Health Research: What your father ate before you were born could influence your health ♦ Cell suicide prevention squad ♦ Certain herpes viruses can infect human neurons

What your father ate before you were born could influence your health There is increasing evidence that parents' lifestyle and the environment they inhabit even long before they have children may influence the health of their offspring. A new study sheds light on how.
Cell suicide prevention squad Recent research has shown that the cells in our bodies teeter on the brink of death. They possess intricate molecular mechanisms that promote either suicide or survival. The concept is known as programmed cell death (PCD). Since the early 2000s, when PCD was confirmed, research has focused mainly on finding genes and proteins that trigger it. however, processes aiding cell survival have not been well understood.
No two faces are the same Researchers have been studying a likely congenital dysfunction that is characterized by the inability to recognize familiar faces. The study's findings are crucial, not just for our understanding of face recognition, but also because they allow us to understand the processes behind the recognition of any visually presented object.
