Well the key ride home for monday. April twelfth twenty twenty one. I'm jackson bird. Genetically modified mosquitos are set to be released in florida but will locals thwart the project. A new technology that can three d. print bones directly inside of patients bodies and tiktok our latest great art movements. No really stay with me on this one. Here are some of the cool things from the news today. Genetically modified mosquitos are officially being let loose in florida. Well almost maybe. Biotech company tech will be releasing the genetically modified or g. m. mosquitoes in the florida keys in an effort to combat mosquito borne viruses. Like zepa and dungy mosquitoes in the area are increasingly resistant to other forms of control like insecticide. So other options like gm. Mosquitoes have been long explored quoting dark. Oxyde tech's o x five zero three four. Mosquitoes are programmed to combat the transmission of mosquito borne illnesses. By suppressing local artist aegypti populations occidente. Which is us owned and based in the united kingdom describes their mosquitoes as friendly because they will only release males which unlike females do not bite humans or transmit disease at architects laboratory in the uk. The company genetically engineered the mosquitoes giving the insects. These self limiting gene. That makes the females dependent on the antibiotic tetracycline without the drug. They will die eggs from these genetically altered. Mosquitoes which will hatch both male and female insects will be shipped to the keys. Mosquitoes will require water to mature from an egg to an adult and when architects team adds water to the boxes the mosquitoes will be deployed in both gm males and gm females will hatch with no tetracycline present in the box the gm females are expected to die in larval stages the male mosquitoes will survive and carry the gene and when they leave the boxes the insects will hypothetically flyway to mate with wild females to pass the gene to the next wild generation according to nathan rose head of regulatory affairs at oxford tech. Kevin gorman the company's chief development officer says the local female mosquito population will be increasingly reduced which will also reduce the number of wild male mosquitoes in the treatment areas and quotes but a number of scientists are skeptical of this plan. Jennifer kuzma co founder and co director of the genetic engineering and society center north carolina. State university says that tetracycline antibiotic the females are genetically modified to be dependent on and then deprived of is actually commonly used in florida both at sewage plants in agriculture so the females may still find it and survive. Architect seems to have a long history of not handling the legal and outreach side of things too well even if the science might hold up. Many local residents physicians in environmental activists are concerned on a number of points including oxidants stating of their trial success a lack of transparency on their part and the disregard for the local public opinion for example when oxygen was seeking epa approval and open to the public forum. There were thirty one thousand one hundred seventy four comments in opposition and only fifty six support quoting again. Oxidized has released more than a billion there. Oh x five one three eight mosquitoes over the past ten years. According to independent scientists some of experiments do not go well for example researchers at yale university and collaborators from brazil analyzed oxygen two thousand fifteen release of the olympics five one three in brazil. The scientists confirmed that some offspring of the genetically modified mosquitos which were supposed to die and not pass new genes to the wild population survived to adulthood and made it with their native counterparts. Between ten and sixty percent of the native mosquitoes contain genes from tech. According to yale study which was published in nature in two thousand nineteen the paper's authors concluded. They do not know what impacts these mixed. Mosquitoes have on disease control or transmission but added that their findings underscore the importance of monitoring the genetics of the insects. Oxyde tech disagreed with the findings and responded on the journal's website oxyde told gizmodo that yale's study includes numerous false speculative and unsubstantiated claims and statements about ox text- mosquito technology and quotes ultimately. I think natalie koffler molecular biologist and bioethicist and advocate for inclusive decision. Making with regards to genetic technology sums it up best quote. One of the most upsetting is that the very people who are going to be most impacted both by the benefits or the risks of such decision have like the smallest voice in how these choices are made. I think that's a really big issue. If oxidative doesn't do this right. We could have impacts on delaying the use of other beneficial technologies like that in the future and quotes because yeah the tech here is very cool and sounds quite promising. But if it's not handled well in these early runs could sour public opinion on it in the long run and that would be very disappointing..

"South of egypt and they tell us that you could reach it by land or sea problem is that eastern south of egypt still a lot of open possibilities and so what we can do is we can take bobbins. Living in all of those competing areas somalia. eritrea ethiopia yemen sudan uganda. We can take balloons living in those areas now and we can look at their chemical signatures and create a chemical map. If you will of that region and so then we can match the mummified specimens that are present at the british museum to populations in those areas and the great thing about our announces. We could definitively rule out some places and we showed very strong match to animals living in eritrea and somalia. Today that would be there for the most likely place with the animals were sourced from but do not just think that it could just be. That was a good hunting ground. And they were transported from there to wherever punt bulls. that's right punt was both a kingdom and a in an emporium on the coast so there was a market town or port. And so we think the egyptians would have pulled their ships up to the port and they may have purchased or traded for animals. That were there in the port city But the animals may have been sourced from farther inland. And that makes sense. We think the punt heights new there. They knew their market. They knew their consumers and so they would have gathered animals from farther inland and brought them to the central entrepot for For trade with the egyptians. So how much narrow is the search for punt now in the wake of what you've done much narrower one hundred fifty years scholars have been debating about the possibility of the arabian peninsula. Yemen has always been a strong contender for the location of punt. Some authors have put it in mozambique. Or uganda we can rule those places out and we can say definitively that it was somewhere in africa on the horn of africa. Probably an era and somalia those two places. We can't distinguish between those two places. Which are the two contending places that most scholars agree on and is there any way to nile it. Well and truly. Yes i think so i think if we can turn to ancient dna Turn to some of the other tissues that were coming out of punt if they all start point in the same place and corroborate each other then Then we'll really have something in and obviously archaeology is where we need to go. It would be nice to dig in some of those areas. And if we can find the remains of these ancient places that would be That'd be the clincher. It's like an episode of indiana jones. Isn't it that was nice. Domini on the trail of the lost city of punt which we now know thanks to him. Somewhere south of egypt and he recently published those results in the journal life. Also south of ancient egypt was a land called nubia and archaeologists have made a surprising finding their to signs that the nubians were being exposed to antibiotics human bones recovered from the area glow. Green under uv. Light which is due to tetracycline antibiotic we use today embedded in the bone. The university of cambridge's thomson macconnell is an archaeological scientist. And she's with us to explain the story so thompson. First of all where on earth were ancient nubians getting tetracycline from well. Either they were getting it from things that they were eating drinking. And we think it's an accidental product that gets in and so if they're consuming something like bill o'brien made from grain. That might have site can in it. Then that gets incorporated into their buy ins and the longtime later we get to see glowing under uv light. Why might that be tapped to cycling. Ingrains tetracycline to naturally occurring product of funky and it occurs naturally in funky grow under certain conditions and that can be when grain is stored in slightly damp environment. So if they're having a wheat harvest in putting it in a big grain storage area and you have water that's coming up and going down into the ground than that could make the grain at the bottom. Go slightly moldy. It would still be good enough to eat but it might contain trace levels off tetracycline. I see if they then use that tweet to make biro bread than they're going to be accidentally eating tetracycline. So then how does it take to get from being eaten as bread to being incorporated into bone so tetracycline. It's quite a big molecule and is gonna ring structure in a carbon chains and it structured loves to bond to calcium. And there's a lot of calcium in your bones and so as burns growing as this calcium phosphate which is in your benz is being laid down. If there's something in your bloodstream that likes to bond to it. Then it will just be close stuck in there and it will hang around forever so does not mean that you've ever taken tetracycline. Then you have some glowing bones. Yes pretty well said the bits of your bones that were being remade remodelled day. That when you were taking tetracycline or any similar sorts of antibiotic includes things like doxycycline which is an antimalarial. Those bits of your bones will blow if you could get them out and look at them on. Dvd light so maybe try to avoid that fennell. Then how do we know that. The tetracycline got into the bone because it was incorporated by the bono throughout their lifetime rather than it got into the bone through some sort of contamination because it has been thousands of years. That is a really good question whenever we find anything in archaeological samples. We have to question whether or not it's naturally occurring. It came in during the individual's lifetime or if it came in later on and the shape of the glowing lines within the bones tells us that it looks like it's sort of on the face of a bone cell being formed rather than percolating in contamination. Later on i see so sort of just in the right place to mean or i got in there because it was being incorporated officially as part of bone robin randomly slapped on afterwards. Yes it's worth saying. That tetris can is used as a label in modern day..

"So really, you know, there's lots of different ways, you can treat it on a lot of it essentially comes down to what the main issue is whether it's readiness whether it's spokes whether it's sensitivity of whether it's flushing. So I think it was any diet worth while speaking to adult Eurodemo biters. Okay. So I have one thing that I do kind of want to bring up. So you said tetracyclene which is an antibiotic. I actually was on it when I was a teenager. And I recently went to see a nutritionist and one of the questions she said was have you ever had tetracyclene because it can be such a strong antibiotic on your guts show. So this is a common concern, and one of the things I would say about the tetracycline onto politics that we use for Rosa. So I use them equal doxycycline, and I use in low dose, and what's interesting about the tetracycline antibiotics as a high dose they have an antibacterial or an antibiotic effect, but at low dose, they have an anti inflammatory effect. So in RAs Asia using it for its anti inflammatory reasons. So you'll using at a much lower dose than you would use it the other conditions. So I think that's a much more gentle on your guts. In response. The second part of your question about tetracycline 's and the effect on the gods. Well, I don't think you should be on antibiotics for prolonged periods of time. I don't think there's an issue being on the for about three months. Four months. I think any longer than that we do need to be reassessing what we're doing an ID normally lot prescribing for longer lengths because of issues with not just messing about with a gut microbiome, but also resistance as well. So then when you do need to use them. They don't do what let's post today. Right. And what about things like birth control? Does it really help with things like acne? Yes. So certain pills almost. Friendly than others, but the combined oral contraceptive pill so the pill that contains eastern and progesterone can be helpful acne. But it does take time to work. So if you've been put on contraception for your skin, you need to give it at least two to three months to see if it's what can so that brings me to my next question from mom Oko, and she says, I tend to get hormonal breakouts on my chin and neck area. What's the best skin care for ornamental breakouts? I get that as well. And it sucks. I hate it. Yeah. And you know, the worst thing about it is actually affects most women as a result of this song, Kohl's, and that's partly because as women we have lots of home as we have eastern and progesterone, but we also have testosterone, the male hormone and testosterone, the male hormone is what drives that game and just before period is ju- all levels of eastern and progesterone drop a completely plummets, but I'll levels of testosterone stay the same throughout the month, relatively speaking. So what happens just before your period is ju- is that relatively. Speaking, you'll levels of testosterone a much higher than the levels of your female hormones, and that's what causes people to break out in the run-up to basically cycles. So in terms of what you can do what I would say is that a lot of people find the skin can be slightly more oily from ovation onwards. So in the second half of this cycle. So from day fourteen today twenty eight and that might be the time, we're really you all taking extra cash using your alpha, and you'll be two hydroxy acids and you'll skin cat to make sure that your decongesting your skin. You're getting rid of any black heads on. Also, a soon as you feel a hint of any spots coming up. It's worth while using something like two percent salicylic acid product directly onto the spoils to shrink them dying. If that doesn't help then it might be worth Bo going to see your GP, and they'll be able to give you a prescription retinoids over peroxide that you can put directly onto the spots. So basically, Utah get them as soon as they come up. Okay. And this is a completely unrelated question and. Topic?.

"So I think the key here actually is chemicals in themselves on dangerous. It's the dose of the chemical that is potentially dangerous. Okay. So the argument I have is isn't the skin the largest Oregon isn't this where we're absorbing all these chemicals and isn't going into the bloodstream. Yes. So that's I think that's a really interesting question. And one of the things that I see on the internet as your skin will absorb sixty percent of what you put onto it. That's not true. You'll skin actually you'll skins main function is it's a barrier. It is actually there to keep good things in and bad things. So very little of what you actually put onto the skin is absorbed and taken into your bloodstream to cause any issues. So the very top layer of your skin the epidemic. The very top layer of your epidermis is fifteen to twenty layers of dead skin cells known as you'll straw, some cornea very very few skin kept products can actually penetrate through the start in Coney, m the dead cells into the living cells then into the deep pods like the dumbest to then transfer themselves to other parts of the body. It's just scientifically physiologically an anatomically it doesn't happen. I mean, I have to say it's pretty hard to argue with you when you're using so many scientific terms. Well, the Gino though, I think like I said the ultimate key. Here though, is actually we are Beria. I'll skin is a Woking barrier. It doesn't want to let things in on the biggest. Challenge that cosmetic. Scientists have is to formulate products like can get into the skin. Okay. So this question is from Claire longtime listener first-time caller here. Can you help a girl out? I find there's relatively little information online about rose Atia are the types of redness people can experience on their skin. I for one have like localize renaissance skin. But not that aggravated acne like rose Asia that people online describe as your typical definition of rose Asia. Can you just let me know where people like me who have redness what can we do to treat it? And where do we start? I know it has to do with my skin's barrier strength or something. But I just don't know. Thanks. Yeah. Absolutely. So relationships are very common skin problem. It tends to affect women more than men at it normally develops in very fast skinned women that normally the kind of may. Group that you tend to see it in a normally starts from kind of let you late twenties onwards, and what you tend to get with it is sensitive skin. Sometimes a tendency towards a bit of dryness in a bit of scaling the skin itself. Can look like having spokes which are quite similar to acne. You can get redness, and you can get flushing. So you suddenly become really bright red at the drop of a hat, and that could be in relation to food that can be in relation to alcohol and also temperatures are going from a hot room to a cold room. And it's basically because the blood vessels in the skin a much more reactive than they should be. They getting bigger and smaller at the drop of a hat, and that's why the skin ends up being quite sensitive today's and treating it can be quite tricky as well again. There's no magic cure for it. Sure is a condition that once you've got it. You're always going to have it. So we can control it. But we can't cure it permanently. And in terms of treatments when you try and look at rose Atia treatments. You're looking at multiple ways that you try. To control the different facets that you see. So if the main issue is readiness than treatment for that would be with a like device like IP L, intense pulse light or with a laser pulse style. As if the issue is spots than we tend to use prescription tablets, so things like tetracycline antibiotics or Accutane can be really helpful. If the problem is sensitivity and very sensitive skin. You wanna basically stay away from products that contain fragrances and a large number of ingredients, you won't stuff to be as bland as possible. Over eighty percent of people that have resigned. Should that result is triggered by ultraviolet light from the sun? So you have to wear an SPF fifty every single day of the on. That includes the winter months that is the single biggest thing that you can do from skin kept point of view to prevent the you getting worse over time..
