  1. Increased risk for breast cancer after childbirth may last more than 20 years
    The increased risk for breast cancer that occurs after childbirth can last more than 20 years. The risk may be enhanced when a woman is older at first birth or has a family history of breast cancer, and is not mitigated by breastfeeding.
  2. Lifespan extension at low temperatures is genetically controlled
    A new study indicates that lifespan extension at lower temperatures is not just a matter of turning down the thermostat: it's under active genetic control.
  3. Small and isolated habitat patches crucial to species survival
    Small, local patches of habitat could be playing a much bigger role in conserving biodiversity than you think, according to new research.
  4. Reducing variations in feeding practices and fortifying breast milk helps micro-preemies grow
    Standardizing feeding practices, including the timing for fortifying breast milk and formula with essential elements like zinc and protein, improves growth trends for the tiniest preterm infants, according to new research.
  5. Ocean fertilization by unusual microbes extends to frigid waters of Arctic Ocean
    Microbes that provide natural fertilizer to the oceans by 'fixing' nitrogen from the atmosphere into a form useable by other organisms are active in the cold waters of the Bering and Chukchi Seas.
