University of Southampton – Scientists create tomatoes genetically edited to bolster vitamin D levels. The tomatoes contain as much provitamin D3 as two eggs

Scientists have created genetically edited tomatoes, each containing as much provitamin D3 – the precursor to vitamin D – as two eggs or a tablespoon of tuna. The tomato plants were created by making tiny changes to an existing tomato gene using an editing technique called Crispr-Cas9. “It’s like a pair of molecular tweezers, which you can use to precisely snip out a very small fragment of the gene to enhance a desirable trait in plants a lot quicker than traditional breeding process, and wi...

‘Heat Battery’ A heat battery based on salt and water – Eindhoven University of Technology

The heat battery is based on an old thermochemical principle, which is that when water is added to salt it produces heat. The reverse is also possible, whereby heat can be used to evaporate the water, thus storing the heat energy inside the salt. Storing heat within dry salt makes the battery completely loss-free, providing an incredibly efficient way to store energy for future use. This is particularly useful when energy supply is coming from renewable sources, such as wind and solar, which...

Southmead Hospital in Bristol are implementing a tiny deep brain stimulation (DBS) device into the skull to reverse the symptoms of Parkinson’s

A British hospital is the first in the world to implant a brain device to reverse the symptoms of Parkinson's - and its test patient says it is amazing. It overrides the abnormal brain-cell firing patterns caused by Parkinson's. Parkinson’s disease leads to parts of the brain becoming progressively damaged over years and currently has no cure. Symptoms include involuntary tremoring, slow movement, loss of automatic movement and stiff and inflexible muscles. Most people develop sym...

General Electric (GE) has successfully used ultrasound to regulate insulin levels in diabetic and hyperglycemic animals

Every organ contains nerves that regulate the organ’s function. New medical devices are under development that modulate signals on such nerves to treat disease1,2 (e.g., inflammatory3, hypertension4, diabetes5, obesity6, and gastrointestinal disorders7,8). However, nerve stimulation strategies using permanently implanted electrodes3,9,10, transcutaneous electro-magnetic fields11,12, or adapted brain stimulation technologies13–16 are limited to stimulating large nerves that can be accessed by an...

Plant consciousness & Biocommunication

Research is being conducted to understand Plant consciousness & Biocommunication.
