A provocative new study is suggesting a gene variant strongly associated with increased Alzheimer's risk in later life could affect cognitive health in childhood. The research reveals those carrying the gene score slightly lower on IQ tests in childhood, implying cognitive decline is apparent at a younger age than ever previously realized. ..

Last year, Chinese scientist He Jiankui shocked the world with the revelation the first ever CRISPR gene-edited babies had been born. It was revealed at least two babies had been born with explicit modifications to a gene called CCR5. A massive genome study by two scientists from UC Berkeley has found this CRISPR gene edit may be associated with a higher rate of early mortality in later li
Risk of Rain 2 has sold over 1 million units during its first month on Steam Early Access, according to developer Hopoo Games. ...
We've already heard that eating walnuts may assist people in losing weight. Well, that's not all that they're potentially good for. A new study suggests that consuming the nuts might also help people at risk of heart disease to lower their blood pressure...

The 3D followup to the 2013 release Risk of Rain is running a limited time promotion to get more eyes on the game and encourage players to team up in its co-op mode. ...
Parched land areas covered in withering flora can be a pretty sure indicator of drought, but the state of affairs beneath the Earth's surface is a critical factor too. Advanced scientific instruments in orbit around the planet have given us the ability to track its stocks of groundwater resources, which researchers are now figuring out how to tap into to build more accurate predictions of
A new online tool has been developed that allows GPs to effectively calculate a patient's risk of developing breast cancer. The system is the first to combine a broad array of different elements, including genetics and environmental factors, to come up with a precise risk evaluation that could be used to customize screening timetables or prompt preventative therapies...

A new study from the Telethon Kids Institute in Australia has revealed a possible association between intellectual disability and some specific forms of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART). Experts are urging caution when interpreting these results as it is unclear exactly what may be causing the increased rates of intellectual disability... Continue Reading Experts urge caution over st
Using data from nearly half a million people, a team of researchers has developed what they are calling a Genomic Risk Score (GRS), which can assess a person's genetic risk factor for developing coronary heart disease. The test will allow doctors to combine a GRS with other risk factors to better target at risk individuals... Continue Reading Adult heart attack risk can be predicted in chi
A small but intriguing study has revealed a machine-learning algorithm can effectively predict the social outcomes of patients with depression or psychosis better than human experts. The research found the AI tool outperformed clinician predictions when estimating a patient's social functioning up to a year in the future...
