This Man Hasn't Showered In 12 Years, And He Doesn't Smell
By: Tia Ghose Published: 11/11/2015 09:38 AM EST on LiveScience It's a staple of the modern morning routine: Wake up, hop in the shower, lather with soap. But is that morning scrub-a-dub really necessary? One man claims not. David Whitlock, a chemical engineer in Boston, has not showered for 12 years. Whitlock isn't running an experiment in extreme water conservation. Rather, he believes that humans don't need to shower to be healthy, and that a daily soap scrub may actually remove a beneficial type of bacteria that keeps the bacteria that contribute to B.O. in check. To boost the presence of odor-eating bacteria, Whi...

Growing up with a dog 'reduces childhood asthma risk'
ConclusionThis cohort study aimed to study the association between living with or around dogs or farm animals during the first year of life and the risk of asthma in preschool children and school-aged children. The results suggest early exposure to dogs and farm animals may reduce the risk of childhood asthma. However, there are a number of limitations and caveats to consider. This study type can suggest an association, but it cannot prove cause and effect. The researchers adjusted their analysis for various potential confounders, including parental age, education level and country of birth. But it was not possible to acco...

An itch you just can’t scratch
Everyone knows the best way to suppress an itch is to scratch it, but for people who suffer from skin diseases like eczema, no amount of scratching can bring relief. Fortunately, help may be on the way. Scientists from the Buck Institute for Research on Aging and the University of California, Berkeley have identified a pair of proteins responsible for chronic itching. The study, published in Neuron and partially funded by the NIH’s National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), may lead to treatments that can stop an itch at its source.

Allergies Are Becoming More Frequent. Why?
By Adam Collison, Elizabeth Percival, Joerg Mattes, and Rani Bhatia of the University of Newcastle. This story was originally published by The Conversation. Allergies are reactions caused by the immune system as it responds to environmental substances that are usually harmless to most people. They may occur in response to a range of different material (called allergens), such as food, pollen, dust mites, animals, insect stings, or medicines. An allergy can affect different parts of the body. Allergic rhinitis, or hay fever, for instance, affects the nose and eyes, while eczema affects the skin. Food allergies aff...

The Best Science Contest You’ve Never Heard Of
It all started with a bee sting on his testicle. It didn’t hurt as much as Michael L. Smith, a neurobiology and behavior PhD candidate at Cornell University, expected, and he wanted to know why. Did stings hurt more in some areas of the body than others? The best way to find out, he surmised, was to sting himself at 25 different parts of his body and then rate the pain on a scale of 1-10. His resulting “sting pain index” ranked the nostril, upper lip and penis shaft as most painful and the skull, middle toe tip, and upper arm as least painful. That study was not only published, but it also won him an Ig N...

From the desk of Shelly Flais, MDTwenty or thirty years ago, it was rare to have a friend or classmate with a peanut allergy. Times have changed. The number of children in the U.S. with a peanut allergy has more than tripled between 1997 and 2008. These days anywhere from 6 to 9% of all kids have a food allergy of some kind, meaning in a typical classroom 2 or 3 kids can be affected.
