Scientific Discoveries of the Present

Today, there has been some advances in the field of medical research which has seen some great potential and application in treating diseases and other applications. The field of research today has never been more fervent in their desire to discover new products and new cures for diseases that are plaguing the people today. Research needs great funding and this is the reason why many countries invest large sums of money to support this. 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 have been recent developments in research that are truly amazing and mind boggling. You will find some of the breakthroughs below.

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. Growing human tissue using spinach leaves is one of the most amazing discoveries of science in recent years. The center of the study is using veins that exist in the leaves to carry blood to the tissue and remove it again. This research development has many great applications. One of this is enabling heart transplants to be conducted in the future without the fear of being rejected by the donor. Another application is being able to repair your heart. We can all be excited about these discoveries.

In cancer research, one development is the approval of e-cigarettes to be a safe nicotine replacement. There was a group of people used for this research and this group consisted of people who smoked e-cigarettes for more than a year now. They tested the urine and saliva of these subjects for traces of twenty chemicals that can be found in cigarettes. Alongside the e-cigarettes smokers, were cigarette smokers and those who took nicotine replacements, and they too were tested. Vaping was found to be the best nicotine replacement of all. 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 need to research to find the best e-liquids.

Another development is the use of DNA to perform as storage for a long time. The latest breakthrough is that of storing and recovering files within DNA by programming the data into codes that DNA knows. In order to retrieve that data, you simply sequence back into code that computers can read. This is one of the greatest discovering today in bio technology. As small as four grams of DNA is large enough to store volumes of data that you can imagine.
