Sayer Ji – How The Microbiome Make Us “Supra Human”

Once considered the cause of most disease, “germs” are now increasingly being recognized as essential to our survival and well-being by extending our genetic capabilities with “supra human” powers. A groundbreaking study published in the journal Nature titled, “Transfer of carbohydrate-active enzymes from marine bacteria to Japanese gut microbiota,” adds to a growing body of microbiome research challenging the prevailinggenome-centric …

The Extinction Survey – Dmitry Orlov

There is a survey currently running on the Doomstead Diner, which asks people to make specific, numerical estimates about the timing of human extinction. It is inspired by the work of Guy McPherson, who has amassed much scientific evidence that points to very major climate disruption occurring over the next 2-3 decades, caused by multiple runaway positive feedback effects, such …

Study shows humans are evolving faster than previously thought

Humans are evolving more rapidly than previously thought, according to the largest ever genetics study of a single population. Scientists reached the conclusion after showing that almost every man alive can trace his origins to one common male ancestor who lived about 250,000 years ago. The discovery that so-called “genetic Adam”, lived about 100,000 years more recently than previously understood …
