Broccoli could be an effective weapon against diabetes: Study

A promising study has suggested that broccoli can be potential weapon against type 2 diabetes as it contains an ingredient that can help control blood sugar levels.

Researchers found that sulforaphane, a chemical in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli and sprouts, has shown to drag down glucose levels in lab experiments on diabetic rats.

The research team used computer models to identify gene changes linked with the diabetes, and sifted through thousands of chemicals in order to identify suitable compounds that might reverse those changes.

Researchers now Know how Solar Wind can Sometimes Break through Earth’s Magnetic

Researchers used to wonder as to how the solar wind sometimes breaks through earth's magnetic field. Using the data from the four European Space Agency satellites in the Cluster mission, satellites that fly in formation in the earth's magnetic field, researchers now have an answer to how this happens.

The phenomenon in question was a wind of charged particles blow outwards from the sun, carrying a magnetic field with it. On certain occasions, this solar wind breaks through the earth's magnetic field.
