Scientists have shed light on how a major cause of human and animal disease can jump between species, by studying its genes. The findings reveal fresh insights into how new disease-causing strains of the bacteria – called Staphylococcus aureus – emerge.
The researcher suggests that a growing body function optimally when we align our eating patterns with our circadian rhythms. Nutrition scientists have long debated the best diet for optimal health. But now some experts believe that it’s not just what we eat that’s critical for good health, but when we eat it.

A new treatment for pain caused by endometriosis was approved Tuesday by U.S. regulators. The common condition involves abnormal tissue growth from the uterus that can cause severe pain and infertility
Some 18 million years ago, an ancestor of mouse-eared bats 'stole' genetic material from an ancient virus related to Ebola. The swiped genetic sequence — a gene called VP35 — has remained largely intact in the bats despite the passage of time, a new study finds. The research also sheds light on the gene's possible function in bats, suggesting that it may play a role in regulating the immune system's response to threats.
Many advertisements, articles, and reports make bold statements regarding sunless tanning products sprays, ointments, creams, foams, or lotions that promise tan skin without the increased risk of skin cancer that goes along with outdoor sunbathing or indoor tanning.
Few studies have investigated this topic and Health, to question whether he should recommend sunless tanners to his patients. In the study "Characteristics and Skin Cancer Risk Behaviors of Adult Sunless Tanners in the United States." The study was published in JAMA Dermatology.
