Ancient reptile is efficient chewer

...noted, the scientists observed that one end of the worn surface showed a deeper "divot" at the junction between the hard surface enamel and the softer dentine than the other. The shape of this dentine surface indicated where sand and other particles had been jammed against the enamel, proving that the mot...

A new way for cells to die

...led in dying cancer cells, it appears to be a well worn path in brain cells, and therefore a potentially important therapeutic target."

Cloning reverses aging in cow cells, Scienceauthors say

...s can't repair themselves, they are usually slowly worn away over time--shorter telomeres are often found in older cells. Scientists spotted this telltale sign of maturity in Dolly. Her chromosomes were shorter than those of normal sheep of the same age, suggesting that she had inherited the "age" of her ...

Digging In And Taking Cover

... to absorb that, until eventually the radiation is worn down. Oddly, one of the better ways to stop radiation is with lightweight materials - hydrogen, boron, and lithium. The nuclei of heavy elements in cosmic rays can be shattered by lightweight atoms without producing additional hazardous recoil pro...

Study Shows Athletes Get No Kick From Nasal Strips

...on Sciences. "We wanted to see if the strips, when worn correctly, have any effect at this level of performance. The answer is, they don't." The strips are designed to hold the nostrils open. They make breathing through the nose easier during low or moderate activity, such as a slow jog or leisurely...
