    I was just thinking...DNA for Sale-part2

    in Education

    DNA mapping is it the gateway for Eugenics? Can we trust those who have used us?

    "Assessing the work of Charles Darwin, and pondering the experience of animal breeders and horticulturists, Francis Galton wondered if the human genetic make-up could be improved: “The question was then forced upon me - Could not the race of men be similarly improved? Could not the undesirables be got rid of and the desirables multiplied?”This concept of eugenics - a term he introduced - soon won many adherents, notably in North America and England. First practical steps were taken in the United States of America. The government under Theodore Roosevelt created a national Heredity Commission that was charged to investigate the genetic heritage of the country and to “(encourage) the increase of families of good blood and (discourage) the vicious elements in the cross-bred American civilization”.

    Don't be Educated in Ignorance!

    Join in the conversation on I was just thinking... brought to you by the Caribbean Radio Show-The Knowlwdge Station every Friday evening 5-7pm pacific time and 8-10pm eastern time.

    Dan Munro on Big Data, Government & Cancer Research

    in Health

    On the Wednesday, July 24th, 2013 broadcast at 2PM Pacific/5PM Eastern our special guest is entrepreneur, social media thought leader and Forbes Contributor Dan Munro aka @danmunro.
    Dan recently penned a piece for Forbes titled: 'Big Government Opens Big Database For Cancer Research'
    This catchy headline caught my attention since part of our mission at This Week In Oncology is to eliminate the esoterica from 'oncology-speak' and to present the significance of the discoveries, trends and developments in the cancer care and diagnostics in plain english for more general consumption.
    Much progress has been realized in oncology of late with a fair amount of the promisesd upside of 'personalized [or individualized] medicine' often pointing to better outcomes via more targeted treatment of specific tumors based on their unique genetic signature.
    So called 'big data' is in the news as ubiquitous technology, connectivity, the declining costs of massive data dragnets and disease specific mashups affords insights previously inaccessible to reseachers, clinicians and others interested in the diagnosis and/or treatment of oncology.
    We'll get Dan's takes on his piece and see how he sees the confluence of these trends coming together for the benefits of patients.
