Anger causing heart attacks. +LabRoots, Inc 
The risk of heart attack has been found to be 8.5 times higher in the two hours following an acute episode of anger than during the "usual frequency" patterns of anger. The findings emerged from a well controlled study in which acute coronary blockage was angiographically confirmed in patients hospitalized for suspected heart attack. This elevated state of anger or anxiety preceding the myocardial infarction (MI, heart attack) was also found to b...

Massive craters in Siberia. +LabRoots, Inc 
Last summer, the discovery of a giant crater, nearly 100 feet wide, in the middle of what is known as “the ends of the earth” in Siberia shocked researchers. The crater’s origin could not be explained. Then they found two more. Reasoning for these mysterious holes surfaced as global warming. Global warming had thawed out permafrost, which caused methane trapped within the frozen ground to explode. One of the researchers had said, “Gas pressure in...

Amazing hole in cloud.  +LabRoots, Inc 
According to The National Weather Service: High to mid level clouds ... are often composed of tiny water droplets that are much colder than freezing, but have yet to freeze. These 'supercooled' water droplets need a 'reason' to freeze, which usually comes in the form of ice crystals. Planes passing through the cloud layer can bring these ice crystals. Once the ice crystals are introduced, the water droplet quickly freeze, grow and start to fall. ...

Beating Brain Cancer.  +LabRoots, Inc 
A study published in Science Translational Medicine showed that immune cells engineered to seek out and attack a type of deadly brain cancer can be both safe and effective at controlling tumor growth in mice reated with these modified cells. A team from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and the Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research has paved the way for a newly opened clinical trial for glioblastoma patients...

Preventive Mechanism. +LabRoots, Inc 
Scientists have shown that small molecules can “hijack” enzyme function in mice, suggesting a possible preventive mechanism for alcohol-related cancers in an at-risk population. Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have found that by changing the selectivity of an enzyme, a small molecule could potentially be used to decrease the likelihood of alcohol-related cancers in an at-risk population. Enzymes are enablers. The...
