  • Half of the planet's population are potential x-men

    An ancient mutation that spread through humans after the advent of cooking may protect people against high blood sugar and diabetes today, scientists have said.

    Researchers at University College London (UCL) discovered the mutation while studying a gene called CLTCL1, which is heavily involved in removing sugar from the bloodstream.

    While a certain amount of blood sugar is necessary to provide energy to the brain and other organs, too much leads to type 2 diabetes, where the body loses its ability to control how much sugar is circulating.

    The scientists found that about half the world’s population carries a mutation that helps the body to clear sugar from the circulation more effectively than in the past.

    The next movie should be about Diabeto saving the world.

    That being said, does somebody remember the X-Men movie where Prof Xavier and Wolverine had these funny costumes?

    There was a character in Misfits who had the power of Lactokinesis. He would kill people by controlling the lactose in their bloodstream.

    He was defeated by a character with lactose intolerance and so was immune to his powers.

            Some character can manipulate lactose content but is defeated by someone who dies (or get seriously sick when confronted with lactose) ???? My head has a problem to accept the logic.
            With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.
