NASA eyes intensifying tropical cyclone 'Frances'

NASA eyes intensifying tropical cyclone 'Frances'

Two NASA satellites have provided forecasters in Australia with visible and rainfall data as tropical cyclone 'Frances' strengthened in the western Timor Sea.

NASA's Aqua satellite has captured a visible image of the storm that showed a cloud-filled eye, while the Global Precipitation Measurement Mission or GPM core satellite found heaving rainfall occurring.

Frances formed north of Melville Island, Australia on April 27, 2017.

Frances has been gradually intensifying while moving south-southwestward through the Timor Sea.

For plastic surgeons: Learning 'danger zones' ensures better results

A team of researchers has suggested that plastic surgeons should pay particular attention to the six danger zones from the forehead to the chin - areas commonly addressed by facial filler injection - to enhance safety and effectiveness of treatment.

Dermal fillers have become a popular alternative to surgery for patients who want a younger facial appearance as the injection of soft tissue dermal fillers can reduce facial lines, wrinkles and restore a fuller, younger-looking facial appearance.

Ailing from chronic inflammation? Here is why

Are you suffering from chronic intestinal disorders? Blame your body's immune system for that.

According to a new research, it has been discovered that too much much of oncogene Bcl-3 leads to chronic intestinal diseases. The study also reveals that how it throws the immune system off-balance.

The research found that chronic intestinal disorders such as ulcerative colitis and crohn's disease are caused by the body's own immune defense system. Sufferers frequently experience episodic symptoms such as abdominal pain, cramps, and diarrhea.

Preparing Italian style coffee may cut prostate cancer risk

Dear men, just three cups of coffee, prepared in an Italian way - high pressure, very high water temperature and with no filters - may reduce risk of prostate cancer by more than 50 percent, finds a study.

A research by the Department of Epidemiology and Prevention - I.R.C.C.S. Neuromed, Italy, in collaboration with the Italian National Institute of Health and the I.R.C.C.S. Istituto Dermopatico dell'Immacolata of Rome, shows that three or more cups a day can lower prostate cancer risk. An antitumor action confirmed also by laboratory experiments.

Here's why milk is good for your child's growth

A recent study suggests dairy proteins may be an even higher quality source of protein compared to vegetable-based protein sources than previously thought.

Using pigs as models, researchers at the University of Illinois studied the best way of evaluating protein quality in foods eaten by children.

For this, they used the method that was proposed by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations in 2011.

Soy protein eases severity of inflammatory bowel disease

Soy protein eases severity of inflammatory bowel disease

People suffering from inflammatory bowel diseases should eat a diet supplemented with soy protein as it may serve as an effective adjunct therapy.

Penn State researchers reported the results after completing a study that included mice and cultured human colon cells.

The findings are significant because inflammatory bowel diseases -- including ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease -- are characterized by either continuous or periodic inflammation of the colon and represent a significant risk factor for colon cancer.

Mothers drinking colas increase risk of obesity in kids

Pregnant or breastfeeding mothers should avoid taking diet high in fructose-containing sugars as it increases the risk of their kids being obese or diabetic.

This is according to a new rat study published in The Journal of Physiology.

Many cereals, sugary soft drinks and other processed foods have fructose-containing sugars, including sucrose and high fructose corn syrup (HFCS).

Most religious people 'morally uncomfortable' with reproductive techs

As new and more effective human reproductive genetic technologies (RGTs) develop, religious people are likelier to disapprove of these tools than nonreligious people, a new Rice University study found.

Evangelical Christians are the most likely of any religious group to stand in opposition, the researchers found.
