Scientists grow mini brains from stem cells
We've seen beating heart tissue, windpipes and bladders all grown from stem cells. Now researchers have taken another important step forward by growing mini brains from these programmable cells. They're not actually functioning brains — in the same way that a car with the engine on its roof or wheels on its hood isn't a drivable vehicle — but the parts are there, and that's an important scientific advancement, according to Juergen Knoblich, senior author of a new study on using stem cells to grow brain tissue.

    Democrats, GOP both against GMO label law
    The Ledger
    Even in politically polarized Washington, Republicans and Democrats appear to unite on a law mandating the disclosure of GMO ingredients on food labels — both sides appear against it. Bills requiring GMO labeling introduced in 2002 in both the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate never got out of subcommittees, said Debra Strauss, a law professor at Fairfield University in Connecticut and an authority on food safety and GMO issues.
