Study finds vitamin C can kill drug-resistant TB

Contact: Kim Newman sciencenews@einstein.yu.edu 718-430-3101 Albert Einstein College of Medicine May 21, 2013 — (Bronx, NY) — In a striking, unexpected discovery, researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University have determined that vitamin C kills drug-resistant tuberculosis (TB) bacteria in laboratory culture. The finding suggests that vitamin C added to existing TB…

Researchers explore quantum entanglement: superluminal

Contact: Leanne Yohemas lmyohema@ucalgary.ca 402-220-7722 University of Calgary Paper in Physical Review Letters delves into phenomenon Einstein called ‘spooky’ Albert Einstein called quantum entanglement—two particles in different locations, even on other sides of the universe, influencing each other—”spooky action at a distance.” Einstein made the comment while criticizing quantum mechanics as incomplete—the phenomenon of quantum…
