  • Fruits and Vegetables for Cataract Prevention

    Dr. Chris Hammond, the chair of ophthalmology at King's College, recommends to increase intake of fruit and vegetables to protect eyes from cataracts:

    "We found no beneficial effect from supplements, only from the vitamin C in the diet".

  • Obesity and Global Food Supply

    Jonathan C.K. Wells:

    "Obesity, like under-nutrition, is thus fundamentally a state of malnutrition, in each case promoted by powerful profit-led manipulations of the global supply and quality of food."

    The global obesity epidemic remains poorly understood, partly because it has emerged alongside persisting under-nutrition in many populations. As the limiting factor for economic growth switched to consumption, capitalism has increasingly driven consumer behavior inducing widespread over-nutrition. 

Albert Einstein

If people are good only because they fear punishment, then we are a sorry lot indeed. 

Animals

Animals are multicellular, eukaryotic organisms of the kingdom Animalia (or Metazoa). All animals can move spontaneously and independently at some point in their lives. Their body plan eventually becomes fixed as they develop, although some undergo a process of metamorphosis later on in their lives. All animals are heterotrophs: they must ingest other organisms or their products for sustenance.
