|8/23/2015 - Anyone who has lived with a dog can attest to the fact that dogs can sense when people are sad and will often seek to comfort them. However, evidence suggests that dogs might also be able to sense when people are ill or even dying and increase their comforting attention accordingly.
Even when humans...|
|8/19/2015 - A new study out of the University of South Florida (USF) confirms what many environmentalists and anti-GMO activists have been saying all along: Reducing biological diversity places humans and wildlife more at risk for infectious disease outbreaks.
While it's true people are living longer than ever...|
|7/14/2015 - If you needed just one more reason to trash your iPhone, this is it. Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak recently told a crowd of techies in Austin, Texas, that the future of humanity will predicate on artificially-intelligent (AI) robots keeping people as "pets" - and Wozniak says he's actually looking...|
|3/22/2015 - A Seattle architect named Katrina Spade has proposed a new solution for urban food production: convert the recently deceased into nutritious compost to feed the food crops.
The project is called the Urban Death Project, and it describes the process of turning dead humans into food as follows:

|10/7/2014 - In recent days, after news that the Ebola virus had spread to our shores, several U.S. officials have said that, despite the desire of millions of Americans to close our borders to travel from the affected West African regions, that just isn't going to happen.
One of those to call for a travel ban...|
|9/28/2014 - The United Nations isn't letting a good crisis go to waste, having recently endorsed the use of untested, experimental Ebola vaccines being rushed to market as this is typed.

|9/4/2014 - Are humans getting dumber? That is the finding of a new study which says that our collective IQs have fallen over the last decade, even while technology keeps getting "smarter."
According to a report in New Scientist magazine online, the study questions whether "our century-long rise in intelligence"...|
|8/19/2014 - Nature always finds a way. Despite the advanced technology that humans possess, nature always seems to be one step ahead. This is particularly true for drug-resistant fungi, a phenomenon threatening enough to demand further research.
Four years ago, Dutch researchers were the first to link the agricultural...|
|8/13/2014 - Planet Earth is on the verge of another mass extinction event, say scientists, and this time the cause is humans.

|3/12/2014 - Do women get breast cancer more often when their hormones are thrown out of whack? You bet. Are those cases more severe than others? The jury is still out on that one. What about thyroid tumors and ovarian cancer - can those come from eating meat and drinking dairy from cows that are given hormones...|
|3/7/2014 - Dogs have been called man's (and woman's) best friend, and a new brain-imaging study of dogs indicates one reason why: There are striking similarities in how dogs and humans -- and, perhaps, a number of other mammals -- process voice and emotion.
According to Wired, dogs, like humans, may have brain...|
|3/2/2014 - The FDA allowed 18 separate animal antibiotics to remain on the market even after concluding that they posed a "high risk" of leading to antibiotic resistance in bacteria that cause disease in humans, according to a new study by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC).

|9/28/2013 - The curse of being a critical thinker is that you can't turn it off, I've discovered. So you become a critical thinker about everything you've been told or taught, and as it turns out, most of what we've all been taught about genetics is a lie.
But don't take my word for it. Join me as we take an...|
|5/3/2013 - You know how the "Earth Day" story goes. The Cuyahoga River in Cleveland caught on fire. Wild birds were laying eggs so weak, they broke open before the chicks were ready to hatch.

|6/23/2010 - Protecting the environment isn't a "liberal" idea; it's everybody's business. Liberal or conservative, Democrat or Republican, the environment provides life support for us all, and if we fail to recognize that, we are truly doomed as a civilization.
To help explain this, I've put together a simple...|
|4/14/2010 - Birds such as sparrows, thrushes and warblers are apparently experts on preventing disease and optimizing their bodies to deal with stress.

|4/6/2007 - Humans are the only species on the planet who actually go out of their way to feed their children crap. All other animals instinctly seek out the best nutrition they can find. Birds find grubs, worms and insects to feed their young, honeybees painstakingly collect pollen and create a nutrient-rich superfood...|
|3/12/2007 - With modern humans engaged in highly destructive behaviors towards nature (pollution, toxic chemicals production, CO2 emissions, abuse of animals, use of Roundup herbicides, etc.), did you ever wonder what nature would do to humans if it had the chance? In a recent CounterThink cartoon called "Human...|
