This week in Sciencism; Bacteria DNA in the Human Genome. Mole Rats anti Cancer Goop. Parkinsons Disease Treatment. First Four Quark Particle Discovered.
Many of you may be familiar with homeopathy, the idea that greatly diluted potions can help cure disease, our little demonstration points out how ridiculous this is.
No mechanism known to all of science could possibly lead to this kind of dilution causing any effect to the body, in fact tap water is more likely to have molecules of the active ingredient by contamination then homeopathic remedies.
This week on Sciencism host Ross Balch is joined by, Andrew Stephenson, Dan Abrahmsen and Natalie McKirdy to discuss; the most recent mars rover findings, early 4 winged birds, obese mothers and the risk of disease in the foetus, the “confirmation” of the Higgs, earthquakes precipitate gold, development of the wallaby, HeLa cells have their genome sequenced, is the kilogram loosing weight. And we critically analyse if a meteorite carried life to the planet earth. Dan tells us about last week in the past.
