Go (over) easy on the eggs: ‘Egg-cess’ consumption linked to diabetes

Scrambled, poached or boiled, eggs are a popular breakfast food the world over. Yet the health benefits of the humble egg might not be all they’re cracked up to be as new research shows that excess egg consumption can increase your risk of diabetes.

Prenatal thyroid hormones influence ‘biological age’ at birth

The environment we experience in early-life is known to have major consequences on later-life health and lifespan. A new study using an avian model suggests that increased prenatal exposure to maternal thyroid hormones could have beneficial effects on the ‘biological age’ at birth.

A key player behind parental chromosome matching during meiosis

Researchers have clarified how homologous chromosome pairing — a process necessary for sperm and egg formation where paternally- and maternally-derived chromosomes match and exchange genetic information during meiosis — attracts factors that play a monitoring role. Since details on the genetic information exchange mechanism during meiosis have not yet been clarified, this research may lead to future advances in reproductive medicine, such as the identification of the causes of infertility.

Half-a-billion year old microfossils may yield new knowledge of animal origins

When and how did the first animals appear? Science has long sought an answer. Researchers have now jointly found, in Greenland, embryo-like microfossils up to 570 million years old, revealing that organisms of this type were dispersed throughout the world.
