When the arteries delivering oxygen to our vital organs are obstructed by atherosclerosis or clots, the result is almost always a stroke, heart attack or damage to a peripheral tissue such as the legs (peripheral artery disease). But the severity of tissue injury or destruction from a choked-off blood supply varies from person to person, and may depend in large part on whose circulatory system has the best back-up plan to provide alternate routes of circulation. This "back-up system" "“...

A new study, published Thursday in Analytical Chemistry, states that the eye make-up worn by Cleopatra and other ancient Egyptians apparently had a dual purpose, shielding the wearer from the "evil eye" and protecting them from eye disease. According to French scientists, some 4,000 years ago ancient Egyptians used the make-up - made from lead and lead salts - to darken the eyes. The mixture sometimes took up to a month to create, Philippe Walter told AFP. Walter co-headed the research team...
