Research reveals: Humans have a “salamander-like regenerative capacity” to regrow cartilage in joints

According to a recent study by Duke University scientists, humans possess an uncanny ability to regrow cartilage in their joints, much like salamanders, which are known for their remarkable ability to recover from damage to their body. This process, according to a paper published in Science Advances, is linked to the presence of certain molecules in the body that encourage the … Continue reading Research reveals: Humans have a “salamander-like regenerative capacity” to regrow cartilage in joints

Chemicals in organophosphate pesticides cause brain damage: Study

Prenatal exposure to organophosphate pesticides, a kind of pesticide considered toxic to humans, has been linked to impaired cognition and significant changes in the brain. In a major breakthrough, scientists from the University of California, Berkeley (UCB) and Stanford University found that teenagers exposed in utero to organophosphate pesticides demonstrated altered brain activities during tasks that required executive control. Sagiv and her … Continue reading Chemicals in organophosphate pesticides cause brain damage: Study

Uncovering the truth about pesticides in food

Every year, six billion pounds of pesticides are used around the world. The effects of all this pesticide use are felt in every aspect of our lives because these chemicals are incredibly pervasive. Even if you eat organic – and you definitely should – it is still hard to avoid pesticide exposure entirely. That’s unfortunate … Continue reading Uncovering the truth about pesticides in food

Covid-19 and the HIV connection revealed

Coronaviruses are pervasive throughout the human population and their symptoms typically manifest as the common cold. The four most popular coronaviruses identified include 229E (alpha coronavirus), NL63 (alpha coronavirus), OC43 (beta coronavirus), and HKU1 (beta coronavirus). More potent coronaviruses have emerged in recent years. MERS-CoV I is a beta coronavirus that causes Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, or … Continue reading Covid-19 and the HIV connection revealed

Most coronavirus patients develop “neutralizing antibodies” after recovery, but are they enough to head off another infection?

A new study led by a team from The Rockefeller University in New York City suggests that most people infected with Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) develop antibodies after they recover. But there’s a caveat: The team reveals that only some of these antibodies have the ability to neutralize the coronavirus. The immunological study looked at 149 people and found that while the … Continue reading Most coronavirus patients develop “neutralizing antibodies” after recovery, but are they enough to head off another infection?

New study says people with blood type A more likely to catch the coronavirus

People with blood type A have a significantly higher risk of getting infected by the coronavirus than people with other blood types. Meanwhile, those with type O blood, the most common blood type, have a much lower risk. These findings were reported by Chinese researchers on Monday in a study posted on the pre-print server for health sciences, medRxiv. According to … Continue reading New study says people with blood type A more likely to catch the coronavirus
