Excess sleep can put you at risk of developing mental disorders

Findings of a study published in Neurology comes as a surprise as people who consistently sleep more than nine hours a night are more likely to develop dementia accompanied by smaller brain volume, and poor executive function

Excess sleep can put you at risk of developing mental disordersSleep is a good indicator of our overall health and well-being. Seven to nine hours of sleep is recommended to feel truly rested, but oversleeping on a regular basis could signal problems with our brain health. A study published in Neurology found people who consistently sleep more than nine hours a night are more likely […]

Not just a lump, even backache could be a hidden symptom of breast cancer

Researchers say too many women unaware of other breast cancer symptoms, which include breathlessness and weight loss

Not just a lump, even backache could be a hidden symptom of breast cancer  One in six women with breast cancer has symptoms other than a lump, a study has found. These include back pain, a swollen arm, breathlessness or weight loss. But these women are far more likely to wait three months or more before seeing their GP than those with a lump. Researchers from University College […]

IVF born boys likely to have low sperm count

As per a recent study, boys conceived out of popular ICSI treatment are prone to having fertility problem

IVF born boys likely to have low sperm countBoys born via In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) might have fertility problem after they grow up, says a study which was published in the latest edition of Human Reproduction journal Doctors from the University Hospital in Brussels, who had pioneered intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) – most popular fertility treatment, have been following 54 children born using […]

Broccoli may just be the wonder-food which slows down aging

Researchers discover an enzyme, found in natural foods like broccoli and cucumbers, which can slow some chronic conditions that come along age

Broccoli may just be the wonder-food which slows down agingThe quest for the Fountain of Youth is getting a boost from an international team of researchers who may have come across a compound that appears to make cells act younger than they are—at least in mice. In a paper published in Cell Metabolism, researchers led by the Washington University School of Medicine reported that […]

Dawn phenomenon: Ways to control high morning blood sugars

Dawn phenomenon is a normal rise in blood sugar released by the liver. The release happens as the person's body is preparing to wake for the day. The rise in blood sugar is normally handled with insulin. But, so is not the case in diabetics

Schizophrenia begins in the womb, study suggests

Researchers say new findings open the door to new schizophrenia treatments. For example, a drug could be administered to expectant mothers, whose offspring has a high risk of developing schizophrenia

Schizophrenia begins in the womb, study suggestsBy transforming skin cells from patients with schizophrenia into neuronal progenitor cells – cells that form neurons in early development – researchers identified an abnormal gene pathway called nuclear FGFR1 (nFGFR1) that impairs early brain development. Senior study author Michal K. Stachowiak, Ph.D., of the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University […]

Soon, you may be wearing clothes made of paper that can protect you from dangerous bacteria

Researchers found that by applying high voltage to stacked sheets of metallised paper, they were able to generate plasma, which is a combination of heat, ultraviolet radiation and ozone that kill microbes

Soon, you may be wearing clothes made of paper that can protect you from dangerous bacteriaResearchers have gone a step ahead in making a discovery which can make your clothes a protective shield for you. Soon, you may be wearing clothes made of paper that can protect you from dangerous bacteria. Researchers have invented this inexpensive and effective way to sanitise surfaces.
