The antimatter enigma: What is it and why didn't it destroy the universe?
It sounds like sci-fi: normal matter has an "evil twin" that annihilates as soon as the two come into contact.

And why hasn't it already destroyed the universe?

Missing link between severe COVID-19 and Alzheimer's disease discovered
Early in the pandemic researchers saw disproportionately high rates of dementia patients suffering from severe COVID-19. A common hypothesis was that memory impairments associated with neurodegeneration affect a person's ability to consistently follow infection control measures such as social distancing and mask wearing. But a new study led by scientists from University College London is proposing a key gene variant, known to heighten one's risk for Alzheimer's, stimulates the body's inflammatory responses and can lead to greater susceptibility to severe COVID-19.
