More Reasons Why Your Mom Was Right About Broccoli

You’ve been feeding your kids the broccoli that your mom asked you to eat. Here is one more reason why the fight is worth it: in a recent find, cruciferous veggies have been found to hold qualities that just might fight off tumors, but how? Jeff Bezos has been on the forefront of technology for a long time. He is now onto chips that power AI. Under the sea, scientists have just found the “platypus” of the crab world.

The human brain has fascinated scientists and biologists alike. It’s fast-reacting, and specific, neurons have been difficult to catch in real-time — until now. Researchers have found a new way to track the amazing things our brain does at such a fast pace that it’s almost like watching it happen instantly. Find out what these scientists are hoping to do with their findings, and how it all works, here!

Locavore vs. Vegetarian — What’s Better For the Planet?

(The Conversation)

Climate change is happening, and food plays a part in this. So, people have been doing their best to be more conscious of their food choices. This consciousness brought about a question — is it better to be a Locavore (where you only eat foods grown and harvested within a certain radius of your home) or a Vegetarian? Find out what researchers have found here!
