Can a mother’s stress impact children’s disease development? University of Cincinnati environmental health researcher says there is a connection between trauma and DNA mutation — ScienceDaily

Stress on an expectant mother could affect her baby’s chance of developing disease — perhaps even over the course of the child’s life, UC researchers have found. Psychosocial factors creating stress — such as lack of social support, loneliness, marriage status or bereavement — may be mutating their child’s mitochondrial DNA and could be a […]

Radboud university medical center research: Most lungs recover well after COVID-19

Lung tissue of patients who suffered severely from COVID-19 shows good recovery in most cases. This was revealed by a study carried out by the Radboud university medical center that has now been published in Clinical Infectious Diseases. A striking conclusion is that the group who was referred by a GP did not recover as […]
