Nutrition, pheromones and cancer (2)

See: Nutrition, pheromones and cancer Despite the inaccurate reporting of exeperimental evidence, the link from the nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled microRNA / messenger RNA balance is becoming clearer. Unfortunately, due to the inaccurate reporting, others may need to take the free course: Epigenetic Control of Gene Expression, before they can begin to understand the scientific progress in cancer research, which is occurring because some researchers have dispensed with the pseudoscientific nonsense of evolutionary theory. See for example: Biogenesis of intronic miRNAs located…

Ecologically linked adapted ants and brains

Ants Swarm Like Brains Think A neuroscientist studies ant colonies to understand feedback in the brain. By Carrie Arnold April 24, 2014 Excerpt: “The behavior of each individual in the group is set by the rate at which it meets other ants and a set of basic rules. Its behavior alters that of its neighbors, which in turn affects the original ant, in a classic example of feedback. The result is astonishing, complex behavior.” My comment: The molecular mechanisms of…

Another powerful refutation of mutation-initiated natural selection

Brain regions thought to be uniquely human share many similarities with monkeys Date: January 28, 2014 Summary: New research suggests a surprising degree of similarity in the organization of regions of the brain that control language and complex thought processes in humans and monkeys. The study also revealed some key differences. The findings may provide valuable insights into the evolutionary processes that established our ties to other primates but also made us distinctly human. Excerpt: “…some uniquely human cognitive traits may…

Seeds of life: astrobiological theory and mutations theory

Researchers propose new theory to explain seeds of life in asteroids October 1st, 2013 in Space & Earth / Space Exploration Excerpted from above: Both of the established theories – one involving the same radioactive process that heats the interior of Earth, and the other involving the interaction of plasma (super-heated gases that behave somewhat like fluids) and a magnetic field – are still taught to students of astrobiology. My comment: In the context of astrobiological theory and “seeds of…

Are pheromones responsible for human body odour assessment?

Can You Smell Yourself? by Sarah C. P. Williams on 22 January 2013, 5:10 PM Excerpt: “Other molecules the human body produces could also influence individual smells and scent preferences, Zufall says. The individuality of people’s microbiomes—the collection of microbes living in and on us—could also be linked to the body’s odor or preferences, Wedekind says. “We just don’t know the full physiology yet,” he said, “But this is a good start.” My comment: The full physiology has been detailed.…

  • What Darwin proved: there’s no such thing as a species
    GENETICS As Animals Mingle, a Baffling Genetic Barrier A short stretch of DNA is challenging what it means to be a species. By: Emily Singer August 5, 2014 Excerpt: “Scientists have dubbed such regions of the genome “islands of speciation.” The persistence of such islands is a phenomenon that has been observed in a variety of […]
