Scientists believe aliens living on planets around nearby stars could detect life on Earth through leaked radio signals.

US experts say the high-frequency signals from TV, radar, and even low-frequency waves from our phones, could be picked up by extraterrestrials as far as six light-years away.

An expert believes two currently available anti-ageing supplements could potentially keep people healthy into old age.

Professor Cynthia Kenyon believes rapamycin and metformin could slow down the biological ageing process and therefore age-related diseases, like cancer, dementia and frailty, and is calling for mass trials to be carried out.

Researchers from the University of Cambridge are warning dogs are at risk of lead poisoning, after finding ‘very high’ concentrations of the toxic metal inside raw pheasant pet food.

The lead is believed to be from shotgun pellets, used legally to kill terrestrial game birds like pheasants, in the UK.

Scientists are on the hunt for “super memorisers” to take part in a new study about people with exceptional memories.

University of Cambridge teams are hoping to uncover why some people are much better at remembering than others, using brain scans.

And the rest

The Ukraine farmer blowing up mines with a remote-controlled armoured tractor, scientists ‘a step closer’ to effective treatment for aggressive brain tumour, study suggests adding too much water to whiskies can make them taste the same, and weather conditions ‘may influence song’s success in UK music charts’.
