UNESCO lists Korean mountain Buddhist temples as World Heritage sites

  UNESCO lists Korean mountain Buddhist temples as World Heritage sites Seven ancient Korean mountain temples, which typify the way Buddhism in the country has merged with indigenous beliefs and styles, were listed as UNESCO World Heritage sites on Saturday. The seven mountain temples -- Seonamsa, Daeheungsa, Beopjusa, Magoksa, Tongdosa, Bongjeongsa, Buseoksa -- were all established during the Three Kingdoms period that lasted until the 7th century AD.UNESCO made the announcement at a meeting in the Bahraini capital Manama."These mountain monasteries are sacred places, which have survived as living centres of faith and daily religious practice to the present," UNESCO said in a press statement.

Researchers have made an important breakthrough in work to develop a vaccine to protect against HIV.

Most attempts have failed because the virus is able to rapidly mutate, making most vaccines ineffective.

However, scientists in the US have created a vaccine that has managed to get to the first step, with almost 400 healthy uninfected adults mounting an immune response to the vaccine.

The trial recruited 393 HIV-uninfected adults aged 18 to 50 from clinics in east Africa, South Africa, Thailand and the US.

The Mosaic HIV vaccine is one of only five experimental vaccines to make it this far since the HIV/AIDS epidemic began.

Air pollution plays significant role in diabetes: study

  Air pollution plays significant role in diabetes: study Air pollution caused one in seven new cases of diabetes in 2016, according to a US study, which found even low levels raised the chances of developing the chronic disease. Diabetes has primarily been associated with lifestyle factors like diet and a sedentary lifestyle, but research by the Washington University School of Medicine in St Louis said pollution also plays a major role.

The next step is to give the vaccine to 2600 in risk women in southern Africa. Researchers have made an important breakthrough in the development of a vaccine to protect against HIV . Scientists in the United States, however, have created a vaccine that has managed to reach the first stage, with

But it remains to be seen whether the vaccine will make it past the next step when it will be given to 2600 at risk women in Southern Africa.

The vaccine produced robust immune responses to HIV in healthy adults. The next step is the vaccination of 2,600 vulnerable women in southern Africa. Researchers have made a major breakthrough in the development of a vaccine against HIV .

According to research recently published in the Lancet, researchers have made an important breakthrough towards developing a vaccine to protect against HIV .

The research published in the journal The Lancet shows that the experimental vaccine generated robust immune responses.

“These results represent an important milestone," says Professor Dan Barouch, Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, who led the study.

“These results should be interpreted cautiously.

"The challenges in the development of an HIV vaccine are unprecedented, and the ability to induce HIV-specific immune responses does not necessarily indicate that a vaccine will protect humans from HIV infection."

Almost 37 million people worldwide are living with HIV/AIDS, with an estimated 1.8 million new cases every year.

In the 35 years of the HIV epidemic, only four HIV vaccine concepts have been tested in humans, and only one has provided evidence of protection.

Change of heart? Why Australians could be wasting money on fish oil pills .
Australians may be wasting money on fish oil supplements - at least when it comes to heart disease. A major Cochrane review, released on Wednesday, has found strong evidence they do nothing to reduce our risk of cardiovascular events, coronary heart deaths, coronary heart disease events, stroke or heart irregularities.Other large studies have reported similar findings but the Cochrane review is important because scientists consider its evidence – compiled from 79 randomised trials involving 112,059 people and carefully checked to be free of bias – to be the gold standard.
