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.

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.

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.

Here`s how protein impacts intellectual disability

Here`s how protein impacts intellectual disability

A new study has paved the way for the potential treatments of intellectual disability and other neurodevelopmental disorders.

Your brain needs just the right balance between excitatory "on" signals and inhibitory "calm down" signals. Now scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have shown that a protein helps balance nerve cell communication.

Stem cells can help identify neuronal defects, suggests Study

Stem cells can help identify neuronal defects, suggests Study

According to a recent study, the researchers used stem cells derived from patients with Angelman syndrome to identify the underlying cellular defects that cause the rare neurogenetic disorder.

The study was published in journal Nature Communications.

Up until now, scientists trying to understand why the brain cells of individuals with Angelman fail to develop properly have relied primarily on mouse models that mimic the disorder.

Artificial Intelligence may help in diagnosing Tuberoculosis

Artificial Intelligence may help in diagnosing Tuberoculosis

If you are a patient of Tuberculosis, then we might have some good news for you.

According to a recent study, researchers are training artificial intelligence models to identify Tuberculosis (TB) on chest X-rays, which may help screening and evaluation efforts in TB-prevalent areas with limited access to radiologists.

The study was published in journal Radiology.

According to the World Health Organization, TB is one of the top ten causes of death worldwide. In 2016, approximately 10.4 million people fell ill from TB, resulting in 1.8 million deaths.

Frozen fruits, vegetables help achieve your nutrition goals

Frozen fruits, vegetables help achieve your nutrition goals

According to a recent study, people who consume frozen fruits and vegetable have significantly higher intakes of key nutrients, such as potassium, fiber and calcium.

The study was presented at 2017 Experimental Biology meeting.

The research analysed the data of National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) from 2011-2014.

When consumers of frozen fruits and vegetables were compared to non-consumers of frozen fruits and vegetables, the results of the studies were:

Only one in five child abuse victims treated at major trauma centres: Study

Only one in five child abuse victims treated at major trauma centres: Study

According to a new study, only one in five victims with serious injuries caused by child abuse in England and Wales gets treated at a major trauma centre.

This happens despite the fact that such children are three times more likely to die of their injuries as compared to those who have been injured unintentionally.

Physical abuse is an important cause of major trauma for children, but has a different injury and age profile from unintentional injuries.
