Type 2 diabetes affects more than one million people and many of them are unaware they have the condition as they have not been diagnosed. A certain smell in your urine could mean you are at risk. Have you noticed this smell?
The ancient town of Pingyao has decided to ban all businesses selling foods that have a strong smell, as an effort to improve its environment. The government of Pingyao County in north China's Shanxi Province has ordered that all eateries selling food such as stinky tofu and barbecue should close down between May 5 and 10. Businesses that disobey the order will be shut down and fined, Xinhua wrote.
Most of us think of that sweet smell after a storm as the aftereffect of rain that has rinsed the air of pollutants and dust. But it turns out that rain also triggers the release of a mist of particles from wet soils into the air, a finding with consequences of its own for how scientists model our planet's climate and future.
