RIDICULOUS: Researchers want children born to overweight mothers to lose the weight artificially; resulting in a potential drug problem

Instead of encouraging the young to lose weight naturally, researchers at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Sydney, Australia are attempting to prevent weight gain among children born to overweight mothers artificially. In a flabbergasting new study, scientists say

Korean researchers say that mulberry leaf extract manages blood sugar levels

Researchers at Chonbuk National University Medical School in South Korea have found that taking mulberry leaf extract supplements can help lower blood sugar and insulin levels, as well as decrease triglyceride and total cholesterol levels. Earlier studies have found a link

Researchers correct genetic mutation that causes IPEX, a life-threatening autoimmune syndrome

Led by Dr. Donald Kohn and Katelyn Masiuk, the researchers engineered a ‘viral vector’ that would turn on the FoxP3 gene only in regulatory T cells — and not in other types of cells. Credit: UCLA Broad Stem Cell Research

Researchers track the birth of memories

Researchers answer decades-old question about protein found in Alzheimer’s brain plaques

Credit: CC0 Public Domain Alzheimer’s-affected brains are riddled with amyloid plaques, protein aggregates consisting mainly of amyloid-β. However, amyloid-β is a fragment produced from a precursor protein whose normal function has remained enigmatic for decades. A team of scientists at

Researchers discover new binding partner for amyloid precursor protein
