Nobel prize for gene splicing with glowing jellyfish genes

This is fascinating.

Why on earth would you want to do that?

Two Americans and one Japanese researcher were awarded the 2008 Nobel Prize in Chemistry on Wednesday for the discovery and development of a brightly glowing protein first seen in jellyfish...
Then it's explained....

And we're supposed to shut down our powerstations, stop eating meat and using meat products... and move into caves?

Psst, Humans are the top of the food chain. Apex predators. Get used to it.

On a side note to medicinal stuff and cancer, Mum told me this week that she has to have radiation therapy on 24 November. That's the earliest the oncologist can get her in. She's mad as a hornet because it's a procedure where she has to follow a regimen prior to the therapy, and that is the very earliest he can get her in. No dairy will probably kill her! She loves her milk, yoghurt and cheese.
She wants to get it all over and done with. We all were led to believe that after the surgery that would be it.
She's a private patient, too.
