Ever thought about water?   Water is the matrix of all life.  It carries oxygen, nutrients and wastes.  Remember that every living cell is surrounded by water, contains water and IS water! But who understands common simple H2O?

Water is the commonly ignored context of biology.  If you can make water happy you can rock biochemistry at its charge driven foundations.  It is the place no one looked, Continue reading

Scientists at Princeton University used off-the-shelf printing tools to create a functional ear that can “hear” radio frequencies far beyond the range of normal human capability.

The researchers’ primary purpose was to explore an efficient and versatile means to merge electronics with tissue. The scientists used 3D printing of cells and nanoparticles Continue reading

Huntington’s gene mutation carriers: Severity of the genetic mutation related to learning efficiency

People who bear the genetic mutation for Huntington’s disease learn faster than healthy people. The more pronounced the mutation was, the more quickly they learned. This is reported by researchers from the Ruhr-Universität Bochum and from Dortmund in the journal Current Biology. Continue reading

Proteomics reveals how ancient remedy slows prostate tumor cell proliferation
An over-the-counter natural remedy derived from honeybee hives arrests the growth of prostate cancer cells and tumors in mice, according to a new paper from researchers at the University of Chicago Medicine.

Caffeic acid phenethyl ester, or CAPE, is a compound isolated from honeybee hive propolis, the resin used by bees to patch up holes in hives. Propolis has been used for centuries as a natural remedy Continue reading

A recent article published in The Science of Biology espouses the anti-detoxification views of Professor David Bender, professor emeritus of nutritional biochemistry at University College London. In his article, titled The Detox Delusion, Professor Bender claims that detoxification is a “meaningless marketing term,” even potentially dangerous to your health and unnecessary as a dieting tool. He further states, “I am not sure what ‘self-healing’ is and the idea of ‘raised energy levels’ is nonsense.” Continue reading

Research has established that taking folic acid supplements during pregnancy reduces the risk of bearing a child with neural tube defects, but little is known about the relationship between prenatal folic acid and neurodevelopment after birth. A collaborative study between investigators at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health and Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health has now reported that mothers who took folic acid supplements from 4 weeks before to 8 weeks after conception reported a significantly lower prevalence of severe language delay in their children at age 3. The study was based in a unique Norwegian pregnancy cohort often referred to as “MoBa”. Continue reading
