The study has come up as the latest proof of the beneficial ‘pet effect’.
Researchers explored this question in a study named‘Pet Dogs and Children’s Health: Opportunities for Chronic Disease Prevention’ released on Wednesday.
Researchers have found a new technique which could help them in influencing cells of flatworms to manipulate them to grow other flatworm species’ brains and heads, according to a new study. The finding could prove that genetics do not exclusively control the physical growth.
Researchers through some recent experiments have found that microbes living in your body that are part of the gut microbiome send signals to brain when they have had enough nutrients and stops you from eating further.
According to study researchers, almost after 20 minutes of continuous eating, E. coli bacteria, which are commonly found in human gut, starts producing proteins that scientists say are connected to a hormone responsible to suppress hunger.
The geomagnetic field of earth is not about to flip, as per a new study in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The study announced that the magnetic field may be getting weaker, but it is not below the long-term average.
Dennis Kent, a paleomagnetism expert and an author of the study, said the geomagnetic field of earth may ‘go back the other direction’ in about a century. The magnetic field is the prime reason life exists on earth. Without it, our planet would be a barren world.
A new study by Stanford University has revealed that California science textbooks portray climate change as a point of debate rather than a scientific fact. Researchers noted that these textbooks were published by some major publishers.

Blue Origin, a company started by Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos, recently launched a rocket into suborbital space and made a successful soft landing of the rocket on a pad in West Texas.
Bezos said in a statement that the uncrewed test marks as a major step towards the full rocket reusability, which could pave way for human exploration at a very low cost of spaceflight.
During a press briefing on Tuesday he said, “To be able to do a vertical landing with a fully reusable booster stage is a really big deal. It is the Holy Grail — to get full reuse”.
