Health Research: Pesticide found in milk decades ago may be associated with signs of Parkinson’s ♦ Using 'big data' to fight flu ♦ Preventing diabetes at the office

Pesticide found in milk decades ago may be associated with signs of Parkinson’s A pesticide used prior to the early 1980s and found in milk at that time may be associated with signs of Parkinson's disease in the brain.
Using 'big data' to fight flu Thanks to 'big data', researchers have identified new molecules that are instrumental in the replication of the flu virus. If these host proteins are blocked, influenza viruses are unable to multiply as effectively. The international study therefore makes a significant contribution towards the development of new treatments and flu drugs.
Preventing diabetes at the office For people who already have high blood sugar, preventing diabetes could amount to just another day at the office. Employees enrolled in a workplace intervention program as a group lost more weight, showed greater reductions in fasting blood sugar and ate less fat than employees who received only written health guidelines for diabetes prevention.
Potential treatment for cirrhosis discovered by scientists Cirrhosis is the main risk factor for liver cancer. The same target may be the key to preventing and treating this condition, suggests researchers at the conclusion of a recent study. Cirrhosis is among the top 20 causes of death from disease worldwide.
