Japanese scientists have created an enzyme that eats away at plastic bottle waste

Could this spell the end of plastic bottle waste?

Japanese scientists have accidentally created a mutant enzyme that eats away at plastic bottles, it has been revealed. The new research was spurred by the discovery in 2016 of the first bacterium that had naturally evolved to eat plastic, at a waste dump in Japan. Scientists have now revealed the detailed structure of the crucial enzyme produced by the bug.[Read More...]

Scientific studies prove existence of meridians

Scientific studies prove existence of meridians

A new scientific study has recently confirmed the existence of meridians, which researchers have referred to as the “primo-vascular system”. According to scientists at Seoul National University, this system is a crucial part of the cardiovascular system. As part of the study, researchers injected a special staining dye which coloured the meridians. By injecting the dye onto acupuncture points, they[Read More...]

Scientists given permission to create GM babies

Scientists given permission to create GM babies

Scientists have been given the go-ahead to create genetically modified humans, it has been revealed. The fertility regulator known as the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) have allowed scientists to create a DNA-altering technique in embryos. As a result, researchers at the Francis Crick Institute in London will conduct further experiments into creating genetically modifying people. The only thing[Read More...]

New super-ocean discovered 400 miles beneath our feet

New super-ocean discovered 400 miles beneath our feet

Scientists have recently discovered an ocean 400 miles beneath the ground which could fill our oceans three times over, it has been revealed. The revelations about this giant reservoir of water was recently made after researchers spent decades theorising over what lies beneath. This new discovery appears to suggest that the Earth’s surface water actually came from within, as part[Read More...]

Ancestral memories can be passed down our DNA, according to new findings

Scientists reveal memories and ancestral experiences ‘inherited’ via our DNA

Memories may be passed down to future generations through DNA, according to a new study by US scientists. Researchers from Emory University School of Medicine, in Atlanta said that the emotions and experiences of our mother and fathers are passed down through future generations and inherited biologically through chemical changes that occur in DNA. This may help to explain how[Read More...]
