Are phytoestrogens harmful to the hormone balance?

Studies have shown that soya protein consumption has no significant effect on testosterone levels in men. This is because soya protein is rich in phytoestrogens. A 2010 study definitively concluded that consuming 20 grams of soya protein daily for 57 days did not affect testosterone levels in men (Hamilton-Reeves et al., 2010). Other studies investigating the influence of soya products on hormone levels in men also found similar results (Messina, 2010).

Dishwasher tabs contain many harmful chemicals

Surfactants: These substances help break down grease and food residues. If swallowed, they can irritate the mucous membranes and lead to nausea, vomiting, and diarrhoea. Sodium Carbonate (Soda Ash) is a common ingredient for its fat-dissolving and water-softening properties. However, eating or drinking it can irritate your throat and stomach, making breathing hard and causing you to throw up or have diarrhoea. Sodium Percarbonate: When water is mixed with it, hydrogen peroxide and soda ash are released. These chemicals bleach and clean. If you eat it, it can burn your lips and bowels, make you sick, and, in the worst cases, hurt your lungs and blood flow.

Fast, degradable, and climate-neutral – algae as a new bioplastic?

Heterotrophic bacteria such as Cupriavidus necator can already produce PHB bioplastic. These bacteria's energy source is the sugar obtained from crops. Cyanobacteria has a significant advantage in PHB production. To conclude, microalgae can fix sunlight and extract energy from it. As a result, PHB production is CO2-neutral. Indeed, it offers ethical and ecological advantages over using heterotrophic bacteria. PHB production by cyanobacteria is currently still in primary research mode. It could be years before it is ready for industrial utilisation. Last but not least, there is also the question of price. PHB production by heterotrophic bacteria is currently more cost-effective.

Black rice ring with vegetables

Rice is a healthy food. The black rice "Nerone" is grown in Italy. This variety gets its colour from the natural pigmentation of the outer grain layers. It supplies essential minerals and vitamins such as the relatively rare vitamin B9, skin vitamin E and cell-protecting carotene. A strong nutty flavour gives black rice its unique taste. Black rice has a high protein and fibre content and contains minerals such as iron, manganese, phosphorus and magnesium. Black rice can, therefore, be a valuable component of vegan cuisine. The Stirnrunzler recipe kitchen presents its own creation with black rice and vegetables, which can be flexibly supplemented with fried tofu or mushrooms, for example.

Regulate testosterone levels in a natural way

Sesame seeds are rich in phytochemicals and polyunsaturated fatty acids. Plant sterols ensure that the cholesterol level can be lowered naturally. Sesame seeds contain haematopoietic iron, bone-strengthening calcium, and selenium, a trace element that strengthens the immune system. Niacin is essential for regenerating skin, muscles, nerves, and DNA. Tocopherol (vitamin E) also protects against free radicals. Sesame is an essential source of protein, especially for vegetarians and vegans. The well-known natural scientist Dr Alfred Vogel avoided protein deficiency by eating enough nuts, sesame seeds, and almonds. Sesame seeds comprise around 20 per cent protein and a good half of high-quality fats.
