40-Year Math Mystery and Four Generations of Figuring

In 1977, Princeton mathematician Paul Seymour made a conjecture about certain large graphs. Nearly 40 years later, Georgia Tech mathematicians have come up with a proof he was right. The conjecture is 13 words long; the proof covers 120 pages of math reasoning.

Grill with Caution: Wire Bristles from Barbecue Brushes Can Cause Serious Injuries

While many people view Memorial Day weekend as the unofficial start of the summer grilling season, they may not be aware of the dangers of eating food cooked on grills cleaned with wire-bristle brushes. A new study conducted at the University of Missouri School of Medicine identified more than 1,600 injuries from wire-bristle grill brushes reported in emergency rooms since 2002. Loose bristles can fall off the brush during cleaning and end up in the grilled food, which, if consumed, can lead to injuries in the mouth, throat and tonsils. Researchers advise individuals to inspect their food carefully after grilling or consider alternative grill-cleaning methods.

Chemo, Radiation, Surgery Combo Boosts Survival for Pancreatic Cancer Patients with Veins Involved

In roughly one-third of pancreatic cancer patients, tumors have grown around the pancreas to encompass critical blood vessels. Conventional wisdom has long held that surgery to remove the tumors is rarely an option, and life expectancies are usually measured in months.

Alabama Woman Completes Year in Verapamil-Diabetes Clinical Trial, More Participants Needed

UAB physician Fernando Ovalle says one of the more difficult aspects of finding enrollees for the trial is that many physicians immediately think adults who show diabetic symptoms are likely type 2 diabetics when — if their body mass index is below 30 — it may actually be type 1 diabetes.

As More States Legalize Marijuana, Adolescents’ Problems with Pot Decline

A survey of more than 216,000 adolescents from all 50 states indicates the number of teens with marijuana-related problems is declining. Similarly, the rates of marijuana use by young people are falling despite the fact more U.S. states are legalizing or decriminalizing marijuana use and the number of adults using the drug has increased.

Study Documents African Monkeys Eating Bats; First to Report Implications for Animal-Human Disease Transmission

Primates and bats may interact directly, but their behavioral and predator-prey interactions are poorly documented, and detailed reports of their interactions have been rare, until now. The first study to document monkeys consuming bats with photos and video suggests an alternative pathway for bat-to-monkey disease transmission that has implications for zoonotic disease transmission to humans.
