A plant-based diet may improve your health

By eating more plant-rich foods, a plant-eating diet can lower your risk of type 2 diabetes, a new study finds.

Researchers looked at more than 3,500 adults and compared their metabolic health to that of people who ate the plant-centered diet.

The study, published in the journal Nutrients, found that the plant food diet was associated with a lower risk of Type 2 diabetes.

Researchers said the results were interesting because they didn’t include information on whether the participants were obese or overweight, which might affect the results.

“The association of plant-eaters and type 2 diabetics is not as strong as the association between people who are obese or have other risk factors,” said lead author Jennifer M. D’Agostino, a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Colorado Boulder.

“This suggests that this type of dietary change may help to improve the metabolic profile and health of individuals who are overweight or obese.”

The researchers looked at information on the participants’ metabolic profile before and after a plant based diet.

They found that people who were plant-oriented had lower levels of triglycerides, LDL, and apoB, which can be associated with diabetes.

People who ate more plant foods had lower triglycerides and higher levels of HDL, which help regulate blood pressure.

People who ate less plant foods also had lower apoA-I levels, which are known to be linked to cardiovascular risk.

Researchers also found that those who ate a plant diet had lower fasting triglycerides (also known as the “good cholesterol”) and lower levels in the fasting blood glucose.

The study looked at whether the results would be similar in people who followed a more animal-based, plant-centric diet.

“It is important to note that plant-only diets are not equivalent to animal-only dietary interventions, such as a vegan diet,” D’Abostino said.

“The difference in these diets is not substantial, but is related to how plant foods are consumed and the nature of their nutrient composition.”

The study did not address the role that animal products might have in promoting type 2 disease.

The researchers said the findings suggest that people may be better able to avoid or manage type 2 Diabetes with a plant/animal-based dietary approach.

“We can make a lifestyle change to improve metabolic health,” D.D. wrote.

“Whether or not a plant focused diet is effective for prevention of Type II Diabetes is still being investigated.”SOURCE: michael d’agostino et al, Plant-based diets improve metabolic profile, Nutrients (2016).

Biome Ecology in the 21st Century: What to Know about the Changing Climate

The future of climate change is increasingly intertwined with biodiversity, according to a report by the Biome Ecology Network. 

The report, Global Ecology, takes a comprehensive look at the changes we are seeing globally in the biosphere and the impact these changes will have on biodiversity. 

Its authors, Dr. Richard Rimmer and Dr. Michael Wootton, describe how the global population is growing, the environment is changing and biodiversity is being lost, and how humans and other species are being impacted. 

While climate change has led to changes in species, the researchers say we can’t ignore biodiversity as a factor. 

“We must take seriously the fact that the impact of global change is more profound than we might expect,” the authors write. 

One of the main challenges is the decline of biodiversity, they write, as natural and human activities are disrupting the genetic balance and the ability of ecosystems to recover. 

As more people move into cities and suburbs, they say, “the ability of species to survive in the cities and communities is diminishing.” 

“Our research demonstrates that these changes are taking place at the same time that the species that live in the urban and suburban environments are being displaced by more intensive agriculture and urbanization.” 

It’s a similar story in the US, where biodiversity is under threat from “overconsumption, climate change, and urban development,” the report states. 

But the scientists say that the United States is different because of its history and because of the importance of protecting its wildlife. 

They also point out that “environmental impacts, especially biodiversity, are being driven by changes in population size and biodiversity, as well as by the spread of urbanization, which is increasing the risk of habitat loss and loss of biodiversity.” 

In their report, the authors say they will use data and analysis to help inform our understanding of the changes that are taking hold. 

So far, they’ve gathered data on changes in climate, soil, water, vegetation, biodiversity, and biodiversity abundance. 

According to the report, a recent analysis of data from the Global Ecology database indicates that in the past 100 years, we have lost approximately 8 percent of the world’s biodiversity.

The number of species that we now see on Earth is more than 3 times what it was 100 years ago. 

In the next 50 years, the study says, we could lose an additional 30 percent of biodiversity.

That’s a total loss of around 80 percent of species on Earth. 

It also indicates that biodiversity is declining in many parts of the planet, and is being threatened by climate change and urban growth. 

For example, the report says that biodiversity on the African continent is declining at a rate of 3 percent per year. 

On the other hand, the United Kingdom is experiencing a decline of 4 percent per the year, while the United Arab Emirates is at an even worse 7 percent per annum. 

However, the report says, the situation is changing slowly. 

This year, the world experienced its worst drought in the last 150 years, and in 2015, global biodiversity is expected to be a record low. 

Researchers have also found that biodiversity loss is accelerating. 

Climate change is also having a negative impact on biodiversity, with the number of animals and plants that have been killed by humans down by nearly half in the previous 100 years. 

These declines are particularly devastating to wildlife, the scientists warn. 

 “The loss of habitat for wildlife and plants, along with the loss of ecosystems that are already vulnerable to climate change will have a dramatic impact on our ability to recover biodiversity,” the scientists write.

“The future of our species depends on it.” 

The World Conservation Union, which represents the global conservation community, also has a statement in support of the report. 

Worryingly, the organization states that the loss and degradation of wildlife and habitat is already happening and that this trend will only accelerate in the coming years.

The World Wildlife Fund says that as we lose biodiversity and habitat, we lose out on opportunities to protect our species. 

Meanwhile, the U.S. government and the Department of Agriculture are looking into the issue, the Natural Resources Defense Council says in a statement. 

Both the Environmental Protection Agency and the US Department of Interior are also working to help address the problem. 

Biomass is the primary source of carbon-based energy for humans and animals, and has also played a key role in helping us fight climate change. 

With the growing human population and increased consumption of energy from fossil fuels, scientists say, we are putting our planet in danger. 

Drinking water is also in serious danger from pollution, the World Wildlife Foundation said.

Scientific Internship: The ‘Scientific Internship’ is Not a Job

Posted June 29, 2018 06:21:51This summer, I’ll be joining the prestigious Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Newcastle.

I’m excited to work in the department and have a great opportunity to explore how the world views the role of the scientist.

In the department, we have a broad range of scientific research interests, from the development of animal and plant models of human behaviour to the interpretation of molecular biology data to the development and implementation of scientific and public policy initiatives.

I’ll be working alongside the department’s scientists and researchers to provide support for their projects, and also providing input to our scientific and policy work.

At the same time, I will be supporting my research with a variety of academic and professional opportunities.

As an undergrad, I’ve been studying plant biology and my work has been recognised in the UK scientific literature, and the University has awarded me research fellowships, funding and scholarships.

This summer I’m looking forward to doing some of the things I’ve always wanted to do and being involved in the research I’ve so much loved.

It’s an exciting opportunity to work with my fellow students, with a broad variety of exciting projects.

I can’t wait to get started!

A special thanks to all the students, staff and researchers who have been working hard to make this summer such a successful one.

More to come.

How to write a story for a zombie movie

Writer-director Peter Berg has written a script for a sequel to the 2012 zombie movie “Dead Alive,” and he wants to make it happen.

Berg and his brother, John, have been developing the screenplay since August, but he’s been working on it at a faster pace than he expected.

The story focuses on a group of survivors of a zombie attack who, despite having little choice, decide to make a pact with a supernatural entity to get out of the situation.

Berg’s new script, titled “The Devil and the Man Who Killed Him,” has been described as a sequel of sorts to “The Dead Alive,” but with a new twist.

He tells EW that the story will take place after the events of “The Man Who Knocked Down the Moon.”

“I love the idea of a family of survivors who are in the middle of a horrible time, and the only way to get to the truth is to sacrifice one of them,” Berg says.

“The question is: Will that person survive?”

“I wanted to take the idea that you had to make that decision in the moment, when you’re facing a really dark situation,” he says.

He added, “I was like, ‘Oh, I want to write about the story that has the most potential to happen in this world.

“Dead Dead” has received mixed reviews, but Berg has remained optimistic about the sequel.””

I’m still optimistic,” he said. “

Dead Dead” has received mixed reviews, but Berg has remained optimistic about the sequel.

“I’m still optimistic,” he said.

“We’re still doing some very preliminary work on the script, and I think we’re getting there.”

“The Godfather: Part III” is out in theaters on May 31.
