The COVID 19 vaccines saved a great deal of life in 2021, but convincing several Americans to have them proved to become an enormous hurdle for public health officials. Consistent hectoring from the anti-vaccine movement and attempts to mandate the photos just exacerbated the controversy, which has yet to die down. So what can the intensive political fight with the vaccines teach us about science interaction progressing?
The lab leak origin story for SARS-CoV-2 morphed from fringe conspiracy theory to legitimate medical hypothesis seemingly overnight. An aspect of the controversy will continue to state that the offered evidence supports an all-natural origin for the disease. At the same time, the additional factors to revelations about bat coronavirus research done at the Wuhan Institute of Virology argue that we want a fuller study to figure out exactly where SARS-CoV-2 came from. Can we ever understand how this pandemic started?
After years as a stronghold of opposition to crop biotechnology, the UK recently broke with the European Union. It started taking measures to permit the growers to develop gene-edited plants. Activist opposition to this particularly remarkable policy shift stays good. However, the British government has not been swayed, pointing to the numerous scientific studies indicating that genetic engineering provides advantages that are considered while posing a little threat to human health and the environment. So is this development even further evidence that the anti-GMO movement is losing its political influence?
