Summary
" What is therapeutic cloning? What does the process involve? And why do scientists want permission to do it? Prior to what promises to be a contentious political discussion on the subject, Jonica Newby presents the zA to Z Guide3 of therapeutic cloning. Make up your own mind based on the science, not the emotion. Neurologist Dr Richard Fitzpatrick can steer people by remote control. It?s an intriguing concept based on a theory that may impact on one of our biggest causes of hospitalisations in the elderly ? falls. Dr Fitzpatrick hopes his breakthrough will lead to new balance tests that may help predict, and prevent, falls in the future. In the name of science, intrepid reporter Dr Maryanne Demasi allows Dr Fitzpatrick to use electronic stimuli to steer her by remote control. Astounding work done by two New Zealand scientists is set to rock the world of evolutionary biology. For years, we?ve assumed that the rate of evolution ? which is determined by changes in our DNA ? came about very slowly. However, an Otago University study suggests that the pace of evolutionary change may be happening ten times faster than we previously thought."--ABC website
