Young male cyclists are the most likely to die after being involved in a traffic accident

76717 A study by researchers at the University of Granada has demonstrated that mortality among cyclists varies widely depending on the age and sex of the population. Male cyclists, above all those aged between 15 and 24 years, are more likely to die than adults (25-34 years), which could be explained by their greater exposure… Seguir Leyendo Young male cyclists are the most likely to die after being involved in a traffic accident

A study relates the level of pollutants accumulated in the body with obesity levels

74859 A team of Spanish scientists, which includes several researchers from the University of Granada, has confirmed that there is a relation between the levels of certain environmental pollutants that a person accumulates in his or her body and their level of obesity. Subjects with more pollutants in their organisms present besides higher levels of… Seguir Leyendo A study relates the level of pollutants accumulated in the body with obesity levels

Spanish scientists modify with pulsed light the protein that causes most allergies to milk

74555 he researchers have managed to modify a type of lactose protein called β-lactoglobulin artificially by means of a treatment with pulsed light. This protein, which is present in lactose serum, is responsible for approximately 10% of milk-related allergies. As a result of this treatment, milk becomes much more digestible.   Julia Maldonado-Valderrama, a researcher… Seguir Leyendo Spanish scientists modify with pulsed light the protein that causes most allergies to milk
