As for coffee enemas, i wouldn't ever do that again.. its already got me banned from Starbucks.
Half of it (whether your particularly green or not) is rage against the machine - ie anyone in authority can't be trusted (which unfortunately history has shown that that can too often be the case, and so there is a trust issue)..
This is a pretty cool paper. Difficult to do. Why? Because genome sequencing is hard. You end up with terabytes of four letter DNA code A, G, C, and T. The only way to make sense of it is to simplify. Select the good reads and delete contaminating DNA. So most of the times foreign DNA from viruses is deleted first step. But this group found horizontal gene transfer from baculovirus into the butterfly. Check it out.
And if you didn't know it before, wasps are the assholes of the insect world.
But the Google image on the right of a tomato stuck with needles links to a very weird article about Russia criminalizing GMOs.
Or is it that weird? Russia became a backwater in biological sciences under Stalin and communism because it could not let go of Lamarckism. Evolution was off limits. And so the scientists and science was derailed.
Will it be the same for new biotechnology of the 21st century? Europe might recover from its affair in woo science after food prices rise a little too high. But if you criminalize the activity, that can set yourself back in a way that you can never catch up.
GMOs, the same way I hope. Climate change demands crops are more drought tolerant so GMO drought tolerant crops are created. The poor in third world countries are eating rice that has no Vitamin A and children are going blind so GMO golden rice is created to alleviate the problem. Thousands of years of potato crop development has made a french fry full of cancer causing acrylamide so a Lamarckian GMO Innate potato steps in.
Now it makes sense.
You know are President is a muslim
Muslims! When can we get rid of them?
We need this question
