Testosterone makes men less likely to question their impulses

Testosterone makes men less likely to realize when they’re wrong, a new study shows. The researchers found that men given doses of testosterone performed more poorly on a test designed to measure cognitive reflection than a group given a placebo….

Unravelling the mystery of DNA attacks in cells' powerhouse could pave way for new cancer treatments

A five-year study has found the mechanism responsible for repairing damage to mitochondrial DNA. This discovery could pave the way for new treatments for cancer and neurodegenerative diseases, say the researchers. This research may also have important implications for clinical advances in so called ‘three-parent baby’ mitochondrial donation….

Crème Brûlée – Vegan & Gluten Free

A perfect vegan vanilla crème brûlée is pretty hard to beat, wouldn’t you agree? Crème brûlée has a reputation for being fancy, but it’s actually a fairly simple concoction. And even […]

Zika virus persists in the central nervous system and lymph nodes of rhesus monkeys

Zika virus can persist in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), lymph nodes and colorectal tissue of infected rhesus monkeys for weeks after the virus has been cleared from blood, urine and mucosal secretions, according to a study….

Helpful tool allows physicians to more accurately predict parathyroid cancer recurrence

A newly-created prognostic tool reliably predicts the recurrence of parathyroid cancer, enabling physicians to identify patients at the highest risk. Consequently, the tool also helps to determine the optimum postoperative strategy, including aggressive surveillance and additional treatments, according to study results….

New appetite control mechanism found in brain

A newly discovered molecule increases appetite during fasting, and decreases it during gorging. The neuron-exciting protein, named NPGL – apparently aims to maintain body mass at a constant, come feast or famine. An evolutionary masterstroke, but not great news for those looking to trim down, or beef up for the summer….
