New research published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology, has shown that drinking a concentrated rosemary extract drink, No 1 Rosemary Water, can boost cognitive and memory performance by up to 15%. The research conducted by Dr Mark Moss at Northumbria University, is the first piece to be published on the benefit of drinking rosemary extract. […]Continue Reading ...
A new study led by York University researchers has found that fluoride levels in urine are twice as high for pregnant women living in Canadian cities where fluoride is added to public drinking water as for those living in cities that do not add fluoride to public water supplies. The study “Community Water Fluoridation and […]Continue Reading ...
More than 1.5 million Michigan residents and potentially more than hundreds of sites nationwide ¬- and counting – have PFAS-tainted water. Michigan State University-Fraunhofer USA, Inc. Center for Coatings and Diamond Technologies (MSU-Fraunhofer) is developing a scalable treatment option for PFAS-contaminated wastewater. PFAS, or per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, are colloquially known as “forever chemicals” because […]Continue Reading ...
Rice University scientists have developed something akin to the Venus’ flytrap of particles for water remediation. Micron-sized spheres created in the lab of Rice environmental engineer Pedro Alvarez are built to catch and destroy bisphenol A (BPA), a synthetic chemical used to make plastics. The research is detailed in the American Chemical Society journal Environmental […]Continue Reading ...
The discovery of lead in Flint, Michigan’s drinking water drew renewed attention to the health risks posed by the metal. Now researchers at the University of Houston have created an inexpensive system using a smartphone and a lens made with an inkjet printer that can detect lead in tap water at levels commonly accepted as […]Continue Reading ...
In the controlled trial, women who drank an additional 1.5 liters of water daily experienced 48 percent fewer repeat bladder infections than those who drank their usual volume of fluids, said senior author Dr. Yair Lotan, Professor of Urology and with the Simmons Cancer Center at UT Southwestern. The participants self-reported their usual volume as […]Continue Reading ...
New 3D maps of water distribution during cellular membrane fusion are accelerating scientific understanding of cell development, which could lead to new treatments for diseases associated with cell fusion. Using neutron diffraction at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, researchers have made the first direct observations of water in lipid bilayers used to […]Continue Reading ...
Shifting to a healthy diet is not only good for us, but it also saves a lot of precious fresh water, according to a new study by the JRC published in Nature Sustainability. Compared to existing diets, the water required to produce our food could be reduced by between 11% and 35% for healthy diets […]Continue Reading ...
A study by the UPV/EHU-University of the Basque Country could facilitate the design of more effective tools for detecting tumors The UPV/EHU’s Department of Physical Chemistry and the Biofísika Institute have conducted a multidisciplinary study of the Tn antigen that appears in 90% of cancers. Two variants that appear to be similar but which have […]Continue Reading ...
The fluoridation of America’s drinking water was among the great public health achievements of the twentieth century but there is a scarcity of studies from the last three decades investigating the impact of water fluoridation on dental health in the U.S. population. A recent study “Water fluoridation and dental caries in U.S. children and adolescents,” […]Continue Reading ...
MONDAY, Oct. 1, 2018 — Women plagued by recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs) may look no farther than their kitchen tap for relief, a new study suggests. Researchers found that women who drank plenty of water had a significant reduction in their odds for a recurrence of the common infections. “This study provides convincing evidence […]Continue Reading ...
To prevent recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs), women often drink more water. However, this common activity not previously backed up by research. Now, University of Miami researchers have shown that drinking enough water can halve the risk of developing a UTI in pre-menopausal women. Image Credit: Cozine / Shutterstock Urinary tract infections are more common […]Continue Reading ...
To rapidly detect the presence of E. coli in drinking water, Cornell University food scientists now can employ a bacteriophage – a genetically engineered virus – in a test used in hard-to-reach areas around the world. Rather than sending water samples to laboratories and waiting days for results, this new test can be administered locally […]Continue Reading ...
Helping kids do what’s best for them isn’t always easy, but at least when it comes to encouraging schoolchildren to make healthy beverage choices, it may be more straightforward than we think. As a recent story for Insights by Stanford Business explains, Stanford marketing specialist Szu-chi Huang, PhD, and a group of researchers collaborated with UNICEF to determine the […]Continue Reading ...
First, according to Rice University engineers, get a nanotube hole. Then insert water. If the nanotube is just the right width, the water molecules will align into a square rod. Rice materials scientist Rouzbeh Shahsavari and his team used molecular models to demonstrate their theory that weak van der Waals forces between the inner surface […]Continue Reading ...
