Quantifying recycled content in plastics and packaging – ReCon2
The use and disposal of synthetic polymers in packaging and other applications has become a critical environmental issue, and one that we must control as a society.
Super MAN stem cells - Ethical stem cells
The procurement of stem cells, which are used in ever-more effective treatments for conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, is a source of moral concern for many opposed to the practice. However, a new ethical solution may mitigate this flashpoint moral quandary.
