Researchers found that mice treated with an antioxidant commonly found in coffee developed none of the retinal degeneration that contributes to loss of sight.
If signed, a bill passed by Vermont's legislature would make it the first US state to require disclosure for certain foods containing genetically modified ingredients. It would also clear the way for laws in neighboring states.
The self goes all the way out to the tongue sticking out and then back in.
You need to recognize the cues and the rewards that you usually associate with smoking.
In two years NASA hopes to be growing plants on the moon in an experiment designed to shed light on how life can be sustained in extreme conditions.
In more creative mobile tech news: Kinsa consists of the thermometer -- which attaches to the headphone jack -- and an app that tells a user the local "health weather" as well as their temperature.
Until now, it was hard for geneticists to tell which parent or family line was the source of a particular genetic variant. The technique will enable improved risk assessment for diseases and refine organ matches for donors and recipients.
Oxford University researchers are currently testing the device, which captures images and puts them on transparent LED displays, on people who retain some ability to perceive light and motion.
Newly published in PLoS Computational Biology is a study describing new technology that safely delivers controlled anesthesia without requiring consistent human monitoring.
A new report warns that a quarter of the world's food crops are being grown in areas that are already experiencing high levels of water stress. Increases in drought conditions and population size could make the situation worse.
In research done on mice, a compound inside the venom of Chinese red-headed centipedes performed as well as, and in some cases even better than, morphine.
Junk DNA -- so called because it was thought to have no biological function -- may actually play a role in determining facial shape, say scientists.
A new study is only the latest to link higher-than-average facial width to certain unsavory behaviors, including -- in this case -- the propensity to cheat. However, the researchers warn not to judge a book by its cover.
What started out as a personal experiment to reduce a typical human's nutritional needs to a single drink has now grown into an actual business, thanks to US$3 million in preorders and seed funding. One goal: Improving the taste.
UCLA researcher Steve Horvath has come up with a way to measure the biological -- rather than chronological -- age of human organs, tissues and cells. His findings could lead to new ways to slow or even stop aging.
