Experts: Too Much Sleep Could Lead To A Stroke

A study of 10,000 subjects at the University of Cambridge has surprising results. Adults tend to need between six and nine hours sleep to feel well-rested, but oversleeping has previously been linked with health problems such as diabetes or obesity. However, it was unclear from this latest study whether sleeping for more than eight hours […]

A new poll conducted by Ipsos for Reuters found that 78 percent of Americans believe all children should be vaccinated. Just over 70 percent think schools should be able to suspend unvaccinated students during outbreaks of contagious diseases. And 65 percent think schools should be able to refuse enrollment to unvaccinated children. Senator Rand Paul […]

Anti-Aging Chocolate?

That’s the claim by Lycotec, a UK-based company with research ties to Cambridge University. They’ve created “Esthechoc,” a 70 percent dark chocolate that touts some serious anti-aging claims. Researchers say the treat is so potent, just one 7.5-gram piece of the chocolate packs the same anti-oxidant punch as 100 grams of regular dark chocolate or even 300 […]

For those of us who live in the fantasy world provided by modern science, measles is caused by a virus called Paramyxoviridae, which is actually more closely related to Ebola than most people would be comfortable acknowledging (you do remember the Ebola virus, right?)

Political news took an 18th century turn this week when President Obama forced Republicans to oppose mandatory vaccinations by saying that everyone should vaccinate their kids. In short order, Chris Christie was calling for parental choice and balance in vaccine requirement, and Rand Paul was claiming that vaccines might cripple your brain, or not, but he’s […]

Lengthen chromosomes. The procedure would allow scientists to lengthen telomeres, the protective caps that are on the end of chromosomes and shorten with age. The telomeres protect chromosomes from getting damage as cells divide and grow. But as they do, they slowly become shorter and eventually are unable to protect the chromosomes. When that happens, […]

Don’t jog more than three times a week and don’t try to break the sound barrier. Heavy joggers are as likely to die as those leading a sedentary life, according to the scientists, while light joggers going at a slow or moderate pace had the lowest rates of death. The research appears to confirm growing […]

With the anti-vaccine movement rearing its ugly head at the most magical place on Earth last week, President Obama took Sunday’s pre-Super Bowl interview to make a stand on the question of whether parents should keep this whole disease eradication thing going, and in the process, may have imperiled our entire national immune system.
