In remote areas of the world, everyday items like electrical outlets and batteries are luxuries. Health care workers in these areas often lack electricity to power diagnostic devices, and commercial batteries may be too expensive. Today, researchers report a new type of battery -- made of paper and fueled by bacteria -- that could overcome these challenges.
|Weaponizing oxygen to kill infections and disease|

The life-threatening bacteria MRSA can cripple a medical facility since it is resistant to treatment. But scientists report that they are now making advances in a new technique that avoids antibiotics, instead using light to activate oxygen, which wipes out bacteria. The method also could be used to treat other microbial infections, and possibly even cancer.
|Intestinal Bacteria Can Generate Electric Current, Study Shows|
Added: 20.09.2018 13:55 | 20 views | 0 comments
Scientists already know that bacteria can create an electric current outside their own cell, known as extracellular electron transport. This has been demonstrated and analyzed in detail in some bacteria that specialize in the metabolism of metal salts. A team of researchers from Lund University and the National University of Ireland Galway has now studied [...]
|Santi Cazorla: Villarreal midfielder on Steven Gerrard, Arsenal & gangrene|

As he prepares to face Rangers in the Europa League, Villarreal's Santi Cazorla recalls how bacteria ate eight centimetres of his Achillies tendon.
|Anti-inflammatory protein promotes healthy gut bacteria to curb obesity|
Added: 19.09.2018 23:18 | 7 views | 0 comments
Scientists have discovered that the anti-inflammatory protein NLRP12 normally helps protect mice against obesity and insulin resistance when they are fed a high-fat diet. The researchers also reported that the NLRP12 gene is underactive in people who are obese, making it a potential therapeutic target for treating obesity and diabetes, both of which are risk factors for cardiovascular disease and other serious conditions.
|Characterization of pregnancy microbiome reveals variations in bacterial diversity|
