Saturday, April 6th

Today's posts are all from the last week or so of PhysOrg.com.

A group of doctors, technicians and engineers are working together to develop an implantable tooth containing a reservoir for medicines and a dosing mechanism. This is the sort of functional body modification that anyone could agree on. Why give yourself insulin shots everyday when your teeth can do it for you?

Another article references a study done that shows the benefits of symbiotic bacteria. Not many people seem to know about the benefits of some kinds of micro-organisms, and antibiotics strip those right out of our systems.

And this article describes yet another study on the proximity of peak oil. Peak oil, for those unfamiliar with the term, is the point at which global oil production hits its max and begins to taper off due to lack of any more oil to pump out of the earth.

I encourage Emails and comments. Let me know what you're thinking about the world.
