Exposure to farm dust is linked to protection against asthma and allergies. While the benefits of growing up on a farm have been known for some time now, a new study discovered a missing link.
Color blindness affects a significant portion of the population, most notably men. And now, new research has identified a new gene mutation that could possibly cause this condition.
Memories that have been "lost" as a result of amnesia have recently been retrieved in mice using light, according to a new study.
Dandelions: one lawn's weed is another lawn's flower. That has long been the root of one of the least import debates in lawn care history (seriously, it's spring! we LIKE yellow flowers). However, for some time now the little flowers have also been used in the natural production of rubber. Apparently, the dandelions could even put the rubber industry through a cost-cutting revolution, but first experts need to better understand how exactly they work.
In a breakthrough study against the virus that causes AIDS, scientists have identified a new HIV-agent that could create an effective vaccine in the future.
Mushrooms look like peaceful things, minding their own business as they soak up valuable nutrients from the soil around them. However, a rare few kinds of mushrooms are secret killers, lacerating, poisoning, or even strangling hidden prey as they innocently stand around. Now researchers have determined that one of these silent assassins gets the job done with nanoscopic "cookie cutters."
Researchers have figured out how to turn back time, at least for a boiled egg. And while that alone is a pretty impressive accomplishment, this 'unboiling' innovation wasn't just for bragging rights. The researchers behind the technique argue that it could dramatically reduce the cost of food production, biotechnology works, and even cancer treatments.
What makes a good head of foam on your beer? Food science researchers say that it is all about just the right amount of a barely lipid transfer protein (LTP) classified as "LTP1."
A protein has been discovered that can delay the progress of pulmonary fibrosis and promote longer patient survival, according to a recent scientific study.
