About 2.2 million Americans have atrial fibrillation, a heart arrhythmia in which the two upper chambers, or atria, quiver chaotically
instead of beating in a normal rhythmic pattern, according to the Heart Rhythm Society.

New designer toxins kill Bt-resistant insect pests
...nzyme hacks a bit off each toxin molecule.
The trimmed toxin molecules clump and form pores in the gut membrane cells. The pores let materials flow chaotically
in and out of the cells. As a result cells and ultimately the insect die.
