Child supplements 'mislead parents' over vitamin D Child supplements 'mislead parents' over vitamin D

Mosquitoes 'put off biting' by human diet drugs Mosquitoes 'put off biting' by human diet drugs
Scientists say they may have found a way to reduce the appetite of blood-hungry mosquitoes, by giving them human diet drugs. This left them feeling full and bloated and put them off biting, US researchers said. They said the technique could be used to prevent illnesses such as Zika, yellow fever and malaria. But their research is still in its early stages, the study in the journal Cell re...

A clinical trial has been launched to see if a breath test could detect the presence of cancer. Researchers want to find out if signals of different cancer types can be picked up in patterns of breath molecules. The Cancer Research UK team in Cambridge will collect breath samples from 1,500 people, some with cancer. If the technology is proven, the hope is that breath tests could be used ...

Fat-clogged cells explain why obesity can cause cancer Fat-clogged cells explain why obesity can cause cancer
A new discovery could explain why obese people are more likely to develop cancer, scientists say. A type of cell the body uses to destroy cancerous tissue gets clogged by fat and stops working, the team, from Trinity College Dublin, found. Obesity is the biggest preventable cause of cancer in the UK after smoking, Cancer Research UK says. And more than one in 20 cancer cases - about 22,80...

Five-minute scan 'can predict cognitive decline' Five-minute scan 'can predict cognitive decline'
A five-minute scan could be used to spot people at risk of dementia before symptoms appear, researchers claim. Scientists used ultrasound scanners to look at blood vessels in the necks of more than 3,000 people and monitored them over the next 15 years. They found those with the most intense pulses went on to experience greater cognitive decline over the next decade than the other study part...
