You may have heard of glyphosate as it is a chemical that is approved to be used in herbicides. But did you know that it could lead to cancer!! Glyphosate is a chemical chelator that binds tightly to minerals. Therefore when applied on crops as a herbicide it removes minerals from the food we eat which cause mineral deficiency which is linked to cancer.

What is Genomic Medicine?

video | June 16, 2022

Our DNA contains 3 billion letters of code: our genome. Almost 99.8% is the same for everyone, but in the remaining 0.2% there are differences that can sometimes be harmful. With genomic medicine we can have our DNA analysed to look for these differences to inform and personalise our healthcare. Genomics England’s vision is to support the NHS to make genomic medicine available to every patient, whilst enabling researchers to improve our understanding of diseases....

Would a society based on genetics be… good?

video | June 15, 2022

Eugenics is the practice of using "planned breeding" for "racial improvement." Because this idea is repulsive, the predominant response has been "genome blindness” — that is, avoiding any study or discussion of genetic differences between people. But according to geneticist Paige Harden, this is the wrong solution. Instead, we should identify genetic differences between people — including those that might affect social outcomes — so that we can help provide people with the resources they need to be successful....
