The Hallmarks of Aging
Aging is characterized by a progressive loss of physiological integrity, leading to impaired function and increased vulnerability to death. This deterioration is the primary risk factor for major human pathologies, including cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disorders, and neurodegenerative diseases. Aging research has experienced an unprecedented advance over recent years, particularly with the discovery that the rate of aging is controlled, at least to some extent, by genetic pathways and bioch...

Is white or whole wheat bread 'healthier?' Depends on the person
Despite many studies looking at which bread is the healthiest, it is still not clear what effect bread and differences among bread types have on clinically relevant parameters and on the microbiome. Researchers report the results of a comprehensive, randomized trial in 20 healthy subjects comparing differences in how processed white bread and artisanal whole wheat sourdough affect the body.

Injectable solution may provide weeks of glucose control
Biomedical engineers have created a biopolymer that can provide weeks of glucose control with a single injection. The new tool has the potential to replace daily or weekly insulin shots with bi-weekly or once-a-month treatments of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP1) for type 2 diabetes.

Predicting autism: Study links infant brain connections to diagnoses at age two
In previous studies, researchers linked infant brain anatomy differences to autism diagnoses at age two. Now they show differences in functional connections between brain regions at 6 months to predict autism at age two.
