What ’s the Most Refreshing Drink That ’ s Not Water?
For about 30 summers, Mindy Haar worked as the head lifeguard at a sleepaway camp in the Catskill Mountains. The teenage lifeguards under her charge wouldn’t always remember to drink water, so she remembers constantly nudging them to guzzle more H2O. The reminders worked. “I don’t recall any of my staff becoming dehydrated,” says Haar, who is now chair of the department of interdisciplinary health sciences at New York Institute of Technology.

Cheap catalyst could help turn carbon dioxide into fuels
Imagine if carbon dioxide (CO 2 )—the primary cause of global warming—could be collected from smokestacks and turned back into fuel. Now, chemists report the discovery of a potentially cheap and stable catalyst that can efficiently split CO 2 into carbon monoxide (CO), a molecular starting point for plastics, diesel, and jet fuels. Because renewable electricity can power these reactions, the catalyst could help make commodity chemicals without burning fossil fuels. It could also help create a market for the vast amounts of CO 2 that companies are planning on capturing not just from smokest...

SGLT-2 Inhibitors for the Management of Heart Failure
Sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT-2) inhibitors have rapidly won a front seat in the management of heart failure for their ability to reduce cardiovascular death and heart failure hospitalizations, including in older adults. But of prime importance for geriatric patients is also the fact that the SGLT-2 inhibitors “work quickly and safely to help patients feel better,” said cardiologist Nicole M. Orr, MD.

New Guidelines Limit Added Sugars in School Meals for the First Time
The nation’s school meals will get a makeover under new nutrition standards that limit added sugars for the first time, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Wednesday. The final rule also trims sodium in kids’ meals, although not by the 30% first proposed in 2023. And it continues to allow flavored milks — such as chocolate milk — with less sugar, rather than adopting an option that would have offered only unflavored milk to the youngest kids.
