Ex nihilo: Dynamical Casimir effect in metamaterial converts vacuum fluctuations into real photons
Exercise boosts health by influencing stem cells to become bone, not fat, researchers find
McMaster researchers have found one more reason to exercise: working out triggers influential stem cells to become bone instead of fat, improving overall health by boosting the body's capacity to make blood.
