Nearly 1 in 4 women now are obese when they become pregnant, according to a new study that includes information from most of the United States.
Researchers analyzed birth certificates from 36 states and Washington D.C. in 2011, which listed how much the mother weighed before she became pregnant.
Although efforts are being made to cut down on our reliance on oil, such as more efficient cars and green energy production solutions, it seems very unlikely we’ll ever stop using it completely. At least, not before it runs out, anyway. So it’s reassuring to know that there may be an alternative in the works that allows us to produce our very own crude oil.
In 1997, the theoretical physicist Juan Maldacena proposed a bold model of the universe in which gravity, thin infinitesimal vibrating strings could be reinterpreted in terms of well-established physic’s. The mathematically complex world of chains, which exist in nine spatial dimensions plus one time, could just be a hologram: the real action unfold over a simpler, flatter cosmos where there is no gravity.
Scientists snap picture of immune system
Powerful enough to capture a single molecule microscope has taken the clearest picture yet of the immune system in action.
The technique, called super-resolution single-molecule fluorescence microscopy, recently helped scientists at the University of Manchester in England track natural killer (NK) cells, which help destroy cancer and viruses.
Certain nerves in the stomach act as a kind of biological clock, which may help dampen appetite at night and allow heartier eating during the day, researchers have found.
The results may help shed some light on why shift workers are at high risk of conditions like obesity and diabetes, they say.
Getting enough vitamin D may keep your brain healthy.
Getting enough vitamin D may not just be good for your bone health; it may keep your brain healthy as well. The researchers also found that the rats who were vitamin D deficient had significantly higher levels of several other brain proteins, which potentially contributed to significant nitrosative stress in the brain.
