An international team of researchers has been examining the impact of the disease on the entire human body system, and for the first time, links between depression and oxidative stress have been highlighted in detail.

Depression affects your whole body, not just your mind, new evidence confirms

Not only does this disprove the notion that depression is entirely a mental disorder, it could also explain the condition's links with other health problems such as cancer and high mortality rates. The research, led by the University of Granada in Spain, builds on 29 previous studies that cover close to 4,000 individuals. Researchers Link Humans Brains Allowing One To Guess What The Other Is Thinking. From Aquaman to Professor Xavier, mind reading is a staple for much of sci-fi.

Researchers Link Humans Brains Allowing One To Guess What The Other Is Thinking

Yet it could be closer to reality than you might expect. In a series of experiments, researchers have been able to get two people to play a game similar to 20 questions, where one person asks a series of questions and then accurately guesses the object that another person is thinking of – despite not talking to each other, and being located over a kilometer apart. “This is the most complex brain-to-brain experiment, I think, that's been done to date in humans,” said Andrea Stocco in a statement.

Stocco is lead author of the study, which is published in PLOS ONE this week. “It uses conscious experiences through signals that are experienced visually, and it requires two people to collaborate.” The experiment can be tricky to get your head around, so bear with me here. Two people just played 20 questions by reading each other’s thoughts. Scientists in the US have linked up the brains of participants almost 1.5 km apart, allowing them to play a 20 questions-style game using nothing but their thoughts.

This is the first experiment to demonstrate that two brains can be linked up directly to allow one person to accurately guess what's on the other's mind, and it's a pretty huge deal. The experiment involved a question-and-answer game, but instead of asking each other questions in person, the participants were put in separate buildings and were not allowed to talk to each other or communicate using anything but thoughts transmitted over the Internet.

Spain Has First Case Of Diphtheria In 28 Years Thanks To Anti-Vaxxers. A six-year-old boy who had not been vaccinated is Spain’s first case of diphtheria in 28 years.

The young boy, from the Catalan city of Olot, is reportedly very ill and is being treated with antitoxin. The parents, who had chosen not to vaccinate their child, are “devastated” and have now had their younger daughter immunized as a result. Diphtheria is a bacterial infection that spreads through coughing or sneezing, according to the World Health Organization. Once infected, sufferers can experience a sore throat, fever and swollen glands in the neck. Diphtheria can lead to serious complications even with treatment, with 10% of cases resulting in death. “The family is devastated and admit that they feel tricked, because they were not properly informed,” Catalan public health chief Antoni Mateu told El País. The child remains in critical condition in Vall d’Hebron hospital’s intensive care unit, but is responding to treatment.

A pair of studies presented at a conference last week have found that women are less likely to die from lung cancer if they engage in regular and vigorous physical exercise, and that the risk of developing breast cancer can be cut by a third if a woman remains habitually active.

Exercise linked to lower risk of lung and breast cancer in women

One study, conducted by researchers at Stanford University in the US, found that even women who smoked had a lower risk of developing lung cancer if they exercised when compared to their couch potato smoker peers. "We saw that as levels of physical activity increase, risk of lung cancer decreased," lead researcher Ange Wang, said in a press release. The other study, by a team from the International Prevention Research Institute in France, linked physical exercise to lower instances of breast cancer, so long as they’d not been taking hormone replacement therapy. Wang and her team are yet to show a cause-and-effect link between the two factors. Health Check: Four Reasons To Have Another Cup Of Coffee. Why Do We Have Different Blood Types?

On the surface of the red blood cells in your body, there are tiny surface markers called antibody generators--antigens for short--whose purpose is to communicate with your immune system. Think of your red blood cells as the guests of a very exclusive VIP party. The antigens are the wristbands red blood cells need to wear in order to let the bouncers (your immune system) know whether you're on the guest list and can stay or are trying to sneak in and need to be ejected immediately. There are 33 different ways--or "systems"--to categorize blood, but the most popular system is a combination of the ABO system and the Rh system. New evidence proves chronic fatigue really is a biological disorder.

After decades of searching, researchers have finally discovered distinct immune changes that occur during chronic fatigue syndrome, proving once and for all that it’s more than just “exhaustion” or a psychological condition.

New evidence proves chronic fatigue really is a biological disorder

This is the first robust evidence that the illness, which can leave people bed-ridden for months at a time, is a biological disorder with distinct stages - and it means we'll also be able to diagnose it earlier than ever before. Just last month, the US took a big step forwards by classifying chronic fatigue as a disease, and renaming it ’system exertion intolerance disease’, or SEID.

Along with the name change, it also was given a strict set of symptoms that doctors could use to diagnose the disease. In other countries such as Australian and the UK, the condition is known medically as myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME). Är frysta grönsaker lika nyttiga som färska?
