Staying Sharp is a new ‘one-stop-shop’ on the Age UK website, developed in partnership with the Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Cognitive Epidemiology (CCACE) at the University of Edinburgh, where you can find out what you need to know about thinking skills in later life.
Dr David Hay, Dr Baltasar Lucendo-Villarin, Jose Meseguer-Ripolles and Dr Kate Cameron (all MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine, University of Edinburgh), in collaboration with the Universities of Aberdeen and Glasgow, have developed a stem cell technique to assess the effects of maternal cigarette smoking on the developing foetus. Their findings reveal that the potent cocktail of chemicals in cigarettes is particularly harmful to developing liver cells and affects male and female foetuses differently.
