|9/28/2013 - The curse of being a critical thinker is that you can't turn it off, I've discovered. So you become a critical thinker about everything you've been told or taught, and as it turns out, most of what we've all been taught about genetics is a lie.
But don't take my word for it. Join me as we take an...|
|6/13/2013 - In a unanimous ruling, the United States Supreme Court ruled today that human genes cannot be patented.

|11/2/2010 - This is one of the most important issues for the future of human civilization: Who owns your genetic code? Based on existing U.S. law, the corporations own it. Right now, over 20% of your genetic code is owned by biotech corporations (this is a fact). But the U.S. Justice Department has just issued...|
|10/14/2010 - It is common to hear both medical professionals and the population at large talk about certain diseases as if they are inherited from the family genes.
