Ants, Birds and Bacteria Can Teach Humanity About Teamwork
USC Viterbi School of Engineering researchers believe that some of the most complex technologies of our times, such as robotics or cognitive computing, can learn a thing or two from swarms of ants, pigeons and bacteria.
Outdated Survival Strategies Causing Daily Stress on Your Immune System
Human beings, like animals, are born with a primal instinct of survival. As infants and young children we rely solely on the ability of others to keep us safe in our new and unfamiliar environment. No matter what circumstances we are born into or how we are cared for, we must learn to adapt in order to survive. As we learn how to adapt to our environment as helpless infants and young children, we create the basis for how we will adapt to the world as we grow and explore more and more of it.

Avoiding The Sun's Rays Is A Misinformed Trend Causing Global Rise In Cancers
A causative link between the sun and cancer does not exist and never has. The cancer and sunscreen industries have made it their mission to convince the world that sunlight is a primary cause of skin cancer, when in fact it has been shown to prevent it and many other forms of cancer.
A Greater Emphasis On Nuts To Replace Animal Proteins Reduces Inflammation
The Romans considered many nuts food of the gods. A few decades ago nuts were valued for their protein, vitamins, and minerals. Then in the 1980s they were seen primarily as fat-and-calorie landmines--to be avoided by all except those trying to gain weight. But during the last decade, nuts have been on the rise, thanks to research pointing to their potential heart benefits. A greater intake of nuts, especially in place of animal proteins, could reduce inflammation - a key process in the development of cardiovascular disorders, a study has found.

Learning Nutritional Geometry Will Be The Model Of The Future To Understand Health
Considerable research has been aimed at identifying modifiable determinants of chronic diseases. But existing models for measuring health impacts of the human diet are limiting our capacity to solve obesity and its related health problems, claim two of the world's leading nutritional scientists in their newest research.
6 Billion People Do Not Meet Vitamin E Levels Necessary For Cognitive and Cardiovascular Health
