Researchers have made what they say is a critical gene discovery that could change the way type 2 diabetes is prevented and treated. The new finding uncovers a gene mutation that protects people from type 2 diabetes.
Boston University Medical Center researchers have linked one simple thing that can keep our brain youthful. Findings published in the Annals of Clinical and Translational Neurology are the first to show genuine brain health benefits from physical fitness among older adults.
It seems possible that maple syrup could help humans fight infection. Researchers recently discovered maple syrup has properties that make antibiotics more effective and could help protect us from the threat of superbugs that have become resistant to antibiotics.
Researchers are trying to understand more about bacteria in the gut and how diversity of microbes promote or adversely affect our health. A new study suggests Western lifestyle might be the culprit for disappearing bacteria in our intestines that can have implications for health.
Men taking muscle building supplements may be increasing their risk of testicular cancer by as much as sixty-fivepercent finds a new study. Authors for the first of a kind study say billions of dollars are spent annually on supplements that contain creatine or androstenedione.
Green tea and apples are both known to be healthy additions to our diet. Now researchers understand more about how apples and tea can protect us from heart disease and cancer.
A team at Rockefeller University report on a potential new psoriasis treatment that may eventually lead to a cure. This could be great news for the estimated 125 million people around the world who suffer with this autoimmune disease.
Diabetes can lead to nerve damage known as neuropathy that is painful, permanent, irreversible and progressive. The most common symptoms of peripheral neuropathy that occurs in the extremities is a feeling of numbness and tingling and sharp, stabbing pain, especially in the feet. Researchers at Northwestern University have uncovered a new way to help diabetics get relief from diabetic neuropathy.
More research shows sitting for too long can shorten lifespan, even for those who hit the gym every day. The finding means it's important to get up and move frequently to prevent chronic diseases including diabetes, cancer and more.
Patients diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease often develop scarring that leads to narrowing or stricture of the colon. Researchers recently studied a natural protein that might be developed to help limit the amount of intestinal scarring from Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, helping spare patients from the need for surgery.
Crohn's disease affects everyone differently. Sometimes the damage causes by the form of inflammatory bowel disease is difficult to measure, making it difficult to minimize complications. A new scoring index has now been created by researchers that measures the total damage to the intestines caused by Crohn's disease.
Researchers have published findings that optimistic people have better heart health compared to pessimists. Turning your frown upside down just might help you live longer.
Researchers in India have designed a way to find out if someone is sick just by sticking out their tongue. But you don't have to be in the doctor's office to find out. A group of technical engineers have designed a digital tongue analysis software to help people in remote areas who may not have access to a physician. What can your tongue tell a doctor about your health?
Dealing with IBS or irritable bowel syndrome is difficult for anyone diagnosed with the disease. A new study highlights how the bowel disease can have an entirely different impact on men compared to women. Which gender is affected more severely and why is it important?

New predictions suggest Ebola could infect more than 1.4 million in West Africa by the end of January. Lack of public health infrastructure could mean more deaths from other illnesses in the region as well.
Dr. Richard A. Stein, a research scientist and adjunct Biology professor explains in an EmaxHealth interview why recently discovered Ebola virus mutations can help us understand the deadly disease. He emphasizes the need for preparedness and rapid containment of Ebola virus in areas of outbreaks. The genome of Ebola has been changing in ways that can even make it undetectable with diagnostic testing.
