  • Salton Sea aerosol exposure triggers unique and mysterious pulmonary response
    on June 23, 2021 at 1:12 pm

    Communities surrounding the Salton Sea, the inland body of water straddling California’s Riverside and Imperial counties, show high rates of asthma due, possibly, to high aerosol dust levels resulting from the sea shrinking over time. Scientists suspect, however, the Salton Sea plays an additional role in pulmonary health. A new study performed on mice has found Salton Sea aerosol turns on nonallergic inflammation genes and may also promote lung inflammation.

  • Combining three techniques boosts brain-imaging precision
    on June 23, 2021 at 1:12 pm

    Researchers have developed a method to combine three brain-imaging techniques to more precisely capture the timing and location of brain responses to a stimulus. Their study is the first to combine the three widely used technologies – fMRI, EEG and EROS – for simultaneous imaging of brain activity.

  • Starchy snacks may increase CVD risk; fruits and veggies at certain meals decreases risk
    on June 23, 2021 at 1:12 pm

    Eating fruits with lunch, vegetables at dinner and a dairy snack in the evening was associated with a reduced risk of early death by cardiovascular disease (CVD) and all-cause mortality, according to a study of U.S. adults. Eating a Western lunch (typically containing a high quantity of refined grains, cheese and cured meat) was associated with an elevated risk of CVD and all-cause mortalities in the same study.
