Made to measure: why we can ’t stop quantifying our lives
From ancient Egyptian cubits to fitness tracker apps, humankind has long been seeking ever more ways to measure the world – and ourselves. But what is this doing to us?If anything exemplifies the power of measurement in contemporary life, it is Standard Reference Peanut Butter. It ’s the creation of the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and sold to industry at a price of $1,069 for three 170g jars.

The New Science of Forgetting
A baby zebrafish is just half the size of a pea. A recent look inside its transparent brain, however, offers clues to the far bigger mystery of how we remember—and how we forget. In an experiment that yielded insights into memory and the brain, a team of researchers at the University of Southern California taught the tiny creature to associate a bright light with a flash of heat, a temperature change the fish responded to by trying to swim away. Using a custom-designed microscope, the team then captured images of the animals’ brains in the moments before and after they learned to associate the light and the hea...

The Fight to Save the Embattled Monarch Butterfly
In the depths of the Californian winter, an ember of hope has flickered for the monarch butterfly, the charismatic and beloved visitor that has seemingly been on a graceful descent into oblivion. The annual mass migration of the orange and black butterflies to the coast of California, as well as a separate odyssey the creatures take each year to the mountains of central Mexico, is among the grandest of spectacles in the natural world. Images of butterflies adorn t-shirts, pottery, and confectionery sold at tourist hotspots that have sprouted up in places where the butterflies gather in such numbers that they cause the boug...

Weighing the Best Diet Options for IBD

Raman, who’s a gastroenterologist, physician nutrition specialist, and researcher, has closely studied the topic and reviewed the available evidence for dietary patterns that may be of benefit (or not) to patients. IBD includes Crohn’s disease, which can cause inflamm...

The Truth About Common Digestive Health Fears
Everyone experiences digestive problems now and then, and they’re nobody’s idea of a good time. In a survey of nearly 72,000 adults in the U.S., 61% reported having had at least one gastrointestinal (GI) symptom over the previous week, and within that group, 58% said they’d had two or more GI symptoms over the past week, according to a study in a 2018 issue of the American Journal of Gastroenterology. Because symptoms like constipation, heartburn, and abdominal pain are generally vague and often don’t have an obvious cause, those suffering tend to fear the worst. “People get very concerned abo...

The Mysteries and Underdiagnosis of SIBO
In 2017, shortly after she turned 32, Phoebe Lapine had just spent the previous three years overhauling her health to make up for her ailing thyroid, the result of unchecked Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. She was following a gluten-free diet, drinking kombucha and taking prebiotics, and finally feeling her best when she noticed peculiar gut symptoms starting to rear their head: burping during meals, stomach discomfort, and a bloated belly that simply would not deflate. She turned to a functional doctor who quickly gave her a diagnosis: small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), a gut condition not uncommon for hypothyro...

Consumer Health: Who needs a gluten-free diet and why?
March is National Nutrition Month, which makes this a good time to learn why some people need a gluten-free diet. Whole grains are an important part of healthy diet.
