LOOK­ING for some top sell­ing ymas items for your phar­ma­cy͍

Look no fur­ther than an in­no­va­tion from KFC in Ja­pan, which has re­leased new limited edi­tion bath bombs which al­low fast food lovers to lit­er­ally im­merse them­selves in the essence of fried chicken.

Com­plete with KFC’s 11 se­cret herbs and spices, the spe­cial toi­letry items (pic­tured be­low) are un­for­tu­nately not ac­tu­ally avail­able in stores, but will be given to the first 100 fol­low­ers of the KFC Ja­pan Twit­ter ac­count who retweet a pro­mo­tional post.

RE­SEARCHERS in the UK have made an in­trigu­ing break­through in wound heal­ing, with burns sus­tained at night time tak­ing sig­nif­i­cantly longer to get bet­ter than ones hap­pen­ing in the day.

The team from the MRC Lab­o­ra­tory of Molec­u­lar Bi­ol­ogy stud­ied 118 burns pa­tients, find­ing night-time burns took on av­er­age 11 days longer to heal.

The sci­en­tists be­lieve the dif­fer­ence is due to a 24-hour cy­cle in spe­cial skin cells called fi­brob­lasts, which act to close wounds when they oc­cur.

On a mi­cro­scopic level the “first re­spon­der” fi­brob­lasts were found to be more ac­tive dur­ing the day, point­ing to ther­a­pies which could boost heal­ing by tar­get­ing cir­ca­dian rhythms.
