Cancer detection breakthrough uses chewing gum to trap and analyze biomarkers for cancer already growing in your body

U.S.-based biotech firm Volatile Analysis‘ non-profit Hudson Alpha have developed a chewing gum that may help detect cancer. According to the company’s scientists, each type of cancer produces a unique set of chemicals known as volatile organic compound. These chemicals differ in composition per cancer type, in the same way a healthy lung produces compounds that are different from a diseased lung, the scientists explained. Researchers said the gum absorbs these volatile compounds from a person’s saliva. The chewing gum is then analyzed after 15 minutes of chewing.

Biohackers May Soon Be Under The FDA’s Watchful Eye

Genetic engineering is proving to be an increasingly useful tool, effective at everything from protecting plant species to helping humans battle disease. It’s also getting progressively easier to harness, which is why we’re seeing a quickly growing community of do-it-yourself genetic engineers (or biohackers) emerge. Many of these DIY scientists are focused on improving animal species for better breeding, but some skeptics are afraid some well-intentioned scientist somewhere might accidentally home-brew a deadly pathogen or open some other sort of Pandora’s box of genetic devastation.

Stephen Hawking: 100 Years Left For Humans To Escape Earth

Keeping up with his warnings, Hawking warns in a forthcoming documentary – called Stephen Hawking: Expedition New Earth – that humans should make their exodus from the planet within the next century if they have any hope of surviving. According to the BBC, which is releasing the feature this summer, Hawking discusses his assertion that “the human race only has one hundred years before we need to colonize another planet.”

Netflix begins SCIENCE PURGE to eliminate genetics education from videos

People laughed when I predicted in this Bill Nye story about how he thinks transgenderism is “evolution” that California would begin purging genetics education from its textbooks to appease the lunatic Left. Not even two weeks after my prediction, Netflix has already begun its Orwellian purge of science education from older videos, “stealth editing” genetics and sex expression information out of them in order to conform to the “gender fluid” lunatics of the insane, delusional Left.

CRISPR Eliminates HIV in Live Animals

Due to their innate nature to hide away and remain latent for extended periods of time, HIV infections have proven notoriously difficult to eliminate. Yet now, new data released from a research team led by investigators at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University (LKSOM) and the University of Pittsburgh shows that HIV DNA can be excised from the genomes of living animals to eliminate further infection. Additionally, the researchers are the first to perform this feat in three different animal models, including a “humanized” model in which mice were transplanted with human immune cells and infected with the virus. Findings from the new study were published recently in Molecular Therapy in an article entitled “In Vivo Excision of HIV-1 Provirus by saCas9 and Multiplex Single-Guide RNAs in Animal Models.”

Google Founder Secretly Building Massive Airship…

Brin, the Google co-founder, has secretly been building a massive airship inside of Hangar 2 at the NASA Ames Research Center, according to four people with knowledge of the project. It’s unclear whether the craft, which looks like a zeppelin, is a hobby or something Brin hopes to turn into a business. “Sorry, I don’t have anything to say about this topic right now,” Brin wrote in an email.

Musk’s Neuralink: Brain-Machine Interfaces

He started Neuralink to accelerate our pace into the Wizard Era—into a world where he says that “everyone who wants to have this AI extension of themselves could have one, so there would be billions of individual human-AI symbiotes who, collectively, make decisions about the future.” A world where AI really could be of the people, by the people, for the people.
