Chinese, American Scientists Identify Seven Measures to Predict Heart Disease Risk[Jun 03, 2019]

Chinese and American researchers have identified seven key measures of heart health that can help predict future risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). The study, published in the latest journal JAMA Network Open, reported those indicators including four behaviors that people could have control over and three biometrics that should be kept at healthy levels.

Study Reveals Mechanism Behind Ginger's Warming Effect on Body[Jun 03, 2019]

Chinese researchers have found the protein regulating networks behind the effect that ginger is known to have a warming effect on the body in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Researchers from China's Lanzhou University searched the two main active ingredients in ginger, namely 6-gingerol and 6-shaogaol in medical literature and a protein database, and identified proteins targeted or regulated by these two compounds.


U.S., Chinese Researchers Transform Graphene into Semiconductor[May 31, 2019]

Researchers from the Purdue University, the University of Michigan and the Huazhong University of Science and Technology used a laser technique to transform graphene, a super thin material that is at least 100 times stronger than steel, into a semiconductor that may replace silicon on a computer chip in the future.
