Food scientists find cranberries may aid the gut microbiome
(University of Massachusetts at Amherst) Many scientists are paying new attention to prebiotics, that is, molecules we eat but cannot digest, because some may promote the growth and health of beneficial microorganisms in our intestines, says nutritional microbiologist David Sela at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. In a new study, he and colleagues report the first evidence that certain beneficial gut bacteria are able to grow when fed a carbohydrate found in cranberries and further, that they exhibit a special nontypical metabolism.

Brad Pitt Joins Lineup Of Hollywood’s Leading Men Now Living In Recovery
First Iron Man, then Batman, and now – Tyler Durden? In a recent interview with GQ, leading man Brad Pitt announced that he had quit drinking and was now living a sober life. His honesty is an inspiration to the many people living with substance use disorder. The first time I saw Pitt on screen, he was playing Floyd, a long-haired, couch-surfing stoner in True Romance. Surrounded by smoke in every one of his scenes, Floyd was a burnout. He smoked a page of an important letter; he was immune to the threats of the mafia. Along with everyone else in the theater, I laughed when he yelled at his roommate to bring home bee...

Environmental Groups Take Trump EPA To Court To Force Ban Of Brain-Draining Pesticide
WASHINGTON — Three environmental organizations have asked a federal appeals court to force the Environmental Protection Agency to ban a widely used pesticide linked to brain damage in children. A motion filed Wednesday by Earthjustice on behalf of two other organizations challenges EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt’s decision last week to reject the scientific findings of his own agency and allow chlorpyrifos, an organophosphate insecticide used on fruits, vegetables and nuts, to remain on the market for agricultural use.

Bumble Bee Species Is First In Continental U.S. To Be On Endangered List
For the first time ever, federal officials have added a North American bumble bee to the endangered species list.

Historically, the pollinator spanned 28 states in the upper Midwest and Northeast, plus Washington D.C. and two Canadian provinces. Yet due to a handful of factors ― including the destruction of its native grassland habitat, disease, increased pesticide use, global climate change and intensive farming (which leads to a loss of crop diversity and flowering plants) ...

People who suffer from chronic urinary tract infections may want to put down the cranberry juice. The once-promising cranberry treatment is looking less and less like an alternative cure-all for UTIs, and more like a folk tale.

This is disappointing for the scientists urgently looking for new cures for this common infection. While antibiotics can cure UTIs, overuse can create anti...
