For the first time, scientists have identified the activity of a metabolic enzyme found in the batteries of human skin cells as being key to the declines of aging. A Newcastle University study, published online in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, has found that the activity of mitochondrial complex II The post Scientists Make Anti-Aging

In the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease, patients are often unable to remember recent experiences. However, a new study from MIT suggests that those memories are still stored in the brain — they just can’t be easily accessed. The MIT neuroscientists report in Nature that mice in the early stages The post ‘Lost’ Memories in
A new discovery promises to harness sunlight and air to turn plants into fuel — hundreds of times faster than current methods. You probably learned in school how photosynthesis uses the sun to help plants grow by turning sunlight into chemical energy. Scientists have now discovered what they’re calling “reverse photosynthesis” which The post Scientists Discover ‘Reverse
Schools all over Massachusetts are boosting student health and performance with a policy that gives youth an extra hour of sleep. Most Boston schools have a start time of 7:35 a.m., and with the hour of travel time students often need to set aside in the mornings, teens only get an The post High School Implements

A new breakthrough in stem cell therapy has showed great improvement among patients suffering from end-stage heart failure. In a study published by the University of Utah, patients treated with stem cells harvested from their own bone marrow – also known as ixmyelocel-T cell therapy – had experienced 37 percent fewer The post New Stem Cell
Tomorrow, most of us will probably, at some point, sit down with their friends and/or family, have a few drinks, catch up, and oh yeah, eat some food. There’s a very good chance that the food you eat will be, well, food. Chances are it’ll consist of some mix of turkey, tofurkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes,
