14 Quick Science Updates We Just Learned

The world is filled to the brim with interesting facts, trivia, intel, and general knowledge and inspiration. When we consider the areas of science and history alone, well, it's enough to fill several lifetimes of study. Since most of us are unfortunately constrained to this one life, well, we best get cracking.

Science is constantly evolving and changing. Here are a few quick updates on some recent discoveries in the scientific community. First, scientists have developed a new vaccine that may help prevent cancer from spreading. Secondly, there's a new organ in the human body that was just discovered called the interstitium. It's basically a network of fluid-filled spaces that runs throughout our tissue. Scientists are still trying to figure out what exactly this new organ does, but they believe it could be involved in things like absorption and transport of nutrients or helping remove waste products from cells. Pretty fascinating stuff! Additionally, researchers have discovered a potential new treatment for Alzheimer's disease. Lastly, scientists have found a way to regenerate teeth using stem cells. Stay tuned for future updates as science continues to evolve!
