The ‘perfect’ diet for you to lose weight could come down to your DNA, with small variations in genetics meaning eating habits that are healthy for others could cause you to pile on the pounds.
'Perfect' diet might be dictated by your DNA
The phrase ‘solar energy’ often brings to mind large solar panels on the roofs of homes and businesses or huge arrays sprawled across sunny fields. But there is a need for low-light photovoltaics – materials that turn light energy into electricity – that can work indoors, providing power on a small, continuous scale.
Breakthrough yields higher voltage, efficiency for a thin mineral-based solar cell
