Fungus-enhanced plants popular with grasshoppers

...Tucson, Ariz. Fungi called mycorrhizae live in the root systems of nearly all land-based plants. The fungus is not dangerous. In fact, it gives nutrients like phosphorus and nitrogen to the plant, while the plant feeds the fungus with life-giving carbon. The mutually beneficial relationship is called symb...

Stanford researcher advocates aggressive, preventive anal cancer treatment

...Not all doctors, however, agree that HPV is at the root of the cancer. Most doctors instead simply treat anal cancer once it develops rather than take a preventive approach.
