Here's the latest science news that's worth noting:

My clone did it

Our faith in science is now restored! It turns out that Korean stem cell researcher Hwang Woo-suk actually didn't fake his research. His clone did. "The fact that my clone faked this research on stem cells," explained Mr. Hwang, "is proof that my cloning process works." Mr. Hwang is now making arrangements to have his clone fired so that he can get back to the job of fooling prestigious scientific journals (which are busy printing retractions so fast they're suffering from paper cuts).

New non-violent weapons technology

A new weapons system developed by Raytheon is earning great praise from military officials: it's a non-violent weapon that doesn't kill people, it just makes them stupid (like a frontal lobotomy EMP weapon). Unfortunately, the first test detonation of the weapon took place over Washington D.C. while Congress was in session. The good news is that nobody could tell the difference.

Give me back that Brad Pitt memory!

In intellectual property news, the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) is pushing new copyright legislation that would make it a felony crime to actually remember watching any movies whatsoever. The argument? "By opening your eyes, you are making a copy of the movie in your memory." That copy, the MPAA insists, is a bootleg copy. To solve the problem, cinemas will now be outfitted with memory wiping devices that lobotomize movie memories as customers leave the theaters. The MPAA also believes the new technology, "...will be great for repeat business" since movie-goers won't be able to remember whether they saw movies or not. The new legislation is named "the Entertainment Preservation and Eco-Green Civil Rights Reforestation Clean Earth Anti-Terrorism Patriotic Duty Happy Happy People Act" of 2006 and is expected to pass with unanimous support in Washington.

Dogs sniff out cancer

Dogs have now been trained to sniff out breast cancer and lung cancer just by smelling a person's breath (no kidding). With a 90% accuracy rate, the process surpasses the best cancer-detection technology invented by scientists. To take the breakthrough one step further, dogs are now being trained to sniff out fraudulent non-profits in the cancer industry. The first potential targets? National breast cancer foundations that ignore low-cost prevention strategies and use silly pink ribbons as patient recruiting tools for Big Medicine (all while accepting millions of dollars in "gift money" from drug companies and mammogram manufacturers).

Mars rovers get pity squeegee wipes

The Mars rovers, which should have stopped functioning six months ago, are still rambling across the red planet thanks to their solar panels, which have been repeatedly cleaned and washed by some unknown phenomenon. NASA scientists, who are not easily fooled, are nonetheless baffled by the longevity of the rovers, although a recent stream of captured images might hold some clues: They appear to show scrawny Martian humanoids hobbling towards the rovers with dingy towels and a squeegee.

This is intelligent design?

The recent science debate over intelligent design vs. evolution has divided the country into two cranky camps: those who think the human body is an imperfect result of millions of years of chance mutation, versus those who insist that male nipples actually have a dignified purpose because they're all part of an "intelligent design." The latter group is also working on plausible design explanations for the tailbone (actual tails, too, in 1% of newborns), annoying body hair, and, of course, that utterly useless pinky toenail. There's also the curious question of why any intelligently-designed biological form would still have to cram food, water and air down the same hole (that's the big pie hole in your face, nitwit). At least the food goes out somewhere else. But the used air returns the same way it went in! How stupid is that? Hey, insects have better oxygen intake systems than humans...

Dark matter found!

For nearly a century, scientists have told us that 96% of the matter in the universe is mysteriously undetectable or just plain missing. But this "dark matter" has just been found in the pockets of miscreant lobbyist Jack Abramoff, who was apparently collecting both money and dark matter in order to build a black hole larger than the U.S. national debt. This monumental task would have obviously violated Einstein's special law of relativity, which states that no person can accumulate wealth faster than their government can spend it.

The quantum Bush computer?

Scientists at the National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST) in Boulder, Colorado, have succeeded in building an 8-qubit quantum computer that literally solves complex mathematical algorithms in an alternate universe, then "renders" the right answer in this one, where the observers are located (no kidding). As a side experiment, the team also recently built a "Bush quantum computer" that sends mathematical challenges and word problems into the alternate universe of the Bush Administration. So far, no answer has been received, but the White House did hint it was planning to declare war on quantum computing to see if troops might solve the problem.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
