Do We Dare To Eat Lectins?
In The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, T.S. Eliot’s protagonist asks, chewing on mortality and the pangs of senescence, if he dares to eat a peach. We can all thank Dr. Steven Gundry for upping the ante, and asking if any of us dares to eat chickpeas or eggplant; apples or oats; beans or lentils; or for that matter, almost any fruit, many vegetables, and most beans, legumes, grains, and certain nuts. His answer is: no. His reason is: lectins. What are lectins? I am tempted to suggest to all Harry Potter fans that they are to us muggles what Nargles are to witches and wizards: an enigmatic if not ...

8 U.S. Solo Travel Destinations You Probably Haven't Thought Of
For Glamour, by Perri Ormont Blumberg. If pushing yourself out of your comfort zone is at the top of your agenda this year, booking a solo travel experience might be a good place to start. Friends weekends and romantic getaways are great—and often very necessary—but there’s something potentially life-changing about testing your own boundaries by exploring new places on your own.

Elon Musk Revolutionized Cars. His Brother Wants To Do The Same For Food.
NEW YORK ― Last month, Elon Musk laid out his “master plan” to transform Tesla into a clean energy giant. In a 1,483-word blog post, he outlined plans to meld his automobile company with SolarCity, the country’s largest solar installer, to create a one-stop shop for electric cars, batteries and solar-panel roofing. He’s not the only Musk with a grand vision. For the last 14 years, Kimbal Musk, Elon’s younger brother, has been quietly waging his own battle against industrialized food. While Elon built a tech empire in California, the younger Musk moved to Colorado and founded The Kitchen, an...

Why This Father Feeds His Son Freakish Fruit And Vegetables
Jordan Figueiredo’s son, Evan, hates salads. The 5-year-old, like many 5-year-olds, just can’t get into his greens. But if there’s one thing he can’t get enough of, it’s carrots with legs. Or peaches with noses. Basically, if it’s a fruit or vegetable that doesn’t look the way it’s “supposed” to, Evan is calling dibs. And the weirder it looks, the more he wants it. Evan gets this from his father. The elder Figueiredo works by day as a solid waste specialist for the Castro Valley Sanitation District, about a 40-minute drive outside of San Francisco, working to make...

These Cleveland Produce Distributors Are Taking Food Waste Into Their Own Hands
While Republicans failed to name helping the environment as one of its top concerns during the party’s convention in Cleveland last week, eliminating food waste is still a priority for the city ― particularly at the Forest City Weingart Produce Company. The produce distributor’s president, Andy Weingart, and his wife, Ashley, told The Huffington Post that they used to discard perfectly edible produce because grocery stores have such high cosmetic standards for the fruits and vegetables they sell.

"It's A Scandal" -Daryl Hall on Doctors Denying Chronic Lyme
Growing up a musically-obsessed child in the 80's, Daryl Hall was one of my biggest inspirations. A masterful, inventive songwriter with an ocean of soul, he set me on the path to being an artist, to never waste a word, and to sing because I mean it. With six number ones and five additional top ten hits throughout the 70's and 80's Daryl Hall and John Oates are the number one duo in music history. Still at the top of his game at 69 years old, Daryl has won legions of new fans with his hit MTV Live show Live From Daryl's House. In February of 2015, at my very sickest from chronic Lyme and Bartonella, after it was missed b...

'Brain Dictionary' Maps Where Specific Words Are Represented In The Mind
In this study, our goal was not to ask a specific question. Our goal was to map everything so that we can ask questions after that," said Gallant. "One of the most frequent questions we get is, 'What does it mean?' If I gave you a globe, you wouldn't ask what it means, you'd start using it for stuff. You can look for the smallest ocean or how long it will take to get to San Francisco." This "data-driven approach" still involves assumptions about how to break up language into different categories of meaning. To MIT neuroscientist Evelina Fedorenko, though, it's exciting that Gal...

A Nutritionist's Guide to Stocking a Healthy Kitchen

You know the ingredients going into your food, and there's no sneaky extra sodium, sugar or calorie bombs hiding in home-cooked meals. That being said, it can also be time consuming to make everything at home, not to mention the time it takes to go to the grocery store if all the elements aren't already in your kitchen. One way to make it a little easier is to ensure that your kitchen is always stocked with what you need -- ingredients that are satisfying to your taste buds and easy to prepare, whether you are enjoying a relaxing...

Drip irrigation rates tested for eggplant growth and yield
(American Society for Horticultural Science) Experiments assessed the effects of irrigation rate on plant growth and fruit yield in eggplant. Plants irrigated at 67 percent ETc produced fruit yields similar to those of plants irrigated at 100 percent ETc or higher rates, suggesting that eggplant may tolerate mild water stress. The study results showed a potential to save water by reducing current irrigation rates without negatively impacting fruit yields in eggplant. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

How A Powerful Anti-Bullying Message Became One Simple Emoji
There's no need to explain that bullying is horrible, but the problem might be worse than you realize. Kids who witness bullying are more likely to struggle with problems like substance abuse and truancy even if they're not bullied themselves, so the issue radiates well beyond the individual young people who experience abuse. A new initiative that launched in late October hopes to give those witnesses a simple way to express themselves and shut down bullying as soon as it starts.  Dubbed "I Am A Witness," the campaign is a collaboration between major tech companies and marketing agencies.

7 Steps to Living an Organic Lifestyle
