Coffee threatened by climate change, disease, pests
(American Chemical Society) According to connoisseurs, the tastiest of coffee beans come from the Coffea arabica shrub, a fragile weakling that is susceptible to diseases and pests. And climate change isn't making things any easier for the plant. An article in Chemical& Engineering News (C&EN), the weekly newsmagazine of the American Chemical Society, reports that although coffee producers and scientists agree that C. arabica is under siege, they don't agree on what to do about it.

These Are the Dirtiest Places in Your Hotel Room
You may want to pack some disinfectant wipes the next time you travel. When you stay in a hotel room, you usually expect that staff have cleaned it thoroughly after the last guest stayed there. But this is not always the case, and even regular cleaning can leave travelers open to other people’s germs, experts say. In one 2012 study presented at the general meeting of the American Society of Microbiology, 81% of surfaces sampled had some fecal bacteria. Researchers found that light switches and TV remotes were among the objects most heavily contaminated with bacteria, and toilets and bathroom sinks also had high level...

What Medtech Can Learn from Starbucks
In the medical device industry, it's common to see innovations that gain traction in the marketplace because of an unmet need it fills that clinicians have specifically asked for because they knew it would make their job easier in some way and lead to better patient outcomes. On the other hand, there are times that the marketplace goes gangbusters for something they would have never even thought to ask for. During a panel session on product design at MD&M West, Dave Saunders, used coffee as a prime example of that.  "If you ask people to describe their perfect cup of coffee they'll tell you 'rich, bold, ...

Here ’s How Drinking Hot Tea Could Increase Your Risk of Cancer
Smoking cigarettes and drinking too much alcohol both raise your risk for developing esophageal cancer, which affects the tube connecting the throat to the stomach.
