Isn’t it better to have all bottles exactly the same, forcing you to read the label and rely on nothing else? Maybe it’s just a lab-thing.

Reminds me of section in book: Nazi’s eugenic program reduced schizophrenia temporarily, only for it to return in future generations. Also de novo mutations in-part, as established for many neuro-developmental inc. schizo?

Well that got me blocked. So much for my bit of public engagement of science.

Clarification: Chances of dying *once you have breast cancer* are similar whether you have BRCA1/2 mutation or not. Chances of getting breast cancer in the first place are 50-75%+ if you carry BRCA1/2 mutation (vs <10% in general population).

Dangerous nonsense being peddled by someone who doesn’t have a basic grasp of pathology, tumour biology, or genetics. This is harmful mis-reporting at its absolute worst. Please stop spreading this dangerous rubbish.

Not sure on quality but just work your way along... This was Tesco’s selection of GF beers today. Can’t image Old Speckled Hen making a poor beer.

Not wanting to be a pedant, but what has the plant meristem picture got to do with this story? Do you not have any cancer mitosis images?

I’m sure there are indeed some people on boards with unpopular or unpalatable views. The difference being, they have been very wise in keeping them to themselves.

The top 10 genetics stories of 2017. From attempts to ban abortions of Down's foetuses in USA, to successful RNAi therapy, and direct-to-consumer genomics law changes, its been an interesting year.

I don’t recall the other appointments being announced, or being on the front pages, so I doubt they would have received much attention. I also doubt they have overtly courted such controversy, proposed such unpalatable views, or offended as many people as Toby.
