Becoming eligible for Medicare at age 65 in the USA is associated with reductions in the gap in health care coverage, access to health care, and self-reported health for Black and Hispanic adults.
The brain of one of popular culture’s most infamous dinosaurs helps to clarify its diet and hearing range.
A new way to detect ET life using chemical profiles Rather than detecting one chemical at a time, scientists taught machine learning algorithms what different mixtures of compounds from living and non-living sources “look like” to chemical analyzers. The computer then used those fingerprints to correctly identify living and non-living samples in the lab!
Researchers found a new way to tell the difference between the chemicals of life and the chemicals of non-life...using machine learning!
When did simple life become more complex, such as the modern animals we see today? A recent study may have uncovered evidence for one of these turning points. At Nilpena National Heritage Site, South Australia, scientists discovered new fossils that have never been seen before.
Human activities such as coal mining and processing can cause high levels of selenium contamination, which can be harmful to human health. Could common soil fungi be the answer to this problem? #fungi #selenium #wastewater #contamination Study by: @mary_sabuda @biominerals @crsoil

3D Brain model shows how the herpes virus can trigger Alzheimer’s disease Scientists injected the herpes-simplex virus type 1, the strain that causes cold sores, into brain tissue and found that it caused the brain to look and act like an Alzheimer’s brain. Injecting an antiviral drug was successful in reducing the spread and damage.

Salmonella enterica and Listeria monocytogenes are two diarrhea-causing bacteria that can make you sick when eating contaminated produce. It turns out, soil-free growing mats used to produce microgreens might be a breeding ground for these bacteria. Peat or coco coir might be a safer choice.
A review of previous anatomy studies found that some “ancient” muscles that are normally present in other primate species may be more common in humans than previously thought
Microbes on Earth have adapted to survive in some pretty extreme locations. The extreme dryness of deserts, high salinity in salt deposits, cold temperatures of glaciers, and even high pressures of the deep ocean don’t stop some life forms. Another extreme environment is created by a rock known as serpentinite. This…
