There’s more to know about Vitamin K! Study in @Nature shows it prevents cell death and might be an ancient naturally-occurring antioxidant. Research shows Vitamin K inhibits ferroptosis, which involves cellular iron, implicated in #Alzheimers. https://zcu.io/Gmrz

Human tissues are diverse when it comes to #RNA. Study in @Nature has mapped that diversity w/ technology that enabled readouts of segments of over 1,000 nucleotides. Helps to understand molecular underpinnings of variants that contribute to disease risk https://zcu.io/BC0Y

Turning down thermostat makes it harder for #cancer cells to grow, at least in mice. Study in @Nature finds chilly temps activates heat-producing brown fat that consumes sugars that tumors need to thrive. This effect was cancelled out by high sugar drinks https://www.eurekalert.org/news-releases/960696
