Researchers got 2,700 college students from five countries to progressively narrow down which characteristics were most important to them in a lifetime mate, and the one that emerged from all cultures was kindness.
Flu vaccination in the U.S. substantially reduces mortality and lost work hours. A one-percent increase in the vaccination rate results in 800 fewer deaths per year approximately and 14.5 million fewer work hours lost due to illness annually.
Scientists developed a wireless patch that sticks to the scalp and generates electric pulses by harnessing energy from random body movements, which stimulated faster hair re-growth in shaved rats and hairless mice, and may reverse balding in men when fitted inside a specially designed baseball cap.
Silent Skies: Billions of North American Birds Have Vanished
Scientists find a type of bacteria that can produce alcohol in the human gut, in rare cases causing people to get drunk without ever drinking.
Simply telling people (n=7,250) they would receive a tax rebate increased their support for a carbon tax of $50-$70 per metric ton of carbon. This suggests that “revenue recycling” is the way to make carbon taxes popular.
A new study shows that, contrary to widespread belief within the solar power industry, new kinds of solar cells and panels don't necessarily have to last for 25 to 30 years in order to be economically viable in today's market.
Whole-genome study lifts veil on inheritance patterns in autism, reveals 16 new genes tied to the condition
Ancient DNA puts a face on the mysterious Denisovans, extinct cousins of Neanderthals
A new study conducted by researchers from four different universities has disproved the proposition that the excessive use of smartphones is linked to increased mental health problems.
How the sleeping brain decides which memories are worth keeping
Children in kindergartens that emphasized play, improving self-regulation, working together and helping one another, and hands-on learning performed better academically, showed less bullying and more kindness than students in more traditional classes, and teacher enthusiasm for teaching soared.
Denisovans are an extinct group of humans whose morphology remained unknown. For the first time, researchers have reconstructed their anatomy using DNA methylation maps.
How do people with psychopathic traits control ‘dark impulses'. Participants had greater levels of gray matter density in the ventrolateral prefrontal cortex, one of the brain regions involved in self-regulatory processes, including the down-regulation of more primitive and reactive emotions
A toxic cocktail of chemical pollutants in U.S. drinking water could result in more than 100,000 cancer cases. It is the first study to conduct a cumulative assessment of cancer risks due to 22 carcinogenic contaminants found in drinking water nationwide.
Scientists are finally able to study the stomach flu (human norovirus) further after the development of zebrafish larvae as the first robust in vivo model for the virus.
Steadily reducing fossil fuel emissions over coming years will prevent millions of premature deaths and help avoid the worst of climate change without causing a large spike in short-term warming that some studies predict, new analysis
An enormous volcano in space is about to erupt, scientists say
An Investigation of the Relationship Between Psychopathy and Greater Gray Matter Density in Lateral Prefrontal Cortex
Analysis finds widespread use of flawed evidence in the approval of cancer drugs in Europe, suggesting that many expensive treatments have little proof of benefit and could even cause more harm than good.
Study reveals that the monetary costs from alcohol's harms are mostly paid by those who don’t drink excessively or at all. The findings suggest alcohol companies should be taxed more to pay for the harms, given that most of their large profit margins come from sales to excessive drinkers.
Babies Born by C-Section Have Different Gut Microbes Than Vaginally Delivered Infants
Asteroid breakup 466 million years ago may have triggered our ice age | Dust from likely collision took 50,000 years to reach Earth
A microbe that lives in the soil of New Jersey’s wetlands has the unique ability to sever the carbon-fluorine bond in PFAS, a class of long-lived chemicals that disrupt hormones and increase cancer risk. Scientists suspect this microbe could help clean up contaminated environments.
