"A new study published in Science by Humphrey Yao, Ph.D. challenges this age-old concept of the female pathway as 'default' and shows that the development of femaleness is also an active process. The authors implicated a protein called COUP-TFII as a key player that is required to actively eliminate the wolffian duct in a developing female embryo in order to give it female characteristics."

Manure, whether fresh, old, or composted, is often declared a key component of sustainable agriculture. From countless trials, researchers have come to similar conclusions (Haynes and Naidu 1998). Manure use is promoted as a solution in discussions of sustainable agriculture topics including: soil fertility, soil health, organic farming, regenerative farming, carbon sequestration, and renewable resources.

When is manure application a sustainable practice?

The prestigious Mayo Clinic regularly gets itself into hot water across evidence-based medicine and skeptics circles (see here) for its heavy promotion of questionable science; Mayo is particularly entrenched in the complementary/alternative/integrative/functional medicine (CAM/IFM) movement that is taking academic medical centers by storm (it even has a peer reviewed publication about its CAM use). Mayo, like other famous clinics, seems more than happy to promote its clinic with low-to-no evidence modalities that have been re-branded under the CAM/IFM movement.

There's a nutrition video that Mayo has produced and is circulating around the social media spheres. I've seen it before but today it made me particularly annoyed so here we are...

"Clean. Free-from. Natural. Organic. Non-GMO. These marketing buzzwords featured on product packaging communicate to consumers that the products are healthful and better for the environment. Today's shoppers often rely on these claims more than nutrient content.

"However, buzzwords can backfire when they foster fear and scare consumers away from healthful, accessible, and affordable food choices."

The difference between hazard and risk, and advice on how to address irrational food fears.
