Recent research conducted by a team of neurologists and biotechnologists from Belgium has shown promising results in using fecal microbiota transplants (FMTs) to improve symptoms in early stage Parkinson’s disease patients. The study involved administering healthy donor stool transplants to 46 patients, with a significant improvement in motoric symptoms observed in those who received the
In the vast expanse of space, a rare and awe-inspiring event is set to unfold sometime between now and September – a massive explosion in a binary star system located 3,000 light years from Earth. This extraordinary spectacle will occur in the constellation Corona Borealis, often referred to as the “northern crown”, and will provide
