Zika virus 'scarier than thought' says US Zika virus 'scarier than thought' says US
The Zika virus is "scarier" than first thought and its impact on the US could be greater than predicted, public health officials have admitted. A wider range of birth defects has been linked to the virus, said Dr Anne Schuchat of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Huge leap to mass produced platelets Huge leap to mass produced platelets
Scientists have made a significant leap towards mass producing platelets - the part of the blood that forms clots. The NHS and University of Cambridge team have discovered how to grow the body's platelet factories in the laboratory. It could provide a new source of platelets to stop heavy bleeding, for example after a car crash. But the researchers need to make the process more efficient ...

Promising lab-grown skin sprouts hair and grows glands Promising lab-grown skin sprouts hair and grows glands
Scientists in Japan have successfully transplanted mice with lab-grown skin that has more of the organ's working parts in place than ever before. Starting with stem cells made from a mouse's gums, they managed to craft skin with multiple layers - as well as hair follicles and sweat glands. When implanted into a "nude mouse" with a suppressed immune system, it integrated well and sprouted hai...

WHO downgrades Ebola health risk WHO downgrades Ebola health risk
Ebola is no longer an "extraordinary health event" and the risk of the virus spreading is low, the World Health Organization says. It means the disease is not thought to be a significant public health threat to countries outside of those affected in West Africa.

'Cold turkey' best way to quit smoking, study shows 'Cold turkey' best way to quit smoking, study shows
People who want to quit smoking are more likely to succeed if they go "cold turkey" by stopping abruptly, a study in Annals of Internal Medicine shows. Volunteers who used this approach were 25% more likely to remain abstinent half a year from the date that they give up than smokers who tried to gradually wean themselves off instead. The NHS says that picking a convenient date to quit is imp...

Peanut allergy theory backed up by new research Peanut allergy theory backed up by new research
The effects of eating peanut products as a baby to avoid the risk of allergy have been backed up by new research. In 2015, a study claimed early exposure to peanut products could cut the risk of allergy by 80%. Now researchers say "long-lasting" allergy protection can be sustained - even when the snacks are later avoided for a year. The New England Journal of Medicine study looked at 550 ...

Breakthrough in cancer research could spawn new treatments Breakthrough in cancer research could spawn new treatments
A new breakthrough in cancer research could lead to a novel form of cancer treatment -- one that is highly specialized for each patient. Researchers discovered that even though cancer cells mutate wildly within a person's body, the cancer cells within each patient also have common mutations -- ones that could be isolated and fought off by certain immune cells. Think of it this way: A patient...

Best tech to keep your workouts on track Best tech to keep your workouts on track

Obesity linked to 'worse memory' Obesity linked to 'worse memory'
People who are obese have a worse memory than their thinner friends, a small study shows. Tests on 50 people showed being overweight was linked to worse "episodic memory" or the ability to remember past experiences. The study in the Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology argues that a less vivid memory of recent meals may lead to overeating. However, other aspects of memory - such a...
