Males Are Here To Stay: Sex Enhances Egg Production And Colony Fitness

by beredim in Strange Animals

To us humans, it seems extremely unnatural that other animals can reproduce without having sex. Yet with the passing of time, evolution has endowed females of several species of amphibians, insects, reptiles and fish the ability to asexually produce offsprings without "help" from males.



Now, researchers at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST) say that in ... Read more »

Radical Tails: Antioxidants Can Prevent Regeneration

by Jalees Rehman in The Next Regeneration

One of the most important take home messages of this work is that we need get rid of the common “oxidants are bad guys and antioxidants are good guys” myth. Oxidants can be harmful in some context, but they can also serve as important regenerative signals. Indiscriminate use of antioxidants can actually impair these important endogenous signals. Instead of consuming large quantities of non-specific antioxidants, we need to use antioxidants in a very targeted, context-specific and per........ Read more »

Normal people more likely to recover from depression (probably)

by Tom Rees in Epiphenom

Patients who participate in medical trials are rarely asked about their religious beliefs, so we should be grateful for any studies that do. Here's one, and it's a study of citalopram (sold as Cilexa and Cipromil), which is a modern antidepressant - a bit like Prozac.

So they got religion info on 148 patients out of the 300-odd who took part in the trial (they were a slightly unusual bunch - 64% black, 64% women, and 79% single). And they asked them about their 'Religious well-being' (i.e. whet........ Read more »
