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.
Do you know that vomit-inducing smell that comes from the expired food items? Well, you do, and you only have to smell it once to make sure it never happens again.

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.
In a first, researchers at Garvan Institute of Medical Research, Australia have identified a new DNA structure inside living human cells. Known as the intercalated motif (i-Motif), the newly identified structure looks poles apart from the iconic double helix structure everyone associates with DNA.
Muscular strength, measured by handgrip, is an indication of how sharp your brain is. The study which involved nearly half a million people also showed that the relationships were consistently strong in both people who were under the age of 55 and those over 55.
Researchers at Yale University in New Haven, CT, have discovered that intestinal bacteria in mice and humans can travel to other organs and evoke autoimmune response. But, administering antibiotic or vaccine that targets the bacteria can subdue this autoimmune reaction.
A gene is a segment of DNA that contains a set of instructions to make molecules that organisms need to survive. In a process called gene expression, these instructions are converted into some sort of product. And the product usually is either a protein or functional RNA. So what is gene expression? And, how do genes express themselves?
Without salt, your favourite foods such as french fries, potato chips, and chocolate chip cookies would all taste bland. And that’s because salt has lots of effects on flavor perception than just making things more salty. Many say a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, but a pinch of salt, in fact, does the work better. How is that? And why does salt make food taste better?
