    Broad based anti-viral - derived (somewhat ironically I thought, from it's recent bad rap...) from sugar molecules.


    “We have successfully engineered a new molecule, which is a modified sugar that shows broad-spectrum antiviral properties,” says Samuel Jones and Valeria Cagno, lead researchers on the study. “The antiviral mechanism is virucidal meaning that viruses struggle to develop resistance. As this is a new type of antiviral and one of the first to ever show broad-spectrum efficacy, it has potential to be a game changer in treating viral infections.”

    While I can see the benefits in a variety of areas - the medical applications of this are fairly astounding (and why i'm posting here rather than in 3d print thread) . Need a new vascular system? BAM printed, in sterile conditions - in mere seconds.

    this could be MASSIVE if they can replicate it and it works on other patients.

    More on DNA treatments. Some reports from CRISPR human trials - all successful.

    Whats wrong with facing the sun with your eyes closed? Significant numbers of beach goers does this for much longer periods.

    Significant numbers of beach goers also give themselves skin melanomas and eye cataracts doing the same.

    Please be sun smart. Don't follow the mindless herd at Bondi. Think about both your short term and long term health.
