Whilst the effect of the microbiome on the digestive system has been studied over the past decade, the understanding of its effect on the endocrine system is less well understood.
 
 Lifestyle Profiling as a Forensic Analysis Technique
 
Lifestyle Profiling as a Forensic Analysis TechniqueLifestyle profiling represents a new method where the chemistries that are obtained from the personal objects of a person are used to build their lifestyle profile. This is then used to infer the person’s location and characteristics which are further applied to various forensic investigations.
 
 
 Metabolomic Profiling of Ricin
 
Metabolomic Profiling of RicinRicin is one of the most toxic substances known to science with an LD50 between 3 and 30 µg/kg in humans. Potentially lethal when inhaled, ingested, or injected, death can occur within 36 to 72 hours upon exposure. Ricin works by preventing the body’s cells from producing essential proteins, which leads to cellular death. There is no known antidote for ricin poisoning.
