WITH carbs!!

That’s the hard line from Dr. Eran Elinav – immunologist at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel. His team studies nutritional genomics, a promising field of genetics that explains why you don’t lose weight on a given diet, even though your friend does.

most important plant in the world?

By

Marine phytoplankton is a microscopic marine algae that lives just below the surface of the ocean. Invisible to the human eye, it is now regarded by scientists at NASA as the most important plant on earth. Why? It’s responsible for 90% of the world’s oxygen and even our food supply.
