carbon capture

Conservationists are arguing that well-managed livestock and eating meat is part of the climate change solution. How so? Grazing animals produce healthier soils that can ‘sequester’ or capture carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and store it in the ground. Commonly called ‘mob grazing’, this allows farmers to produce more meat per acre, without using chemicals or grain feeds, resulting in healthier omega-3 enriched beef or lamb, too. In her book Defending Beef, cattle rancher Nicolette Hahn Niman argues that ‘cattle are not, in fact, a climate problem at all; instead cattle are actually among the most practical, cost-effective solutions to the warming of the planet.’…

Fact or fable? ‘Chicken soup helps coughs and colds by reducing upper respiratory tract inflammation.’ FACT: Studies show its carnosine content improves our airways.…

However, experts have issued a warning to women using unregulated compounded hormones, saying the treatment can be ineffective, costly and could put women at risk of cancer. Endocrinologist Susan Davis, professor of women’s health and president of the International Menopause Society says, ‘The issue is that the dose is a best guess… therefore the levels that might get into the bloodstream might be negligible – or enormous.’ A group of major international menopause bodies are set to release a global position…
