IIT Bombay researchers have fabricated a carbon-based nanostructure that is capable of simultaneously adsorbing with very high efficiency four heavy metals — arsenic, chromium, cadmium and mercury — from wastewater. The nanostructure can be recycled and reused multiple times.

US families are paying over $4,500 in medical bills to have a baby. The average out-of-pocket costs for childbirth increased by 50% in 7 years. Despite an Affordable Care Act mandate that employer-based health plans cover maternity care, some are shouldering more of the expenses tied to childbirth.

Fewer than half of US clinical trials have complied with the law on reporting results, despite new regulations. High rates of non-compliance found in the new study likely reflect the lack of enforcement by regulators, and they call for trial sponsors to be held to account by the FDA.

The adage “Fake it until you make it” – the idea that someone can fake a positive attitude to elicit real-life benefits – often backfires when used with co-workers, according to a study. Instead, making an effort to actually feel the emotions you display is more productive.

Soybean oil not only leads to obesity and diabetes but also causes neurological changes, a new study in mice shows. Given it is the most widely consumed oil in the US (fast food, packaged foods, fed to livestock), its adverse effects on brain genes could have important public health ramifications.
