Research chemicals and experimentation and side effects

Research chemicals supplies are those substances or chemicals which are not studied in detail. Research chemical also refers that some substances or chemicals are tested in labs in test tube or in animal studies on basic levels to get to know about their properties and their usage in different drugs.

Some of the research chemicals are relatively new in market or under observational tests, whereas others have been there for long period of time, however adequate research is not conducted on them with special emphasis on health hazards of particular chemical. Diminutive information is drawn from them, which is only considered as primary psycho nautical report. Limited or absolutely no research has been gathered on the toxic effects of these chemicals. Very few or no researches based on animal or human studies are conducted on these chemicals. Many scientists and chemical researchers have suggested terming these chemicals as unsearched chemicals. Also these chemicals are also known with term of experimental chemicals. The term experimental chemical is considered more appropriate as the associated risks related to ingesting are yet to discover.

Research chemicals are dangerous to ingest as their properties are unknown. Their health risk is far higher than the ones studied earlier. It would be accurate to say that research chemicals are confirmed dangerous, but the fact lies in the little or no prior knowledge about these chemicals. Their usage in high quantities is not observed in people on large scale, therefore the degree of damage because of their consumption cannot be concluded. By taking an un-experimented drug or chemical, a person makes himself an experiment. It is possible that the drug may be safe and even beneficial in some cases, but it is also possible that after taking repeated episodes of same drug, the person starts facing the freezing of body like symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.

By taking a research chemical, a person is putting himself in a blind alley, and he can be unlucky to face the new chemical’s toxic dosage. He may also get addicted to it. And if he ends up in the hospital due to drug over dosage, doctors may only figure out the treatment of that particular drug over dose. People on psychoactive drugs for long time may experience drug over dose accidentally, and the consequences of research chemicals are hard to guess beforehand.

Sometimes it happens that people relate a research chemical with well known chemical on bases of similar or near to similar chemical composition. However, the under studied chemical can never be guaranteed no matter how much it resembles the known chemical, until or unless the research chemical is studied properly.

Different research chemicals may have different side effects, and mostly are not known properly. Stronger and prominent side effects of drugs can be discovered quickly by self experimentation. However before self experimentation, one should investigate it thoroughly. Information can be gathered through journals, books and primary reports. One can also ask the people who been through researches themselves or have been part of the research team.

One should buy research chemicals from credible sources only. Fake chemicals cannot be researched properly.. Quality research chemicals are for sale here. Other than general research chemicals, the researchers can also buy 4CMC for sale from this online chemical selling website.

GM foods

I really get frustrated by the so-called “greenies” who campaign against GM (genetically modified) foods, on the basis that they are unsafe, underresearched, and “unnatural”. Obviously, there is a chance that when you change some genes to get a desired result, you might produce unexpected side affects, but this isn’t really anything more than what might happen in evolution naturally – some genes mutate, it produces a favourable or unfavourable result(s), and natural selection kicks in from there. Most of the GM foods, crops and plants that we’ve created have resulted in very useful products (e.g., needing much less pesticide, being easier/quicker to grow, etc).

So, when I saw a news story about GM crops making mice sick, I thought that this would be just the fodder the greenies (and probably the media!) needed. But I was pleasantly surprised to see the spin that the researchers had put on it – that the safeguards and testing procedures around GM crops are working, and that any product which does make it to market is going to be safe. Very clever!

On the subject of environmental groups, I really wish there was a group run by scientists, or at least scientifically educated people. Greenpeace does some good work, but they also do some rubbish – protesting against GM foods on principle, their “nuclear power is evil” stance (I’m not saying it’s the solution to our power needs, but isn’t it better to have your waste stored in a single, controlled location, rather than spread throughout our entire atmosphere?) and so forth. They’re kind of extremist, and that really turns me off.

Anyway, the upshot of the news report was that a 10 year research project into genetically modified peas produced a crop that was almost completely resistant to insect attacks, but had the side of effect of giving some mice chest infections. Hence, the project is being scrapped – which is pretty amazing, given the time and money put into it. Good on the group for being ethically sound!

Who you gonna call? Wasps!

Just when you thought insects could get any more amazing (you didn’t know insects were amazing?!) researchers have found that a certain type of wasp (non-stinging, no less!) has a sense of smell at least as good as a hound dog, and is able to be trained in 5 minutes to detect and respond to as specific smell! The result? The Wasp Hound, a plastic tube containing 5 wasps and a sensor that monitors their motion. When they detect a scent, they gather near the vent setting off the sensor! They envision the wasps as being used for detecting explosives at airports, toxins in crops, and even detect diseases by measuring chemicals in a person’s breath!

One neat thing is how they trained the wasps – “hungry” wasps are exposed to the desired scent, then fed sugar water. Wait, repeat two times and bingo – your wasps are fully trained! The wasps would have a 48 hour shift before being released to live out the rest of the 2-3 week lifespan.

And these guys aren’t the only ones doing insect research – another group has been exploring fitting a tiny transmitter to bees, which have been trained to detect explosives, drugs or other chemicals of interest. They point out that their bees are better than the wasps for open area searching, but not quite so good for crowded airports given that the bees can roam free… This all seems to be part of a growing field of using insects as “biological sensors” – guess it won’t be long before having computer bugs is a good thing!
