Zika mosquitoes quickly invade, adapt to new climate: Study
The Zika-bearing mosquito 'Aedes aegypti' is not only spreading rapidly but has shown ability to adapt quickly to different locales, climates and human activities, according to a Yale University ecology professor. Reportedly, the mosquito survives colder winters in Washington DC by entering sewers, while droughts in California drives it to swimming pools.
Injecting young human blood found to reverse ageing in mice
Injecting blood from young people into old mice reverses signs of ageing, according to a recent study by California-based anti-ageing company Alkahest. Blood plasma from 18-year-old humans was injected twice weekly into 12-month-old mice, that are equivalent to 50-year-old humans. The ageing mice were found to perform better on memory tests and also showed increased physical activity.
