Bridging The Gap
Urine test reveals what you really eat Urine test reveals what you really eat
A urine test that can reveal how healthy your meals are has been developed by UK scientists. They think it could be used to improve nutritional advice or in weight loss because people are notoriously bad at recording their own eating habits. The test, detailed in the Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology, detects chemicals made as food is processed by the body. The research team believe it co...

Hip pain may be 'hangover from evolution' Hip pain may be 'hangover from evolution'
Scientists at the University of Oxford say a hangover from evolution could help explain why humans get so much shoulder, hip and knee pain. And if current trends continue they predict the humans of the future could be at even greater risk. They studied 300 specimens from different species spanning 400 million years to see how bones changed subtly over millennia. The changes came as man be...

Extra baby scan 'spots brain problems' Extra baby scan 'spots brain problems'
Detailed MRI scans should be offered to some women in pregnancy to help spot brain defects in the developing baby, say researchers. Ultrasounds are already used to look inside the womb and check that the baby is growing properly. However, the study on 570 women published in the Lancet showed doctors were able to make a much better diagnosis using MRI scans. Experts called for the scans to...

HIV 'game-changer' now on NHS HIV 'game-changer' now on NHS
A drug that dramatically reduces the risk of being infected with HIV will now be given to patients by the NHS in England. The health service lost a court battle in the summer after arguing responsibility for paying for it should fall to local authorities not the NHS. Now at least 10,000 people will be given the "Prep" drug in a three-year-long clinical trial. NHS England says this will he...

Bagged salad is Salmonella risk, study finds Bagged salad is Salmonella risk, study finds
Bagged salad can fuel the growth of food-poisoning bugs like Salmonella and make them more dangerous, a study says. University of Leicester scientists said the moist environment combined with nutrients leaching out of chopped leaves created the perfect breeding ground for bacteria. The researchers said they were shocked at the way the bacteria thrived, even in the fridge. They advised peo...

'First flu' affects lifetime risk 'First flu' affects lifetime risk
A person's chances of falling ill from a new strain of flu are at least partly determined by the first strain they ever encountered, a study suggests. Research in Science journal looked at the 18 strains of influenza A and the hemagglutinin protein on its surface. They say there are only two types of this protein and people are protected from the one their body meets first, but at risk from ...

Malaria drugs' complete failure tracked Malaria drugs' complete failure tracked
Scientists have developed a way to track the spread of a dangerous form of malaria that cannot be treated with the main therapy. Doctors in Cambodia reported the complete failure of artemisinin and piperaquine - the key drugs taken to kill malaria - this year. The discovery of resistance markers, reported in the Lancet, will allow scientists to track the threat. Experts said the study was...

How your mouth is linked to your migraines How your mouth is linked to your migraines
our vision starts to blur. You see flashing lights. You feel that familiar throbbing pain in your head grow stronger and stronger. About 12% of Americans experience these migraines, and a new study suggests they could be blamed on the bacteria living in their mouths. People who get migraines have a higher abundance of mouth bacteria that reduce compounds called nitrates into nitrites, which ...

What this itsy-bitsy virus took from a spider What this itsy-bitsy virus took from a spider
You would expect a spider to excel at pulling strings, but in this case, it's a virus that appears to have pulled the strings of widow spiders -- DNA strings, that is. A husband-and-wife research team at Vanderbilt University in Nashville recently discovered eerily spider-like DNA hidden within an itsy-bitsy virus named WO. The newfound DNA is somewhat similar to a portion of the gene that mak...

Tax on sugary foods and drinks backed by World Health Organisation Tax on sugary foods and drinks backed by World Health Organisation
The World Health Organisation (WHO) has added its support to countries which place a "sugar tax" on soft drinks. A new report from the body found that raising prices by 20% or more results in lower consumption and "improved nutrition". The global health group has previously advised a lower sugar intake, but stopped short of backing tax measures. Several countries, including Mexico and Hun...
