Watercress extract taken multiple times a day significantly inhibits the activation of a tobacco-derived carcinogen in cigarette smokers, researchers demonstrated in a phase II clinical trial.
CRISPRainbow, a new technology using CRISPR/Cas9, allows researchers to tag and track up to seven different genomic locations in live cells. This labeling system will be a valuable tool for studying the structure of the genome in real-time.
Mouse embryos completely developed in 96 hours aboard a Chinese satellite, according to state media of the Peoples’ Republic. The progress of the rodent cells aboard the SJ-10 recoverable satellite is the first example Earth mammals can procreate beyond our world.
Researchers have found that men who consume diets high in fat are more likely to feel sleepy during the day, to report sleep problems at night and are also more likely to suffer from sleep apnea.

Palaeontologists and the famous Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz were once in search of the same thing: a heart. But in the case of Flinders University researchers, it was the search for a fossilized heart. And now they've found one.
Instead of just setting coal afire, thus ignoring the molecular complexity of this highly varied material, we should be harnessing the real value of that diversity and complex chemistry, a researcher argues.
Researchers have pinpointed the area of the brain responsible for recognizing human facial expressions. It's on the right side of the brain behind the ear, in a region called the posterior superior temporal sulcus.
Dark chocolate has already been hailed for its positive effects on cardiovascular health – and now a study has found the tasty treat could help give sports enthusiasts an extra edge in their fitness training.
Virtual and augmented reality have the potential to profoundly impact our society, but the technologies have a few bugs to work out to better simulate realistic visual experience.
Scientists have captured unprecedented images of a recent solar flare, including bright flare ribbons seen crossing a sunspot followed by “coronal rain,” plasma that condenses in the cooling phase shortly after the flare.
Americans used less energy overall in 2015 than the previous year, according to the most recent energy flow charts released by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
A recent study has identified specific intake levels of xanthohumol, a natural flavonoid found in hops, that significantly improved some of the underlying markers of metabolic syndrome in laboratory animals and also reduced weight gain.
