New Rules Make Chicken Safer ♦ Idiosyncratic' brain patterns in autism ♦ Increase in falls among the elderly ♦ Citrus scent inhibits liver cancer

FSIS RELEASES NEW SALMONELLA, CAMPYLOBACTER PERFORMANCE STANDARDS FOR POULTRY
The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates that its new pathogen performance standards for Salmonella and Campylobacter in ground poultry and chicken parts will prevent about 50,000 illnesses each year. USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service’s (FSIS) proposed changes to the Salmonella and Campylobacter Verification Testing Program create brand-new standards for Salmonella and Campylobacter in chicken breasts, legs and wings, and..

Researchers discover 'idiosyncratic' brain patterns in autism
New research suggests that the various reports -- of both over- and under-connectivity -- may, in fact, reflect a deeper principle of brain function. The study shows that the brains of individuals with autism display unique synchronization patterns, something that could impact earlier diagnosis of the disorder and future treatments Continue Reading
Study suggests increase in falls among the elderly
Over a 12-year period, the prevalence of falls among older adults appeared to be on the rise, a new American nationally representative study says Continue Reading
Citrus scent inhibits liver cancer

As main component of essential oils, terpenes can inhibit the growth of different cancer cells. Researchers have analyzed this process in liver cancer cells in detail. Their shed light upon the molecular mechanisms that resulted in cancer cells stop growing, following the application of (-)-citronellal, and they proved that the olfactory receptor OR1A2 is the crucial molecule for that purpose. In future, the olfactory receptor could serve as target for liver cancer diagnosis and therapy Continue Reading
