Participants in a national survey read a scenario describing someone who had depressed symptoms. Men recommended talking to someone about their problems just as much as women did.

A diet favored by body-builders may be effective in treating schizophrenia, suggest researchers. The ketogenic diet may work by providing alternative energy sources in the form of so-called ketone bodies (products of fat breakdown) and by helping to circumvent abnormally functioning cellular energy…

An existing drug used to treat osteoporosis also protects stem cells from aging, scientists have found. These researchers now want to understand if the drug can be used to revert ageing in stem cells.

A new test for detecting biomarkers for cancer and diabetes is more than 1000x more detailed and 100% faster than existing methods, report researchers. Named 2D Mass Spectrometry (2DMS), the test provides a new tool in the rapidly expanding field research into the structure and function of…

Fish oil transforms fat-storage cells into fat-burning cells, which may reduce weight gain in middle age, new research shows. Fish oil activates receptors in the digestive tract, fires the sympathetic nervous system, and induces storage cells to metabolize fat.

More than 1 in 9 people with hepatitis C in Canada spend time in a correctional facility each year, say researchers. This presents unique opportunity to focus hepatitis C prevention and control efforts.
