By how much would a simple, healthier diet reduce your risk of dying compared to a vegetarian and a vegan diet? A new study tried to answer this question by comparing these three diets across the world.
We’ve been guilty of polluting the environment with plastic for a long time and there’s an ever-increasing amount of data showing the extent of the problem. A very recent study assessed the presence of plastic debris in fish and shellfish on sale for human consumption in Indonesia and California.
In Indonesia, plastic was found in 28 per cent of individual fish and in 55 per cent of all species. The majority was plastic fragments but also considerable amount of plastic foam was found, accompanied by plastic film and plastic monofilament line.
