A new research study conducted by the students and faculty at Binghamton University, State University at New York, has revealed that food packaging could be negatively affecting the way in which our digestive tract operates. Zinc Oxide (ZnO) nanoparticles at doses that are relevant to what might be normally eaten in a meal or in […]

Researchers show for the first time that healthy older men and women can generate just as many new brain cells as younger people. There has been controversy over whether adult humans grow new neurons, and some research has previously suggested that the adult brain was hard-wired and that adults did not grow new neurons. This […]

A study published in Nature Genetics and led by scientists at Van Andel Research Institute (VARI) and Cedars Sinai, have developed a new computational, straightforward method to measure cellular age. The findings may lead to simpler, better screening and a way to measure the success of anti-aging therapies. The findings reveal a measurable, progressive loss […]

Ever notice how a cut inside the mouth heals much faster than a cut to the skin? Gum tissue repairs itself roughly twice as fast as skin and with reduced scar formation. One reason might be because of the characteristics of gingival mesenchymal stem cells, or GMSCs, which can give rise to a variety of […]

Working out in groups and with friends can be a big bonus. One of the benefits researchers discovered was that it lowered stress in a study by 26 percent and significantly improved the quality of life! Dayna Yorks, lead researcher for the study conducted by the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine, says […]

A new study has shown that it isn?t so much the type of diet, Low-Fat vs. Low Carb, but a more a matter of quality of the diet! A Stanford University study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, has concluded that both diets can work equally well at shedding unwanted pounds as […]

Led by researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine, a diverse team of neuroscientists and surgeons successfully grafted human neural progenitor cells into rhesus monkeys with spinal cord injuries. The grafts not only survived, but grew hundreds of thousands of human axons and synapses, resulting in improved forelimb function in the monkeys. […]

A Super-aging Study being led by neuroscientist Emily Rogalski at Chicago?s Northwestern University may give new insight into how some people in the 80?s and 90?s keep the same sharp memory as someone else several decades younger. The work is a turn on the disappointing hunt for new drugs to help or prevent a variety […]
