The U.S. Is Sitting on a Mountain of Cheese

Move over bacon, we have a new food glut to deal with.

European dairy products are so cheap right now that the U.S. itself has become the new No. 1 customer for some products -- imports of EU butter doubled last year and rose 17 percent for cheese, according to the European Commission. All that excess supply is building up in U.S. refrigerators, especially as American dairy production heads to a record this year.

Why Are Your Gut Microbes Different From Mine?

To find out, scientists collected poop from thousands of people—but they ended up with more questions than answers.

There are tens of trillions of bacteria in my gut and they are different from those in yours. Why?

This is a really basic question about the human microbiome and, rather vexingly, we still don’t have a good answer. Sure, we know some of the things that influence the roll call of species—diet and antibiotics, to name a few—but their relative importance is unclear and the list is far from complete. That bodes poorly for any attempt to work out whether these microbes are involved in diseases, and whether they can be tweaked to improve our health.

Why do so many people dislike the word "moist"? This scientist has a theory.

Moist. Moisture. Moist. MOIST.

Moist is one of the most hated words in the English language. In 2012, theNew Yorker asked its readers on social media what world should be expelled from the language. "In the end, there was a runaway un-favorite: 'moist,'" the magazine proclaimed.

I know these people, but I think I know more who dislike 'clammy'.  It's an interesting question, because a word has to be both in popular usage and vaguely unpleasant.  'pussy' as in 'filled with pus' for instance is probably more unpleasant but too infrequent.  This is actually a measure of (prevalence * grossness).

McDonald's testing McNugget recipe without preservatives

McDonald's wants to take some of the mystery ingredients out of Chicken McNuggets.

The world's biggest hamburger chain says it is testing an artificial preservative-free version of Chicken McNuggets, which have practically become synonymous with hyper-processed foods since they were introduced in the 1980s. The company says it began testing the new recipe in about 140 stores in Oregon and Washington in March.

Are there health benefits to being overweight?

A heart doctor says overweight people can be healthy. A public-health professor says the dangers of extra weight are underestimated.

While most everyone agrees weight loss is a good goal for those who are heavy, some researchers now believe that fitness is more important than fatness when it comes to long-term health and longevity.

Girls are still afraid of math, even when they have plenty of female scientist role models

A new study shows that even when countries where lots of moms have high-status STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) jobs, math anxiety for girls is significant. What’s more, the gap between girls’ and boys anxiety in math is bigger in more developed and equitable countries.

In Italy, one in three pizza makers isn’t Italian

According to data from Coldiretti, Italy’s main agricultural organization, at least 35% of all pizzaioli (link in Italian) aren’t from Italy. In Milan, further data shows, half the pizza shops (link in Italian) are owned and run by foreigners.

Egyptians, in particular, are big on the business. Like many Mediterranean cultures, Egypt has a long tradition of bread-making, which translates pretty perfectly to making pizza dough. An estimated 20%, or 20,000, of all pizzaioli in Italy are Egyptian. In Milan, in 2010, there were 119 pizza chefs from Egypt and only 31 pizza makers from Campania, the region surrounding Naples.
In Italy, you may be eating pizza made by an Egyptian.

no more excuses, you got 60 seconds to exercise! :)

1 Minute of All-Out Exercise May Equal 45 Minutes of Moderate Exertion

In this new experiment, in fact, 60 seconds of strenuous exertion proved to be as successful at improving health and fitness as three-quarters of an hour of moderate exercise.

The Paper: http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0154075
Sixty seconds of intense exercise provided the benefits of three-quarters of an hour of moderate cycling.

Why So Many Smart People Aren’t Happy

It’s a paradox: Shouldn’t the most accomplished be well equipped to make choices that maximize life satisfaction?

There are three things, once one’s basic needs are satisfied, that academic literature points to as the ingredients for happiness: having meaningful social relationships, being good at whatever it is one spends one’s days doing, and having the freedom to make life decisions independently.

But research into happiness has also yielded something a little less obvious: Being better educated, richer, or more accomplished doesn’t do much to predict whether someone will be happy. In fact, it might mean someone is less likely to be satisfied with life.

+John Bump I agree that the choices you make determine your level of happiness! Happiness is all about choice. One guy could lose his house today & he becomes severely depressed & kills himself, then another guy with the same situation may choose to be happy he still has his friends, family, & job despite losing his house! There's people in poor nations who are happier than Americans despite having a lot less material things!
