Microorganisms Found in Child’s Bed Dust May Boost Their Health

In collaboration with the Gentofte Hospital and the Danish Pediatric Asthma Center, University of Copenhagen researchers from the Department of Biology have discovered a connection between children’s bacteria and the microorganisms that exist in the beds of children in an extensive study. This link implies that the microorganisms may decrease the risk of a child developing autoimmune diseases, allergies and asthma as they grow. While these microorganisms are invisible to the naked eye, they exist in multitudes in a child’s bed, influencing the development of microorganisms in children’s bodies. Ultimately, this impacts how resistant children become to different diseases. To…

Researchers Design Wearable Sensors That Can Detect Employee Fatigue

Scientists have been designing devices that detect a worker’s alertness. The aim of this? To monitor for fatigue. Fatigue in a work setting can cause injuries or accidents and sometimes even loss of lives. Various industrial disasters, such as the Chernobyl nuclear accident, have been linked to worker fatigue. These wearable devices measures the breathing rate of their users as well as their muscle contractions, sweating and heart rate. The research, which was reported in this month’s issue of  “IEEE Sensors Journal,” has a team of researchers from Italy explain how the innovative device works, adding that the individuals’ breathing…

Brain Protein May Be the Key to New Cancer Treatments

Scientists have discovered that Netrin-G1, a protein that plays a role in neuron development in the brain, also has a hand in the growth and development of pancreatic cancer. The study results show that this particular protein protects pancreatic cancer cells from a person's immune system while also providing important nutrients. Pancreatic cancer is among the hardest cancers to treat as its tumors grow additional connective tissue in the pancreas. This helps the cancer grow while also providing it with a biochemical and physical protective barrier against an individual's immune system as well as the drugs administered to fight the…

Researchers May Have Found a New Way to Predict Cancer Susceptibility

A new study by researchers from the University of Birmingham suggests that environmental cancer-causing agents may be used to help understand effects of exposure in addition to helping predict the individuals who may be more susceptible to developing cancer. Every individual has been exposed to low levels of radiation or substances that promote cancer development, commonly known as carcinogens. Benzopyrene, which is a widely used chemical pollutant, is found in barbequed fish and meat, exhaust fumes and wood-burning stoves. The pollutant has BPDE, which is an active ingredient that forms DNA adducts. These are damaged DNA that promote mutations that…

Research Finds That Masks Don’t Affect Lung Function When Exercising

A new study published in the “Annals of the American Thoracic Society” indicates that wearing a face mask does not diminish lung function. The team of Canadian and American researchers that worked on the study discovered that while individuals may experience an increase in shortness of breath when wearing a face mask, there was no factual evidence showing that masks decreased lung function. This applies even when masks are worn during heavy exercise. Face mask prevalence has grown since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic and has been touted as a way to effectively reduce the spread of the virus.…
