You Are What you Eat – The Health Behind Aeroponics

“Globalization” increasingly is about the converging environmental crises of the 21st century instead of about the world’s ever more globally interconnected economy.
Cases in point: Anthropogenic climate change, the continuing avalanche of the human population explosion, the looming global food crisis, intensive chemical farming practices and soil depletion, and California’s long-term drought.

Turner Syndrome – Knowing is Power

Everyone has heard of Down Syndrome, which is a chromosomal disorder that results from an extra copy of chromosome 21, instead of 2 copies of chromosome 21 individuals with down syndrome have 3 copies.
