Could you tell me what is the significance of recombinant insulin in history of biotechnology development?
How to think about using genetically-modified bacteria (biotechnology) to fight cancer at johns hopkins.?
Be grateful: Biotechnology is the basis of much of modern medicine. All the scare claims, the vile language ("Nazi science! Tinkering with nature! ") has come to absolutely nothing. When the benefits of gene work in human health became so obvious, the scaremongers switched their attacks to agriculture instead. You need to stop reading scare blogs and be grateful for the amazing new treatments we have today. ...Read more
This is a scientific question: can breast milk be geneticly produced using biotechnology and molecular biology?
No: There are products of living systems in breast milk like immunoglobulin a that can not be replicated synthetically. The easy absorption of various nutrients in breast milk has also never been replicated in more than 3 decades of breast milk research. ...Read more
Can you tell me an example of a discovery, product, or innovation since 1900 that proved to be bad science, untrue, etc?
Loaded question: I would say, in general, as things were discovered or advised they were done so in the time that the evidence and prevailing consensus was positive for that particular product, etc. Over time, as is common (or should be) in science, new information comes about and this is incorporated into what we know and a true scientist is not afraid to adapt, change or even renounce a formerly held belief. ...Read more

Lots of choices.: There are literally hundreds of benzoyl peroxide products, and at least have of them are cleansers. Panoxyl, topix, clean & clear, neutrogena...The list is endless. In addition you should also get a benzoyl peroxide cream or gel to apply twice a day. And be aware that benzoyl peroxide is a bleaching agent - so don't get it on your clothes, or you'll have permanent white spots! ...Read more
Is it possible that Zantac, being a histamine blocker, could cause higher histamine production when coming off of it, resulting in development of allergies? For example consuming diet soda can result in insulin spikes in some cases, possibly leading to di
No: Zantac (ranitidine) is a histamine 2 receptor reverse agonist and would not significantly affect histamine production. When withdrawn. There is a theoretical possibility that Zantac (ranitidine) itself may lead to more histamine release by blocking the histamine 2 receptor (which acts as a feedback switch) but this has not been clinically a significant issue. ...Read more

Hi I got a nose piercing changed from a stud to a hoop and soon after a keloid formed I ve tried salt water rinses and saline solutions for about a month with no result is there anything else I can try for example do aspirin pastes work at all before seei
No to aspirin pastes:
If you really have a keloid, Aspirin pastes will not work. Neither will any other creams, pastes, or potions.
Non surgical treatment of keloids with injections of steroids, like kenalog (triamcinolone), (triamcinolone) may improve the keloid. If this does not work after several treatments, 6 weeks apart. Then surgical excision with possible radiation therapy or kenalog (triamcinolone) injections may be needed. ...Read more
Avoid them!: Hi. Availability of processed and refined foods correlates perfectly with societal risk of obesity and type 2 diabetes. Processing/refining concentrates calories and removes healthy components of whole foods. Eat whole grains, not white. Almost all prepared and definitely all fast foods are poison for society. ...Read more

Body makes it: Building blocks of proteins, called Amino Acids - some we can make from other substances, some we have to ingest - you can find lists in biochemistry or nutrition sites or books. Cholesterol is an example of a nonessential nutrient. We need it to build hormones. We consume it but we also make it from smaller substances, so nutrient but nonessential. ...Read more
All healthy genes: Every one of our genes has mutated repeatedly and been selected for over the course of evolution. Now, I happen to carry a mutant iron transporter that makes it easier for me to keep my iron supplies loaded despite donating blood. Two doses can make me sick. Beneficial mutations usually don't get detected. One mutant erythropoietin receptor created a family of world-class athletes. Etc. ...Read more
Theory vs. Practice?: In theory, wholistic takes into account that health/disease is beyond body issues. As embodied souls connected to a mind, complex+fragile brain controlling a complex+fragile body with millions of orders/sec, issues of health/disease are integrated at all levels, not just body ; not just reactions to body issues/handicaps/pain. Unfortunately, in my experience, most offered is low quality/simplistic. ...Read more

Being a Doctor is a calling, and having a good one, a blessing. ...Read more
