MSU Bioresearchers Discover Link Between Liver Cancer and Mold

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Dec 11, 2014

It happens to everyone: you open the fridge, excited for a slice of delicious cheese, only to find fuzzy mold growing on your food. As tempting as it may be, eating the seemingly clean, not moldy parts is not advisable, according to a paper recently published from Michigan State University, which explains a newly discovered link between moldy food and liver cancer. It goes on to provide direction on the best ways to mitigate the effects of such mold as well as to reduce the population’s intake of mold in the first place.

MSU Researchers Develops Water Striding Sensor

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Jun 26, 2014

For instance, how do we make an anesthetic strong enough to make a scorpion sting painless? And what can we do to keep antibiotics from becoming ineffective? Today’s question, posed by researchers at Michigan State University, is: how can we quickly gather precise water pollution data over entire rivers and lakes? To which nature answers: send in a fleet of water striders.
