Eli Lilly’s tau drug marks shift in Alzheimer’s research

Eli Lilly has spent nearly thirty years working on drugs for Alzheimer’s disease, but didn’t come up with much until recently. In 2016, the company started human tests with the help of an entirely fresh approach.

Researchers create ER-treated chocolate having 20% less fat

A research team from Temple University has found a novel way to lessen the percentage of fat in milk chocolate. The researchers have unveiled that electric currents can lessen the fat content of milk chocolate by around 20%.

In 2012, the researchers were studying as to how electricity can improve the viscosity of chocolate without adding extra cocoa butter. During the experiment process, the researchers wondered if electricity could lessen fat in chocolate and keep it viscous.
