Scientists have discovered that a harmless virus that lives on our skin could be used as a treatment for acne. The virus, called a phage, is naturally built to target and kill bacteria that cause acne – Propionibacterium acnes. Experts at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and the University of Pittsburgh found 11 different versions of virus in this phage family that had this...

If the normal intestinal mucus barrier is altered, this may lead to inflammation and diabetes.

A new study, published this week in the journal Cell Host & Microbe, indicates that bowel may play an important role in the development of diabetes. This is a new and somehow surprising approach to diabetes, since until now most of the studies have focused on pancreas and liver. Pancreas produces insulin, the hormone that regulates sugar (glucose) blood levels and liver is the main organ wher...

This changes the gut environment and leads to a change in the bacteria growing there, the researchers said. One bacterium in particular, Bilophila wadsworthia, was identified. It thrives in the extra bile produced to break down the f...

Scientists have concluded that is 99% certain there is life on Mars after a mathematical analysis of the Red Planet soil samples taken by Viking 1 probe on July 1976. Viking 1 did find evidence of extraterrestrial microbes in soil samples from the Red Planet. Mathematical analysis of the samples concluded that salts in the soil on Mars “threw off” initial estimates – and that the soil sampl...

Dr. Gabriele Jordan, a researcher at the Institute of Neuroscience in UK, claims she has found a woman who has the ability to view 99 million more colors than the average human being. Vision is one of the most complicated of the senses, and how the eyes perceive color is broken down by ocular cells called cones. Most people have three types of cones, and are known as being trichromatic. Individua...

US scientists say carnitine, a chemical found in red meat, helps explain why eating too much steak, mince and bacon is bad for the heart. Their work has been published in the journal Nature Medicine and showed that carnitine in red meat was broken down by bacteria in the gut. This kicked off a chain of events which resulted in higher levels of cholesterol and an increased risk of heart disease. D...
