Adults with diabetics may have 9 years off their lifespan, researchers found.
Is it goodbye insulin injections? A new inhalable insulin shows promise as a new way to control blood sugar without needles.
Among people who had prediabetes, those who ate more polyunsaturated fat and less saturated fat were found to have higher levels of insulin sensitivity--which is a lower risk of developing full-blown diabetes.

In a recent study, researchers found that for some young adults with risk factors, particularly, hypertension, drinking too much coffee can increase their risk of prediabetes.

The BioScience Talks podcast features discussions of topical issues related to the biological sciences. By altering the heritability of certain traits, gene drive technologies have the potential to spread desired genes through wild populations. In practice, this could lead to mosquito populations that, for example, bear traits making them resistant to the spread of malaria. Despite the huge potential for improving human well-being, concern exists that gene drives could fail in the wild or, perhaps more concerning, spread beyond their intended target populations.
