Researchers find a genetic overlap between schizophrenia and autism
Medical News Today
Researchers have identified mutations in genes that control epigenetic regulation, which may contribute to both schizophrenia and autism. Schizophrenia affects about 1 percent of the adult population. Currently, schizophrenia can only be diagnosed by observing behavior and measuring the duration of the symptoms and functional impairment. There is little biological understanding of the disease, which has presented a barrier in developing more precise diagnosis and more effective treatments.

Stinging nettle: What does it treat?
Monthly Prescribing Reference
With a name like stinging nettle, consumers are not likely to sample this perennial plant. Urtica dioica, a herbaceous flowering plant, is considered the porcupine of the plant world. Its leaves and stems have tiny, needlelike fibers that act like hypodermic needles, injecting histamine and other chemicals into the skin. The needles pump a mixture of acetylcholine, histamine, serotonin, moroidin, leukotrienes and formic acid into the epidermis, producing a stinging or burning sensation.

Debunking the myth: Red meat and eggs not so bad after all
By Lauren Swan
The early 2000s were full studies that suggested people should no longer eat eggs or red meat due to health issues. Information came out that exposed the risks of eating eggs, which included heart disease and raised cholesterol levels. Red meat was accused of causing heart failure and heart disease. The following years saw Americans avoid red meat and eggs at all costs. But how correct were those studies? New research is now being presented in the U.K. and the U.S. that debunk the previous beliefs that eggs and red meat are hazardous for your health. Perhaps they're not so bad after all.
