After examining DNA from 21 primate species - from squirrel monkeys to humans - scientists have exposed an evolutionary war against infectious bacteria over iron that circulates in the host's bloodstream.
As forests disappear and ice melts, concerns over climate change continue to rise but scientists have now discovered a new source of oceanic "bio-available" iron that could help buffer the effects of global warming.
The rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide that comes with climate change poses serious threat. According to a new study it has been revealed that the rising CO2 can cut the nutritional quality of some of the world`s most important food crops.
Researchers have explained that the 68-million-year-old soft tissue which was discovered from the bones of a Tyrannosaurus rex did not decay and survived millennia because of the iron content in the dinosaur`s body.
Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday announced a nation-wide campaign to collect small pieces of iron from farmers for using it to build the proposed `Statue of Unity` in the memory of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.
Researchers have figured out why iron plays a key role in metabolism and infections, pitting bugs and animals against one another, resolving a 40-year-old debate and opening way to more potent antibiotics.
Adolescence is the time when one needs to be particular about food consumption, especially intake of vitamins and minerals for a healthy life. But several studies have shown that adolescents` intake of important nutrients, as well as their performance in standard physical fitness tests, have fallen in recent years.
