Understanding The Microbiome, Erica Sonnenburg, PhD. Microbiome: Gut Bugs and You. ISIN - International Society for Immunonutrition. Treating Crohn’s Disease With Diet. Inflammation has recently emerged as an important player in the development of age-related disability and many of our major chronic diseases including heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease.

Treating Crohn’s Disease With Diet

Now that laboratory tests such as C-reactive protein have been developed, we can measure the effects different foods and diets have on inflammatory markers. Most plant-based foods decrease inflammation. Processing destroys the anti-inflammatory effects of some (garlic decreases inflammation but garlic powder does not), but improves these effects in others (tomato juice decreases inflammation but whole tomatoes do not).

Thirty More Famous Stories Retold by James Baldwin

No other man of his time knew so much about the laws of nature; no other man understood the reasons of things so well as he. He learned by looking closely at things and by hard study. He was always thinking, thinking. Although he was one of the wisest men that ever lived, yet he felt that he knew but very little. The more he learned, the better he saw how much there was still to be learned. How to Grow Beans in a Plastic Bag.

STEM Activities: Tensile Bubbles. I’m always on the lookout for STEM activities with a WOW factor and today’s engineering project for kids probably tops that list.

I mean just look at the bubble below- yes, THAT IS A BUBBLE! And shhhh don’t tell anyone, it’s not too hard to make…. Ever since I saw this cubic bubble I’ve wanted to make a whole host of 3D shaped bubble wands to explore how the outer wand structure affects the shape of the inverted bubbles that form. It’s also kind of addicting to make them..…. My kids helped me make the wands but had much more fun making the bubbles.
