      Sweeping study shows sharply declining male fertility

      A groundbreaking meta-analysis of data collected between 1973 and 2011 has found that sperm concentration has declined by more than half among men from Western countries, with no sign of a “leveling off” in recent years. The study appears today in Human Reproduction Update. The research — the first systematic review and meta-analysis of trends in sperm count –was led by Dr. Hagai Levine, head of the Environmental Health Track at the Hebrew University-Hadassah Braun School of Public Health and Community Medicine, Jerusalem. Levine worked with Dr. Shanna H Swan, professor in the Department of Environmental Medicine and Public Health at ...

      How Glowing Soil Can Help Find Land Mines | Innovation | Smithsonian

      In a time when there is much talk of a “Mother of All Bombs” and the possibility of a conflict involving nuclear weapons, a landmine can seem an artifact of conflicts past, a weapon that has little to do with mass destruction.

      And yet, the prosaic device continues to induce its own form of terror around the world, sometimes long after wars have ended. In 2015, the number of people killed or maimed by land mines and other explosive remnants of war rose to 6,461, an increase of 75 percent, according to the 2016 Landmine Monitor. The big jump ...

      The study, published in the journal Science, has made it possible to produce tomatoes with their good old flavor, alongside other traits ...
