Hi-Tech Solution for Japan’s Suicide Problem

  Pressure, pushing down on me. Pressing down on you. Under Pressure. Remember those lines sung by David Bowie and Freddie Mercury?

Packed trains and stress are a way of life – and death – in Japan. And jumping in front of one is an all too common way to commit suicide and...

Two Arrested for Blowing ‘Zombie Drug’ Into Faces of Victims

Victims Robbed By Women Blowing ‘Zombie Drug’ Into Faces Two women were arrested in Paris, charged in connection to a string of robberies, alleging that they had used a powdered form of the powerful alkaloid drug scopalamine, also known as “Devil’s Breath” to seek out unsuspecting locals on the street. Sources report that the drug was blown into the victims faces, who would subsequently inhale it and become unaware of their surroundings.

Study: ‘Aquarium watching’ may be good for your health

Community marine fish and coral reef at a public aquarium Aquarium Watching for Potential Health Benefits According to a collaborative study released by the University of Exeter and Plymouth University‘s Cognitive Institute with cooperation from the National Marine Aquarium, researchers have found that aquarium watching comes with a whole host of health benefits, such as improved heart health through lowering heart rate and blood pressure as well as positive mood regulation in participants observing rich underwater landscapes. While the mechanism of action remains unclear for these benefits, participants showed signs of health improvements as larger numbers of fish were gradually introduced into the controlled aquascape....

17-year-old finds new way to stop bleeding

The future of rapid response medicine is here.  A special gel created from algae has caused quite a stir online.  The kicker?  It was invented by someone who wasn’t even old enough to get into a rated-R movie.  It’s called VetiGel and it’s purported to help deep wounds stop bleeding within seconds of application.  The way it works as described by its inventor Joe Landolina, is similar to the way LEGO blocks link together.  When the gel is applied to a wound, even a rapidly bleeding one, the polymer structure of the gel re-assembles into a mesh, a wall of microscopic Legos of...

Obesity Linked Metabolically to Eating Speed

Ever told as a kid to slow down and chew your food? There may be a good reason. Japanese researchers have found a strong correlation between the speed at which someone consumes food and metabolism, concluding that faster eaters may contribute to the obesity epidemic. In short, faster eating could lower your metabolism and come with more than a few steep health risks. The study took place over the course of three years. Participants included 8,941 residents of Soka City, aged 40 through 75, both with and without diagnoses of metabolic syndrome. Eating speed was measured in form of questionnaire. Is it eating speed...

Single Molecular Event Linked to Mammalian Brain Development

How did humans develop larger brains than our ancestors?  Researchers at the Donnelly Centre for Cellular & Biomolecular research in Toronto have just discovered that mammalian brain development may be linked to a single molecular event that started an evolutionary chain-reaction, leading all the way up to humans. A genetic mutation in protein PTBP1, responsible for neurogenesis (the development of neurons), is said to be the likely precursor to an event set-off by something called ‘alternate splicing’ which occurs when neural proteins are assembled by our DNA. According to these findings, the greater the amount of ‘alternate splicing’ events which occur, the further the development of brain region size...

Large Horn Grows on an Elderly Woman

Take a look at these photos. Medical Doctors in Sichuan (a province in southwest China) recently diagnosed an 87 year old Chinese woman who had a large horn like growth extruding from her head with a condition known as “cornu cutaneum” or “Cutaneous horns”.

Mysterious Killer Florida Sinkhole Opens Up AGAIN

Residents of several Florida homes have been evacuated due to a sinkhole that opened up in a Dunedin, Florida backyard, near St Petersburg Thursday.In March 2013, a 20-foot-wide sinkhole opened up beneath the bedroom floor of a sleeping Florida man and swallowed him whole. The body of Jeffrey Bush, 36, was never recovered and the house was razed. With the property roped off and the hole filled in, that should have been the tragedy’s last scene. But Wednesday, at the very same site, another sinkhole formed. Wednesday morning, nearby residents in Seffner, Fla., said they heard a loud noise and...
