Parasitic infection thrives when it is able to elicit a strong immune response.
According to a Cell Reports study, mice with abnormal eating schedules are more likely to develop skin cancer cells. Researchers report abnormal eating times disrupt the skin's circadian cycle and weakens the potency of an enzyme that protects against UV rays.
Changing the circadian clock in the liver of mice alters the way the body responds to diet and also changes the gut microbiota, a new study reports.
Researchers have discovered a group of neurons in the retina that affect circadian rhythm by sending signals to the SCN.
