Rosetta wakes up for comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko

NASA is participating in the European Space Agency’s Rosetta mission, whose goal is to observe one comet space-bound icy dirt ball from up close — for months on end. The spacecraft, festooned with 25 instruments between its lander and orbiter (including three from NASA), is programmed to “wake up” from […]

New Zealand scientists in a study find sugary drinks can cause gout

Red meat, seafood and beer are already known to trigger high levels of uric acid that cause the arthritic ailment, but scientists at the universities of Otago and Auckland have also discovered a human gene variant that can “turn bad” when affected by sugary drinks. Sufferers of gout might soon […]

Harvard Med School study urges need for younger women for regular mammogram

Harvard Med School study urges need for younger women for regular mammogram. More than two-thirds of breast cancer deaths occurred in younger women who do not have regular mammograms, a U.S. study said Monday, refuting a 2009 recommendation that discouraged routine screenings for women under 50 and recommends only biennial […]

Study identifies new genetic factors behind severe childhood epilepsy

A large -scale international study by researchers identified 25 new mutations on six key genes associated with severe forms of childhood epilepsy. The study is largely funded by the U.S. National Institutes of Health. The study, part of a project involving more than 40 international institutions, used a cutting-edge genetic […]
