How fast you'll age is written in the bones, TAU research finds
Perhaps the aging process cant be stopped. But it can be predicted, and new research from Tel Aviv University indicates that people may live longer and lead healthier lives as a result.
Researchers have developed a new biological marker that represents the age of a bodys bones. It reveals that ...
Overweight people more likely to have bad breath, TAU study finds
Now theres another good reason to go on that diet after the holidays. Tel Aviv University researchers have published a study that finds a direct link between obesity and bad breath: the more overweight you are, the more likely your breath will smell unpleasant to those around you.
American donors put faith (and dollars) in TAU cancer research
