Child ’s science experiment solves chronic disease mystery
“Chew this.” I was instructed. “But don’t swallow. Just tell me when IT happens.” IT? What was IT? I’d have to find out. My researcher’s son — who enlisted me in his science experiment — wasn’t telling. So I obliged and started chewing. It tasted just as I expected at first. Bland. Almost cardboard-like. And then the strangest thing occurred. After about a minute, a hint of sweetness tickled my tongue. I kept chewing. A few seconds later, it intensified… like I was sucking on candy. And a few seconds after that it felt like I had an entire spoonful of sugar...

How Long Do Late Preterm Infants Need Supplemental Feedings?
Discussion Premature infants have many problems to overcome because they just aren’t ready to live outside the uterine environment. Late premature infants are defined as birth between 34 0/7 weeks and 36 6/7 weeks gestation. In the U.S. this gestational age accounts for ~70% of all preterm births or ~300,000 births/year. Late preterm infants can have delayed oral feeding skills and failure to thrive along with increased hospital readmissions. Breastfeeding can be difficult as infants can have poor coordination and poor tone, along with decreased lactation in the mother. Learning Point Weight gain lags behind intraut...

Perovskite in Earths deep interior
Silicate perovskite-type phases are the most abundant constituent inside our planet and are the predominant minerals in Earth’s lower mantle more than 660 kilometers below the surface. Magnesium-rich perovskite is a major lower mantle phase and undergoes a phase transition to post-perovskite near the bottom of the mantle. Calcium-rich perovskite is proportionally minor but may host numerous trace elements that record chemical differentiation events. The properties of mantle perovskites are the key to understanding the dynamic evolution of Earth, as they strongly influence the transport properties of lower mantle rock...

Toxic minerals in widespread use will be excluded from the revamped Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), which last December included asbestos among the top 10 dangerous chemicals the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) must review. Reducing the scope of the review will potentially leave millions of tons of asbestos and other toxic substances in homes and businesses.

Nutrient drink for Alzheimer's has disappointing result in trial
Conclusion This trial provides valuable evidence about the effects of a nutrient drink, Souvenaid, on memory in individuals with early signs that they may develop Alzheimer's disease. Importantly, the researchers found no significant effect on the main outcome their study looked at (memory). They did find less brain shrinkage and slightly better cognitive scores in the experimental group, but this still didn't lead to any reduction in the number who were diagnosed with dementia by the end of the study. This trial therefore provides no evidence that Souvenaid/Fortasyn Connect can help to prevent or slow Alzheimer's developi...
