Overweight Have A Higher Risk Of Developing Type 2 Diabetes

A new study shows that overweight seven-year-olds have a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes as adults, but only if they are still overweight by the time they hit puberty and beyond. It's well known that overweight in childhood leads to an increased risk of type 2 diabetes later in life.

Antibodies Against ?-Gal are Associated with Malaria Protection, Study Findings

The results, published in Scientific Reports, indicate that a-Gal is an interesting candidate to include in future vaccines against malaria and other infectious diseases.
