Study: High Fructose Intake Increases Risk of Breast and Lung Cancer

You need to be little cautious if you love eating western diet rich in high sucrose and fructose levels. As per a new study, researchers have found increase in risk of developing breast and lung cancer in women who eat more of western diet including sugary content. Researchers from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center conducted the research on mice and found increased risk of breast and lung cancer in mice who consumed high sucrose and fructose levels.

Astronomers develop new technique for detecting habitable planets around distant stars

Astronomers develop new technique for detecting habitable planets around distant stars

A team of astronomers claimed to have developed a new tool to find habitable planets in other solar systems by measuring the surface gravity of the stars that are too distant to be studied with conventional methods.

Astronomers have already identified at least a dozen “Goldilocks” planets in other solar systems that are neither too hot nor too cold, but just right to support life. But a planet’s likelihood to support life depends on its star’s properties. Determining the star’s surface gravity can suggest the size and other details of the planets in its system.

New 3-D Printing Technique to Create Ceramics could help build Next-Gen Spaceships

New 3-D Printing Technique to Create Ceramics could help build Next-Gen Spaceships

From past long time engineers have liked ceramic parts for the strong, light weight and better heat handle properties. Ceramic is ideal for crafting parts of airplanes and rockets and is used in making heat-shielding tiles on the space shuttle. As per the new report, researchers have used a 3-D printer to make customized ceramic parts that have also overcome the Achilles’ heel of ceramic objects: their tendency to crack. The findings could help create a new class of ceramic-body or ceramic-engine jets, perhaps even a hypersonic craft that can fly from New York to Tokyo in a few hours.

High amount of sugar in Western diet may raise risk of breast cancer and metastasis of lungs

A new study in mice unveiled that high levels of sugar commonly found in Western diets increases risk for breast cancer and metastasis to the lungs. Researchers from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center came to know that fructose encouraged breast tumor growth and helped it to spread.

Woman arrested for DWI without drinking freed later after diagnosed with ‘Auto-Brewery’ Syndrome

Without being drunk, woman faced charges for DWI, but being diagnosed with a rare condition ‘Auto-Brewery’ syndrome, helped her free from the charges. The syndrome is such where the digestive system becomes its own small brewery.

The woman’s lawyer presented evidence by a doctor that she had the rare syndrome. Attorney Joseph Marusak said that he has never heard of this syndrome before this case. “But I knew something was amiss when the hospital police took the woman to wanted to release her immediately because she wasn't exhibiting any symptoms”, affirmed Marusak.
