Meet Benedict Allen, the explorer rescued by the Daily Mail against his will
Last year ’s expedition in Papua New Guinea ended in him falling ill, being rescued by the newspaper and facing accusations of imperialism. What drives him to seek out yet more adventures?Benedict Allen arrives dressed like an explorer: all in green, multi-pocketed jacket, sturdy trousers, a bag that could carry accessories in the Amazon. It is a somewhat anachronistic get-up for a meeting in central London, at the Savoy hotel, but very useful given that we want a picture of him in the gardens next to the Embankment, which, for our purposes, will double as a jungle.He takes the artifice like a trouper, pushing aside the ...

Avoid this “safe” ingredient
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is supposed to be protecting our food supply. But the sad truth is that it does very little to monitor what chemicals go into your food. And even when there’s science to prove the health risks of new ingredients, they drag their feet. It can take years… or even decades… before they pull harmful additives from the market.  When a processor wants to add a new chemical to food, the FDA doesn’t require any testing. The food company just sends a notice to the FDA. The notice says that the ingredient is &;dquo;generally recognized as safe” or GRAS.  In other ...

Saving olive ridleys of the Indian Ocean
Richard Aspinall talks to Martin Stelfox from the Olive Ridley project about protecting one of the world ’s smallest turtles from ‘ghost fishing’ in the MaldivesOne of the world ’s smallest turtle (some sources claim smallest is Kemp’s ridley) is also the most abundant, yet to me, it seems to be the hardest to find! I’ve dived on reefs across the tropics, with camera in hand, and have yet to encounter a single olive ridley. I’ve seen scores of hawksbills and greens, and even a few loggerheads, but the olive ridley, with its distinctive heart-shaped shell is an animal I’ve only come across in rescue centres....

15 Foods A Nutritionist Always Keeps In Her Fridge
By Cynthia Sass, MPH, RD Healthy eating is my foundation, and I like to think of a well-stocked fridge as pre-production for everyday life. Having the right mix of nutritious foods on hand helps me hit my daily target for veggies and fruit, and lets me throw together simple but balanced meals, so I don’t ever have to rely on takeout. To stock up for the week, I shop at multiple spots, including my local farmer’s markets, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, traditional supermarkets, and on I’d say I spend about $100 per week on groceries (some of the things I buy aren’t pictured because...

Sat-Fat Bait And Switch
The pattern of provocations, proclamations and click-bait innuendo related to saturated fat is fairly clear to anyone who reads past the headlines. It’s entirely clear to anyone who actually reads the studies that are blithely cited, and routinely misrepresented, in a show of pseudo-erudition (look at me; I can cite a scientific paper!). Just about every missive inviting you to eat more bacon-cheeseburgers and pepperoni pizza or douse yourself with butter is a bait and switch, and those that are otherwise- are simply wrong. What do I mean? Here’s a short list of the bait that draws you in, and the inevitably diverge...
