    • Scientists create bee vaccine to fight off ‘insect apocalypse’ Scientists-create-bee-vaccine-to-fight-off -insect-apocalypse1.

        Scientists in Finland have developed what they believe is the world’s first vaccine to protect bees against disease, raising hopes for tackling the drastic decline in insect numbers which could cause a global food crisis.

UN-led research in...

    • Two-year-old needs some of the rarest blood in the world to survive Two-year-old-needs-some-of-the-rarest-blood-in-the-world-to-survive

        Two-year-old Zainab Mughal has some of the rarest blood in the world. She’s been battling cancer, and to survive, she’s likely to need blood transfusions from seven to 10 donors who haven’t all been found. That’s because they’re as rare as she is. Only people of Pakistani, Indian or Iranian descent who have the same type of blood as Zainab, whose family hails from Pakistan, are likely to match with her. Less than 4% of people in those populations may match, according to OneBlood, a South Florida nonprofit organization that’s aiding in a global search to identify and recruit...

One-and-half-year-old Sanna was the first one as...
