Chemical may stop alcohol craving.  If orexin is part of a reward pathway, the interesting question is, how many things is it involved in?  Just alcohol and food intake?  Learning pathways?  Other ‘happiness’ pathways?  Ah, psychopharmacology, you little minx.

As with iocane powder, so with peanuts.

FDA may clear cloned food, but public has little appetite, asserts WashingtonPost.com.  How often has it happened in the past that a new technology is met with fear and other ‘vague emotions,’ but later becomes status quo?  Or, have we hit a point where science has outstripped the intelligence of the common people?  Personally, knowing that my milk was from a cloned cow would go a long way toward the coolness factor of buying milk.
