Billions With Nutrition Deficiency!?
Almost no one gets enough selenium. Officially, at least a billion — with a B — people have a selenium deficiency.1 But I suspect the numbers are much higher than that. You can’t get enough selenium from food alone anymore. That’s true even if you eat a healthy, varied diet. And you can thank Big Agra for that. With their harsh pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, and single-crop strategy, these massive farms have stripped the nutrients out of the soil. No nutrients in the soil mean no nutrients in the food. All of this makes it difficult — if not impossible — to get even some of the daily selenium you need to ...

Walnuts Slash Cancer Risk
A new study out of Marshall University found that eating two ounces of walnuts a day for two weeks slowed breast cancer growth or reduced the risk of developing the disease.1 In the study, researchers gave a group of women who had a breast biopsy two ounces of walnuts every day until they had surgery two weeks later. They found significant changes in the tumor’s gene expression in the women who ate the nuts compared to those who didn’t. This backs up earlier research which found that eating two ounces of walnuts a day could help cut breast cancer risk in half.2 Extracts of walnuts stopped the spread of breast cancer ce...

Sourcing A Wider Periodic Table

The Story Behind TIME ’s ‘Climate Is Everything’ Cover
To illustrate the dramatic effects of climate change on our interconnected world for the April 26 issue of TIME, we turned the cover canvas over to “an artist who paints without a paintbrush.” Malaysian artist Red Hong Yi spent two weeks creating an image that is part sculpture, part performance art. She and her six-person team constructed a 7.5 x 10-foot world map out of 50,000 green-tipped matchsticks. She then set the artwork on fire—representing how the global climate crisis touches all of us, no matter where we live. Photograph by Annice Lyn for TIME “The motivation behind it came from the ur...

Reproduction without pregnancy: would it really emancipate women? | Jenny Kleeman
It may sound far-fetched, but a breakthrough in Israel has brought us a step closer to creating artificial wombs for humansA team of Israeli scientists announced the mother of all inventions last week. Researchers from the Weizmann Institute of Science revealedin the journal Nature that they had successfully gestated hundreds of mice inside an artificial womb. They placed newly fertilised eggsinside glass vials rotating in a ventilated incubator, and grew the embryos for 11 days – the mid-point of a mouse pregnancy – outside their mothers’ bodies. The embryos developed normally; their hearts, visible through the glas...

Tiny crustacean redefines ultra-fast movement
(Duke University) Just the size of a sunflower seed, the amphipod Dulichiella cf. appendiculata wields a giant claw that snaps shut 10,000 times faster than the blink of a human eye. The claw makes up 30% of an adult's body mass and closes with an audible snap, creating water jets and sometimes producing small bubbles due to rapid changes in water pressure, a phenomenon known as cavitation.

‘I’m Anxious to Get Out and Compete.’ Senior Citizens Still Plan to Play in Travel Softball Tournaments During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Will Rogers, director of a senior softball tournament scheduled to take place in early June in Columbia, Mo., will be hosting an event that seems inherently dangerous. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, you’d be hard-pressed to find a public health expert who thinks a gathering of 60 teams from various states, with players ranging in age from 40 to 70-plus, is a good idea. The data could not be clearer: older Americans are most at risk of suffering fatal consequences of the disease caused by the novel coronavirus. However, Rogers, who will also suit up to play with the 65-and-over Kansas City Kids at the Missour...
