Do 'superfoods' really exist?
From blueberries to nuts and whole grains, antioxidant-rich miracle foods were, we were told a decade ago, the key to combating stress, disease and infection. But, inevitably perhaps, experts' opinions have now shifted to a more complex viewIn the early 1990s, a cookbook called Superfoods appeared in the bookshops. It was co-written by the alternative medicine practitioner, Michael Van Straten, who is one of a handful of people said to have coined what has become one of the most spuriously bandied-about marketing terms of our times.The book revealed Straten's "four-star superfoods", which "supply the vital b...

An owl's eye view of London | @GrrlScientist
Some of my plans for my last London visit in 2013I have returned to London for another too-short visit. This time, I was invited by the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) to celebrate the publication of their Bird Atlas 2007-2011, and of course, I will attend the Royal Society's 2013 Winton science book prize. These book-related ceremonies bookend my visit, which leaves me some time in the middle fpr other events.

Gluten-free Thanksgiving: Be alert ... but enjoy!
Gluten can show up in the least expected dishes. Dinner guests who are allergic, as well as their hosts, need to keep watch, but there are alternatives.Depending on who sits at your Thanksgiving table, you may already have figured out how to serve vegetarians or people allergic to nuts. But gluten-free is another matter. Increasing numbers of people are choosing to forgo gluten (or learning they must do without it), and the holiday — with its pie crusts and dinner rolls and stuffings — poses a challenge.

It offers some basic nutritional content of these products and compares them with breast milk, formula milk and some examples of common home-made UK foods.

Scientists discover key to easing aquaculture's reliance on wild-caught fish
(University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science) For the first time scientists have been able to develop a completely vegetarian diet that works for marine fish raised in aquaculture, the key to making aquaculture a sustainable industry as the world's need for protein increases. "This makes aquaculture completely sustainable," said Dr. Allen Place. "The pressure on natural fisheries in terms of food fish can be relieved. We can now sustain a good protein source without harvesting fish to feed fish." (Source: EurekAlert! - Social and Behavioral Science)

Asian Indians are one of the fastest growing ethnic groups in the United States, and roughly half a million people of Indian ancestry live in California — more than any other state. Individuals from this group are strongly predisposed to obesity-related conditions such as diabetes and heart disease, due in large part to physical inactivity, diets low in fruit and vegetables, and insulin resistance.   Among other racial and ethnic groups, research has shown that religious practices and religiosity have been associated with obesity and greater body weight, but no one had studied this potential link among Indians. ...
