With lab-grown meat, can we have our animals and eat them too?

With lab-grown meat, can we have our animals and eat them too? | PDHPE | Scoop.it
Not many scientists are trying to grow meat in the lab, but those who are think it could change the world.
Chloé Génion's insight:
Prompt for discussion. Ethical implications? Dietary implications? Concerns? Changes to lifestyles? What would happen to farms? Would you be happier to eat 'lab meat' rather than meat from a dead animal? Why/why not?

MMR Vaccine & Autism

MMR Vaccine & Autism | PDHPE | Scoop.it
A fifteen page story about the MMR vaccination controversy. As ever, I'm sure a few spelling errors have slipped past me. Feel free to point any out so I can correct them. The reference links for the strip are in the next blog entry. Now! Let's have a heated debate! 2013 update. Since I wrote…
Chloé Génion's insight:

'Dr' Wakefield:

 

- sample size of 12 children (no control group)

- patients were found through anti-MMR vaccine groups

- results never replicated

- previously hired by a solicitor to find evidence that the MMR vaccine did harm for a lawsuit

- paid £435 643 + expenses by the solicitor for his work

- money not declared to the journal that published the paper (the Lancet)

- along with the father of one of the boys in the study, he planned to launch an 'autistic enterocolitis' diagnostic kit (a condition which does not exist - he coined the term in his '98 paper) 

- had filed a patent for a replacement measles vaccine

- original clinical records (from the Royal hospital where he worked) of the children were different to what was reported in the study - namely that none of the children suffered from inflammatory bowel disease at any point during the study

- the Lancet retracted the paper

- was found that he conducted tests on the children that were not approved by an ethics committee (inc. colonoscopy and lumbar puncture)

- the General Medical Council disciplinary panel found him guilty of 36 charges including 12 counts of involving the abuse of developmentally challenged children

- had his medical license revoked and is barred from practicing medicine in the UK
