OMG: El gobierno de Perú aprobó un reglamento para evitar el ingreso y la producción de OMV durante diez años, con la excusa de así poder conservar y proteger los cultivos nativos y la biodiversidad nacional. A su vez, el reglamento recoge las sanciones por las infracciones que supondría el ingreso de estos alimentos, controlados por laboratorios acreditados para determinar su presencia.

Olfactory Conditioning Helps With The Possibility Of Sleep-Learning | Bioquímica | Scoop.it
Many individuals struggle with sleeping. Yet now, recent findings published in The Journal of Neuroscience reveal that sleep-learning could actually be a possibility, particularly via olfactory conditioning. In other words, researchers believe that it may be possible to induce or change certain behaviors while asleep.

Patients willing to share research data | Healthcare IT News

Patients willing to share research data | Healthcare IT News | Bioquímica | Scoop.it

As debate swirls about a recent Institute of Medicine report suggesting that electronic health records collect more non-clinical patient data for population health research, a new poll suggest patients are mostly willing to offer access to anonymized health information – to an extent.

IOM wants standardized social and behavioral data to be logged in EHRs. Beyond the four pieces of such information already often collected (race/ethnicity, tobacco use, alcohol use and residential address), its report suggests also collecting patient data related to educational attainment, financial resource strain, stress, depression, physical activity, social isolation, intimate partner violence (for women of reproductive age), and neighborhood median household income.

That data would be a boon for researchers, according to IOM, offering "a coherent panel that will provide valuable information on which to base problem identification, clinical diagnoses, treatment, outcomes assessment and population health measurement."

Toward that end, the group has suggested that ONC and CMS "include in the certification and meaningful use regulations" addition of standard measures for those eight social and behavioral domains."

Predictably, many aren't happy about this prospect – especially physicians who already look askance at EHRs, complaining that they're disruptive to workflow and distract from good care delivery.

As one commenter wrote on Healthcare IT News: "Too many prescriptive requirements already. If a EP wants them let them get the extra data, but we do NOT want more required data fields."

 

"Shouldn't the #EHR work well first?" wrote, one physician, @DavidMayMD, on Twitter. "More data wont help!"

Beyond the question of whether more data collection is encouraged or even mandated, and regardless of what physicians and EHR developers might think of any new certification criteria, the more pertinent concern is whether patients will be willing to divulge or allow access to such data in the first place – especially when it comes to sensitive topics such as their financial status or emotional state.

A poll released this past week from Truven Health Analytics and NPR shows that more than two-thirds, or 68 percent, of Americans are willing to share their health information with researchers.

But there are limits to that openness. Just 22 percent of patients are willing to share their purchase history or social media activity with healthcare professionals, according to the survey.

When it comes to EHRs, 74 percent of respondents say they have a doc who uses one – including 90 percent of patients aged 65 or older, and 60 percent of millennials.

But despite their familiarity with EHRs, and willingness to allow anonymous health data to be accessed by researchers, less than a quarter of patients would let their own physician or health plan access to their credit card purchases or social media information – even if it might improve their overall health, according to the poll.

Sixteen percent of respondents said they have worries about sharing their health records with their health insurer, followed by hospitals (14 percent), physicians (11 percent), and employers (10 percent).

More than half of patients (56 percent) have reviewed the information kept by their physician, the survey shows; just 5 percent said they've been informed their medical records were accessed without their permission.

"An overwhelming number of patients have had experiences with (EHRs), which seems to point towards a concerted effort among healthcare providers to share information as a means to faster, more accurate care," said Michael Taylor, MD, chief medical officer at Truven Health Analytics, in a press statement.

"While privacy concerns have been an issue in the past, as (EHRs) continue to become more prevalent, it appears that Americans are becoming increasingly comfortable sharing this type of information with employers, providers and health plans."

El protagonista de estas declaraciones es José Miguel Mulet, investigador del Instituto de Biología Molecular y Celular de Plantas.Él afirma que el desarrollo de estas técnicas son necesarias para poder alimentar a toda la población y de una manera más segura y con una calidad mayor.

Pone ejemplos de avances en esta técnica para apoyar su posición; como el trigo para celíacos y la carne baja en colesterol.

Crea grandes polémicas entre sus lectores y afrima que la gente que se opone a estas técnicas lo hacen por motivos infundados, místicos, religiosos o históricos sin base científica.

Research shows that genetically modified tobacco plants are viable for producing biofuels | Bioquímica | Scoop.it

"In her PhD thesis Ruth Sanz-Barrio, an agricultural engineer of the NUP/UPNA-Public University of Navarre and researcher at the Institute of Biotechnology (mixed centre of the CSIC-Spanish National Research Council, Public University of Navarre and the Government of Navarre), has demonstrated, for the first time, the viability of using specific tobacco proteins (known as thioredoxins) as biotechnological tools in plants.

 

Specifically, she has managed to increase the amount of starch produced in the tobacco leaves by 700% and fermentable sugars by 500%. “We believe that these genetically modified plants,” she explained, “could be a good alternative to food crops for producing biofuels, and could provide an outlet for the tobacco-producing areas in our country that see their future in jeopardy owing to the discontinuing of European grants for this crop"

The geography of air pollution,  the global distribution of particulate matter. Data for the Middle East shows a high level of particulate matter, last year fieldwork data for carbon dioxide showed levels over 1000ppm. Air pressure being a significant causal factor. High pressure is common here and therefore so is calm weather. Pollutants cannot escape the city. What is the situation where you live?

Una vez más me gustaría recalcar la importancia de los OMG. Como hemos trabajado en clase, todos estos organismos deben de sufrir un proceso muy estricto de regulación. Está bien que la biotecnología permite avances en la ciencia, pero siempre que éstos sean beneficiosos para la humanidad. Es decir, que produzcan los menos daños posibles. Como en este artículo se menciona, podría comercializarse el primer pez transgénico sin peligro para el hombre. Ha sido aprovado por la FDA, pero habrá que ver cuales son los efectos de aquí a unos años.
