Ancient oceans experienced a global surge in biological productivity

... a regional scale, and that it was not linked to a shift of nutrients but instead to a worldwide, overall increase in nutrient supply. In other words, the biogenic bloom was a lot like Camelot.

Why missing out on a good night's sleep could give you ulcers

"Soft" science? Fat's health impacts are often oversimplified, Science news feature contends

...e warnings about dietary fat may have encouraged a shift to high-carbohydrate diets, "which may be no better-perhaps even worse-than high-fat diets." America's fear of fat emerged some 50 years ago, when it quickly replaced malnutrition as the nation's top dietary concern. After World War II, Taubes explai...

Heat kills inoperable liver tumors without initiating onslaught of harmful hormones
