*From MACHOs to WIMPs: meet the top five candidates for ‘dark matter’* December 14, 2015 8.33am EST When we look out at the universe – even with the most powerful of telescopes – we can only see a fraction of the matter we know must be there. In fact, for every gram’s worth of atoms in the universe, there is at least five times more invisible material called “dark matter”. So far scientists have failed to detect it, despite spending decades searching. The reason we know it exists is because of the gravitational pull of galaxy clusters and other phenomena we observe. The matter we can s... mais »

The Sugar-Cancer Connection This article appears in the January 7, 2016 issue of AICR's eNews. [image: sugar on table] Does sugar feed cancer? It’s one of the questions we get asked often.

So we prepared this video to provide an evidence-based answer to this frequently asked question. The bottom line: every cell in our bodies, including cancer cells, uses sugar (glucose) from our bloodstream for fuel. We get that blood sugar f... mais »

The gathering of ministers of health, UN organizations and academia discussed the need for strong health care systems in the conceptualization of the Global Fund, which at that time was still embryonic. All ministers of health reaffirmed primary health care as their first and foremost priority, as a human right and as a precondition for sustainable disease control. International organiz... mais »

How Four New Elements Got Seats at the Periodic Table - Jeffrey Kluger @jeffreykluger Jan. 4, 2016 Science's basic book of ingredients just got a little bigger It says something about Dmitri Mendeleev that he had an easier time keeping track of the number of protons in the nucleus of an atom than the number of brothers and sisters living under his roof. The nineteenth-century Russian chemist was the youngest of 11 siblings—unless it was 13 or 14 or maybe 16. No one ever knew, and he never clarified things for his many biographers. But then he had much bigger—and, on an elemental s... mais »
