Scientific Discoveries of the Present
Today, there has been some advances in the field of medical research which has seen some great potential and application in treating diseases and other applications. All over the world researches are being conducted so that they can come up with more products and they can have cures for widespread diseases. Research needs great funding and this is the reason why many countries invest large sums of money to support this. And this is a great undertaking. With the success of these researches, it would benefit humanity a lot if it could bring cures and treatments for our present diseases. And there are some quick developments that even now, in this age, we may be able to experience some of these medical wonders. There have been recent developments in research that are truly amazing and mind boggling. Below are some of these developments.
Biology is one subject that is a very challenging one. Most people in this world have no idea how plants and animals are able to survive in this world. However, one of the great developments in this science is the discovery of growing human tissue on spinach leaves. The veins of the spinach leaves is used to carry blood to the tissue and remove it again. There are many great applications for this research development. One of this is enabling heart transplants to be conducted in the future without the fear of being rejected by the donor. Repairing the heart makes it possible through this development. These discoveries are really wonderful.
In the area of cancer research, it has been shown that e-cigarettes could be as safe as other nicotine replacements. A group of e-cigarette smokers were studies while they smoked e-cigarettes for more than a year. The urine and saliva of this group were tested for traces of the twenty chemicals found in cigarettes. There was another group of cigarettes smokers together with those using other nicotine replacements who were also tested. Vaping was found to be the best nicotine replacement of all. You still need to be careful even though this is a great development. There are said to be e-liquids that contain harmful chemicals that can also harm the body. You need to research to find the best e-liquids.
Another development is the use of DNA for long time storage. In this latest breakthrough DNA is used to store and recover large files within it by programming data into codes that are known by the DNA. When the data was to be retrieved, it was simply sequenced back into the code that a computer can read. This could be a great thing using bio technology. A lot of information can be stored in four grams of DNA.
