NASA says Meteor brings possible miracle medicine
I have been researching a story about the possible viability of a chemical called Isovaline in the treatment of pain. A discovery so profound that it could change the face of medicine forever. NASA has confirmed that the Murchison meteor contains a unique chemical compound called Isovaline, a compound that has since been synthesized at the University of British Columbia with very promising results. In this I ask chief scientist Dr. Ernie Puil, Ph.D of Neuropharmacology and Neurosciece at UBC, why would a meteor land on earth with a previously unknown and possible miracle medicine. Is this a message in a bottle from a distant planet or Galaxy? Is this a sign of something even more intriguing to come? are we finally going to say goodbye to pain?
