For smokers and former smokers, the threat of lung cancer always lurks in the shadows. To screen, some decide to get their lungs scanned by a CT machine, which can find a tumor early enough to stop it or set off a false alarm that turns out to be nothing.

Marine photosynthetic organisms produce secondary metabolites that can be considered high-value bioproducts with human health benefits. Algae-derived products possess antioxidant properties, as well as anticancer and antimicrobial activities.
During the past decade, researchers have identified new ways to detect the earliest biological signs of Alzheimer's disease. These early signs, which are detected by biomarkers, may be present before a person starts to exhibit physical symptoms.
The most commonly consumed vitamin and mineral supplements provide no consistent health benefit or harm, suggests a new study led by researchers at St. Michael's Hospital and the University of Toronto.
A new forensic science scandal has hit the criminal justice system with 33 cases involving rapes and serious crimes being urgently reviewed to see if the convictions of those jailed are safe.
In a family where a member has been through cardiac arrest, taking care of their diet is very crucial. This is an issue facing millions of families each year and one of the many to be addressed next month at EuroHeartCare 2018.
A study showed that decreased mechanical loading on bones, such as prolonged bed rest and microgravity during space flights, leads to the development of an osteoporotic-like phenotype. Although osteoblast hypo-functionality is reported to be involved in the progression of bone pathological conditions, the cellular mechanisms of this process remain largely unknown. The combined application of mass spectrometry “–omics” and histochemical and ultrastructural approaches have been employed to investigate the effects of the gravitational unloading on human bone-cell biology.
