Middle-aged tooth loss linked to increased coronary heart disease risk
Losing two or more teeth during middle age is associated with increased cardiovascular disease risk. Having fewer natural teeth by middle age is linked to higher cardiovascular disease risk.

Mono-unsaturated fats from plants, not animals may reduce risk of death from heart disease and other causes
Diets rich in mono-unsaturated fats from plants may lower the risk of death from heart disease and other causes. The largest reductions in the risk of death were found when healthy fats from plant sources replaced saturated fats, trans fats and refined carbohydrates.

Grilling and other high-temperature cooking may raise risk of high blood pressure
Among people who routinely eat meat, chicken and fish, those who grill, broil or roast these foods at high temperatures may be more likely to develop high blood pressure.

Connection between drug, alcohol use and infant abdominal malformation
Alcohol use early in the pregnancy by the mother may be a risk factor for a condition in which an infant's intestines develop outside the abdomen, according to a study.

Live 3-D printing of osteogenic scaffolds into bone defects
Severe traumatic injuries to the cranium have been challenging to heal due to the large missing bone volume. Typically, metal or plastic implants are used. But, these implants can take a long time to be customized for fit and often take a longer than desired time to support bone fixation. This can often lead to multiple revision surgeries if the defect is not properly healed. Moreover, the tissue that adjoins the implant can improperly heal. For the effective treatment of these defects and injuries, it is necessary to reduce the time and improve the accuracy of implantable bone scaffold substitutes. Further, the microarchitecture and materials chemistry of the scaffold must enhance tissue regeneration and growth to hasten the healing process.

New artificial intelligence technique dramatically improves the quality of medical imaging
Researchers have developed a new technique based on artificial intelligence and machine learning that should enable clinicians to acquire high-quality images from limited data.

Brief cardiac arrest? Tend to the heart, but don't neglect the brain
Patients who survive a brief cardiac arrest and who appear neurologically intact should nonetheless receive a detailed neuropsychological assessment before being discharged, suggests a new study.

Parkinson's gene initiates disease outside of the brain
The most common gene mutation associated with Parkinson's alters cells circulating outside the brain, not within, offering a new understanding of what causes the disease.

New brain scanner allows patients to move freely for the first time
A new generation of brain scanner, that can be worn like a helmet allowing patients to move naturally whilst being scanned, has been developed. It is part of a five-year Wellcome funded project which has the potential to revolutionize the world of human brain imaging.

Neuroscientists develop potential tools for the study of brain function
A team of neuroscientists are inching closer to developing the tools needed to decipher the brain. Now, the team has demonstrated how these proteins can be used as tools to regulate the activity of individual neurons in the brain through changes in temperature. These tools will advance fundamental brain research and potentially lead to 'deep brain stimulation' treatments used for Alzheimer's and Parkinson's patients.
