The Secret of Effective Motivation
There are two kinds of motive for engaging in any activity: internal and instrumental.  If a scientist conducts research because she wants to discover important facts about the world, that’s an internal motive, since discovering facts is inherently related to the activity of research. If she conducts research because she wants to achieve scholarly renown, that’s an instrumental motive, since the relation between fame and research is not so inherent. Often, people have both internal and instrumental motives for doing what they do. LEARN MORE

Factory Farmed Chickens: The Hidden Cost of Cheap Chicken 

Americans eat a phenomenal amount of chicken, more than any other meat. Those of us over 50 can still remember when chicken was a treat for special occasions because it was more expensive than beef. Today chicken is the cheapest meat, and its consumption has doubled since 1970. LEARN MORE

Which is Healther – Salmon or Spam?

Apparently, 3 out of 10 people guessed Spam. Before you scoff, know that you could have been one of those 3 people if, instead of seeing the package, you would have only been allowed to view the nutrition facts panel. LEARN MORE

Study Questions Fat and Heart Disease Link
Many of us have long been told that saturated fat, the type found in meat, butter and cheese, causes heart disease. But a large and exhaustive new analysis by a team of international scientists found no evidence that eating saturated fat increased heart attacks and other cardiac events. LEARN MORE
The Quest for a Natural Sugar Substitute
On a Sunday evening last September, stevia became famous. In the final episode of “Breaking Bad,” an image of the sweetener filled the TV screen. Lydia emptied the packet into her mug of camomile tea, not knowing that Walt, her former partner, had poisoned it. “How are you feeling?” he later asked. “Kind of under the weather, like you’ve got the flu? That would be the ricin I gave you. I slipped it into that stevia crap that you’re always putting in your tea.” LEARN MORE
World’s Number 1 Herbicide Discovered in U.S. Mothers’ Breast Milk
In the first ever testing on glyphosate herbicide in the breast milk of American women, Moms Across America and Sustainable Pulse have found ‘high’ levels in 3 out of the 10 samples tested. LEARN MORE
New Anti-GMO-Labeling Bill Would Deny You Your Right to Know
For anyone who wants to know whether there are GMOs in the food supply, a new bill introduced by Congressman Mike Pompeo (R-KS) is essentially a “slap in the face of all average citizens,” as former Stonyfield Farms CEO Gary Hirschberg called it. LEARN MORE
Eating Disorders in the Online World
The internet can be a place where people with eating disorders seek and find reliable information about what they’re doing to their bodies, about how their experiences are typical of the disorder they suffer from, about what recovery entails and how to embark on it; it can be a place where they seek and find support from others who have gone through the same thing and come out the other side, or are going through it and want to be free of it too. But the online world can also be a place where sufferers encourage each other to be ill ‘better’, where support means spiralling ever deeper into the pathological cognitive and behavioural patterns that maintain physical deterioration. LEARN MORE
Are You Programmed to Enjoy Exercise?
For years, scientists have been bedeviled by the question of why so few people regularly exercise when we know that we should. There are obvious reasons, including poor health and jammed schedules. But researchers have begun to speculate that genetics might also play a role, as some recent experiments suggest. LEARN MORE
Why Do “Farmers” Want To Keep Trans-Fats in Your Food?
 The FDA is close to deciding that partially hydrogenated fats should be removed from the American food supply. This is a good thing. Partially hydrogenated oils (PHOs) contain trans-fats, which are the worst type of fat for your cardiovascular health. LEARN MORE
Eating legumes helps to lower bad cholesterol
Eating a daily serving of cooked beans is linked with lower levels of “bad” low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, according to new review study from researchers in Canada. LEARN MORE
