Philosophy Wire: Heart, genes, “could”…

HEART LOUPhilosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2012-01-24]: Scientists claim that they may be closer to understanding how genes can influence serious heart conditions, says a Nature Genetics report. The failure to turn off a specific gene at the right time in an embryo's development could mean illness later in life [source: BBC News]. “Could”, “may”, “can” are more and more used in the “exact” science of genetics. If anyone else uses the same word, is just… “unscientific” !!!
