LUBBOCK, Texas– Severe antisocial behavior in children may be caused by differences in their brain wiring. Researchers called it conduct disorder, which can include vandalism, violence and depression.  A study at the University of Birmingham performed MRI’s on about 300 affected children, and found abnormalities in pathways through the brain. 

Exercising earlier in the day may lead to the best results. A study in Cell Metabolism found a mid-morning workout leads to more oxygen in the cells and a more rejuvenating effect on the body. 

“Ginkgo” might be the wave of the future for treating skin infections. Researchers at Emory University studied extracts from the seeds of the Ginkgo biloba tree. The samples showed antibacterial activity .. that may work against acne, psoriasis and eczema.
