Soy consumption could help prevent prostate cancer and male pattern baldness
A team of scientists has discovered that a little-known molecule created in the intestine when soy is digested is a natural and powerful blocker of a potent male hormone involved in prostate cancer and male pattern baldness. In fact, the molecule, equol, completely stops in its tracks the male hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which normally stimulates prostate growth and causes male pattern baldness.

Bizarre attractive force found in mayonnaise
Scientists at Rice University have discovered that a little-understood tensile force, which was previously thought to be an oddity found only in the types of plastics used to make bulletproof vests, occurs in everyday emulsions like mayonnaise and salad dressing. "Negative first normal stress difference" is an attractive force created in fluids under certain conditions. The research was published last month in the academic journal Physical Review Letters.
