Acetaldehyde may be the culprit behind hangovers

...uals with inactive ALDH2 do not appear to have the capability to eliminate acetaldehyde from their systems, which is why they are more susceptible to hangovers. Both Yokoyama and Ishii noted that this study's findings highlight the importance that hyper-acetaldehydemia appears to play in the development of han...

Big ears for British wheat

...d, "We have evidence that UK wheat plants have the capability from photosynthesis to produce more material than they do at the moment but they are limited by the size of their ears. We hope that the research we are doing could lift these limitations and enable traditional crossing between lines so that breeders...

Researchers discover gene that determines asthma susceptibility by regulating inflammation
