Farmland Regeneration and Sustainability

Friday, September 15, 2017

Research estimates that if current crop acreage and pastureland shifted to regenerative organic practices, a large amount of annual global CO2 emissions could be sequestered through photosynthesis and biology.

Homocysteine Science Update

Friday, September 08, 2017

Homocysteine is an amino acid intermediate in the production of two other amino acids, methionine and cysteine. Although homocysteine is naturally present in our bodies, too much homocysteine in the blood has been thought to affect cardiovascular health, which is where the research focused for years.

Science: Old Wounds & Behavioral Epigenetics

Friday, August 25, 2017

Epigenetic science now suggests that our ancestors' lousy childhoods, dietary deficiencies, and excellent adventures may have left a mark on our genes, which could help explain cultural and individual autosomal responses to stimuli.

Telomeres, Depression & Suicide

Zinc Deficiency & Essential Fatty Acids

Friday, August 04, 2017

Zinc deficiency was first described in humans in the early 1960s in people consuming plant-based diets. Since then, tremendous advances have been made both in our basic and clinical understand of zinc metabolism, and we now understand that zinc is used in ​more than 300 enzymatic reactions and multiple biochemical structural processes in the body.
