Researchers at the University of South Florida and the International Agency for Research on Cancer have studied the patterns and timing of sunlight exposure and how each is related to two nonmelanoma skin cancers.
Researchers at Moffitt Cancer Center, the University of South Florida and the International Agency for Research on Cancer in France have studied the patterns and timing of sunlight exposure and how each is related to two nonmelanoma skin cancers – basal cell carcinoma and squam... [»]
New research by scientists from the University of Edinburgh suggests that people who exercise later in life may better protect their brain from age-related changes than those who do not.
People who exercise later in life may better protect their brain from age-related changes than those who do not, a study suggests. Researchers found that people over 70 who took regular exercise showed less brain shrinkage over a three-year period than those who did little exerc... [»]
New findings by scientists at the Stanford University School of Medicine suggest that activating the brain's immune cells could play a crucial role in regenerating damaged brain tissue.
The brain’s key “breeder” cells, it turns out, do more than that. They secrete substances that boost the numbers and strength of critical brain-based immune cells believed to play a vital role in brain health. This finding adds a new dimension to our understanding of how r... [»]
