that...

Neanderthal News and the Limits of Organic Material Survival

ago. And if Neanderthal man’s DNA was already decaying beyond recognition, and Iceman’s red blood cells were hard to recover, that means that the red blood cells found in a...

Epigenome Project Finds Symphony in Cells

Adult Stem Cells Beat Clones

of these aberrations than embryonic stem cells derived from an unfertilized human oocyte, or than embryonic stem cells derived from leftover IVF embryos,” Science Daily says. “These findings suggest that...

Sex Cells: The Evolution (or Design) of Genitalia

...of all proteins made by the body). In “Amaze balls: Testicles site of most diverse proteins,” Andy Coghlan noted one unexpected result: The proteins in our cells and tissues are...

The Cures Are Inside You

reported. It appears that the stem cells could be embryonic or induced pluripotent stem cells; either way, the stem cells appear able to create the pancreatic beta cells necessary to...

The Machinery Behind the Senses

There’s a lot of physical work our eyes, ears, and brain cells perform to support our perceptions of the world. Blind man’s bluff: There’s only a small area of sharp...

Robots Imitate Life

...Reeve was campaigning primarily for embryonic stem cell research, but this article says nothing about it. The focus is entirely on bionics – technologies imitating nature. Reach out and touch:...

Findings Spur New Ethical Challenges

adult cells to their embryonic state, called induced pluripotent stem cells. A paper in Science Magazine appears to treat embryonic stem cells (EC) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) equally,...

Body Wonders at the Cellular Level

...information: Not all nerve cells excite other cells; some inhibit the activity of others. This means that the activity in a network can oscillate around a certain level of activity...

Cell's Molecular Machines Arouse Fascination

stem cells. It serves as the executioner of an elegant pathway that prevents stem cells from changing into other cell types. The protein does this by acting like a garbage...

Secularists Adrift with Embryonic Ethics

cells are better than iPSCs. The researchers claim that embryonic stem cells are the gold standard; cloned cells (somatic cell nuclear transfer), “in which genetic material from an adult cell...
