The ketogenic diet, also known as the keto diet, is a nutritional plan that requires a person to consume increased amounts of fat while restricting carbohydrate intake. People looking to get into this diet would have to give up many things that they enjoy – including breads, bagels, and various snacks to keep their carbohydrate intake to a minimum. While new “keto-friendly” ingredients and snacks have been introduced into the market, experts claim that these “cheat” foods are not as healthy as p...

The East Siberian Arctic Shelf (“ESAS”) is the epicenter of a methane-rich zone that could turn the world upside down. Still, the ESAS is not on the radar of mainstream science, and not included in calculations by the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), and generally not well understood. It is one of the biggest mysteries of the world’s climate puzzle, and it is highly controversial, which creates an enhanced level of uncertainty and casts shadows of doubt. The ESAS is the most e...

The FDA’s oversight powers on cosmetics are so weak, even the industry is complaining. The beauty industry has come a long way since the days of arsenic scrubs and lead-based face creams. But maybe it hasn’t come far enough. Earlier this year, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration confirmedthat asbestos — a known carcinogen that’s unsafe at any level — had been found in eye shadow, foundation, and other make-up products marketed to pre-teen girls. Even worse, because the FDA had no power to f...

24. jún je sviatkom Jána Krstiteľa a jeho sila je spojená so začiatkom astronomického leta, s letným slnovratom, ktorý pripadá na 21. jún. Dodnes sa moc tejto noci oslavuje svätojánskymi ohňami, rôznymi magickými praktikami a zvykmi. V období letného slnovratu má slnko najväčšiu silu a dni sú najdlhšie z celého roku. Je to najsilnejší a najkrajší sviatok energetického rytmu Matky Zeme. V dobách, kedy ľudia ešte žili v tesnom spojení s prírodou, žili podľa jej rytmov a zákonitostí, ctili si príro...

With age, forests in eastern U.S. and Canada become less vulnerable to climate change, study finds. Older is better – for forests facing climate change. That’s the upshot of new University of Vermont research that finds older forests in eastern North America are less vulnerable to climate change than younger forests, particularly for carbon storage, timber production, and biodiversity. The study, to be published in Global Change Biology’s June 12 edition, analyzed how climate change is ...

Every day we are ingesting tiny, often microscopic pieces of plastic -- "microplastics" -- with our food, beverages and with the very air we breathe. Americans eat, drink and breathe between 74,000 and 121,000 microplastic particles each year depending on their age and sex, new research suggests. Those who exclusively drink bottled water rather than tap water can add up to 90,000 plastic particles to their estimated annual total, according to the studypublished Wednesday in the journ...

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently banned 12 products containing neonicotinoid, a pesticide that functions similarly to nicotine. Neonicotinoids have been linked to impaired memory, movement, and death in bees, which are critical to the world's crop production. Seven of the recently banned pesticides are used to protect crops like soybeans, cotton, and corn from diseases and pests. The EPA ban represents a win for environmentalists, but it leaves 47 neonicotinoid-base...

Huby tvoria akýsi lesný internet. A takáto kabeláž má svoju cenu. Huby sú odkázané na živiny iných druhov, lebo v mnohom sa podobajú skôr na zvieratá. Bez prívodu potravy by zahynuli. Preto vyžadujú platbu vo forme cukru a iných glycidov, ktoré im dodáva partnerský strom. A huby vo svojich nárokoch nie sú práve skromné. Za svoje služby žiadajú až tretinu celkovej produkcie hostiteľského stromu! Preto je logické, že pri takýchto podmienkach závislosti sa huby nespoliehajú na náhodu. Svojimi jemný...

Hundreds of sites in rivers around the world from the Thames to the Tigris are awash with dangerously high levels of antibiotics, the largest global study on the subject has found. Antibiotic pollution is one of the key routes by which bacteria are able develop resistance to the life-saving medicines, rendering them ineffective for human use. “A lot of the resistance genes we see in human pathogens originated from environmental bacteria,” said Prof William Gaze, a microbial ecologist at the U...

Preteky v raji na zemi s názvom stredná Európa by v súčasnosti určite vyhral buk. Vie dokonale zhodnotiť nadbytok a vytláča všetkých konkurentov, lebo im jednoducho prerastie cez hlavu a svojimi výhonkami zacloní korunu porazeného stromu. Kto sa chce presadiť voči takejto silnej konkurencii, musí si niečo vymyslieť. Odchýlky od stromového raja na zemi prinášajú ťažkosti. Kto chce nájsť ekologickú niku po boku buka, musí byť v niektorej oblasti askétom. Ekologickú niku? Väčšina životných priestor...
