Environmental group Greenpeace believes that discarding the radiated Fukushima water into the ocean is such a bad idea, criticizing the Japanese government’s decision. The largest portion of the Earth is water and everything that is dumped into an ocean will surely reach other oceans because it will be drifted by winds and waves. Humans are not the only ones that will be affected but the whole ecosystem itself. There are millions, probably billions of marine...

It has been eight years since the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant and locals are returning to their homes despite the fact that the place is still contaminated.e The radioactive fragments emitted by the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant smothered the town and rice paddies the same size as Connecticut. The disaster which occurred 150 miles north of Tokyo forced over 200,000 residents out of the district. Majority of the residents who moved presumed that they fled to save their...

Altering a human gene may not be the sure way to protect it from contracting diseases. For most couples, having a baby is the most wonderful thing that could happen in their lives. But the practice of gene editing coukd not be the answer to prevent any diseases or conditions from occurring. Dr. He Jiankui had a different point of view. He had modified fetuses for seven couples in the course of fertility treatment. His objective is...

As climate change continues to lash at the planet we are living in causing more and worse catastrophes, humans are fueling the suffrage. Recently, Japan declared its planned withdrawal from the International Whaling Commission (IWC) next year to return the commercial whaling. The government plans to do the whale hunting in seas adjacent to the country including its exclusive economic zone. Japan once sought to reverse a worldwide commercial whaling ban earlier this year. However, the attempt was...

A new Duke Health study indicates that marijuana or cannabis can transmute the genomic lineation of the men’s sperm and could likewise probably affect children too. Cannabis is a controversial issue and while some countries accept it for medicinal purposes, the research never stops studying the implication of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Experiments conducted in rats and a study involving 24 men discovered that the potent substance seems to go after genes in two key cellular pathways. It changes  DNA...

Will the heart transplant become successfull when attempted on humans? Pig heart transplants proved that it can extend the recipient’s life for several months based on the new study of genetically modified pig hearts that made baboons lived for up to 195 days. For many decades, scientists around the world are seeking if animal organs can be used as an alternative, in a procedure known as xenotransplantation. One such huge challenge is to get a primate body that...

Delving into the unknown is both scary and interesting but to these adventure seekers and researchers, there is nothing more exciting than new significant discoveries. Richard Branson will join the submarine expedition that will dive into the bottom of deep and dark largest underwater sinkhole in Belize – the Great Blue Hole. This is going to be quite a stunt since scuba divers usually plunge to a pinnacle of 130 feet underwater. What lies at the...

Adaptation is very crucial for survival and that is what elephants around the world are doing right now to avoid poaching. Elephants in Mozambique’s Gorongosa National Park are proof of the never-ending war between pachyderms and humans. A majority of the mammals bear no tusks. They are the lonely survivors from the 90% of the total population that were butchered for their ivory to fund weapons and meat to sustain fighters. According to National Geographic Explorer...

Ice melts faster than it freezes in the Arctic leaving polar bears little or no place at all to live and give birth. Global warming hastens the melting of ice in the Arctic region but it takes longer to reach freezing point. This event spells extinction for the polar bears. The dawdling freezing of several Arctic regions this winter gave pregnant polar bears a hard time to look for birthing sanctuaries. The sea ice lengthy...

It is getting hotter by the day because of global warming and scientists are thinking of a solution to counter it.   Scientists from Harvard and Yale universities are recommending an innovative but not yet proven approach to address global warming by covering the Earth’s atmosphere with chemicals that could haze the sun. The study was published in the journal, “Environmental Research Letters” introducing the strategy known as the stratospheric aerosol injection (SAI). Researchers suggest that...
