G'Day Folks. One of the most frequently asked questions I get from people wanting to start a small backyard aquaponic system is "How many Fish can I grow in this barrel / tank".
The rule of thumb used in this clip will help to simplify the process enabling you to design and build a stable aquaponic system for yourself.
Cheers & happy growing folks. πŸŸπŸ… 🌱🌿

Your STOOLS reveal whether you can lose weight - Daily Mail

Fascinating.
Small study, association, yeah all the usual caveats but makes sense and fits in with a lot of other findings. Our western processed diet that many have suspected as causing trouble is of course a non-vegetarian diet.

Fascinating avenue of research to watch and another reason to be eating less meat and all your veggies!

Probiotic in Yogurt Reverses Depression
Researchers at the University of Virginia School of Medicine have reversed depression symptoms in mice by feeding them Lactobacillus , a probiotic bacteria found in live-cultures yogurt. Further, they have discovered a specific mechanism for how the bacteria affect mood, providing a direct link between the health of the gut microbiome and mental health.

Based on their findings, the researchers are optimistic that their discovery will hold true in people and are planning to confirm their findings in patients with depression.

β€œThe big hope for this kind of research is that we won’t need to bother with complex drugs and side effects when we can just play with the microbiome,” explained lead researcher Alban Gaultier, PhD. β€œIt would be magical just to change your diet, to change the bacteria you take, and fix your health and your mood.
