Arctic sea ice decline driving ocean phytoplankton farther north

A new study reveals phytoplankton spring blooms in the Arctic Ocean, which were previously nonexistent, are expanding northward at a rate of one degree of latitude per decade. Although blooms did not previously occur in this area, phytoplankton were present in the Arctic's central basin at low biomass. The study also found the primary productivity of the phytoplankton, or the rate at which phytoplankton convert sunlight into chemical energy, is increasing during the spring blooms.

Dietary fiber reduces brain inflammation during aging

As mammals age, immune cells in the brain known as microglia become chronically inflamed. In this state, they produce chemicals known to impair cognitive and motor function. That's one explanation for why memory fades and other brain functions decline during old age. But, according to a new study, there may be a remedy to delay the inevitable: dietary fiber.

Natural 'breakdown' of chemicals predicts lung damage in 9/11 firefighters

Added: 15.10.2018 17:44 | 0 views | 0 comments

Abnormal levels of more than two dozen metabolites -- chemicals produced in the body as it breaks down fats, proteins and carbohydrates -- can reliably predict which Sept. 11 firefighters developed lung disease and which did not, a new analysis shows.

E-cigarette vapor disables key immune cells in the lung and boosts inflammation

Chemists advance ability to control chemical reactions

Added: 13.10.2018 18:00 | 3 views | 0 comments

Chemists have found a way to select the outcome of chemical reaction by employing an elusive and long-sought factor known as the 'impact parameter' -- the miss-distance by which a reagent molecule misses a target molecule, thereby altering the products of chemical reaction. Termed the 'forbidden fruit of reaction dynamics', the impact parameter has previously defied direct control.
