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.

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...
