To help prevent painful symptoms and reduce the need for medication, this may be the next step in treating the health is...
How well you do on a treadmill may actually predict when you'll die. Scientists have analyzed data from 58,000 heart stress tests and have developed a formula that estimates one's risk of dying over a decade based on treadmill exercise ability.
New findings published in the journal Brain now show that amyloids, the abnormal proteins found in accumulation in the brain that are a hallmark of the health issue, can be found in individuals as young as 20 years old.
Scientists have discovered that our ability to respond to the challenges of a fast-changing culture comes from our brains' ability to flexibly combine and repurpose the neural resources that evolution provided us.
New findings presented at the Society of Interventional Radiology's Annual Scientific Meeting discussed a new weapon for those dealing with chronic plantar fascilitis.
