Shortage Of Organs For Transplantation -- Is More Research on Human-Animal Chimeras the Right Approach?
This piece was originally published on Bionews and co-authored with Giulia Cavaliere. You can read the original piece here. It is time to discuss, once again, the lifting of a moratorium on research. We are not talking about the CRISPR genome-editing moratorium, but about the 20 August announcement by the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) to lift the moratorium on research involving chimeric human/non-human embryos. The use of federal funds for this kind of research had been previously banned by the NIH in September 2015. Although it does not state it explicitly, the NIH announcement seems to have been triggered by ...

Prince's Death Is an Opportunity to Talk to Our Kids About the Dangers of Prescription Drug Abuse
Prince is seemingly now part of a rising death toll related to opioid use, and his death spotlights a growing threat to the health and safety of teens and adults alike. Two years ago, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) reported 28,000 deaths from opioid overdose. Today, it reports two million Americans are addicted to these medications. The reason opioids like morphine, oxycodone and hydrocodone are problematic is that they are highly addictive and increasingly over-prescribed by doctors - so much so that the CDC recently had to publish guidelines for prescribing physicians. Prescription opioids are also to blame for ...

Long before microdosing was being touted as the Silicon Valley life hack du jour, Dr. James Fadiman was investigating the potential mind-enhancing effects of ingesting psychedelic drugs like LSD and psilocybin, more commonly known as magic mushrooms.   In the 1960s, Fadiman conducted pioneering psychedelic research, including one study in which he gave LSD and another hallucinogen, Mescaline, to scientists, mathematicians and architects to see how it affected creative problem-solving.

Vertex and Illumina both released relatively weak financial forecasts ahead of the J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference.

Why Are So Many College and High School Kids Abusing Adderall
During the past 15 years, there has been a remarkable transformation in the drug trade. It used to be dominated by the illegal drug cartels. Now it it is dominated by the legal drug companies. The most dangerous legal drugs are the prescription opioids, now responsible for twice as many deaths as street drugs and also for a secondary epidemic of heroin addiction. The next most dangerous legal drugs are Xanax and other short acting benzodiazepines that potentiate overdoses, cause severe addiction, raise the risk of falls, and worsen cognitive problems. ADHD meds are the most dangerous legal drugs among young people in co...

Why Are So Many High Achieving Girls Unhappy?
Happiness is the ultimate currency -- more than wealth, achievements or material possessions -- and we should raise our children, structure our schools and live our lives in a way that maximizes it.
