10 Photos That Show What Astronaut Scott Kelly's First Week Back On Earth Was Like
NASA astronaut Scott Kelly's 340 days in space were quite magnificent. He got to space walk and take some incredible out-of-this-world photos.  Now that he has returned home, Kelly has been busy enjoying what many of us would find more mundane, such as eating salads and going to the dentist. Since Kelly landed back on Earth on March 2 after nearly a year in space, he has offered an insider's look at his life on land in photos posted to Instagram. Not only are his daily activities vastly different to life on the International Space Station, but he told CBS News that he also has changed as a person. ...

Forget BMI. Here's A Better Tool To Measure Your Health.
Body mass index, everyone's least favorite health indicator, took another hit this week in a study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine. The study, which followed more than 50,000 middle-aged and older Canadians, found that body fat percentage is a better predictor of life expectancy than BMI. Being on the thin side or having a low BMI didn't protect against early death. In fact, mortality rates increased as BMI decreased and body fat percentage went up. "The key is that BMI does not measure fat," lead author Dr. Raj Padwal, a professor of medicine and dentistry at the University of Alberta, told The...

What Your Tongue And Tonsils Could Tell You About Your Sleeping Habits
Your dentist might be able to tell if you're having trouble sleeping.  Yes. A new study published in the Saudi Medical Journal found that the size of a person's tonsils may indicate their risk for obstructive sleep apnea, a condition in which blocked upper airways cause breathing to stop and restart repeatedly during sleep. Tongue indentations, or teeth imprints on the tongue that suggest it's too big for the mouth, may also be a sign.  More than 18 million adults in the United States are affected by OSA. Since people with the condition are often suffering from interrupted and reduced sleep, it can lead to ...

Dental health: Saving Matthew’s smile
Looking at Matthew’s full set of teeth, it would be difficult to guess that two years ago, he was in danger of losing them all. Matthew, now 15, has a complicated medical history. It runs the gamut, including pervasive developmental disorder (part of autism spectrum disorder), acid reflux and intermittent vomiting. Additionally, Matthew has sensory issues that make him averse to the feeling of a toothbrush. All of this combined to make brushing Matthew’s teeth a daily battle for his parents Janet and Michael Carco, and sometimes the battle was impossible to win. Because of Matthew’s intermittent vomiting, at ag...

Natural Gas Blowout Doubled Methane Emissions in Los Angeles Area
More than 100,000 tons of methane entered the atmosphere following a 2015 natural gas well blowout in Southern California, enough to double methane emissions in the Los Angeles region during the time of the leak, according to a new research. The study, published in the journal Science, suggests that the leak adjacent to the community of Porter Ranch contributed enough methane to fill a football stadium—every single day for more than three months. The total volume of methane leaked makes it larger than all but one other gas leak in U.S. history, a 2004 accident that occurred at Moss Bluff, Texas. The researchers behin...
