//Red meat

The World Health Organization is expected to say red meat is linked to cancer

"Eating too much red meat has been linked to health problems including shorter lifespans, heart disease, and various kinds of cancer."

In March, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) made headlines when it declared that glyphosate, one of the world’s most commonly used herbicides, “probably” causes cancer in humans.

But in October, the organization is expected to issue a report on a much bigger target: meat. And the industry is bracing for the worst.
A meat industry lobbying group says the threat of the classification is its "12-alarm fire."

How to stay cool this summer without maxxing out the air conditioner

Eat spicy or hot foods

In many of the world’s hottest countries, like India, Mexico, and Thailand, it’s normal to eat hot and spicy foods or drink hot tea to beat the heat. These foods cause the body to sweat, and when sweat evaporates, the body then cools down. Evaporation is key to this trick, so you may not want to try it in extremely humid climates.

Beverage Industry Sues to Stop San Francisco Health Warnings on Sugary Drinks

The beverage industry sued in federal court Friday to try to halt ordinances in San Francisco that would require health warnings for soda and other sugar-added drinks.

San Francisco city officials unanimously approved last month an ordinance requiring billboards or other advertisements for sugary beverages to include the language: “WARNING: Drinking beverages with added sugar(s) contributes to obesity, diabetes, and tooth decay. This is a message from the City and County of San Francisco.”

If they made the warnings across the board, I might support it, but there is sugar in everything we drink, added or not, with the exception of tap water. So yeah, label it all or don't bother.

//Health insurance

So, what prompted nearly $100 billion worth of mergers in just a few short weeks?

Why America's biggest health insurers are suddenly devouring each other

Less than a month after Aetna announced an agreement to buy Humana for $37 billion, we’re getting another health insurance mega-merger: Anthem is reportedly set to close on a $48 billion deal to buy Cigna.

The impact on consumers? Uncertain. Customers in some states will have a lot less choice (paywall) and could see rates rise, particularly in the markets for individual coverage.

What else would happen when you have a forced consumer base in the hundreds of millions? Should've just nationalized into the single payer to drive the costs down. Healthcare reform isn't over yet.

//Vacation

The smartest way to vacation, according to science

If you haven't already booked your summer vacation, there's some good news: Science can help you plan a getaway for maximum happiness and well-being.

See or do something new. As one of the researchers told Reddy, "Once we’ve already seen somewhere we’re not necessarily absorbing what’s new about it. People who always go to the same place will often sort of start to have memories blur." Even if you're on a staycation, planning a new experience will have more impact.
Researchers have been exploring how to plan getaways for maximum happiness.

//Malaria vacine

Good news!

World’s first malaria vaccine gets green light from Europe

European regulators have given their blessing to the world’s first vaccine for malaria after 28 years of development by GlaxoSmithKline and heavy investment from Bill Gates.

GSK began working on Mosquirix, also known as RTS, S, in 1987 and has since invested $365m with up to $250m more planned as it moves towards launch. A further $200m has come from the Malaria Vaccine Initiative, an offshoot of the Seattle-based Path medical charity, supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

David Kaslow, director of MVI, said Mosquirix proved it was possible for a vaccine to disable the Plasmodium parasite that causes malaria, establishing a foundation for further innovation.

Somewhat good news.  It's mostly only effective in young kids (which is okay because they're the ones who die most) and it reduces mortality by about 40%, was what I read elsewhere.  But a good start on a disease that kills half a million people a year.

Be with nature, take a nice walk  on the green side :)

How Walking in Nature Changes the Brain

"City dwellers also have a higher risk for anxiety, depression and other mental illnesses than people living outside urban centers, studies show."

A walk in the park may soothe the mind and, in the process, change the workings of our brains in ways that improve our mental health, according to an interesting new study of the physical effects on the brain of visiting nature.

//Nike FuelBand

Nike will pay $2.4 million to FuelBand buyers over claims it didn’t accurately count calories

Nike and Apple continue to deny the allegations. They said they wanted to settle the case in order to avoid future legal costs. Nike will give people who bought the gadget $15 in cash or a $25 Nike gift card in exchange for giving up rights to bring future legal action.

well done folks, keep it up!

Americans Are Finally Eating Less

"Perhaps the biggest caveat to the trend is that it does not appear to extend to the very heaviest Americans. Among the most overweight people, weight and waist circumference have all continued rising in recent years."

The declines cut across most major demographic groups — including higher- and lower-income families, and blacks and whites — though they vary somewhat by group.

As calorie consumption has declined, obesity rates appear to have stopped rising for adults and school-aged children and have come down for the youngest children, suggesting the calorie reductions are making a difference.

Here's something for the weekend :)

The Chemistry of Wine

If you’re stumped in the wine aisle of the store, you’re not alone. Every bottle has unique nuances of taste and smell. How can something made of grapes smell buttery or taste like grass? Learn about the complex chemistry behind wine.
