Even short-lived insects become elderly

Even short-lived insects become elderly

Science
Jan. 14 (UPI) -- Even insects grow old before they die. Among mammals, birds, reptiles and even fish, the signs of aging are easily observed. The aging process is less visible among insects. But new research confirms even short-lived species, like field crickets, experience physical decline before they die. Scientists have previously observed aging among insects in the lab, but some researchers surmised their protection from the dangers of life in the wild allowed signs of senescence to surface. For the latest study -- published this week in the journal Evolution -- scientists observed field crickets in their natural environs, in the fields. Using more than 130 video cameras, researchers recorded and analyzed the movements and behaviors of several generations of field crickets over the co...
Skipping breakfast even once a week might increase risk of diabetes

Skipping breakfast even once a week might increase risk of diabetes

Health
Many people consider breakfast to be the most important meal of the day, and perhaps that's for good reason. Skipping it might increase your type 2 diabetes risk, according to a new review of several studies. After looking at a total of six studies involving over 96,000 people — 5,000 of whom had already been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes — German researchers found that skipping breakfast for just one day of the week was associated with a 6 percent higher risk of developing diabetes. However, the risk went up with each additional day, peaking at a 55 percent higher risk of diabetes after skipping breakfast for four to five days each week. Breakfast is meant to “break the fast” after a night of sleep, registered dietitian Dalina Soto told ABC News. When you eat b...

Atlantic salmon use magnetic fields to navigate, even when landlocked

Atlantic salmon use magnetic fields to navigate, even when landlocked

Science
Oct. 8 (UPI) -- Even when landlocked for several generations, Atlantic salmon can sense magnetic fields and use them to navigate, according to new research. Previous studies have documented Pacific salmon's ability to sense magnetic fields. To test whether Atlantic salmon also use Earth's magnetic field to navigate, scientists designed a series of fish pins, each with differently oriented magnetic fields. Researchers replicated the Earth's magnetic field using copper-coated wooden coils. The experimental fish pins were installed in Oregon's Hosmer Lake, where Atlantic salmon, originally transplanted from Maine, have been living living for 60 years. Scientists observed the behavior of 1,150 juvenile Atlantic salmon inside the pins. "We wanted to see how Atlantic salmon would respond if we...
