Science has kept nature from killing us. In 1920 the average life expectancy of Americans was 53 years old. Today, it is 79. Improvements to sanitization, water and food quality, medical treatment, technology advancement, therapeutics and vaccines are responsible for the gift of over 25 extra years of life. Science is responsible for the development of all of those things that have given us the ability […]

Have scientists been able to isolate/identify the virus for COVID-19?

Yes. Chinese doctors, WHO, and CDC were able to sequence (identify the virus and completely document) the genetic code of what was then called 2019-NCoV (2019 Novel COronaVirus). As early as January 2020, we had peer-reviewed publications documenting the sequencing of 2019-NCoV (now called SARS-CoV-2 due to its similarities with the original SARS-CoV). This sequencing involves the entire genome […]

mRNA: Can it alter the DNA of your cell?

The simple answer is no. For further explanation of why this is realistically not possible, please read below…. So let’s talk about what DNA and RNA is first. DNA/RNA are both sugar/phosphate based chains which have a series of “segments” (nucleotides), made of four different “tips” (called nucleobases), arranged in groups of three (called codons). The average human DNA contains […]

Since my writing style doesn’t lend itself well to sass and snark, I’d like to take this update to talk about viruses and mRNA vaccines and how they’re similar […]
