One of the most positive fruits of the great latter-day restoration is the ongoing reconciliation of the so-called conflict between science and religion. As a powerful example of that reconciliation, recent discoveries in astronomy are resulting in revolutionary new theories of how habitable worlds and their solar systems are created.
A life-saving NeoLife Ventilator that helps newborns who struggle to breathe is headed for FDA approval, thanks to a team of BYU students and recent graduates who spent more than a year working with doctors and engineers and conducting research in Cambodia and Uganda.
Research led by BYU psychology professor Scott Steffensen is showing that acupuncture can have a very real impact at the neurological level, better helping those recovering from addiction.
