How Air Pollution Can Lead To Weight Gain
I just read a study that stunned me. It suggested that the air we breathe is making us fat.   A researcher from Duke University placed two groups of rats in separate chambers. One group was exposed to Beijing’s super toxic air. That city has some of the worst air pollution in the world. The second group breathed filtered air. The two groups ate exactly the same diet. After 19 days, the rats exposed to the air pollution were 18% fatter. Their LDL levels were 50% higher and their triglycerides were 46% higher. This indicates high levels of fat in their blood. To make matters worse, their lungs were 25% heavier...

Why Everyone Is Suddenly Obsessed With Sour Beer
Sour beer is the hottest cold drink of 2017. The funky brew is the latest niche offering to take off in a market obsessed with finding ever more obscure and complex beers. In recent years, craft beers have soared in popularity, with particular varieties, such as extremely hoppy IPAs, gaining a strong following among a cadre of beer drinkers, who increasingly view beer with the discernment, vocabulary and sophistication once reserved for wine.

The Scientific Reason You’re A Picky Eater
For SELF, by Amy Marturana. We all know a picky eater or two. Maybe you have that one friend who refuses to step foot in a sushi restaurant even though she’s never tried it.

The mention of Nicaragua usually conjures thoughts of political instability and poverty but with the growth of tourism this perception is slowly changing.

Is Hating Cilantro Genetic?
by Justina Huddleston, food writer for the Menuism Blog You often hear people say "you either love it, or you hate it," about certain things, and with cilantro that certainly seems to be the case. Even self-professed culinary adventurers sometimes find themselves at a roadblock with the herb, complaining of a soapy or bitter flavor. Julia Child hated cilantro so much that she told Larry King in 2002 that if it made its way into a dish she was eating, she would just pick it out and throw it on the floor. Other people love the herb. Its unique flavor is found in cuisines all around the world, having spread across...

New research is aiming to reduce the water footprint and increase shelf life of potted and cut herb production in the UK. Focusing on a range of potted and cut herbs, including flat-leaved parsley, basil and coriander, the aim is to reduce the use of irrigation water during crop production, while improving the flavor and quality of the herbs. It has already been shown in other growing systems that substantial water savings can be made without detrimental impacts on crop quality. (Source: ScienceDaily Headlines)
