Extended Radiation Exposure could speed up Alzheimer’s disease in Astronauts

Wed, 02 Jan 2013 01:29:17 +0000

(image)

(Best Syndication News) - A recent animal study suggests that cosmic radiation could speed up the onset of Alzheimer’s disease in astronauts traveling on deep space missions. The scientists published their findings in the journal PLOS ONE.

Senior study author, M. Kerry O’Banion, M.D., Ph.D., a professor in the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) Department of Neurobiology and Anatomy, explained the cancer health risk factor due to radiation exposure in space has already been acknowledged. However, their researchers wanted to see if there was a risk for developing cognitive problems from the radiation exposure, which could lead to an accelerated onset of Alzheimer’s disease.

The Earth’s magnetic field provides protection from much of the radiation, but when astronauts travel into space they exposed to a variety of radioactive particles.

Mountains on Hawaiian Islands dissolving from the Inside

Mon, 24 Dec 2012 05:58:13 +0000

(image)

(Best Syndication News) - It will not be happening anytime soon, but scientists believe that groundwater and streams are dissolving mineral material from within the mountains of Hawaii eventually causing the landmass to flatten. Surface erosion will not be the largest contributor to flattening these mountains and scientists believe this process will take more than 1.5 million years just to start.

Before the terrain flattens, the mountains of Oahu will continue to rise in elevation as the island is pushed to the northwest. The mountains should continue to rise for 1.5 million years, explained scientists from the Brigham Young University.
