Researchers to See How Much Carbon Dioxide Forests Can Take
Researchers at a British University have embarked on a decade-long experiment that will pump a forest full of carbon dioxide to measure how it copes with rising levels of the gas, a key driver of climate change.
The Free Air Carbon Dioxide Enrichment (FACE) experiment at the University of Birmingham’s Institute of Forest Research (BIFoR) will expose a fenced-off section of mature woodland in Norbury Park in Staffordshire, West Midlands, to levels of CO2 that experts predict will be...

Spectators Gear Up in US for Coast-to-coast Solar Eclipse
The first total solar eclipse across the continental United States in a century is expected to spark watching parties and traffic jams as it darkens skies from Oregon to South Carolina, authorities said Wednesday.
During the August 21 eclipse, the moon will pass between the sun and Earth, blocking the face of the sun and leaving only its outer atmosphere, or corona, visible in the sky.
It will be the first coast-to-coast total eclipse since 1918.
Weather permitting, people can watch... Wed, 21 Jun 2017 21:27:00 -0400

Study Suggests Moms Who Breast-feed Have Lower Risk of Heart Disease Later
A new study suggests a link between breast-feeding and a lowered risk of heart disease in older women.
The research by Chinese investigators found that women who breast-fed may have lowered their risk of heart disease or stroke by an average of 10 percent when they became older.
Researchers at the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, Peking University and the University of Oxford analyzed data on 289,573 women whose average age was 51.
They found that those who... Wed, 21 Jun 2017 17:00:38 -0400
Giant Iceberg Like 'Niggling Tooth' Set to Crack off Antarctica
One of the biggest icebergs on record is like a "niggling tooth" about to snap off Antarctica and will be an extra hazard for ships around the frozen continent as it breaks up, scientists said on Wednesday.
An area of the Larsen C ice shelf, about as big as the U.S. state of Delaware or the Indonesian island of Bali, is connected by just 13 km (8 miles) of ice after a crack has crept about 175 kms along the sheet, with a new jump last month.
"It's keeping us all on... Wed, 21 Jun 2017 16:18:51 -0400
'Walking Blood Bank' Could Save Lives in Remote Areas
A blood network in the Pacific Northwest has developed a kit for transfusions in remote places that it says "takes the banking out of blood banking."
A blood transfusion can often be the difference between life and death. Hospitals have stored blood on hand for people gravely injured in car accidents, and new mothers suffering from potentially fatal postpartum hemorrhaging. In areas far from hospitals and blood banks – like battlefields - combat medics have trained to do a... Wed, 21 Jun 2017 11:40:40 -0400

He added that reaching to the Moon, Mars and... Wed, 21 Jun 2017 09:45:37 -0400
Cats Rule the Pet Kingdom
To judge by their popularity in online videos, cats rule the pet kingdom. In fact, there are more pet cats in the United States than dogs, in part because most cat households are home to multiple cats. Some new DNA evidence suggests that long before they began showing up on our daily Facebook feed, cats were part of our lives. VOA's Kevin Enochs explains. Wed, 21 Jun 2017 00:07:00 -0400

The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) reports the planet Earth is experiencing another exceptionally warm year with record-breaking temperatures occurring in Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and the United States.
At least 60 people have been killed in the devastating forest fires in central Portugal. The World Meteorological Organization says one of the factors contributing to these run-away wildfires are very high temperatures that have exceeded 40 degrees... Tue, 20 Jun 2017 14:17:45 -0400

The Nrf2 knockout scare – can dietary antioxidants hurt you?
A recent UCLA study on the actions of a cellular antioxidant regulator, Nrf2, found that it had some connection to the formation of atherosclerotic plaque, and that reducing Nrf2 decreased atherosclerosis. But should these study findings scare you away from eating Nrf2-promoting dietary antioxidants found in broccoli, blueberries, and dark chocolate, or from taking the […] Tue, 11 Jan 2011 15:21:39 +0000

Where once Epstein Barr Virus and Human Papilloma Virus were believed to affect mostly women, science has found that men can be affected too. Until now, prostate cancer causes have been blamed on genetics. However, older research suggest that the Herpes Viruses have always been suspect as a cause of cancers. More now than ever, Epstein Barr Virus and Human Papilloma Virus are strongly linked to prostate cancer affecting fathers, husbands, brothers, son and fathers.This is relevant given the new focus on prostate cancer, the elusive herpes virus Epstein Barr, and its multitude of transformative symptoms affecting the man in your life.
High fat diet reduces gut bacteria, Crohn's disease symptoms
Researchers at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine have shown a high fat diet may lead to specific changes in gut bacteria that could fight harmful inflammation—a major discovery for patients suffering from Crohn's disease. Crohn's disease, a type of inflammatory bowel syndrome, causes debilitating intestinal swelling, cramping, and diarrhea. The disease affects half a million people in the United States, but its cause is yet unclear. Thu, 22 Jun 2017 12:19:29 EDT
Popular prostate drug linked to serious side effects

Proton pump inhibitors do not contribute to dementia or Alzheimer's disease
Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are medications used to treat digestive problems such as ulcers and reflux disease by reducing the body's production of the acid that helps us digest food. Ulcers are sores that develop on the lining of our digestive system; when they develop in the upper part of the small intestine they are called "duodenal ulcers." Reflux disease is a condition in which stomach acid or other fluids in the digestive system irritate our food pipe, also known as the esophagus. Thu, 22 Jun 2017 12:18:30 EDT

The biology of uterine fluid: How it informs the fetus of mom's world
A developing fetus bathes in a mixture of cellular secretions and proteins unique to its mother's uterus. Before fertilization, the pH of uterine fluid helps create a conducive environment for sperm migration, and afterward, its volume supports the embryo as it implants onto the wall of the uterus. Recent evidence suggests that uterine fluid may play another key role in embryonic development: communicating the mother's outside conditions to the fetus, so that the latter can prepare accordingly. A review of this research appears on June 22 in Trends in Molecular Medicine. Thu, 22 Jun 2017 12:00:09 EDT
