Like almost all people in the world, I don’t like to be left out by my teeth when I grow up, or even at this present age of time. Imagine life without our teeth, it would be incomplete, right? We cannot chew our food, we cannot speak well and most importantly, WE CANNOT SMILE COMFORTABLY. The smile which brings hope to every despairing. The smile that tells someone in his sad moments that “it’s okay”. So this study can help prolong the span of our teeth so that we could stay together a little longer.
An international study conducted by researchers at the University of Adelaide has resulted in the strongest evidence yet that fluoride in drinking water provides dental health benefits to adults.
In the first population-level study of its kind in the world, researchers have found that fluoridated drinking water is preventing tooth decay for all adults regardless of age - and significantly for people who have had exposure to fluoride for most of their lives.
Conducted by the Australian Research Centre for Population Oral Health (ARCPOH) at the University of Adelaide’s School of Dentistry, the study adds to the established evidence that fluoride in drinking water has dental health benefits for children.
This study is a door-opener to more complex studies leading to, I hope, Human Cloning. As we all know, Dolly, the first cloned sheep lived but eventually died. But these rats will do have a normal life span compared to Dolly which was an unsuccessful cloning.
If this is possible, I would like to have a twin and that would be awesome. Having a person or group of person completely Identical to you is really a great experience. But I just want one, because I don’t wanna be like NARUTO doing the Kagebunshin Technique!! Just kidding.
Using the same technique that was used to create Dolly the sheep, researchers from the RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology in Kobe, Japan, have identified a way to produce healthy mouse clones that live a normal lifespan and can be sequentially cloned indefinitely. Their study was published as the cover story of the March 7, 2013 issue of Cell Stem Cell. In an experiment that started in 2005, the team led by Dr. Teruhiko Wakayama has used a technique called somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) to produce 581 clones of one original “donor” mouse, through 25 consecutive rounds of cloning. SCNT is a widely used cloning technique whereby a cell nucleus containing the genetic information of the individual to be cloned is inserted into a living egg that has had its own nucleus removed. It has been used successfully in laboratory animals, as well as farm animals.
