Can you tell AI-generated people from real ones?
Can you tell AI-generated people from real ones?
Research shows survey participants duped by AI-generated images nearly 40 per cent of the time If you recently had trouble figuring out if an image of a person is real or generated through artificial intelligence (AI), you're not alone. A new study from University of Waterloo researchers found that people had more difficulty than was expected distinguishing who is a real person and who is artificially generated.

Discovery tests theory on cooling of white dwarf stars
Discovery tests theory on cooling of white dwarf stars
Open any astronomy textbook to the section on white dwarf stars and you'll likely learn that they are "dead stars" that continuously cool down over time. New research published in Nature is challenging this theory, with the University of Victoria (UVic) and its partners using data from the European Space Agency's Gaia satellite to reveal why a population of white dwarf stars stopped cooling for more than eight billion years.

Living near leafy trees doesn’t always protect kids from asthma
A new study shows that, in urban environments, trees can both increase and decrease the risk of children developing asthma. Trees play a big role in how children in cities develop asthma. But it's not as simple as "more trees equals less asthma." It depends on the season: trees decrease the risk of developing asthma during the leafy season but increase the risk during the pollen season.

’problematic’ use of porn
Led by UdeM assistant professor Beáta Bothe, researchers explore how online pornography affects people differently around the world - not just men, but also women and non-binary people. A major international study led by a Canadian psychologist sheds light on a hidden phenomenon: how problematic use of pornography is affecting people in different parts of the world, across various genders and sexual orientations.

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.

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 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
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.

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.
