Chronic alcohol abuse damages regulating hormones

...ical and psychological stress-response systems can sustain damage despite many months of abstinence. "Vasopressin, or AVP, is a hormone that is also part of the stress regulatory system," said Ehrenreich.

One theory holds that stabilizing forces are required for many species to coexist. "For example, one might imagine that, if one species i...

Migration takes guts

Experiments showed that 96% of kidney cells survived for one week and 95% of liver cells survived for two weeks. They also implanted an experim...

Searching for the 'real' waterworld

...arth. While waterworlds seem to have everything to sustain life, there is a big question mark over whether they could actually allow it to start in the first place. One of the leading theories for life's origin in deep oceans is that it requires hot springs on the ocean floor, heated by volcanic activity li...
