In chemistry, an electrolyte is any substance containing free ions that make the substance electrically conductive. The most typical electrolyte is an ionic solution, but molten electrolytes and solid electrolytes are also possible.
Scientists reveal that the increased salt content of whey makes it one of the most polluting byproducts in the food processing industry.
Recently scientists pinpointed 182 genes likely responsible for kidney function—most of which can be targeted with existing drugs.
Our reliance on fossil fuels as a primary energy source has pushed air pollution to an all-time high, resulting in several environmental and health concerns. Among the major pollutants, nitrogen oxide (NOx) accumulation can cause severe respiratory diseases and imbalance in the Earth's nitrogen cycle. Reducing NOx accumulation is, therefore, an issue of utmost importance.
A high concentration of salt or sugar in the environment will dehydrate microorganisms and stop them from growing.
An interventional therapy aimed at improving survival chances and reducing the need for critical care treatment due to COVID-19 is being investigated by physicians at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston.
The intestinal epithelium is the inner layer of the intestinal wall, which separates host tissue from the intestinal microbiota.
A research team has established an optimized three-dimensional (3D) tissue-staining and observation technique based on existing tissue clearing technology.
Antioxidants are one of the most widely investigated compounds due to their role in protecting living systems from the negative effects of free radicals.
