Pregnancy cancer protection

Pregnancy seems to confer some protection against bladder cancer in mice, scientists have found.

Unhealthy meals harms memory

Adults with type 2 diabetes who eat unhealthy meals may experience memory declines immediately afterward, but this can be offset by taking antioxidant vitamins with the meal.

Ancient Mexican maize varieties

Researchers are in the process of sequencing one of the ancient popcorn races, Palomero, and analyzing its molecular and functional diversity relative to other maize races.

How to build a plant

With data emerging from many genome sequencing projects, scientists have begun to unravel the details of plant architecture at the molecular level.

Studying retroviral transmission

Recent findings by medical researchers indicate that naturally occurring nanotubes may serve as tunnels that protect retroviruses and bacteria in transit from diseased to healthy cells.

New potential gene therapy

A new University of Georgia study helps bring scientists closer to a safe and efficient gene delivery method that doesn't involve viruses.

Killing bacteria in vegetable washwater

Research indicates that a commercially available fruit and vegetable wash, when used in a food-manufacturing setting, decreases disease-causing organisms in produce-processing washwater.

Good and bad sugars

Overweight adults who consume large amounts of fructose have been found to experience alarming changes in body fat and insulin sensitivity that do not occur after eating glucose.

More benefits from milk

Grabbing as little as one glass of low-fat or fat free milk could help protect your heart, according to a new study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
