High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is a type of exercise that involves alternating short bursts of intense activity with brief periods of rest or low-intensity exercise. HIIT has been shown to be highly effective at improving cardiometabolic health, even in people with PCOS.
Researchers examined data from over 35,000 individuals with European and African ancestry, revealing 40 candidate genes associated with coronary artery calcification. Notably, eight of these genes were previously unconnected to calcification, and five were novel for coronary artery disease. Some of these genes also play roles in cholesterol metabolism and inflammation, suggesting potential therapeutic targets […]

Engineers can efficiently make fuel from carbon dioxide through processes like carbon capture and utilization (CCU) or direct air capture (DAC). These methods involve capturing CO2 emissions from industrial processes or directly from the atmosphere. The captured CO2 is then converted into fuels using chemical or biological processes, such as electrochemical reduction or microbial fermentation. […]
