No, Yellowstone ’s Supervolcano Isn’t Going to Wipe Out Life on Earth Anytime Soon
If you’re worried a supervolcano lying beneath Yellowstone National Park could erupt and plunge the planet into a volcanic winter, you shouldn’t be. While a future eruption — a prospect widely reported this week after new research — is possible, geologists say it’s incredibly unlikely. The odds that Yellowstone’s sleeping supervolcano will erupt within a century and cause massive devastation are one in 10,000, which is about as likely as a very large asteroid hitting Earth, according to Jacob Lowenstern, a research geologist at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). “It’s not imp...

Pregnant women 'should avoid sleeping on back in last trimester'
Conclusion This observational study suggests a mother's sleep position may influence their baby's activity in late pregnancy. Most mothers sleep on their left side, but babies were found to be slightly more likely to be actively awake if women slept on their right side. If they slept on their backs, babies were slightly more likely to be quietly asleep. These are interesting findings, but there are a few points to note: In all maternal sleeping positions, the foetuses were in a state of active sleep more than 80% of the time. Although there was a statistically significant difference in the amount of time babies spent qui...

Childhood obesity soars worldwide
Conclusion This is a huge report with data from around the world. It found that, while obesity among children has clearly increased globally, the picture is variable from one country or region to another. It's encouraging that the report found obesity levels among countries such as the UK are levelling off. However, that still leaves millions of children obese or overweight, which could put their health at risk in years to come. More needs to be done to reduce those numbers. More urgent is the situation in countries that have seen a rapid rise in childhood obesity that shows no sign of slowing. It is also important not to ...
