Such technology does emit radiation, even if it’s at low levels. But 5G isn’t all that different from 4G, and it certainly doesn’t cause COVID-19 despite such […]

Credit: Shamir Medical Center Study finds hyperbaric oxygen treatments halt the aging of blood cells and reverses the aging process. A new study from Tel Aviv University (TAU) and the Shamir Medical Center in Israel indicates that hyperbaric oxygen treatments (HBOT) in healthy aging adults can stop the aging of […]

Transmitter density means greater population exposure to high levels of radio frequency electromagnetic fields. We should err on the side of caution and stop the global roll out of 5G (fifth generation) telecoms networks until we are certain this technology is completely safe, urges an expert in an opinion piece […]

Research led by the University of Birmingham and Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust has revealed new insight into the biological mechanisms of the long-term positive health effects of breastfeeding in preventing disorders of the immune system in later life. Breastfeeding is known to be associated with better health outcomes in […]

Findings may relate to underuse, overuse, or even misuse, say researchers.

In previous studies, eye movements and vision were only affected at blood alcohol concentrations (BACs) approaching the legal limit for driving (0.08% BAC), in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. New research published in The Journal of Physiology however found for the first time that hand-eye coordination is dramatically more sensitive to alcohol […]

Neuronal fibers in a healthy brain (top) and a brain with agenesis of the corpus callosum (bottom). In the healthy brain, the two hemispheres are connected by the corpus callosum fibers, shown in red. These fibers are absent in the brain with corpus callosum agenesis.

Industrially produced foods, such as snacks, chips, convenience foods, carbonated drinks, increase the risk of death, especially from cardiovascular causes. Supermarket shelves are increasingly flooded with foods produced by extensive industrial processing, generally low in essential nutrients, high in sugar, oil and salt and liable to be overconsumed. And they […]
