How natural are ‘ natural ’ hair dyes?

Cosmetics advertised as natural and organic are a several billion-dollar beauty market, but those labels don’t mean much, experts say. Actress Jessica Alba has benefited from the growing demand for wholesome items as her business, The Honest Company, has obtained a billion-dollar valuation. Major personal-care companies are rolling out “natural” products packaged with green letters and pictures […]Related:More parents believe vaccines are ‘unnecessary,’ while a mumps outbreak growsSingapore Zika cases rise to 56 at one construction site; Malaysia starts border screeningFor Latinos, cancer risks can depend on heritage

This study aimed to describe the epidemiological, clinical, and pathological aspects of an outbreak of poisoning byKalanchoe blossfeldiana in cattle in the semiarid region of Pernambuco, Brazil. Epidemiological and clinical data were obtained from the owner and veterinarian during technical visits. Prunings of this plant were disposed of in a pasture with a shortness of forage. Seventeen cattle had clinical signs, and thirteen died 4 –5 days after the first clinical signs were observed. Clinical signs and gross and histological lesions include gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, and neuromuscular disorders.Kalanch...

AbstractBayesian Additive Regression Trees (BART) is a statistical sum of trees model. It can be considered a Bayesian version of machine learning tree ensemble methods where the individual trees are the base learners. However, for datasets where the number of variablesp is large the algorithm can become inefficient and computationally expensive. Another method which is popular for high-dimensional data is random forests, a machine learning algorithm which grows trees using a greedy search for the best split points. However, its default implementation does not produce probabilistic estimates or predictions. We propose an a...

Old age is a risk factor for cancer development in humans and animals, and studies have shown that tumors in animals are acceptable models for studying human cancers, considering the similarities between their factors. This work was conducted in a 53-year-old captive female common hippo (Hippopotamus amphibious) with a left leg tumor and metastatic mass. Histopathological and immunohistochemical analyses were carried out with a final diagnosis of a high grade pleomorphic sarcoma. A proteomic study using mass spectrometry was added in order to identify further aspects of the primary tumor and metastasis which could improve ...

When the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was passed a little over six years ago, it brought with it the promise of health insurance for all Americans. It also sought to begin to shift the paradigm for health care in this country, emphasizing value over volume, and recognizing the importance of prevention coupled with appropriate access to care. By now, it is well known that repealing the ACA could leave nearly 20 million Americans uninsured and simultaneously result in millions of job losses across the country. An associated cost that has been less discussed, but no less relevant, is what repeal could mean for the nation’s...

Scientists have discovered three existing drugs — used for cancer, hepatitis C and for parasitic infections — that they say appear promising against the Zika virus. The experiments were conducted only in lab-grown human cells in petri dishes, but the results were dramatic. Zika is so devastating that the damage it does has been thought to be irreversible. But the researchers […]Related:Pocket Porn: Why Anthony Weiner can’t seem to stop sextingMore parents believe vaccines are ‘unnecessary,’ while a mumps outbreak growsSingapore Zika cases rise to 56 at one ...

Dangr33 is back. Yep, it wasn’t enough for disgraced former New York congressman Anthony Weiner to be caught sexting twice or even to bare his soul in a documentary about his sextcapades. Now he’s been caught sexting a woman, again not his wife, with his young son in the crotch shot. There are many answers […]Related:Scientists find drugs for cancer, hepatitis C can kill Zika in petri dish.
