THE GIRL WITH 3 BIOLOGICAL PARENTS
Alana Saarinen had the DNA of about 3 people. Alana was born through an infertility treatment called cytoplasmic transfer. Her mom Sharon was trying to have a baby for over 10 years.
Basically the cytoplasm (the gel-like substance inside the cells membrane) of a donor woman’s egg was transferred inside Sharon’s egg and then later fertilized with Sharon’s husbands sperm. The cytoplasm contained mitochondria so DNA was transferred into the developing child. This resulted in Alana having DNA from 3 people.
Although Alana has DNA from a 3rd woman, she doesn’t consider her, her mom.
The chip is a 20-millimeter square, about 7 millimeters thick, and each day, it dispenses 30 micrograms of a hormone called levonorgestrel, which has already been used in several kinds of contraceptives.
A woman can turn the device on and off with a click off a button so unlike other contraceptives a woman doesn’t have to go to a clinic to deactivate it. It also lasts up to 16 years.
The chip is implanted under the skin of the buttocks, upper arm, or abdomen
It was developed developed by MicroCHIPS of Lexington, Massachusetts, the device will begin testing in 2015. The goal is to have it on the market by 2018.
so when u get turned on you turn it on
Hey guys! Since more bone-chilling science was requested. I absolutely NEEDED to make this post.
In 1940, Russian scientists released a video of a severed dog head. They were kept alive for several hours, wiggling their ears in response to sounds and even licking their mouths.
The scientists claimed they could keep the animals alive by an artificial blood circulation system.
Isn’t that intense? You can watch the full video here
In 2005, American scientists created another pack of zombie dogs. The team rapidly killed the dogs by flushing all the blood from their bodies and replacing it with oxygen- and sugar-filled saline.
Three hours later, the team gave the dogs a blood transfusion, and an electric shock.
The dogs were resurrected, and while some had permanent damage, most were no worse for wear.
This research suggested that the treatment could one day revive people who are bleeding too quickly for doctors to repair their injuries.
And in fact they can now.
I have stumbled upon an article that say scientists can save people by draining all their blood out.
You can read more about that here
The severed head is not alive. Its reflexes are merely being stimulated by electric shocks.
No, actually the head was alive
To prove that the head was alive Soviet physician Sergei Brukhonenko, showed that it reacted to stimuli. Brukhonenko banged a hammer on the table, and the head flinched. He shone light in its eyes, and the eyes blinked. He even fed the head a piece of cheese, which promptly popped out the esophageal tube on the other end.
This is so fucked up but interesting
I think it’s horrible what they did to the dogs. Some scientists accepted his results but many scientists were skeptical even after Brukhonenko released this video. But ofcourse, no one would would want to replicate his exact experiment.
Artificial Cranial Deformation - practiced by the Mayans, amongst others around the world
well one is a drawing and the x-ray and the skulls look like malformation of the cranium. Do you have any idea how many things can go wrong during the formation of bones, especially in the skull with its interlocking cranial plates? Just because it looks abnormal doesnt mean its aliens
Well in case you didn’t know were the drawing and the x-ray come from here is the link—-» starchildproject.com
THE STARCHILD SKULL is a 900-year-old bone skull found in Mexico in the 1930s. The Starchild Project has been working with independent researchers attempting to determine what this unusual skull is since 1999. The results uncovered by the research team ruled out all known deformities, and presented the scientific community with a genetic and physical profile so diffferent from human that it could be a new species.
Ongoing DNA testing has already discovered a high percentage of unusual DNA, and the Project aims to recover the entire genome, which will allow experts to determine if the Starchild Skull is a new species. Eventually we hope that this Skull will assist in the development of scientific and medical advances.
