This competition drives them to pick up new mutations that can help them divide faster, survive immune attack, resist drugs, and expand to new areas of […]
New evidence shows that ketogenic diets protect the brain as mice age. And one day you might be able to buy a pill that does the same thing, without having to kiss carbs goodbye. https://media.wired.com/photos/59a9c17b6b0b3078c86c98eb/master/pass/mouse-FA.jpg Feed: All Latest
