Abbasi et al. show that interfollicular (but not hair follicle-associated) mesenchymal
progenitors generate the bulk of reparative fibroblasts in skin wounds. Wound microenvironments
remodel the regulatory landscape of recruited fibroblasts,...

The mammary epithelium is indispensable for the continued survival of more than 5000 mammalian species. For some, the volume of milk ejected in a single day exceeds their entire blood volume. Here, we unveil the spatiotemporal properties of...
For the second time in less than a year, a study of common sunscreen ingredients has established that the chemicals are absorbed into the bloodstream at concentrations far greater than the Food and Drug Administration’s safety threshold.
Paul KnoepflerEven more research tells us that the current state of sunscreen chemistry is seriously problematic. From WSJ "Sunscreen Chemicals Accumulate in Body at High Levels"
