Freshwater ecosystems filter pollutants before they reach oceans

Posted: 30 Apr 2018 06:23 PM PDT

By adding excess nutrients to crops, some are very likely to end up in rivers, lakes and streams. But not all of the carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus that enter waterways end up downstream. Freshwater ecosystems filter some of the excess pollutants out of the water before it reaches the ocean, according to a new study.

Diagnostic imaging computers outperform human counterparts

Posted: 30 Apr 2018 01:05 PM PDT

Posted: 30 Apr 2018 10:18 AM PDT

Concern over the potential imminent eruptions of Earth's supervolcanoes, like Taupo in New Zealand or Yellowstone in the United States, may be quelled by the results of a new study suggesting that geological signs pointing to a catastrophic eruption would be clear far in advance.

Personal care products contribute to a pollution 'rush hour'

Posted: 30 Apr 2018 10:18 AM PDT

When people are out and about, they leave plumes of chemicals behind them -- from both car tailpipes and the products they put on their skin and hair. In fact, emissions of siloxane, a common ingredient in shampoos, lotions, and deodorants, are comparable in magnitude to the emissions of major components of vehicle exhaust, such as benzene, from rush-hour traffic.

Horses get the flu, too

Posted: 30 Apr 2018 10:18 AM PDT

Flu vaccines for horses haven't been updated in more than 25 years, but researchers have developed a new live equine influenza vaccine that's safe and more protective than existing vaccines. Proactively preventing the spread of flu in animals is important, as animals are the most likely source of future human pandemics. Animals can be infected with multiple influenza viruses and have the potential to act as 'mixing vessels,' generating new strains that could infect people.

New models could uncover important answers for Alzheimer's researchers

Posted: 30 Apr 2018 10:17 AM PDT

Alzheimer's disease currently affects more than 5.5 million Americans and is one of the costliest diseases to treat, according to the Alzheimer's Association. Characterized by a buildup of plaque in the brain, few animal models exist that researchers could use to study this devastating disorder. Now a team of researchers has developed a rat model that can be used to study the buildup of amyloid plaques and vascular abnormalities in the brain.

A new formula for creating chemical reactions -- with carbs

Posted: 30 Apr 2018 10:17 AM PDT

A wide range of drugs and biochemical probes rely on natural or synthetic compounds that aid a reaction by adding carbohydrates. It's a process called glycosylation. But it is traditionally a highly specific process that makes synthesis of such compounds, for testing or large-scale production, difficult. A team of scientists has developed a new approach to glycosylation that is remarkably simple and works in water at room temperature.

Chronic dizziness can result from, or trigger, psychiatric disorders

Posted: 30 Apr 2018 07:25 AM PDT

Dizziness can fall into a number of broad categories, including vertigo (spinning sensation), presyncope (near-fainting), and disequilibrium (imbalance). When a patient's description of symptoms appears consistent with one of these categories, physicians are better equipped to make an accurate diagnosis. Patients who have a difficult time describing their symptoms, or seem to experience several different symptoms, are likely experiencing non-specific dizziness -- which should be a cue for physicians to ask about the patient's mental health.

This finding could have significant implications for identifying patients who may be at risk for developing PD and for the early treatment of the disease.

86 million workdays lost to migraine in the UK every year

Posted: 27 Apr 2018 11:47 AM PDT

Migraine costs the UK economy £8.8 billion per year in lost productivity, a new report reveals. The equivalent of 86 million workdays are lost to migraine each year and close to £1 billion is spent on healthcare costs associated with the condition. It affects more than 23 per cent of adults with almost 200,000 attacks happening in the UK every day -- making migraine the most common neurological reason for accident and emergency attendance.
