Epistemic corruption (1)

Sunlight is the best disinfectant. That claim was echoed by Elon Musk on 5/3/22. If he stops the social media censorship of facts on Twitter, the epistemic corruption may end. Epistemic Corruption, the Pharmaceutical Industry, and the Body of Medical Science 3/8/21 It is not just that there is a body of medical science perverted by industry largesse. Instead, much of the corruption of medical science via the pharmaceutical industry happens through grafting activities: Pharmaceutical companies do their own research…

Molecular Diagnostics: What is unprotected life? (5)

Molecular Diagnostics (April 6 and 7, 2016) Available on demand: Molecular Medicine in Healthcare: The Personalized Medicine Initiative Pieter Cullis answered this question at 41:50 In the context of nutritional epigenetics and Precision Medicine, do you think RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions link changes in the microRNA/messenger RNA balance from the innate immune system to healthy longevity and/or to pathology? Pieter Cullis Pieter Cullis answered this question at 1:01  Do you think that neo-Darwinian theories, which link mutations to evolution have…

Molecular Diagnostics: What is unprotected life?

Facile Recoding of Selenocysteine in Nature Abstract excerpt: This illustrates the ease by which the genetic code may evolve new coding schemes, possibly aiding organisms to adapt to changing environments, and show the genetic code is much more flexible than previously thought. My comment: It also refutes the ridiculous theories of neo-Darwinists, by placing ecological variation and ecological adaptation into the context of how nutrient-dependent RNA-mediated events are linked from the innate immune system to the physiology of reproduction and…
