Scientists can now show how alcohol increases cancer risk by damaging DNA in stem cells. Previous research has looked at the precise ways alcohol causes cancer; however, it has only been done in cell cultures. In this new research, mice have…
Researchers have found that when media portray a shooting victim in a negative way, it not only leads people to blame the victim for their own death, but also leads people to sympathize with the shooter.
While we read stories in the national media of a possible catastrophic eruption of the Yellowstone volcanic area, scientists are not so sure of the likelihood of such an event. In an effort to better understand the region’s subsurface geology,…

New research indicates that if women are exposed to air pollution just prior to conception, or during the first month of pregnancy, they face an increased risk of their children being born with birth defects, such as cleft lip, palate,…
Researchers have developed a new technique that can be used to monitor the seismic activities around fracking operations that may help to reduce the likelihood of larger and potentially damaging earthquakes from occurring.
It has never really been understood how our atmosphere protects us against meteoroid impacts. It’s well recognized that meteoroids often explode before they reach Earth’s surface; however, researchers were uncertain as to why this happened until now.
A new and highly effective method in detecting tiny tumors and tracking their spread has now been invented. This new method has the potential to detect cancer earlier, and also help with a more precise treatment.
