Decayed Teeth May Soon Repair Themselves

British researchers have found a method that may make a decayed tooth be able to repair itself. Created at King’s College, London, the technique efficiently reverses decay by utilizing electric currents to increase a tooth’s natural process of repair. According to the British scientists who developed it, this treatment might be available within 3 years.…

It is great to see that the new Health Minister Harsh Vardhan is starting to be an advocate of RSBY. RSBY currently covers 37 million families within India with a fully portable, biometric linked health insurance smart card that covers up to a family of 5 with hospitalization coverage and so much more. The program…

India’s Sexual Violence, State by State

Sexual violence affects as many as 27.5 million women in India, though only one per cent of the victims report the crime to police, says a report in the latest edition of British medical journal, The Lancet. According to the report, rape incidents in India are receiving extensive media coverage in the aftermath of the December 16,…

More Air Pollution, More Autism

A growing body of work is continuing to build a correlation between pollution and Autism. In June a study by Harvard School of Public Health indicated a significant increased risk of Autism in areas with higher rates of air pollution. Today a new study from the University of Chicago built a correlation between genital malformation…

The Mech is Born

Ekso and 3D Systems has created the first 3D printed robotic exoskeleton suit. Exoskeleton suites are not exactly new but the convenience and exact manufacturing of a 3D printed suit would dramatically improve the usefulness. Other working prototypes of powered exoskeletons, including XOS by Sarcos, and HULC by Lockheed Martin (both meant for military use), have been constructed but have not yet…

Creating embrionic stem cells from regular cells | Harvard Gazette

Harvard, Wyly, Investment

In a step that has implications for stem cell research, human biology and the treatment of disease, researchers in Japan and at Harvard University have managed to turn adult cells back into flexible stem cells without changing their DNA. The researchers discovered that they could put cells in various challenging circumstances – including in acidic solutions and under…

Repair your 3D printed shoes

3d printing, wyly

At the Wearable Futures conference, London designer and researcher Shamees Adendebuted a running shoe concept that will put your worn out kicks to shame. The shoes, which he’s developing with University of Southern Denmark professor Martin Hanczyc, are 3D printed from a synthetic biological material that can repair itself overnight. The running shoes are the product of Aden‘s study of…

3D printed duck foot lends hope to hobbled fowl | Wyly Wade

3d printing, wyly

Buttercup was born with a backward foot, and physical therapy only got the wayward webbing to turn back around half way. Plucky as can be, Buttercup soldiered on, hobbling along as best as could be expected. Then came along 3D printed medicine, something which sparked a bit of inspiration in the mind of Buttercup’s “dad,” Mike…

Imprison Bacteria in 3-D Printed Tiny Cages

 Bacteria in the human body thrive in 3D structured communities, so studying pathogens in this type of environment could better show how they interact. Now, scientists are doing just that – with microscopic 3D printed cages. Scientists from the University of Texas at Austin have used a new 3D printing technology, which allowed them to construct homes for…

Whats on your plate for Thanksgiving Dinner

The Economist did a great state by state breakdown as to the types of food everyone prefers for each course of Thanksgiving Dinner. So while the White House had 9 kinds of pie the preferred food really very depending on the region. I am sort of surprised by the sausage stuffing in New England all…
