Copper hospital beds may kill bacteria, suggests new study, which found that copper beds in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) harbored an average of 95% fewer bacteria than conventional hospital beds with plastic surfaces, most of which had concentrations of bacteria that exceed levels considered safe. via /r/science

Scientists replaced 40 percent of cement with rice husk cinder, limestone crushing waste, and silica sand, giving concrete a rubber-like quality, six to nine times more crack-resistant than regular concrete. It self-seals, replaces cement with plentiful waste products, and should be cheaper to use. via /r/science

New drug forces flu virus into ‘error catastrophe,’ overwhelming it with mutations. It was effective against multiple influenza strains in human airway epithelial cultures, and the viruses did not develop resistance. When ferrets got it 12 hours after infection, they did not develop disease at all. via /r/science

Vaginal-fluid transplants treat incurable condition in pilot study, fully restoring healthy microbiomes in 4 of 5 women with bacterial vaginosis (BV), which could “revolutionize the way we view and treat conditions affecting the female reproductive tract.” Published this week in Nature Medicine. via /r/science

Carrying ten kilograms of excess body fat increases the risk of depression by seventeen per cent – and the more fat, the greater the probability of developing depression. This is the main conclusion of a new study carried out by researchers from Aarhus University, Denmark. via /r/science

A theory that Parkinson’s disease can arise in the intestinal system and from there migrate to the brain has now gained support from new research, after seeing the disease migrate from the gut to the brain and heart of laboratory rats via the peripheral nerves. via /r/science

Having kids makes you happier, but only when they move out, according to a new study, which suggests that parents are happier than non-parents later in life, when their children move out and become sources of social enjoyment rather than stress (n=55,000). via /r/science
