According to the research, people living near oil and gas facilities along Colorado's Northern Front Range may be exposed to hazardous air pollutants, including carcinogens like benzene, that could pose health risks above levels deemed acceptable by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
A study determined the successful growth and study gut bacteria in the lab. They report on the nutritional preferences and growth characteristics of 96 diverse gut bacterial strains. Their results will help scientists worldwide advance our understanding of the gut microbiome.
A Yale-led research team developed a new RNA therapy, delivered through the nose, to treat mice infected with West Nile Virus. The innovative approach reduced the virus in the brain, allowing the immune system to destroy the virus and develop long-term protection against West Nile Virus disease, the researchers said.
An international team of researchers has identified genetic links between amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and frontotemporal dementia, a rare disorder marked by deterioration in behavior and personality, language disturbances, and poor impulse control
According to a study, researchers examined that a patients mucus may predict the type of his or her chronic sinusitis, which could help doctors determine whether surgery or medical treatments can produce the best outcomes.

Approximately half a million Danes are currently prescribed some ACE inhibitor to reduce their blood pressure. Worldwide, that number is around 40 million. Sometimes, this type of medication can cause life-threatening, swelling of the head and neck area.
In the present study, investigators explained that part of the problem is that diabetes impairs the ability of kidney cells to consume the garbage they generate in the process of filtering more than 100 quarts of your blood daily, called autophagy
A new study from The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA), explores little-known fungal infections caused by the fungus Cryptococcus. There are currently no vaccines available for any fungal infection, which can be extremely fatal to patients under therapy for diseases like HIV, AIDS and cancer. Researchers suggest that more studies are required to develop an effective solution to these infections.
A poor diet and other risk factors result in liver disease. This crucial metabolic organ could become fatty and inflamed. In the long term, this might result in irreversible and life-threatening organ damage (cirrhosis of the liver or 'shrunken liver').
The study is a groundbreaking research of the University of Otago which is showing potential to restore fertility in women suffering polycystic ovary syndrome
Researchers have speculated that raising eyebrows and other facial expressions evolved as the shape and structure of the face of men changed with time making them smaller and flatter. Early Homo sapiens had thick bone brows; this made raising eyebrows and a host of other facial expressions difficult for them. With the passage of time evolution took its course and the brows smoothened. The study was published in the latest issue of the journal Nature Ecology & Evolution.
