We Are Weaker Than Our Ancestors

Researchers confirm that modern society technologies and comforts caused the decline of our overall strength.
We don’t need science to realize our lifestyle is sedentary and not active enough. What we didn’t know is that, compared to our ancestors, our body became weaker and less fit than it used to be 7.000 years ago.

Scientists Created “Alien-DNA”

The genetic material of all creatures on earth is saved in the biomolecule Deoxyribonucleic Acid, the DNA. It consists of four components: the bases Adenin (A), Thymin (T), Guanin (G) and Cytosin (C). These appears as pairs in the combinations of AT and GC. Now, a team of scientists at the Scripps Research Institute in California, led by chemical biologist Floyd Romesberg, extend the alphabet with two new created ‘foreign’ building-blocks, called X and Y.

Stable Propagation of Next Natural DNA

A team of American scientists created a semi-synthetic organism with an expanded genetic alphabet. Old, natural DNA consists of two distinct base pairs, A-T and G-C. The letters refer to specific sub-units within a pair adenine (A) binds to thymine (T) and cytosine (C) binds to guanine (G) to create the well known double helix.

Technosphere Interference

Medical teams in Austria and Egypt published a study in which they report the effects of cell phone usage on men fertility.
Results show a potential correlation between increased mobile phone usage and erectile dysfunction.

“The number of global mobile phone subscriptions is estimated at five billion. Cell phones operate using a wide range of frequency bands (4002000 MHz) that emit radiofrequency electromagnetic waves. The link between cell phone usage and men’s health hazards was proven in a number of studies that focused on the male reproductive health.”

Does Technosphere stop humans from sexual replication?
