The results confirmed the relationship between regular vaping and a significant decrease in cigarette Smoking. However, observation has shown that people who quit Smoking regular cigarettes by switching to electronic ones are more likely to relapse Smoking than those who quit Smoking at all
Scientists have created a camera that allows you to see the world through the eyes of shrimp

Experts managed to create a compact camera that can show the world through the eyes of shrimp and insects. The new development perceives the polarization light that the human eye is not able to perceive.

Scientists have proposed to treat breast cancer by freezing

Employees of Johns Hopkins University have created a reusable device capable of freezing and killing cancer tissue. Usually used for freezing expensive argon. The procedures in which it is applied cost tens of thousands of dollars, so the developers have replaced it with cheap carbon dioxide.

The resulting device has already been tested on rodents. As a result, after the first application, it was possible to destroy more than 80 percent of cancer cells. After a series of tests on animals indicators remained the same.

Scientists have proved that plants have no consciousness

Plants can sense sounds and respond to them. Touching them causes a reaction, and some plants really hate being touched. They can communicate with each other. They might be shocked. And they may even have the ability to remember.

In a new study, scientists have found that the method of transmitting signals between plant cells can not even be closely compared with the nervous system of animals — which is contrary to all the postulates of plant neurobiology.

Three-dimensional spin liquid was first discovered

Physicists at rice University for the first time received a three-dimensional spin fluid — that is, a material with the entanglement of spins in all spatial dimensions. It turned out to be a natural mineral pyrochlore, in which calcium and niobium atoms are replaced by cesium and zirconium.

Spin liquid — the magnetic state of matter. Despite its name, it is a solid material in which a strange property of quantum mechanics — entanglement — provides a liquid magnetic state.

Spin liquid was theoretically predicted in 1973, and only in 2012 scientists discovered the first substance with this state. The new work tells about the discovery of the first three-dimensional spin fluid.
