The legalization of cannabis for recreational use in regions of North America has introduced a new market that is projected to hit $22 billion by 2020. In order to ensure the safety of users, regulations are mandated and enforced by a range of governing bodies. The Government of Canada, for instance, has outlined a range […]

We all have to get an annual flu shot. I know, it’s not really fun, but at least you’ll be protected during flu season, and hey, if your nurse is nice maybe you will get a lollipop afterwards! But why do we have to get a flu shot every year? Most of us know that […]

Much like invertebrates, plants represent a large source of therapeutic compounds. Plants rely on chemicals for everything, and many of these compounds co-evolved with animals and fungi. Some were meant to attract, while others are meant to deter. Our signals seem to have gotten crossed when it comes to one such plant, who’s defensive mechanism is the very […]

Many of our best drugs are derived from natural sources. Most people will first think of the curative properties of plants such as willows (acetylsalicylic acid, Aspirin) and Pacific Yew (paclitaxel, a cancer-fighting agent). These plants produce chemicals which help with everything from communication and mating to defense and self-medication. However, there is a greater […]

There is a large consorted effort in finding treatment options for diseases that stem from genetic aberrations such as mutations, DNA damage, and other heritable disorders. Treatment options for these disorders have been focused on alleviating the symptoms instead of curing them completely. Unlike other acute injuries or infections, genetic diseases often rely on novel, […]

It is beautiful when harvested, autumn gold sheaves piled on diked, patchwork paddies. It is beautiful when, once threshed, it enters granary bins like a (flood) of tiny seed-pearls. […]

Wine is the most complex and versatile drink on the planet. There I said it. From some grapes growing on a vine, producers are able to make a wide range of wines, from complex, heavy Bordeaux blends to crisp, light, acidic pinots winemakers are able to harness a wide range of aromas, flavors, and yes, […]

Living in the Pacific Northwest – the region that spans from Oregon through British Columbia, Canada – means that we take our coffee quite seriously. The word ‘snobbery’ is an understatement that does not even begin to describe the obsession with the meticulously artisanal-roasted little brown beans. Aficionados, connoisseurs, and coffee-roasters alike quest for the […]

Mercury (Hg) is a ubiquitous and naturally occurring heavy metal. Regrettably, very significant amounts of it are released into the environment due to human activities. Most mercury pollution is produced by coal fired power plants and other industrial processes such as chloride and sodium hydroxide production. Although some mercury compounds are relatively inert, others are […]

The year was 2001, after over a decade of work and billions of dollars of investment the first human genome was sequenced. At the time it was only a futuristic vision that someone could have their genome sequenced to genetic diseases, to predict risk groups, to tailor personalized medicine specifically to the genetics of a […]
