... The data from the images was collected over 360 heart beats in 7 minutes with each beat divided into 24 intervals for analysis. The end diastolic radioactivity detected from the left ventricle was 6400 counts and the end systolic was 3600 counts. Upon calibration the heart was found to eject an ...

Re: question on sequencing

How come the first bases are bad? Also, if you don't have a machine and incorporate radioactivity into your DNA, the short molecules will have weak signals.

plants' intelligence (neurosensing)

... like Signal transduction. Just look for plant neurobiology on Google and you will find plenty of articles. BTW flowing electrons are beta radioactivity, so I highly doubt there were any electrons coming from that man. Did they attempt to measure the floating electricity? They could sense ...

AIDS – a tritium disease?

... following conclusions: 1. The likelihood of tritium being a cause of any kind of ills is very small, simply because it is low-danger in terms of radioactivity, little in number in the atmosphere and virtually non-existant in organic material (organisms ect.). 2. HIV and AIDS are definitely linked, ...

Re: Re:

... irrespectively of the presence of anything special (including tritium) ergo, there is no link between tritium and AIDS. There is a basal level of radioactivity on earth (will vary depending on where you live), I seriously doubt that the amount of tritium is a significant contributor, as compared ...
