Such an innovation could vastly improve the country’s current dentist shortage and frequent surgical errors. It was developed by the Fourth Military Medical University’s affiliated Stomatological Hospital, based in Xian, and the robot institute at Beihang University in Beijing…
400 million people in China need dental implants, but there aren’t nearly enough dentists on hand to provide the care needed. Only one million are done each year, leading many to go to unqualified individuals to get the work done which obviously leads to more problems.

As a society, we face various issues in the modern world. Synthetic biology is an emerging field that is attempting to address these problems at the genetic level, and researchers in this field are pushing the boundaries of which proteins and processes can be developed and utilized.

One of the latest pieces of research to be undertaken is the invention of semi-synthetic organisms. But what is a semi-synthetic organism?

A semi-synthetic organism is a genetically modified organism (usually a bacterium such as E. Coli), which has had unnatural genetic information inserted into its genome. Read more...

Flesh and Bone and The Protestant Conscience is an e-book on It is 99¢ and in the Amazon lending library as well. It is also available here in PDF format. The book description follows.

Would you let your conscience be your guide?

Does God care if the skin and bone of the dead are passed along to the living for medical uses? Is organ donation OK with God? Should you sign a Living Will?

Did you know that dead organ donors are often anesthetized before their organs are removed? Do you know the current definition of death? The conscience cannot function without facts.

As we ponder the ethics of in vitro fertilization, stem cell research and man-made chimeras, our thoughts trail off. How then should we live? (Ez 33:10)

How should a Christian think about euthanasia by starvation when doctors and the state attorney general all agree it is time to withhold feeding from a brain injured patient? Some things are family matters, but someday it may be our family.

Here is a small book to help you think about whether you want to sign your driver's license, donate a kidney, cremate your loved one, and many other practical questions that may arise in the course of your healthcare decisions or watch over others.

It offers a special focus on the doctrine of the Resurrection that is related to such decisions. Sunday School classes and Bible Study groups could use this book to facilitate discussion about the issues covered.
