Is Wine Really Healthier Than Beer?
This study led to expert speculation that the average wine drinker may eat healthier than the average beer drinker. If true, that could explain away many of the health advantages associated with wine. More recent research that controlled for diet and other lifestyle variables concluded that drinking moderate amounts of beer—usually defined as one per day for women and two for men—offers the same heart-health benefits as a like amount of wine. Meanwhile, studies have found that cheese and some other sources of saturated fat and cholesterol may not actually raise a person’s risk for heart disease and prema...

Study Suggests Standing Expends More Energy Than Sitting Or Lying
BOSTON (CBS) — A quarter of Americans sit for more than eight hours a day, putting them at higher risk for weight gain and early death, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

Researchers looked at 50 young adults and found that they expended about 10 percent more energy while standing than while lying down or sitting. There were no differences between lying and sitting. They say spending more time standing could be a simple strategy to modestly increase the number of calories burned. While standing may be healthier for you it shou...

Inside the Race to Build the World ’s First Commercial Octopus Farm
For decades, my father taught biology at Middlebury College in Vermont. One of his signature courses focused on invertebrates and, as a kid, I’d often tag along on class field trips to the Maine coast. Students would fan out across the rocky shore at low tide and count as many spineless creatures as they could—which, as it turns out, was pretty easy. There were dozens of invertebrate species to be found, including snails, crabs, starfish and, of course, lobster. I didn’t lay eyes on an octopus, however, until I was about 8.
