A new, sustainable disinfectant made from sawdust and water can knock out more than 99 percent of some disease-causing microbes, including anthrax and several strains of flu.
On again, off again relationships can have a long-lasting negative impact on couples’ mental health, research finds
Legalization of marijuana in California has helped some financial institutions in the state increase their assets at the same time many banks, feeling stifled by federal regulations, deny services to licensed growers, manufacturers and retailers, a new study shows.
27% of North American adults self-reported having used cannabis for medical purposes. Main physical and mental health reasons of use were: pain (53%), sleep (46%), headaches/migraines (35%), appetite (22%), & nausea/vomiting (21%); anxiety (52%), depression (40%), & PTSD/trauma (17%).
Patients who experienced cognitive impairments, or brain fog, following COVID-19 infection had abnormalities in their cerebrospinal fluid. Researchers say the overstimulation of the immune system as a result of COVID may be the cause of cognitive deficits.
Children in sub-Saharan Africa who are hospitalized with COVID-19 are dying at a rate far greater than children in the U.S. and Europe, according to a new study.
A major milestone has just been reached in quantum computing. Three separate teams around the world have passed the 99 percent accuracy threshold for silicon-based quantum computing, placing error-free quantum operations within tantalizing grasp.
Antifreeze cream prevents frostbite injuries to skin. Researchers have developed a cream that prevents frostbite injuries in mice when applied to the skin 15 minutes before severe cold exposure.
Common pollutants in the air - like diesel fumes - might be reducing pollination of crops and wildflowers by almost a third, by preventing insects from sniffing them out
Few countries offer a good place to die. Money doesn’t always guarantee attention to end-of-life care. In the U.S., resources are often invested in last-ditch efforts to extend life, rather than measures to ensure comfort and quality of life in a patient’s final days.
Scientific review of 194 research publications suggests that moderate coffee consumption was not found to generate harmful effects of the digestive tract. The research found the association with a reduced risk of gallstones and the evidence of a reduced risk of pancreatitis
Study finds Earth's core is cooling faster than expected
Study: Being overweight may cause more hospital admissions and higher incidences of disease and mortality than previous studies report. Furthermore, the relationship was largely driven by an adverse fat distribution in a certain area (measured by waist-hip ratio) rather than overall BMI.
Children’s Ability to Manage Emotions Is Linked to That of Their Parents: Researchers report children with speech-language disorders or developmental language disorders have greater difficulty in regulating their emotions.
Quantum computing in silicon hits 99 per cent accuracy
University of Helsinki research shows particles formed in boreal forests affect clouds in the troposphere. A new study shows that through aerosol formation and growth, the forests are capable of mitigating climate change and have a regional effect on the climate of an entire continent at the most.
Waiting more than 5 hours in emergency care before admission to hospital is linked to a heightened risk of death from any cause within the next 30 days, reveals a study of more than 5 million patients in England.
More Than Two-Thirds of Adverse COVID-19 Vaccine Events Are Due to Placebo Effect
Owl wing design reduces aircraft, wind turbine noise pollution. Trailing-edge noise is the dominant source of sound from aeronautical and turbine engines like those in airplanes, drones, and wind turbines. Suppressing this noise pollution is a major environmental goal for some urban areas.
Discovery of a “hidden gem” enables gene editing with a small but mighty CRISPR-Cas3 system - Enhanced research tool is a potential boon for research in genetic diseases and developmental biology
Male elephant seals use a high-risk high-reward feeding strategy: with great mass comes great mortality.
Caffeine, as a supplement, boosted the performance of cyclists by improving power output and cardiovascular functioning. In a 16 km cycling trial, participants who took caffeine completed their run ∼40 seconds faster (on average) compared to participants who took a placebo.
Exposing bees, butterflies and other pollinators to air pollution severely impairs their ability to sniff out the plants they feed on. That could be bad news for both insect populations and the crops that rely on them for pollination.
3 studies (N = 2,180) found people applied higher standards to others than to themselves when it came to following the self-quarantine rules. This effect was strong when a relatively low threat was perceived, but the self–other difference disappeared when the perceived threat was high.
"Over the past 20 years, nationalism [in the US] has become sorted by party, as Republican identifiers have come to define America in more exclusionary and critical terms and Democrats have increasingly endorsed inclusive and positive conceptions of nationhood."
