In the face of the growing threats posed to ecosystems by climate change, scientists in the US have put forward an "ultra ambitious" proposal to rewild parts of the American West by reintroducing wolves and beavers. Their plan follows President Joe Biden signing an executive order for his America the Beautiful policy that involves a conservation effort to save 30% of water and land in the US by 2030. The administration's plan is to address "a catastrophic extinction crisis that threatens the biodiversity of our planet and the health of the natural systems that supply our food, water, and other resources". It comes as NASA satellite images have revealed the impact on the largest reservoir of water in the US, Lake Mead , of the most severe drought in decades. In a journal article published in BioScience, titled Rewilding the American West , 20 scientists propose rewilding large reserve areas owned by the US federal government to address these concerns. … [Read more...] about Scientists propose rewilding the American West by reintroducing grey wolves and beavers

The practice of intermittent fasting has been gaining traction in recent years as an effective way to stimulate weight loss . It’s supposed to help make the body more efficient in how it burns and uses fuel, rather than forcing it to lose weight. The idea is to go without food for a prolonged period of time – say, 14 hours – to force your body to start devouring fat. It takes up to about five hours for the body to finish absorbing and digesting and after that period, it goes into a ‘post-absorptive state’, which lasts up to 12 hours after your meal. That’s when you enter a fasted state – and it’s then that your body finds it easier to burn fat because your insuline levels are low. Whether or not it works, well…there are arguments both for and against taking up intermittent fasting. But if you do want to give it a go, there’s some new research that suggests you should probably stop eating after 3pm to have the best chance of dropping the kilos. Researchers from … [Read more...] about Revealed: the best time to stop eating if you want to maximise weight loss

Counting calories is hardly anyone’s favourite pastime. Can you take CBD when you're on antidepressants? What you need to know Though if you really need to lose weight, it’s been considered a necessity for years and the only way of effectively shedding pounds. But according to new research, strict counting might be no more effective than – increasingly popular – fasting diets, in which you eat 500 calories every other day while eating normally on others. The most famous version of these being the 5:2 diet , in which two days are fast days and the remaining five in the week ones in which you can eat normally. A randomised clinical trial at the University of Illinois in Chicago has found that people who take part in fasting diets lose about the same amount of weight as those who do strict calorie counting. Involving 100 obese adults, the study observed the effects of alternate-day fasting on weight maintenance and cardiovascular disease risk. One group took … [Read more...] about Fasting every other day could be as effective as calorie counting, a study has found
Eating normally for five days a week and taking in just 500 calories (600 for a man) for the other two sounds like the perfect diet. But a number of health experts say it’s just a fad. The 5:2 diet is a form of intermittent fasting and claims to promote weight loss and other health benefits, including giving your digestive system a break and reducing the growth hormone that leads to ageing. However, former professional athlete Richard Phillipps, founder of Embody Fitness (www.embodyfitness.co.uk), says 5:2 is just another excuse for poor nutritional habits. ‘Although there’s some evidence to show that 5:2 can help you to lose weight in the short term,’ he says, ‘a diet such as this isn’t sustainable in the long term and might have serious health implications further down the line.’ ‘More importantly, though, is not considering the long-term health implications of consistently eating the wrong foods on your normal days,’ he adds. ‘Being allowed to regularly consume … [Read more...] about Fast or feast: Is the 5:2 diet all it’s cracked up to be?

When she was growing up, film-maker Gurinder Chadha was captivated by a photograph which took pride of place on the mantelpiece in her family’s front room in Southall, west London. For years she assumed the dashing man in a jewel-bedecked turban must be a relative; only later did she understand his true significance. “He was Maharaja Sir Duleep Singh, the last king of the Sikhs,” she says. “He ruled Punjab, my ancestral home – vast, powerful territories stretching from Afghanistan to China.” That is, until Duleep Singh was deposed by the British Raj, exiled to Britain as a teenager and forced to give the Koh-i-Noor diamond, the most dazzling of his dynasty’s treasures , to Queen Victoria. For Chadha’s family, that photograph was symbolic not just of past glories from the land of their forefathers, but of the deeply complex shared history between two nations – Britain and India - that had brought them as immigrants to this country. “As soon as you mention the word ‘Empire’, people … [Read more...] about Gurinder Chadha: ‘People get defensive about the British Empire but it’s our shared history’
