U.S. Alzheimer's deaths jump 54 percent
25 May 2017 - U.S. deaths from Alzheimer's disease rose by more than 50 percent from 1999 to 2014, and rates are expected to continue to rise, reflecting the nation's aging population and increasing life expectancy, American researchers said on Thursday [25 May]. There is no cure for Alzheimer's, a fatal brain disease that slowly robs its victims of the ability to think and care for themselves. Meanwhile, the number of people with Alzheimer's who died at home increased to 24.9 percent in 2014, from 13.9 percent in 1999, researchers reported in the CDC's weekly report on death and disease. The sharp increase in Alzheimer's deaths coupled with the rising number of people with Alzheimer's dying at home have likely added to the burden on family members and others struggling to care for their stricken family members, they said.

Arctic stronghold of world's seeds flooded after permafrost melts
19 May 2017 - It was designed as an impregnable deep-freeze to protect the world's most precious seeds from any global disaster and ensure humanity's food supply forever. But the Global Seed Vault, buried in a mountain deep inside the Arctic circle, has been breached after global warming produced extraordinary temperatures over the winter, sending meltwater gushing into the entrance tunnel. No seeds were lost but the ability of the rock vault to provide failsafe protection against all disasters is now threatened by climate change. (more)

Bad news, everyone: Your lack of sleep is making you hideous
18 May 2017 - Sleeping enough is essential for good physical and mental health, it makes us better at making decisions, and it'll mean we won't yawn every two minutes on an endless loop. So here it is: beauty sleep is a real thing, and your exhaustion is wrecking your appearance. A new study from researchers at Stockholm University suggests that even a few nights of bad sleep is enough to make a person look 'significantly' less attractive, and can even make people like you less.

Time is running out for Madagascar - evolution's last, and greatest, laboratory
13 May 2017 - It is a unique evolutionary hotspot home to thousands of plants found nowhere else on Earth. However, Madagascar's special trees, palms, and orchids -- which provide habitats and food for dozens of species of rare lemur and other animals -- are now facing catastrophic destruction caused by land clearances, climate change, and spreading agriculture, scientists will warn this week.
