Download PDF In the debate of low-fat versus low-carb diets, both can help you shed unwanted weight equally, as long as you’re choosing healthy options. But it turns out a diet composed of fewer carbs and higher amounts of saturated fat might actually have health benefits outside of weight loss — better blood cholesterol levels. […]Continue Reading ...
Download PDF Here’s to sipping a cupful of health: Green tea steeped in bottled water has a more bitter taste, but it has more antioxidants than tea brewed using tap water, according to new Cornell University food science research published in Nutrients. In tests conducted at Cornell’s Sensory Evaluation Center, consumers liked green tea brewed […]Continue Reading ...
Download PDF Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States. While the number of cases diagnosed is on the rise, the overall survival rate has improved, but survival is uneven across the country. Researchers at University of Utah Health conducted a state-by-state analysis to understand the geographic disparities for patients diagnosed with […]Continue Reading ...
Download PDF Jan 16 2019 As cancer cells respond to cues in their microenvironment, they can enter a highly plastic state in which they are susceptible to transdifferentiation into a different type of cell. Researchers at the University of Basel in Switzerland exploited this critical phase, known as an epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT), to coax breast […]Continue Reading ...
Download PDF Feeding behavior and social stimulation activate intermingled but distinct brain circuits, and activating one circuit can inhibit the other, according to a new study by researchers at Stanford University. The researchers demonstrated in mice that direct stimulation of fewer than two dozen nerve cells, or neurons, linked to social interaction was enough to […]Continue Reading ...
Download PDF A component has been identified by researchers in Umeå as a novel regulator of the immune system. It acts as a molecular switch to deactivate the innate immune system and has the ability to prevent certain diseases caused by an excessive activation of the immune system. This is shown in a new doctoral […]Continue Reading ...

Download PDF Credit: CC0 Public Domain Disorders of the autistic spectrum have been associated with hundreds of genetic variations, which have helped in identifying disturbed intracellular signalling pathways and molecular mechanisms typical to autism. Many gene mutations related to the autism spectrum disorders reside in a gene that produces a protein relevant to synapses, or […]Continue Reading ...

Download PDF Two new mouse models of uterine cancer shed light on how this disease – the most common gynecological cancer in the U.S. – happens. Led by researchers at Baylor College of Medicine, the team of scientists found that the Transforming Growth Factor beta (TGF-beta) signaling pathway in uterine cells protects against the disease […]Continue Reading ...
Download PDF FRIDAY, Jan. 11, 2019 — Three classes of drugs hold potential as repurposed agents to treat patients with serious mental illness, according to a study published online Jan. 9 in JAMA Psychiatry. Joseph F. Hayes, Ph.D., from University College London, and colleagues evaluated the repurposing of hydroxylmethyl glutaryl coenzyme A reductase inhibitors (HMG-CoA […]Continue Reading ...
Download PDF Scrolling through the GoFundMe website reveals seemingly an endless number of people who need help or community support. A common theme: the cost of health care. It didn’t start out this way. Back in 2010, when the crowdfunding website began, it suggested fundraisers for “ideas and dreams,” “wedding donations and honeymoon registry” or […]Continue Reading ...
