Obesity has become a global pandemic in recent decades, and presently affects more than 90 million Americans… Read More »

Enhanced NMR reveals chemical structures in a fraction of the time

MIT researchers have developed a way to dramatically enhance the sensitivity of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR), a technique used to study the structure and composition of many kinds of molecules, including proteins linked to Alzheimer’s and other diseases. Using this new method, scientists should be able to analyze in mere minutes structures that would… Read More »

Harvard research reveals Coke’s fingerprints on health policy in China

A complex network of research funding, institutional ties, and personal influence allowed Coca-Cola, through connections with a nonprofit group, to exert substantial influence over obesity science and policy solutions in China, nudging government policy into alignment with the company’s corporate interests, a Harvard study has found. Professor Susan Greenhalgh’s study reveals not just efforts by… Read More »
