Sterblichkeit und Mikrostaub: Jedes Mikrogramm ist zu viel

7. Juli 2017 – Eine soeben im New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM)  veröffentlichte grosse Studie aus den USA zeigt auf, dass auch bei niedrigen Feinstaubwerten die Sterblichkeit steigen kann.

Eine Belastung durch Feinstaub geht auch unterhalb der in den USA gesetzlich gültigen Grenzwerte mit einer erhöhten Sterblichkeit einher,

  • Findings in mice reveal possibilities for fetal drug therapy for deafness April 6, 2020
    New research led by hearing scientists at Oregon Health & Science University suggests an avenue to treat and prevent intractable genetic disorders before birth.
  • Study of rare genetic disorder that effects the eyes April 3, 2020
    Nagano prefecture is home to a group of people affected with a rare genetic neurodegenerative disorder called familial amyloid polyneuropathies (FAP). This disease impacts the gene encoding protein transthyretin (TTR) which is produced in the liver and also eyes. Liver transplants are often a treatment for this disease, but severe eyesight problems such as cloudiness […]
  • Natural sunscreen gene influences how we make vitamin D April 2, 2020
    Genetic variations in the skin can create a natural sunscreen, according to University of Queensland researchers investigating the genes linked with vitamin D.
  • Single mutation leads to big effects in autism-related gene April 2, 2020
    A new study in Neuron offers clues to why autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is more common in boys than in girls. National Institutes of Health scientists found that a single amino acid change in the NLGN4 gene, which has been linked to autism symptoms, may drive this difference in some cases. The study was conducted […]
  • Lifestyle changes could delay memory problems in old age, depending on our genes April 2, 2020
    Researchers from King's College London have shown that how we respond to changes in nutrients at a molecular level plays an important role in the aging process, and this is directed by some key genetic mechanisms.
  • Fiber consumption linked to lower breast cancer risk April 6, 2020
    Consuming a diet high in fiber was linked with a reduced incidence of breast cancer in an analysis of all relevant prospective studies. The findings are published early online in CANCER, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Cancer Society (ACS).
  • Stronger Atlantic currents drive temperate species to migrate towards the Arctic Ocean April 6, 2020
    The Arctic Ocean increasingly resembles the Atlantic, not only regarding its temperature but also the species that live there. However, scientists from the CNRS and Université Laval, Quebec showed that an unprecedented strengthening of Atlantic currents is playing a major role in this phenomenon called 'Atlantification.' The research team studied Emiliania huxleyi, a marine microalgae […]
  • Viruses don't have a metabolism; but some have the building blocks for one April 6, 2020
    'Giant viruses' are many times larger than typical viruses and have more complex genomes. Using publicly available metagenome data, researchers at Virginia Tech assembled genomes for more than 500 giant viruses and found a surprising number of genes for cellular metabolic cycles, including glycolysis, gluconeogenesis, and the TCA cycle. Viruses may deploy these genes to […]
  • AI techniques used to improve battery health and safety April 6, 2020
    Researchers have designed a machine learning method that can predict battery health with 10x higher accuracy than current industry standard, which could aid in the development of safer and more reliable batteries for electric vehicles and consumer electronics.
  • Evaluating grip strength to identify early diabetes April 6, 2020
    A new study in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, published by Elsevier, reports valuable new grip strength metrics that provide healthcare practitioners with an easy-to-perform, time-efficient screening tool for type 2 diabetes (T2DM).
