? Of Mice and Women??Mice lacking a molecule usually found on the surface of cells in the womb have fertility problems, according to a study by US researchers.
? Oil's Not Well??Cooking with highly unsaturated oils and especially re-using oils can lead to high levels of a toxic compound hydroxy-trans-2-nonenal (HNE) in the food.
? At Last, the Structure of DNA??Watson and Crick may have come up with their structure for DNA with help from Franklin's crystallographic data more than fifty years ago but it was not until the 1980s that this structure was shown beyond reasonable doubt to be a double helix.
? Clean Air Act??Airborne pathogens, such as the bacterium that causes Legionnaire's Disease and the virus responsible for avian flu, as well as putative biological agents that may be released deliberately, have led to an increased awareness of the need for sophisticated air purification.
