Quick links

In the New Yorker: An in-depth profile of anti-GMO activist Vandana Shiva that explores both sides of the debate over genetically modified seeds. As always, I'm struck by the gap between the rhetoric of the experts and the reality on the ground.

From BuzzFeed: A professor at the University of British Columbia has designed a series of evening gowns that draw design inspiration from microscopic images of cancer cells.

From the New York Times: Some Ebola survivors are returning home to a less than warm welcome.

From the Economist: An unexpected link between HIV and multiple sclerosis may open new avenues of treatment.
