Scientific Discoveries of the Present

At this present age, medical research has seen advances far and wide. All over the world researches are being conducted so that they can come up with more products and they can have cures for widespread diseases. Countries all over the world are pouring funds for research since a lot of money is involved if we are to see some scientific breakthroughs. Research is a great undertaking. So, if these researches pull through and are able to produce that which can cure and treat our present day diseases, then what a great benefit that would be. And there are some quick developments that even now, in this age, we may be able to experience some of these medical wonders. There are amazing and mind boggling developments in research at the present time. Below are some of these developments.

Biology is one subject that is a very challenging one. Most people in this world have no idea how plants and animals are able to survive in this world. However, one of the great developments in this science is the discovery of growing human tissue on spinach leaves. The veins of the spinach leaves is used to carry blood to the tissue and remove it again. This research development has many great applications. One of the greatest applications is in the area of heart transplants where it will now be possible for it to be conducted without having to fear rejection from the donor. Repairing the heart makes it possible through this development. These discoveries are really wonderful.

In cancer research, one development is the approval of e-cigarettes to be a safe nicotine replacement. The research was conducted on a group of people who were smoking e-cigarettes for more than a year. The goal was to check if there are traces of the twenty chemicals found in cigarettes in the urine and saliva of the people in the group. Alongside the e-cigarettes smokers, were cigarette smokers and those who took nicotine replacements, and they too were tested. And it showed that vaping was the nearest to traditional replacements than others. This is a great development although you still need to be careful. There are e-liquids that are said to contain harmful chemicals that can make one sick. You should buy only the best e-liquids when you use e-cigarettes.

Another development is the use of DNA for long time storage. The latest breakthrough is that of storing and recovering files within DNA by programming the data into codes that DNA knows. When the data was to be retrieved, it was simply sequenced back into the code that a computer can read. This is one of the greatest discovering today in bio technology. Using four grams of DNA is large enough to store the data created by all humanity over a span of a year.
