Are insects worse than peanuts?….. A few weeks ago we received an email from a clinical psychologist in Australia whose daughter is anaphylactic to bees and other unidentified insects and is struggling with anxiety. We are all so focused on food allergy that we forget that there are other allergens out there which have nothing to do with food but which are equally dangerous – and actually even less within our ability to control.

A free conference on December 12th, held by the Royal Society, will bring together leading experts to discuss the future of food sources and the human diet in decades to come. The conference will focus on the sustainability and health benefits of plant-based foods, and the application of synthetic biology in food production. The UK’s current standing in terms of food research, technical challenges, changing consumer preferences and public perception, safety and ethical issues, and the regulation of genome edited products will also be explored.

The telecoms industry may claim that that 5G (and indeed 2G, 3G and 4G) are purely technology but a huge body of research now exists showing that mobile telephony has significant effects on the health of humans, animals and the environment.

And as such it should abide by the provisions of the Nuremberg Code on medical ethics. Read on.....

Ten days ago the results of the inquest into the death of Owen Carey from eating chicken which had been marinated in buttermilk were all over the front pages – and totally right that they should have been. Indeed the only tiny glimmer of a silver lining to yet another death from anaphylaxis to a food is that such deaths are now always front page news. And this  means that hundreds of thousands of people who knew nothing about allergy come to have at least some understanding about how serious the condition really is. Read on...

Science is now discovering that mitochondrial dysfunction is implicated in every chronic disease. Yet how much do we really understand of workings of this intricate and delicate organelle, how easily it can be damaged and what we can do to put it right? 
On 24th April 2020 Biolab will present a day of teaching on mitochondrial structure and function, how to test it, its role in chronic disease and how to correct dysfunction.  Dr Sarah Myhill will also be talking about her ground-breaking work on mitochondrial dysfunction in chronic fatigue syndrome.
