Tree Nuts Reduce Risk of Cardiovascular Disease

November 19, 2015 2:17 pm | by Edelman Seattle | News | Comments

A new study found that consuming tree nuts, such as walnuts, may lower the risk of cardiovascular disease. Consuming tree nuts lowers total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL cholesterol and ApoB, the primary protein found in LDL cholesterol, the study shows.


Space: The Next Frontier for Life Science Research

November 19, 2015 2:12 pm | by Michael Roberts, Senior Research Scientist, Center for the Advancement of Science in Space | Articles | Comments

Since mankind’s first voyage into space, research and discovery have continued to unlock the mysteries and potential of this vast frontier beyond Earth’s borders. Today, scientific exploration continues to evolve, unveiling new opportunities to enhance and expand the scope of life science through microgravity studies.


Technology Produces Hydrogen without Carbon Dioxide Emissions

November 19, 2015 2:06 pm | by Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT) | News | Comments

The production of energy from natural gas without generating carbon dioxide emissions could fast become a reality, thanks to a novel technology. Instead of burning methane, its molecular components can be separated in a process called 'methane cracking'. This reaction occurs at high temperatures and does not release any harmful emissions.


NIH to Release Last Remaining Research Chimps into Retirement

November 19, 2015 1:54 pm | by Seth Augenstein, Digital Reporter | News | Comments

The final 50 chimpanzees held for research purposes in the U.S. are being released – a development cheered by animal-rights groups, but bemoaned by advocates of animal research. The announcement comes two months after the chimps held in captivity were declared endangered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.


Weird Science: Pigeons Look at Mammograms, Diagnose Cancer

November 19, 2015 11:03 am | by Seth Augenstein, Digital Reporter | Videos | Comments

Eight pigeons stood in little boxes for weeks, looking at mammograms, pecking at the screen to diagnose whether breast masses are malignant or benign. Using the flock’s aggregate intelligence, they reached accuracies of 99 percent in picking out the most dangerous tumors.

Turing Pharmaceuticals, the company that upped the price of a life-saving drug for parasitic infection by 5,000 percent, has just reported a quarterly loss of $14.6 million. The loss was made between July and the end of September.


Researchers Build Bones with Transformed Stem Cells

November 19, 2015 9:33 am | by University of North Carolina Health Care | News | Comments

Imagine you have a bone fracture or a hip replacement, and you need bone to form, but you heal slowly - a common fact of life for older people. Instead of forming bone, you could form fat. Researchers may have found a way to tip the scale in favor of bone formation.


Secret Light Communication Between Marine Animals Uncovered

November 19, 2015 9:22 am | by University of Queensland | News | Comments

Researchers have uncovered a new form of secret light communication used by marine animals. The findings may have applications in satellite remote sensing, biomedical imaging, cancer detection and computer data storage.


Infusing Nanocomposites with Styrofoam to Test Toughness

November 19, 2015 9:09 am | by Stanford University | News | Comments

Engineers are testing the limits of toughness in nanocomposites by infusing them with polystyrene, the same material in a Styrofoam cup. In the future, the wings of jets could be as light as balsa wood, yet stronger than the toughest metal alloys. That’s the promise of nanocomposite materials.


Tropical Fossil Forests Unearthed in Arctic

November 19, 2015 8:51 am | by Cardiff University | News | Comments

Researchers have unearthed ancient fossil forests, thought to be partly responsible for one of the most dramatic shifts in the Earth’s climate in the past 400 million years. The fossil forests, with tree stumps preserved in place, were found in a Norwegian archipelago situated in the Arctic Ocean.
