Over 100 new blood pressure genes may provide targets for treating hypertension
Over 100 new blood pressure genes may provide targets for treating hypertension
Scientists have found 107 new genes linked to high blood pressure, potentially enabling doctors to identify at-risk patients and target treatments. The study, led by Imperial College London and Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) , suggests that by using genetic testing, doctors could target medication to certain high blood pressure (hypertension) patients and advise on appropriate lifestyle changes to reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke.

Lost in translation: traffic noise disrupts communication between species
Lost in translation: traffic noise disrupts communication between species
Research by scientists at the University of Bristol has found that man-made noise can hinder the response of animals to the warning signals given by other species, putting them at greater risk of death from predators. Many animals are known to eavesdrop on the alarm calls of other species, effectively translating a foreign language to gather valuable information about the presence of predators.

’Field research and a focus on the young could help combat terrorism’
A new paper in Science says field research on the ground with youths engaged in violent extremism or susceptible to it is needed to improve the West's understanding of  terrorist groups like Islamic State and Al Qaeda. The paper says to be successful, such research would have to be properly funded and totally independent of governmental interference.  The paper argues that the US government's national security systems are too structured around state to state interactions which are more suited to the Cold War and not suited to modern-day threats .
