"In order to determine if a woman is "responsible" for her miscarriage, Georgia prosecutors would be allowed to investigate. Drug and alcohol use during pregnancy have been cited by policy experts as ways a woman could potentially be held responsible for her miscarriage under the bill." Wow, this is very scary that women could be charged with murder because they are suffering from an addiction or decided to have a small glass of wine with their dinner. Will they also consider prosecuting women with High BMIs, Type 2 diabetes or un-diagnosed thyroid disease. Madness. There seems ...Read More
"How well-meaning donations end up fueling an unproven, virtually unregulated $2 billion stem cell industry."
I experience this article as one example of how far behind mainstream media and health and wellness practitioners are from the long-standing wisdom traditions. As a result, much of society’s basic knowledge is lacking too, since most people don’t look further than the mainstream media for knowledge. ...Read More

Hopefully regulations foster a competitive yet transparent market and dataset for these.
Well, this is like a coin with two sides. Potential of gene editing in science and medicine is huge, but there are also consequences. Similar to all of the great inventions ( dynamite, manipulating nuclear energy, computers and internet).
Wrote about my experimentation with a new drug diet... the amount of people responding to this article is making me feel like maybe my weed + psychedelics regime is scratching something bigger in the zeitgeist...
‘Potential users thus need to consider whether the promise of more health knowledge today is truly worth a potential lifetime of precarity and discrimination in any of the many scenarios in which their data travels in unanticipated ways.’
“I didn't feel super pressured into it, but I felt like I had made a commitment, and I was counting on the money,” said Griffin. “And I felt confident after conversations I had with them that they were going to do the medical part differently this time around.” Very dark ...Read More
Great advances both in AI and in genetics have opened up a wide scope of hybrid fields and applications, such as DNA data storage and the prospect of precision medicine. The age of information is no longer merely about digital information, but increasingly about two types of information: digital data ...Read More
More evidence that sleep is a strength, rather than a weakness, as so many hard charging entrepreneurs and self-proclaimed ”hustlers” try and convince themselves and others 😴💪
