Plants and animals alter their behaviors based on the seasons. Humans, it turns out, are no different. Here are just a few ways we change with the season.
After comparing urban fruits to their commercially grown counterparts, researchers have determined that the urban-grown produce is more nutrient-rich in calcium and iron and is free of lead and arsenic.
A new study revealed that grasshoppers used to feed pet lizards carry allergens.
The venom of two species of South American pit viper may help doctors seal wounds rapidly and promote faster healing.
Indian Mynas are also carrying exotic strands of avian malaria which is threatening native wildlife.
Orange lichens could be a potential source for anticancer drugs, Emory researchers revealed in a new study. A pigment known as parietin found in the lichens was tested on acute lymphoblastic leukemia cells and found to have significantly reduced or prevented cell growth within 48 hours.
Using a water-resistant sponge material that absorbs contaminants, designers have created a 3D-printed bathing suit that cleans the water as you swim.
In terms of health benefits from their inherent antioxidants, exotic Ceylon gooseberries are giving blueberries and cranberries a run for their money, a new study shows.
Yale researchers have confirmed that removing natural gas from deep underground using hydraulic fracturing methods does not contaminate drinking water, although they also said that "geology across the country is very different."

CRISPR, a gene-editing system, could have serious consequences if rapidly spreading genes end up in the wrong species.
A contagious cancer known as devil facial tumor disease nearly wiped out Tasmanian devils over the last twenty years. After being treated with a new vaccine, 20 captive-bred devils were recently returned to the wild in hopes that their population and diversity will rebound.
People who travel along busy roads to get to work are at a higher risk of being exposed to traffic related air pollution than those that take the longer, less congested route, say researchers.
As the researchers sequenced the flatworm's DNA, they observed which genes were activated for certain regenerative purposes which they believe will aid in future stem cell research.
