A new paper published by researchers from the University of Turku in Finland suggests that even though observed changes in the climate are real, the effects of human activity on these changes are insignificant.
Scientists design protein blockers to fight obesity and heart disease
Almost four in 10 adult Americans are obese, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. What's more alarming is that in the past two decades alone, in states such as Texas, the share of obesity among residents has tripled. If left unchecked, obesity can even lead to more serious problems including high blood pressure and deadly strokes.
