Medical News Today: Surgery for ulcerative colitis: What to know

Sometimes, medications for ulcerative colitis do not adequately control the symptoms, and a person may need surgery. Learn about the types of procedure and what to expect.

Medical News Today: Can ulcerative colitis be fatal?

Doctors do not usually consider ulcerative colitis (UC) to be a life-threatening condition, but it may increase a person’s risk of some serious complications. Learn more here.

Medical News Today: What's the link between ulcerative colitis and joint pain?

Ulcerative colitis (UC) is a form of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). In addition to gastrointestinal symptoms, some people with UC experience joint pain. Joint pain usually occurs with flare-ups and disappears during remission. Learn more about the link between ulcerative colitis and joint pain here.

Medical News Today: How endurance exercise affects your gut bacteria

A new study details the beneficial effects of a 6-week endurance exercise program on the gut bacterial composition of women who were overweight.

Medical News Today: Sitting, standing, walking: How do they affect your memory?

How does moderate exercise compare with sitting and standing when it comes to its impact on working memory? A new study dives into this question.

Medical News Today: Can COPD run in families?

Genetic factors can make it more likely that a person will develop chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). However, other causes, such as smoking and environmental toxins, are more significant. Preventive measures can help reduce the impact of the genetic risk factors for this disease. Learn more here.

Medical News Today: Can you take too much magnesium?

Magnesium is essential for health, but taking too much can cause problems, including digestive issues, lethargy, and an irregular heartbeat. In rare cases, an overdose can be fatal. Learn more here.

Medical News Today: What is the average age for COPD?

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease normally affects people over 40, but it can also occur in younger people. People who smoke heavily or work in environments with high exposure to pollutants may develop it earlier. Life expectancy depends on how far the disease has progressed at diagnosis and treatment plans.

Medical News Today: Differences between pimples and cold sores

Cold sores and pimples can look similar, but they are two separate conditions. Here, we examine their differences and similarities, including their causes, treatment, and prevention.

Medical News Today: Breast cancer: Marker of deadly recurrence identified

Low or no NR2F1 protein in cells that metastasize from primary breast tumors to bone marrow indicates a high risk of lethal cancer recurrence, says study.

Medical News Today: Diabetes: Surprising new role of fat revealed

New research challenges existing beliefs on the origins of diabetes, suggesting that overall fat tissue may be to blame, rather than the liver or pancreas.

Medical News Today: Keto diet may protect against cognitive decline

Our diets can influence the state of our health. Research in mice now suggests that one regimen — the ketogenic diet — may even prevent cognitive decline.

Marker may help target treatments for Crohn's patients

Crohn's disease has emerged as a global disease, with rates steadily increasing over the last 50 years. Experts have long suspected that CD likely represents a collection of related but slightly different disorders, but until now it has not been possible to predict accurately which subtype of CD a patient is likely to develop.

Why tropical forests are so ecologically diverse

The population of a tropical tree increases mostly in places where it is rare, a new study found.

Eating with your eyes: Virtual reality can alter taste

Humans not only relish the sweet, savory and saltiness of foods, but they are influenced by the environment in which they eat. Food scientists used virtual reality to show how people's perception of real food can be altered by their surroundings.

Us vs. them: Understanding the neurobiology of stereotypes

Scientists describe how non-invasive brain stimulation -- a technique he and others have pioneered to unlock the secrets of the brain -- could shed light on the neurobiology underlying implicit bias.

Best use of wildflowers to benefit crops on farms

For the first time, a new study of strawberry crops on New York farms tested this theory and found that wildflower strips on farms added pollinators when the farm lay within a ''Goldilocks zone,'' where 25 to 55 percent of the surrounding area contained natural lands. Outside this zone, flower plantings also drew more strawberry pests, while having no effect on wasps that kill those pests.

Mammals cannot evolve fast enough to escape current extinction crisis

The sixth mass extinction is underway, this time caused by humans. A team of researchers have calculated that species are dying out so quickly that nature's built-in defense mechanism, evolution, cannot keep up. If current conservation efforts are not improved, so many mammal species will become extinct during the next five decades that nature will need 3-5 million years to recover to current biodiversity levels. And that's a best-case scenario.

Cesarean-born mice show altered patterns of brain development, study finds

Cesarean-born mice show altered patterns of cell death across the brain, exhibiting greater nerve cell death than vaginally delivered mice in at least one brain area, a finding that suggests birth mode may have acute effects on human neurodevelopment that may lead to long-lasting changes in the brain and behavior.

Psychopaths in the C-Suite?

The seemingly never-ending stream of corporate scandals over the past decades, from Enron to Theranos, suggests that something is rotten in corporate leaders. Many place the blame on psychopaths, who are characteristically superficially charming but lack empathy, anxiety, or any sense of blame or guilt.
