Have there been tests on the long term effects of the human gene due to consumption? Where is the Data? If it is so safe, do the farmers and scientest eat it themseves to test the effects? How many GMO injected papayas are consumed by one person in a day, month, or year and wht are the results?

To GMO Gene Injection...look up GMO crops on the internet and you'll see that 75% or more of your market basket contains GMO foods. Hooray for science to be able to feed a hungry world!!!!Go for more GM organisms.

I had a dog bite on my hand years ago. The neighbor got a green papaya and cut it open and smeared the white milky juice on my scars, no shots.

Dear all,

I've been having problems in solving following problem, I'm doing my masters and I haven't got a sound bioinformatics knowledge..however I will have to dela with the following question and I need some help from some expert..

Q: Metallothienein Isoform 3 has some deviated characteristics and its amino acid motifs ranging from 5th to 9th and 56th to 60th are known to interact with cell cycle regulation pathways and prevent the apoptosis. Scientists want to prevent those interactions of metallothienein with the cell cycle by using plant secondary metabolites. How do u identify potential secondary metabolites which can act as a blocker for those interactions..?

Guys I really need help with this within 2 weeks..pls pls help me..thank you in advance..
