A risky mix of two diseases
Stéphanie Forté and co-researchers in Canada and Brazil have shown how people with sickle cell disease or sickle cell trait have a higher chance of dying from COVID-19 than the general population. Patients with sickle cell disease and carriers of the sickle cell trait, often considered benign, face higher rates of death and hospitalization if they contract COVID-19, a new Canada-Brazil study suggests.

Fewer fish, worse health: the climate effect
Over the next two decades of climate change, there'll be less seafood to eat, and this could threaten the cardiovascular health of First Nations people on Canada's Pacific coast, a study finds. Over the next 25 years, reduced intake of marine food resources due to climate change will likely have a negative impact on the cardiovascular health of First Nations on Canada's Pacific coast, a new study suggests.

Women and men unequal when it comes to the stress of teleworking
Women and men unequal when it comes to the stress of teleworking
The stress factors associated with working at home affect women and men differently, and these effects vary greatly from Quebec to France . A wide-ranging study of telecommuting since the pandemic, as part of an extensive project initiated and piloted by Gaëlle Cachat-Rosset , professor in the Faculty of Administrative Sciences at Université Laval, shows that women and men in Quebec and France are affected differently by the stress factors associated with telecommuting.

A model for the evolution of intelligence
McGill study finds ability to solve food puzzles is the only predictor of innovation, brain size in wild birds When certain species of wild birds and primates discover new ways of finding food in the wild, it can serve to measure their flexibility and intelligence.

Teens benefit from ’forest bathing’ - even in cities
First-of-its-kind study quantifies the impact urban and architectural design features have on adolescent mental health Youth mental health in urban environments is significantly better when more nature is incorporated into city design. A new study from University of Waterloo researchers suggests that forest bathing, the simple method of being calm and quiet amongst the trees, observing nature around you while breathing deeply, can help youth de-stress and boost health and well-being.

Skin aging: a synergy between cigarette smoke and sunlight
Skin aging: a synergy between cigarette smoke and sunlight
Combined exposure of the skin to cigarette smoke and UV rays could accelerate premature aging . Research has already shown the consequences of cigarette smoke and sunlight separately. A team from Laval University and the Centre de recherche du CHU de Québec-Université Laval has now investigated the harmful interaction between cigarette smoke and UV rays, as humans are rarely exposed to a single environmental factor.

Researchers launch clinical trial exploring CBD for bipolar depression
Researchers launch clinical trial exploring CBD for bipolar depression
Researchers at UBC's faculty of medicine are launching a first-of-its-kind clinical trial investigating the potential of cannabidiol (CBD) as a treatment for bipolar depression. Bipolar disorder is a chronic mental health condition characterized by extreme changes in mood that cycle through periods of intense highs (mania) and lows (depression).

New study links placental oxygen levels to fetal brain development
New study links placental oxygen levels to fetal brain development
A new study shows oxygenation levels in the placenta, formed during the last three months of fetal development, are an important predictor of cortical growth (development of the outermost layer of the brain or cerebral cortex) and is likely a predictor of childhood cognition and behaviour.

Small dietary changes can cut your carbon footprint by 25%
McGill researchers find evidence that partially replacing red and processed meat with plant protein foods can increase lifespan and mitigate climate change The latest Canada's Food Guide presents a paradigm shift in nutrition advice, nixing traditional food groups, including meat and dairy, and stressing the importance of plant-based proteins.

Results for: Rural communities face greater risks of radon exposure compared to urban areas
Results for: Rural communities face greater risks of radon exposure compared to urban areas
UCalgary researchers find elevated radon gas levels in rural homes with close proximity to drilled groundwater wells. Henk de Haan built his home southwest of Okotoks, Alta. He was attracted to the wide-open spaces, mountain views, and fresh air. What he didn't count on was radon.  "When we built the home, I didn't know radon was a potential problem.

Metal 'scar' discovered on cannibal star: Study
Metal ’scar’ discovered on cannibal star: Study
Western researcher part of team that found a unique signature of a star ingesting surrounding planets and asteroids When a star like our Sun reaches the end of its life, it can expand to ingest the surrounding planets and asteroids that were born with it. Using the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope (ESO's VLT) in Chile, researchers, including Western physics and astronomy professor emeritus John Landstreet , have found a unique signature of this process for the first time, a scar imprinted on the surface of a white dwarf star.

Destruction of an Earth oceans' worth of water per month in Orion Nebula
Destruction of an Earth oceans’ worth of water per month in Orion Nebula
An international team, including Western astrophysicists Els Peeters and Jan Cami , has shed light on the destruction and re-formation of a large quantity of water in a planet-forming disk located at the heart of the Orion Nebula. This discovery was made possible by an original multidisciplinary approach combining observations from the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) and quantum physics calculations.

New technique can quickly detect fentanyl and other opioids
Testing method can analyze blood samples twice as quickly as other techniques University of Waterloo researchers have developed a new blood testing method that can detect potent opioids much faster than traditional approaches and potentially save lives. The method, the latest effort by Waterloo researchers and entrepreneurs to lead health innovation in Canada, can simultaneously analyze 96 blood samples that could contain opioids such as fentanyl in under three minutes - twice as quickly as other techniques.
