Once-useful Gene Now has Negative Health Impacts

In individuals living in the Arctic, researchers have discovered a genetic variant that arose thousands of years ago and most likely provided an evolutionary advantage for processing high-fat diets or for surviving in a cold environment. However, the variant also seems to increase the risk of hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar, and infant mortality in today's northern populations.

Study Reveals Secrets of Carbonic Acid

Thumbnail
Carbonic acid, the hydrated form of carbon dioxide, is critical to both the health of the atmosphere and the human body. However, because it exists for only a fraction of a second before changing into a mix of hydrogen and bicarbonate ions, carbonic acid has remained an enigma. Now, a study has yielded valuable information about carbonic acid with important implications for both geological and biological concerns.
