Bisphenol A In Food Containers Has Adverse Effect On Brain Tissue

...ts in fetus. BPA molecules are linked to form polymers used in polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins but these chemical linkage are unstable and the BPA leaches into the food that comes in contact with the plastic. The problem now associated with this low-dose effect is that deteriorating effect of ...

"The polymers that Kathryn Uhrich and her team have pioneered and developed are unique in that they can serve as barriers while also repressing any inflammatory response, setting the stage for nature to not only heal these areas, but also to regenerate the tissues...

Synthetic DNA Makes Better Hydrogels for Drug Delivery

...urposes are usually made from organic or inorganic polymers (molecules that form long chains), such as alginate from seaweed. Some have been made from proteins but none entirely from ordinary DNA. So far, all these processes have used organic solvents or acids or involve high temperatures, making conditions t...
