In this study, the peel, pulp, and seeds of Vitis labrusca L. grapes were characterized by LC-DAD and ICP OES and changes in polyphenols, macro- and microelements were monitored using simulated human digestion. The pulp and seeds were characterized by flavanols, and the peels were high in phenolic acids. After the digestion, the highest bioaccessibility was found for quercetin (85%), while anthocyanins diglucosides were more bioaccessible in the gastric phase (153% and 113% for malvidin and cyanidin, respectively). The digestion of grape peels resulted in higher bioaccessibility of most minerals, suggesting the nutritional...

Hospitals exist to take care of sick people, with the goal of making them better.  Hospitals employ and work with health care professionals, again who are sworn to put taking care of patients ahead of all other concerns.However, since we foundedHealth Care Renewal, we have noted striking examples of hospital leaders threatening their hospitals'fundamental mission and/or health care professionals'core values, which we dubbedmission-hostile management.  We also saw mission-hostile management affecting the broader health care industry, particularly pharmaceutical and device companies.  Most recently, the most s...

In this study, 129 bacterial isolates were obtained from the less and more weathered mica schist surfaces and the adjacent soil and characterized for mineral dissolving activity, population, and the linkage of rock weathering level and distribution of the bacteria. Among the 129 isolates, 112 isolates could dissolve biotite. The relative abundance of the highly effective Fe solubilizers was significantly higher on the more altered rock surface (89.6%) than in the soil (51.2%) and on the less altered rock surface (22.5%), while the relative abundance of the highly effective Si solubilizers was significantly higher in the so...
