UG#527 - The Emerging Field of Epigenetics (Beyond Genetic Determinism)

04-12-2010 17:56

We look at the emerging science of epigenetics, which studies information which children inherit other than through DNA. This cutting edge science has the potential to tell a new story about evolution, one that is less to do with humans as discrete and separate survival machines controlled by genetic programs, more about our relationships with each other and the world around us. We broadcast a panel discussion from Vancouver 2010 entitled "A Dialogue in Epigenetics - How Does The Environment get under our Skin?", accompanied by a related reading from Charles Eisenstein's Ascent of Humanity.

UG#525 - Cannabis (Medical Marijuana, Forgetting and the Botany of Desire)

28-11-2010 14:37

Last week's episode looked at how man made toxic chemicals have proved more destructive for humans than initially anticipated. This week, by contrast, we look at the effects of chemicals that occur naturally in plants, and may be more therapeutic than generally recognised. In our first hour, Claudia Little, a medical marijuana activist looks at some of the innumerable therapeutic uses of this plant, with a history of medical use going back several thousands of years. Our second hour features Michael Pollan speaking on the contents of his book Cannabis, Forgetting, and the Botany of Desire, which widens our focus to look at how plants have co-evolved to fulfil useful functions to other life forms.

Racism, Religion, and the American and UK Armed Forces Decision to use DU

Racism, Religion, and the American and UK Armed Forces Decision to use Uranium Munitions in their Wars in Iraq, the Balkans, and Afghanistan

While there has been much debate about the wars in Iraq, the Balkans, and
Afghanistan, the most important aspect of those conflicts, the clearly
racist, and religiously motivated decision by the American and UK armed
forces to use depleted uranium, and non-depleted uranium munitions which
have irradiated those 3 mostly Muslim, or large minority Muslim places with
enough inhalable radioactive material to kill millions of people, is rarely
mentioned in the major media, which ought to regard the nuclear wars that
the American and UK armed forces have fought over the last 19 years, as the
biggest scandal of modern times, because there is concrete scientific proof
that those wars could kill more civilians than the Holocaust, as I will now
