  2. US surgeons test pig kidney transplant in a human US surgeons say they have successfully given a pig's kidney to a person in a transplant breakthrough they hope could ultimately solve donor organ shortages. The recipient was brain-dead, meaning they were already on artificial life support with no prospect of recovering. The kidney came from a pig that had been genetically modified to stop the organ being recognised by the body as "foreign" and being rejected. The work is not yet peer-reviewed or published but there are plans for this. Experts say it is the most advance

Exercise and the brain: three ways physical activity changes its very structure Regular exercise changes the structure of our bodies’ tissues in obvious ways, such as reducing the size of fat stores and increasing muscle mass. Less visible, but perhaps even more important, is the profound influence exercise has on the structure of our brains – an influence that can protect and preserve brain health and function throughout life. In fact, some experts believe that the human brain may depend on regular physical activity to function optimally throughout our lifetime. Here are just a few

  10. There's actually a small population of people in a village (forget the location) but anyway, they have a decreased risk of developing heart disease due to a genetic mutation which they were able to track back to a single person. Some scientists created a synthetic version of the protein responsible for the decreased risk and found from small testing done on I believe it was rats not only decreased the risk of heart disease but it appeared to reverse heart disease as well. From memory they were on stage 2 clinical trials. evolution may have found the cure to heart disease heres a source a

  18. Enlarged Prostate Doesn't Raise a Man's Odds for Cancer Far from it, a new study suggests. Also called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), the condition may actually provide some protection for men from developing prostate cancer, researchers report.

  19. More And More Humans Are Growing an Extra Artery, Showing We're Still Evolving Picturing how our species might appear in the far future often invites wild speculation over stand-out features such as height, brain size, and skin complexion. Yet subtle shifts in our anatomy today demonstrate how unpredictable evolution can be. Take something as mundane as an extra blood vessel in our arms, which going by current trends could be common place within just a few generations. An artery that temporarily runs down the centre of our forearms while we're still in the womb isn't vanishing a
