Air pollution takes a year off the average global life expectancy according to study published in the journal Environmental Science & Technology Letters.The study which particularly looked at distribution of a particulate matter called PM2.5 across the globe and its effects on overall global life expectancy found that for those living in the US and the UK, life expectancy drops to an average of four months - but for those living in Asia and Africa, the situation is even worse.
The stem cells in the brain’s hypothalamus, which are also responsible for forming new brain neurons, have been found to control aging throughout the body. The cells decline as we age, which accelerates aging. But, replenishing them or the molecules they produce can slow and even reverse various aspect of aging throughout the body.
Scientists have performed the first-ever, 3D color X-ray on a human body using the MARS spectral x-ray scanner - a revolutionary colour medical scanner based on technology developed at CERN.
A study finds that every individual has a unique brain anatomy. The uniqueness is attributed to a combination of genetic factors, individual experiences and life circumstances.

Following the most precise test of gravity outside the Milky Way, an international team of astronomers has confirmed the validity of Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity in another galaxy.
MIT researchers have developed an ingestible sensor that can diagnose bleeding in the stomach or other gastrointestinal issues. The 1.5 inch long cylindrical device contains millions of genetically engineered bacteria, and is powered by 2.7-volt battery.
