Low power laser treatment could help grow your teeth back – light stimulates dentin to form

No more fillings! Scientists have figured out how to regenerate dentin, the material inside our teeth.

 

The new study published in Science Translational Medicine shows that a low-power laser can trigger stem cells in your tooth to form dentin.

 

As Sarah Zhang reports for Gizmodo, currently dentists can only replace damaged dentin with synthetic material, for example, when you get a filling or root canal.

 

But using this new technique, dentists may soon be able to actually regrow your tooth.

New ‘Breakthrough’ Transgenic Mosquitoes could spread male infertility to other species including humans

A team led by Andrea Crisanti at Imperial College London in the UK was widely reported to have made a breakthrough or even a ‘quantum leap’ in creating transgenic mosquitoes that could eradicate malaria.

 

Unfortunately, those mosquitoes are potentially the most hazardous genetically modified organism to have yet been created, and they should go no further from the laboratory.

 

The researchers have not considered the risks involved, which would have been obvious from a casual review of existing literature…

Scientists Confirm Israel Health Minister’s Fluoridation Concerns are Justified

According to the Fluoride Action Network, scientists and professionals from around the world applaud the decision made by Israel Health Minister, Yael German, to end mandatory fluoridation in Israel to protect the health of Israelis. They decry the political backlash she has received, and the pressure brought to bear on her to reverse a scientifically sound decision.

Sleep After Learning Strengthens Connections Between Brain Cells and Enhances Memory ~ NYU Langone Medical Center

from the website

 

“In study published today in Science, researchers at NYU Langone Medical Center show for the first time that sleep after learning encourages the growth of dendritic spines, the tiny protrusions from brain cells that connect to other brain cells and facilitate the passage of information across synapses, the junctions at which brain cells meet. Moreover, the activity of brain cells during deep sleep, or slow-wave sleep, after learning is critical for such growth.

 

“The findings, in mice, provide important physical evidence in support of the hypothesis that sleep helps consolidate and strengthen new memories, and show for the first time how learning and sleep cause physical changes in the motor cortex, a brain region responsible for voluntary movements.”
