Did you know that only one in ten of the cells in your body is actually human? That’s right. A whopping 90 percent of your cells are bacterial, viral, or parasitic in nature.

The NIH’s Human Microbiome Project is ambitiously aiming to characterize the microbial communities living in us. And while the vast majority of these germs are symbionts, once in a while, we pick up a straggling critter that’s not just along for the ride–it’s there to leach our nutrients at all costs.

These parasites fall in five distinct categories, the first of which is the most numerically abundant animal on Earth: nematodes.

“Directed evolution” may save our polluted planet. At least, chemical engineer Dr. Frances Arnold sees it that way.

The recent National Medal of Technology and Innovation recipient is credited with pioneering the technique of directed evolution, a method used to engineer proteins or evolve certain organisms, leading to the revolutionary production of renewable fuels and chemicals, among other results.

Researchers may have discovered a way to protect against the transmission of HIV–a worldwide epidemic that now infects about 35 million people.

Nobel Laureate Dr. David Baltimore and colleagues at his Caltech lab are injecting mice with a powerful prophylaxis called VIP. And guess what? It works. Caltech postdoctoral fellow Alex Balazs is heading up this groundbreaking research. So is it now time to test this approach in humans?

Is The Universe A Computer Simulation? Physicist Martin Savage Explains (VIDEO)

Have you ever wondered whether all this–you, your life, the universe–is just a sophisticated computer simulation?

Martin Savage, a physicist at the University of Washington, thinks we can’t discount the idea. In fact, he and two colleagues (Silas Beane and Zohreh Davoudi) published a paper in November 2012 exploring the possibility. I spoke to him about why he thinks we may be the byproduct of some sophisticated computer code.

As we spoke, I noticed he used the word they a lot, when referencing the proposed simulators. I couldn’t help but ask, “who is they?” His answer will blow your mind.

Ambien Side Effects: What Does Science Say About The Sleep Medication? (VIDEO)

Hi everyone. Cara Santa Maria here. You’ve heard the stories, right? Someone takes Ambien so they can sleep, and next thing they know, they’re waking up halfway across town with no memory of how they got there. From sleepwalking to sleep driving–and even sleep sex–Ambien has been implicated in a number of strange sleep behaviors. A friend of a friend of mine took Ambien, went to bed, and about a week later, she got all these packages in the mail. Apparently, while she was sleeping, she’d ordered a bunch of “hooker clothes” (her words)! So what is it about Ambien that can induce such bizarre behavior, and why do people continue to take it?

The size of our universe is nearly incomprehensible. It’s so vast, the thought of anything greater is a little hard to swallow. But could there be a parallel universe out there? Could our universe be part of a grander whole, a multiverse?
