The Impact Of Smoking Marijuana Regularly On Your Lungs, According To Science

Smoking potEvolving attitudes about marijuana among the majority of Americans, as well as decriminalization laws starting to sweep the nation, have done little to quell questions about the health effects of longtime use among medical professionals, lawmakers, and people on both sides of an ongoing debate about the plant.

Even with a dearth of research, the general consensus in past decades has been that smoking marijuana regularly poses significant health risks. A new study out of Emory University in Atlanta, however, could challenge what has become the fundamental argument for maintaining the plant’s designation as a Schedule 1 drug.

Antibiotic breakthrough could turn the tables in battle against superbugs

Antibiotic breakthroughScientists have discovered a new class of antibiotic using a revolutionary procedure hailed as a game changer in the hunt for medicines to fight drug-resistant infections. The antibiotic, called teixobactin, kills a wide range of drug-resistant bacteria, including MRSA and bugs that cause TB and a host of other life-threatening infections.

It could become a powerful weapon in the battle against antimicrobial resistance, because it kills microbes by blocking their capacity to build their cell walls, making it extremely difficult for bacteria to evolve resistance.

Alzheimer's cure possibleAlzheimer's could be prevented and even cured by boosting the brain's own immune response, scientists at Stanford University believe.

Researchers discovered that nerve cells die because cells which are supposed to clear the brain of bacteria, viruses and dangerous deposits, stop working.
These cells, called 'microglia' function well when people are young, but when they age, a single protein called EP2 stops them operating efficiently.

Hope for dementia patients: Study suggests lost memories can be restored

Memory loss might be restorableResearchers at UCLA say new science suggests lost memories are restorable, lending hope to the millions of Americans facing early onset dementia as a result of Alzheimer's.

Until now, the best neuroscience assumed memories were stored in the synapses, the connections between neurons. Scientists believe Alzheimer's is the result of plaque buildup in brain, which degrades and kills these synapses -- erasing the memory stored there.
