It affects everything about our bodies because they are made up of significant amounts of water. It’s one of the reasons people can go without food for several days, but they can’t go without water.

How Do You Know if a Child Is Traumatized?
While working at a mental health clinic in Harlem years ago, I got used to hearing the most traumatic stories I could have ever imagined. They were the normal way to live for many of my clients. One day a woman in her 40s, who lived in a drug den and had gone through a frightful marriage before her husband was imprisoned, asked me how she could know if her son was traumatized. As a then-inexperienced clinician, I took out the last version of the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) off my shelf the same way a cowboy would take out his pistol from his belt, ready to shoot off a diagnosis.

Not so robust: robusta coffee more sensitive to warming than previously thought
(International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT)) A new study of the plant that produces robusta coffee suggests its heat tolerance has been consistently overestimated. Worse yet, when temperatures just slightly cross this point, yields plummet. The findings suggest the multibillion-dollar coffee industry could be facing a much tougher future on even a slightly warmer planet. The study's findings contrast with current estimates, based on historical botanical explorations in Central Africa, that had suggested robusta had a higher temperature tolerance.

Coffee, cocoa and vanilla: an opportunity for more trees in tropical agricultural landscapes
(University of G ö ttingen) The cultivation of coffee, cocoa and vanilla secures the income of many small-holder farmers and also drives land-use change. In particular, cultivation in agroforestry, in which these crops are combined with trees that provide shade, is considered to have great potential for ecologically sustainable cultivation. Researchers at the University of G ö ttingen now show that the land-use history of agroforestry systems plays a crucial role in assessing the sustainability of agroforestry.
