The worst part is, think of how many starving families…

Americans aren't ready for biotech-enhanced superhumans Superhero movies might be in but the American public isnt quite keen on seeing a real Captain America. Pew Center researchers asked people how theyd feel about genetically modifying babies to reduce the risk of serious illnesses. They also asked participants for their thoughts on implanting brain chips and transfusing synthetic blood into perfectly healthy humans to make them faster and stronger as well as to improve their capacity to…

Mini-hearts grown to study disease Thousands of miniature human hearts have been grown for medical research by scientists in Scotland. The tiny balls of heart cells beat together in a dish every two seconds, and the tissue matches that of human heart muscle. The researchers, at Abertay University, are using them to test potential drugs for an untreatable condition. The research is being presented at the World Congress on Biotechnology in Valencia, Spain. The spheres of heart cells were made…
