Filed under: HealthAgingAlcoholScience!

There have been so many claims about red wine over the years.

Usually, it involves the compound resveratrol.

It is a compound that was thought to be able to actually greatly slow down the aging process, though to get that benefit from red wine, you'd need to drink about a thousand gallons a day.

Scientists are now claiming that

Astronaut turned author!

Mark Kelly, the husband of Gabby Giffords, is now setting his sights on children's books just four months after releasing Gabby: A Story of Hope and Courage with his wife.

The retired astronaut will be taking inspiration from his own life and putting a kid's twist to it with his new children's book Mousetronaut: A Partially True Story.

Scientists Find Skin Cancer Drug That Reverses Alzheimer's In Mice

Filed under: FitnessHealthMental HealthScience!

Yay for science!

Researchers found that a skin cancer treatment cured Alzheimer's disease in mice VERY quickly!

In a study by Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, researchers gave mega doses of bexarotene to Alzheimer's stricken mice. Within 72 hours, the mice's memory improved and half of the amyloid plaque was gone.

The scientists are quick to point that it is mice, not humans, they're dealing with.

But there is good news; since bexarotene is already FDA approved, the next phase can happen sooner than if it was a new drug.

The next phase includes testing on healthy and cancer stricken patients.

Let's hope the success continues!

Pepsi Says Mountain Dew Is So EXTEEEEEME That It Will Dissolve Mouse Carcasses

Filed under: Icky Icky PooFood

Mountain Dew Mouse Jelly

We're not so sure this is something to brag about, but they did it anyway!

There's this guy who's suing Pepsi because he claims to have found a dead mouse in his can of Mountain Dew. That's gross. That's gross even if it IS faked.

The thing is, Pepsi says that's not possible, because from the time of canning to the time of opening, that mouse carcass that he found would have been dissolved into a mousy goo — and not the relatively unharmed body that he claims to have found:

"The mouse would have dissolved in the soda had it been in the can from the time of its bottling until the day the plaintiff drank it."

MMMmmm! And people are putting gallons of this stuff in their bodies every year!

Yeah, it would suck to be sued for something like this, and it would suck for everyone to know that there might be mice in their drinks, but is it much better to tell people they're consuming mouse-dissolving-grade chemicals??

Yuck!

Experimental Cancer Vaccine Reduces Tumors Up To 80%

Filed under: HealthScience!Cancer

new cancer vaccine reduces tumor

Yay! Science has just given cancer patients an awesome Christmas present in the form of a vaccine proven to shrink cancerous tumors in mice by up to 80 percent.

Although it has only been demonstrated to be effective against similar mouse versions of breast and pancreatic tumors, researchers believe it can work for other types as well, including colorectal and ovarian cancers and multiple myeloma.

This is a breakthrough in cancer research that has been decades in the making. Sandra Gendler, a professor at the Mayo Clinic which partnered with the University of Georgia to develop the vaccine, said:
