According to a new study by Georgetown University Medical Center, the rising temperature of Earth due to massive climate change will lead to the forcible relocation of wild animals towards the region with the large human population. This change can drastically increase the risk of a viral jump to humans that could lead to the rise of the next pandemic.
Minor genetic differences can affect the ability to utilize the energy of various nutrients, according to a new study by the University of Helsinki.
