How to eat more green (and red and yellow) vegetables - Science News - ABC News. In Australia, less than one in 10 people eat enough vegetables.
This is tragic, given high vegetables intakes are associated with better health, including a lower risk of heart disease, some cancers, and type 2 diabetes. For every extra 200 grams of vegetables and fruit eaten each day, there's an 8 per cent reduction in the risk for heart disease, a 16 per cent risk reduction for stroke and a 10 per cent reduction in risk of dying from any cause, according to research using data from 95 individual studies. Multigrain, wholegrain, wholemeal: What's the difference and which bread is best? Analysis By Leah Dowling, Swinburne University of Technology Updated Wholemeal, wholegrain, multigrain, sourdough, rye, white, high fibre white, low GI, low FODMAP, gluten free.
With so many choices of bread available, how are we to know which is best for our health? Bread has always been a dietary staple in Australian households. Wholegrains are high in dietary fibre, which helps keep us feeling full. Diets high in wholegrains are linked to a reduced risk of health conditions such as excess weight and obesity, heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some cancers.

(ABC News) Diet to boost gut microbiome developed by Perth researchers after TV experiment. Updated An easy-to-follow diet designed to boost gut health has been designed by researchers at Perth's Edith Cowan University.
While the diet is not suitable for everyone — people with gluten or other intolerances, or those following a low fodmap diet, should not do it — it could give people who have not been feeding their microbiome well a much-needed boost. "Generally, people know when they have gut problems — they have bouts of diarrhoea or constipation, bloating, pain, distension," nutrition researcher Amanda Devine said. "People can use the [diet] to increase high resistant starch over a couple of weeks, and then you would be able to improve, hopefully, your bowel health, feel better.

In 2011, solar panel installation companies were flying high as generous federal rebate schemes boosted business. Inexperienced operators entering the market were cutting corners, rushing to complete jobs before subsidies dried up. Now, a few years on, some households that took advantage of those rebates may be experiencing the downside of dodgy work, including the risk of fire in poorly installed wiring of their solar photovoltaic (PV) systems.
