And I remember her buying Sweatin' to the Oldies videos and trying to do the move...

DNA methylation affects superiority of hybrid plants
Hybrid vigor refers to when a crossbreed plant or animal shows superior traits compared to its parents. A research group has discovered that a gene involved in maintaining DNA methylation is closely connected to hybrid vigor in Arabidopsis thaliana. This has potential applications for other cruciferous vegetables such as Chinese cabbage, and could lead to more efficient breeding of high-yield vegetables. (Source: ScienceDaily Headlines)

Calcium supplements linked to post-stroke dementia in women
Conclusion The media paint this as a troubling study for older women who take calcium to strengthen their bones. However the small size of the study (only 98 women took calcium supplements, and only 14 of those got dementia) and its observational nature mean that we cannot rely on the results. As the researchers mention, it is possible that those taking supplements were less healthy than those that didn't in some unmeasured way. Further research may improve our confidence in these results. Broken bones are not a trivial matter for older people – a broken hip can be the difference between being able to live inde...

Broccoli compounds may help combat chronic diseases
Conclusion The "news" that broccoli may protect against some types of disease because they have high levels of phenol compounds is nothing new. We've known about the link between diets rich in phenolic compounds and the lower risk of heart disease since 1995. This study looks instead at the mechanisms within broccoli plants that regulate how much phenol a plant produces. Perhaps unsurprisingly, this varies a lot and seems to be affected both by the plant's genetic make-up and the environmental conditions in which it is grown. The research may help food growers to increase the amount of phenol compound...

Fluids accumulate in the lungs and make you weak, tired and short of breath. Less blood flowing to your brain makes you dizzy and confused. Vital organs like your lungs, brain and kidneys begin to shut down. What Happens When You Have CHF? A heart with CHF is severely deconditioned. When your hea...

The mention of Nicaragua usually conjures thoughts of political instability and poverty but with the growth of tourism this perception is slowly changing.

Buying organic food typically involves shelling out a premium. But is the extra pinch to the pocket actually worth it?

Producing organic food tends to be costlier along every part of the supply chain -- including farming practices that usually require greater labor inputs and segregating organic in...
