improvement of the human l'human

Improving the human being is not without risks for society.

An international team is looking at new technologies that improve human physical and cognitive skills, their development and their distribution in society. The possibilities are dizzying, but they raise many questions about the very essence of human beings, about what is useful for their development, about what is useful for their well-being and about what is not.

Climate: citizens enter rebellion

In the climate crisis, there is a strange phenomenon: pusillanimity, if not the defection of States. While all the world's seers are in bright red and public opinion around the world is aware of the gravity of the situation, while at the

Glyphosate: European authorities took Monsanto's reports verbatim to authorize the pesticide

/

Pure plagiarism. In literature, it's not very pretty, but in public health, it's very serious. In 2017, the European Union extended the use of glyphosate, the famous herbicide from the firm Monsanto/Bayer, for five years. This authorisation is the result of an expert report that plagiarized the use of glyphosate.

The information went around the world in just a few hours: a Chinese researcher announced this week that he had been able to deliver two genetically modified babies. A world premiere that has propelled

High tech frenzy on food production

D’ici 2050, il faudra nourrir 10 milliards d’humains. Certains observateurs pensent que les technologies pourront aider à trouver des moyens de nourrir une population mondiale gigantesque, au même moment où le dérèglement climatique et la pollution environnementale entraîneront la dégradation des sols et limiteront l’accès à l’eau. La FoodTech a

Climate alert: who will save us from the announced drama?

Perhaps it will be necessary to remember this day on Monday, October 8, 2018. It began with the publication of a 400-page paving stone: the report of the IPCC, the international organization that monitors our climate. Its verdict is a wake-up call: the climate is getting out of control and if nothing is done we are going to

mosquito gene drive

CRISPR genetically modified organisms would cross the species barrier. And that's very bad news.

Malaria, Zika, chikungunya... are terrible scourges. Caused by mosquitoes that all the affected countries intend to eradicate. Researchers have long been examining chemical (insecticides), physical (radiation), transgenic solutions... Nothing seems to be effective enough next to a bludgeoning weapon: genetic forcing. It is a

Organisms modified by CRISPR are legally GMOs

The scientific-economic-judicial battle has been raging for ten years. Are organisms (plants or animal species) modified by genetic engineering tools such as CRISPR GMOs or not? The Court of Justice of the European Union has just handed down its verdict, which will henceforth set a precedent: organisms modified by
