Poor grades tied to class times that don’t match our biological clocks

Poor grades tied to class times that don’t match our biological clocks

It may be time to tailor students’ class schedules to their natural biological rhythms, according to a new study from UC Berkeley and Northeastern Illinois University.   Students’ biological clocks often conflict with their class schedules, negatively impacting their academic performance. Researchers tracked the personal daily online activity profiles of nearly 15,000 college students as they logged into campus servers. After sorting the students into “night owls,” “daytime finches” and “morning larks” — based on their activities on days they were not in class — researchers compared their class times…

New Metabolic Process Can Switch Off Inflammation

New Metabolic Process Can Switch Off Inflammation

Rejoice! Scientists may have found a new way to curb chronic inflammation! Researchers from the Trinity Biomedical Sciences Institute, Dublin have discovered a new metabolic process that can switch off inflammation. They have discovered ‘itaconate’, a molecule derived from glucose, which has the power to switch off the macrophages. What are macrophages? Macrophages are the cells of the immune system, which are formed in response to various infections. It is important to note that any infection or wound cannot be healed without inflammation, however, chronic inflammation can lead to various diseases. These include…

Stress: Your brain and body

Stress: Your brain and body

      What is stress and can it be good for you? Does it kill off your brain cells and can it cause depression? How does your brain perceive a terrifying situation and prepare your body for survival?   Your body’s stress response kicks in when you perceive you are under threat. Mammals have evolved this superb mechanism to ensure we have the best possible chance of survival when faced with a life-threatening situation.   Imagine you are in the jungle and you hear movement behind you. You stop…

Flu increases the risk of heart attack

Flu increases the risk of heart attack

(Reuters Health) – Influenza is already known to be deadly, but a new study suggests that the risk of heart attack is six times greater than normal while people are ill with the flu. “I was a little bit surprised by the strength of the association. It’s not every day you see a six-fold increase in the risk during the first seven days of lab-confirmed influenza,” chief author Dr. Jeffrey Kwong told Reuters Health in a telephone interview. “We were also surprised the risk dropped off to nothing by day…

Photograph: Premier Foods/PA “Ultra-processed” foods, made in factories with ingredients unknown to the domestic kitchen, may be linked to cancer, according to a large and groundbreaking study. Ultra-processed foods include pot noodles, shelf-stable ready meals, cakes and confectionery which contain long lists of additives,…

Dim Light Affects Memory and Learning

Dim Light Affects Memory and Learning

You may want to dim the light only when you are in a mood for a romantic dinner date! Dim light during work could hamper brain health by impairing memory and learning. Spending excessive time under dim lights hampers learning abilities and memory function by changing the brain structure, says a new study published in the Hippocampus journal. This is the first-of-a-kind study where the researchers explored the link between brain structure and the normally experienced range of environmental light. Neuroscientists from the Michigan State University showed that dim lights affect the hippocampus region of the…

A Powerful New Antibiotic Discovered In Dirt

A Powerful New Antibiotic Discovered In Dirt

A potentially powerful antibiotic has been discovered by researchers in a bag of dirt from the backyard, according to a study published in the journal Nature Microbiology. Researchers at Rockefeller University in New Yorkdiscovered malacidins, a class of antibiotics that are commonly found in soil but haven’t been reported to be produced in lab-culture till date. This new class of antibiotics can be effective against various infections and drug-resistant microbes. Scientists scanned through 1500 soil samples in order to identify the new compounds. The team reported: “We extracted the DNA of the bacteria…

Bacteria found in milk and beef linked to rheumatoid arthritis

Bacteria found in milk and beef linked to rheumatoid arthritis

“Drinking milk or eating beef could cause rheumatoid arthritis, scientists warn,” reports the Mail Online. However, the story is more complicated than the headline suggests. Researchers investigated genetic mutations in the blood cells of people with rheumatoid arthritis. They believe that mutations to a gene that regulates the immune system may “take off the brakes”, so that the body mounts an over-the-top immune response which causes inflammation and damages joints and tissues. They also tested people’s blood for DNA from Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis bacteria, known as MAP. Researchers have linked…

Number Of Obese Years A Cause Of Sleep Disturbance

Number Of Obese Years A Cause Of Sleep Disturbance

Not sleeping well and wondering why? Your weight gained over the years may be the cause! Your weight at a young age and weight gain thereafter may be the reason of sleep disturbance in later life, says a study published in the journal Sleep. Sweden researchers have shown the effect of body mass index (BMI) at a young age and weight gain over years of sleep disturbance in later life. Body Mass Index (BMI) is a measure of body fat of an individual based on their height and weight. The study is…
