Aboriginal community with strong ethno-cultural identity and connection to the land has lower suicide rates
A new study investigating mental health perceptions and practices of an aboriginal community in northern Ontario, and its significantly lower rates of mental health services utilization and suicide, suggests that a strong ethno-cultural identity and connection to the land are significant factors to positive mental health outcomes in this region. The study findings are published in the August 2017 edition of the International Journal of Mental Health and Addiction.

Molecular changes with age in normal breast tissue are linked to cancer-related changes
New research provides insight into how changes that occur with age may predispose breast tissue cells to becoming cancerous. Specifically, the study demonstrates that regions in the genome where DNA methylation changes occur with age are particularly sensitive to disruption in cancer. This new data provides insight into how certain molecular changes with age in normal breast tissue itself may contribute to breast cancer risk.

Heart cell's response to dwindling oxygen predicted
A model that predicts a single heart cell's response to dwindling supplies of oxygen has been developed by researchers. Specifically, it evaluates a cell's ability to keep producing ATP -- a cell's primary fuel source -- and stay alive, even as it is increasingly deprived of oxygen.

Using a pig model to study chronic diseases may help minimize drug failure rate
Scientists may be able to minimize the failure rate of drugs for diseases linked to high-calorie diets, such as colon cancer and type 2 diabetes, if they test treatments using a pig model, according to an international team of researchers.

Want to win at sports? Take a cue from these mighty mice
As student athletes hit training fields this summer to gain the competitive edge, a new study shows how the experiences of a tiny mouse can put them on the path to winning. Scientists examined how surges of testosterone both before and after aggressive encounters led the male California mouse to win in future matches.
